• Booker T Thinks SmackDown Star Is Already A WWE Hall Of Famer
Former WWE Champion & current SmackDown Superstar Sheamus has been on the main roster for 13 years and is one of the most accomplished superstars in the company.
2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T is a big fan of him and praised his work on a recent episode of his podcast.
Booker T said he thinks Sheamus has done a lot, that would already make him a WWE Hall Of Famer, and then went on to say the following:
“He has always been in my fave 5. He’s a worker. He’s not one of those guys that is just looking to be at the top of the card. He’s a soldier and soldiers normally find their way to the top of the card.
As of late, he’s been able to change his character. Irish pub drinking man with his boys hanging out whatnot. Sometimes when you’re in the business you’ve got to be able to shift gears for a second.
I’m one of the guys who wanted to see the ‘Celtic Warrior’ again.
He can actually go out there and have those matches with a Drew McIntyre, another big guy, and go to another big guy.
This is going to be the year of the heavyweight. I love seeing Sheamus go out there and perform at this level. And, then again, I love what he tried to do also by switching his character and giving me some entertainment for a minute as well.”

• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 71st birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran “Pretty Boy” Doug Somers (Real name: Douglas Somerson).
Most Old School Fans remember Doug Somers from his AWA days, where he formed a Tag Team with “Playboy” Buddy Rose.
Their feud with the Midnight Rockers Marty Jannetty & Shawn Michaels is legendary and they had some of the best matches in the long and illustrious history of Verne Gagne’s AWA American Wrestling Association territory.
In 1991, he had a brief stint in WCW as “Doug Summers”, where he lost to Van Hammer at the annual Halloween Havoc PPV.
Doug jumped ship the following year in 1992, when he worked for the World Wrestling Federation as an enhancement talent, putting over WWF Superstars like Bret Hart, Tatanka, Jim Duggan, El Matador, Owen Hart & The Big Bossman.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
