• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Legend Hillbilly Jim (Real name: James Morris) celebrates his 68th birthday today.

Hillbilly Jim first joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1984 as a (kayfabe) Fan, who (in storyline) got trained by WWF World Champion Hulk Hogan.

He retired from active professional wrestling in 1990, but later returned in 1992 to co-host WWF Prime Time Wrestling and again in early 1996 to become the manager of The Godwinns.

Hillbilly Jim came out of retirement to enter the Gimmick Battle Royal at WrestleMania X-Seven, but was eliminated by the eventual winner, The Iron Sheik.

In 2018, Jim was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HILLBILLY JIM!

• Chris Jericho Reveals How He Convinced The Undertaker To Let Him Kiss Him

While speaking on his Saturday Night Special on Facebook, former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho revealed that he wanted to kiss The Undertaker on his lips during WWE’s Japan tour back in the day.

When they went to Roppongi (a party district), Le Champion told Taker he wanted to kiss him.

“I was super loaded, as you can imagine. There might have been some other narcotics involved, maybe. Me and Taker were sitting at the back of the bar, kind of, in the private area. And I just had it in my mind that I had to convince Undertaker to let me kiss him…on the lips.

And I spent like an hour. I was like, ‘Dude, let me kiss you once. Come Onnnn.’ And he finally allowed me to kiss him on the cheek. That was his compromise.”

Jericho revealed that he sat on Taker’s lap, hugged him and kissed him on the cheek.
