• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (April 2, 2010) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2010, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran “Mortis” Chris Kanyon (Real name: Christopher Klucsarits) at the age of 40 due to committing suicide by antidepressant overdose.
After working as a Jobber for the World Wrestling Federation in 1994, he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1995, where he formed the tag team “Men At Work” with Mark Starr.
In 1997, he debuted a new gimmick called Mortis, where he was wearing an evil mask and was managed by James Vandenberg (aka Sinister Minister aka Father James Mitchell) and feuded with Glacier.
When Vince McMahon bought WCW in 2001, Kanyon was brought in and became a member of the WCW/ECW Alliance faction during the Invasion storyline, even becoming the WCW United States Champion and WWF World Tag Team Champion in the process.
He was released in early 2004 after not being used on TV for a while.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE

• Brock Lesnar Called Out Vince McMahon For Not Postponing WrestleMania 36, Stood Up For The WWE Locker Room & Everyone’s Health
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar was not in a pleasant mood during last week’s WrestleMania 36 tapings at the Performance Center, according to Slice Wrestling.
Lesnar had issues with Vince McMahon making everyone attend the tapings and going ahead with WrestleMania despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Lesnar demanded that he wants his match with Drew McIntyre to be filmed immediately and then he’ll head home.
However, Lesnar was told there’s a strict shooting schedule and he’ll have to wait for his turn.
This led to Lesnar going to Vince and interrupting him in a meeting, and telling him exactly how he felt about all of this.
Lesnar reportedly said Vince cares more about the money from this event than his wrestlers’ health, and used some vulgar language as he wasn’t pleased with Vince being this greedy.
Other WWE wrestlers appreciated Lesnar standing up for them, but they all knew only Lesnar could get away after saying all of this to Vince.
