• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Veteran X-Pac (Real name: Sean Waltman) celebrates his 48th birthday today.

Waltman originally started to do televised jobs on WWF TV in 1993, using ring names like “The Kamikaze Kid”, “The Cannonball Kid” or just simply “The Kid”, before getting an upset win over Razor Ramon on May 17, 1993, which resulted in him becoming “The 1-2-3 Kid”.

In September 1996, he jumped ship to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where he became known as new nWo member “Syxx”, but eventually returned to the World Wrestling Federation the night after WrestleMania XIV.

Now known as X-Pac, Waltman was brought back to replace Shawn Michaels in D-Generation X, with Triple H taking over as the leader of the faction.

X-Pac stayed with the company till August 2002 and later wrestled for Total Nonstop Action! (now known as iMPACT Wrestling) in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006 & 2010.

In 2019, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, alongside other D-Generation X members Triple H, Shawn Michaels (inducted for the second time), Chyna (†) & The New Age Outlaws.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY 1-2-3 KID!

• Brock Lesnar Set To Miss SummerSlam 2020, 2 Major Matches Cancelled

WWE’s next pay-per-view in their ‘Big 4’ line-up is going to be SummerSlam at the Performance Center next month.

WWE wanted to make it a big event by moving it to another location, but the situation due to the Coronavirus pandemic didn’t allow them to do so.

Plans for the event aren’t clear yet due to recent events. WrestleVotes is reporting that Brock Lesnar may not return for the event due to absence of fans and some big matches have been cancelled for the show as well.

Edge’s injury played a big part in the change of plans, as he was reportedly set to have ‘The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever’ against Randy Orton at SummerSlam originally.

“Was told this weekend the projected SummerSlam card that creative had in place a few months ago has been torn up. Edge’s injury played a big part, as well as the lack of audience – no fans means WWE has little desire to have Lesnar on the PPV. 2 major matches scrapped.”

Original plan for SummerSlam was to have a rematch between Drew McIntyre & Brock Lesnar, but it looks like we’re now getting Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton.
