• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 62nd birthday of Old School WWF Legend Mr. Perfect (Real name: Curt Hennig).

After winning the AWA World Heavyweight Championship in 1987, Curt joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1988, where he became known as Mr. Perfect.

After a successful run with the WWF until 1993 and on-off non-wrestling appearances in 1994, 1995 & 1996, Hennig joined the rival promotion, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1997, wrestled for them till 2000, before he returned home to the WWF in early 2002.

Curt was the son of Old School AWA Legend Larry “The Axe” Hennig and the father of WWE PG-era wrestler Curtis Axel.

The former Intercontinental Champion passed away in 2003 at the young age of 44, but he keeps on living in the hearts of the Old School WWF/WCW fans.

In 2007, he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his old friend, Baseball Legend Wade Boggs.

• Brodie Lee Reveals How Dedicated Vince McMahon Is

During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho podcast, new AEW wrestler Brodie Lee (fka Luke Harper in WWE) gave an example of how dedicated Vince McMahon is.

Lee talked about how WWE writers wanted The Bludgeon Brothers (Luke Harper & Erick Rowan) to carry their mallets at the Greatest Royal Rumble PPV in Saudi Arabia.

However, there was fear of the mallets getting lost or the tag team getting in airport trouble for it.

This led to Vince McMahon putting the mallets in his own jet on the trip to Saudi Arabia.

The Bludgeon Brothers then went on to defeat The Usos to retain the SmackDown Tag Team Championship at the Greatest Royal Rumble.
