• Old School NWA Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 86th birthday of Old School NWA Legend Mr. Wrestling II (Real name: John Walker).
After touring the NWA territories during the 50s, 60s, 70s & early 80s, he was signed by Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation in 1984, when Vince bought ‘Georgia Championship Wrestling’ to get their timeslot on TBS.
The idea was to present GCW talent like him and The Spoiler on the WWF’s own version of ‘World Championship Wrestling’, the TV show they took over from GCW and later sold to Jim Crockett Promotions, so the fans would see some familiar faces that kept them interested in the new product.
Wrestling II didn’t last long and left the WWF in 1986.
He has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, but due to the young kids of today not knowing who he is, it will likely be an induction into the ‘Legacy Wing’.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
September 10, 1934 – June 10, 2020
• Brock Lesnar Has A Major WrestleMania Challenge In Front Of Him
During a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier, who recently retired from UFC, said that he wants to fight Brock Lesnar in a match at WrestleMania.
Lesnar was originally scheduled to fight Cormier for the UFC Heavyweight Championship back in 2018 after doing an angle with him at UFC 226, but the fight never happened.
Below is what Cormier said about facing Lesnar:
“I’m done, I want to wrestle with Brock in the WWE, that’s where I want to fight Brock. I want to fight him on his terms. You know, two old guys in the UFC Octagon going at it, 43-41-year-old guys seem fun, boy, me and Brock at WrestleMania that would be a good time.”
