• Brodus Clay Reveals What The Undertaker Said To Him When He Was Given The Funkasaurus Gimmick
Former WWE Superstar Brodus Clay was given the character of “The Funkasaurus” in 2012.
Under this gimmick, he won the “Best Dancer Of The Year” Slammy Award.
During an appearance on Talk Is Jericho, Brodus revealed The Undertaker’s reaction to his new character:
“Taker never liked it. Taker’s advice to me was, he came up to me. He was like ‘Fall’. [I’m like] ‘What?’
He’s like, ‘When you go out there, you debut tonight, fall. You fall on the stage. They’ll scrap the whole thing and you can get back [to being a monster].’
I just loved that. When I said ‘Would you fall?’, he said ‘No’ (laughs).”
Brodus signed with WWE in 2010 and was released in 2014. He had a 4-year run in TNA / IMPACT Wrestling as well.
He’s currently the NWA World Television Champion under the ring name “Tyrus”.

• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 80th birthday of Old School WWF/NWA Legend “The Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff (Real name: Oreal Donald Perras).
In 1971, he defeated then WWWF World Heavyweight Champion Bruno Sammartino for the title in what is said to be an even more shocking moment than what we witnessed at WrestleMania XXX when Brock Lesnar broke The Undertaker’s Streak.
Those who were in Madison Square Garden on January 18, 1971 said that you could hear a needle drop after Koloff had defeated Bruno via pinfall.
The Russian Bear has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, a very deserving honor that they missed out on while he was still alive.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & REST IN PEACE
August 25, 1942 – February 18, 2017
