• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW Veteran Johnny “The Bull” Stamboli (Real name: Jonathan Hugger) celebrates his 42nd birthday today.
Stamboli was originally trained at World Championship Wrestling’s famous wrestling school, the WCW Power Plant and debuted on WCW TV in late 1999.
In 2000, Johnny became a member of The Natural Born Thrillers, but in March 2001 WCW was sold to Vince McMahon and his contract was bought out by the World Wrestling Federation right away.
After being sent to their developmental promotion HWA, he then wrestled on WWE TV from 2002 till 2004, mainly as a member of The Full Blooded Italians (F.B.I.), a gimmick-stable from ECW, that was resurrected with him, Chuck Palumbo & Nunzio (fka Little Guido).
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHNNY STAMBOLI!

• Chris Jericho On Possibility Of Disgruntled WWE Stars Joining AEW
During a recent interview with Gary Cassidy, Old School WWF Legend & All Elite Wrestling Superstar Chris Jericho was asked about the possibility of disgruntled WWE stars joining AEW.
Below is what Jericho said:
“It’s different. We’re not doing it that way where anyone who doesn’t like what they’re doing in WWE is automatically guaranteed a job in AEW. We will look at every talent on an individual basis. There’s some guys we’d love to have in WWE, and there’s some guys we probably wouldn’t take.
Obviously we haven’t even had a show yet and our roster is already very deep. When you talk about the Double or Nothing show, how many people can you book on that show? If you have 60-70 guys, you end up with the same problem as WWE.”
Speaking of Jericho, he’s set to face Kenny Omega at next month’s AEW Double Or Nothing PPV.
