• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 94th birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend The Crusher (Real name: Reginald Lisowski).
From 1949 to 1988, The Crusher wrestled for various old school territories, such as the American Wrestling Association (AWA), the World Wrestling Association (WWA) and the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF) / World Wrestling Federation (WWF).
In 1994, he was inducted into the short-lived WCW Hall of Fame and it’s safe to say, that it’s only a matter of time before he will also be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
July 11, 1926 – October 22, 2005
• Brock Lesnar Got His Revenge 11 Years Ago Today
11 Years ago today, Brock Lesnar defeated Frank Mir at UFC 100 PPV to retain the UFC Heavyweight Championship and achieved redemption (as Mir made Lesnar tap out in his UFC debut).
With this huge fight headlining the PPV, UFC 100 got 1.60 million PPV buys and became the most bought PPV in UFC history (this record got broken in 2016 when Conor McGregor faced Nate Diaz at UFC 202 with 1.65 million PPV buys, and the UFC 202 record got broken in 2018 with the Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov fight at UFC 229 drawing 2.4 million buys).
Lesnar refused to touch gloves before the fight and brutalized Mir, and won via KO. Lesnar was still worked up after the fight and shouted “Talk all the sh*t you want now, motherf***er”. Lesnar was very angry because Mir mocked Lesnar a lot heading into this fight, and even mocked Lesnar being a WWE wrestler.
In the post fight interview, Lesnar said the following:
“Frank Mir had a horseshoe up his a$$. I told him that a year ago. I pulled that sumb*tch out and beat him over the head with it! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!”
Lesnar even took a shot at Bud Light (UFC’s sponsor), but that has been edited from the UFC 100 DVD.
