• Brock Lesnar Impressed With Young SmackDown Wrestler
At Survivor Series 2019, Brock Lesnar defended the WWE Championship against Rey Mysterio in a singles match.
During the match, Rey’s son, Dominik Mysterio, got involved in the match and had a physical interaction with Lesnar. At that point, Dominik wasn’t an official WWE wrestler.
During a recent interview on Start Today podcast, Dominik (who is now a SmackDown Superstar) revealed that The Beast was impressed with his skills in the ring.
Here’s what Dominik said:
“After I got my a$$ beat, I went to say thank you to everyone. I remember Brock telling me that he was surprised because I knew more than he thought I was going to. With how I placed myself and things I would do to feed into things.
I don’t think they were expecting me to know what I was doing. That was really cool right off the bat.”

• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 66th birthday of Old School WWF Legend Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart.
After touring the NWA territories for a while, he joined the World Wrestling Federation in early 1985 and was soon paired with Bret “The Hitman” Hart as a Tag Team that ended up becoming one of the greatest teams in professional wrestling history, The Hart Foundation.
They teamed until 1991, when both Jim and Bret went on to concentrate on their singles careers, but Neidhart soon ended up teaming with Bret’s younger brother Owen Hart as ‘The New Foundation’, a team that didn’t last very long but was eventually continued in 1994 & 1995 when they were both heels.
Jim returned to the WWF for a short stint in 1996, portraying the masked wrestler “Who”, but eventually had his last major run with the World Wrestling Federation in 1997, when he was a member of the ‘Hart Foundation’ faction, alongside Bret Hart, The British Bulldog, Owen Hart & Brian Pillman, before jumping ship to WCW in early 1998.
Neidhart was married to Ellie, a sister of Bret & Owen, and their daughter – as seen on WWE’s reality show ‘Total Divas’ – is WWE Veteran Natalya.
In 2019, The Anvil was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as one half of The Hart Foundation.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
February 8, 1955 – August 13, 2018
