• CM Punk Calls Pro Wrestling “FAKE” Now
During a recent interview on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, former WWE Wrestler CM Punk revealed that he calls Professional Wrestling “FAKE” all the time nowadays.
Please keep in mind that while Pro Wrestling is fixed, scripted & predetermined, most of the veterans & legends of the business would not tolerate anyone calling their sport the infamous F-word.
Here’s what Punk had to say:
“I very much look at wrestling nowadays as theater. There might have been a time when I might have been offended when somebody said that, right?
It’s like calling it fake. There was probably a time when I’d get mad if somebody called it fake.
Now I call it fake all the time.
People [who dislike wrestling being called fake] would use the argument like, ‘So are movies’. My argument is, ‘Yeah, but Al Pacino didn’t go do pressers dressed as Scarface with his bullsh*t accent trying to get you to believe that he was really a Cuban immigrant that built a cocaine empire.’ You know, yada yada yada.”
CM Punk has a lot of heat with fans nowadays, because he always badmouths the sport that turned him into a millionaire, which a lot of people consider him being ungrateful.

• Old School WWWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWWF Legend “Superstar” Billy Graham (Real name: Eldridge Coleman) celebrates his 78th birthday today.
After a career as a bodybuilder, where Graham became a good friend of Arnold Schwarzenegger, he became a Professional Wrestler in 1969 and had his debut in early 1970.
Billy Graham wrestled for Vince McMahon Sr.’s World Wide Wrestling Federation between 1972 and 1983, with the company being renamed into World Wrestling Federation in March of 1979.
Superstar held the WWWF World Heavyweight Championship for almost a year, from April 30, 1977 until February 20, 1978.
Billy returned to the WWF for one last run in 1986 but a hip replacement surgery eventually got the better of him, so Graham retired from active professional wrestling in late 1987 and became a color commentator, before leaving the company in 1989.
In 2004, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by “The Game” Triple H.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILLY GRAHAM!
