• Old School WWF Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 57th birthday of Old School WWF Veteran Ludvig Borga (Real name: Tony Halme).
He wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation as an upper mid-carder in 1993 & early 1994 and was eventually going to be pushed as a main eventer, but then got injured and left the company.
Borga’s biggest accomplishment during his time in the WWF was ending Tatanka’s 2 year winning streak.
After his Professional Wrestling career was over, he became an MMA fighter, losing to Randy “The Natural” Couture at ‘UFC 13: The Ultimate Force’ on May 30, 1997, before becoming a politician and even got elected into the Parliament of his home country, Finland.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † R.I.P.
January 6, 1963 – January 8, 2010
• Chris Jericho Possibly Injured At NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 14
AEW World Champion Chris Jericho managed to defeat Hiroshi Tanahashi at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 14 – Night 2, but at what cost?
During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Jim Valley revealed that Jericho noted during the post-Wrestle Kingdom press conference that he’s pretty banged up after his match with Tanahashi:
“Jericho came in [to the press conference] and said his jaw was dislocated — Jericho’s jaw. He also said that his knee is swollen and he’s gonna have that looked at. He thought that some of the dragon screws did that according to Jericho.”
We’ll keep you updated regarding Jericho’s status.
