• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 12, 2010) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2010, Old School Wrestling Veteran Grizzly Smith (Real name: Aurelian Smith Sr.) passed away at the age of 77.
Grizzly Smith wrestled for several territories all over North America during the 60s & 70s, winning several championships in the process.
Smith was the father of Old School WWF Legend Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Old School WWF Veterans Sam Houston & Rockin’ Robin.
His personal life was quite disturbing as he once r*ped his then girlfriend’s 13 year old daughter, who then gave birth to Jake Roberts, but since Smith married the young girl, his crime wasn’t prosecuted.
Rockin’ Robin stated in a shoot interview, that her own father sexually abused her, starting at age 6 or 7.

• Chris Jericho Rips A Fan For Saying He’s Trying To “Butter Up” Undertaker & Goldberg
At WWE Super ShowDown 2019, The Undertaker defeated Goldberg in the main event of the show.
The match didn’t live up to its hype because Goldberg suffered a concussion during the match and this led to a lot of negative reaction from fans on Social Media.
However, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho said some good things about the two legends who gave everything they had in their “first time ever” encounter.
Below is what Jericho tweeted about this match:
Both @undertaker & @Goldberg are once in a lifetime, TOP LEVEL performers and money draws. And even though they might not be at their peak & had an outing that wasnt perfect, they are still better than most. I think @MickJagger & @OzzyOsbourne would agree. #Respect
