• CM Punk Seemingly Doesn’t Agree With Ric Flair Calling Shawn Michaels The Greatest Worker Of All Time
While speaking to WWE UK to promote tonight’s Legends Night episode of RAW, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair named Shawn Michaels as the greatest worker in pro-wrestling history.
Here’s what he said:
“It’s not arguable anymore, Shawn is the greatest worker in the history of our business. I think everybody would give that to him.”
He also gave some praise to Ricky Steamboat.
“For my money, in the ring, I’d put him and Ricky Steamboat in a class by themselves. I always liked being around Shawn. As far as a guy in the ring I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody better.”
Former WWE wrestler CM Punk saw Flair’s comments on Twitter, and responded to them with a GIF which said:
“Yeah, well, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.”

• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF/WCW Veteran Jim Powers (Real name: James Manley) celebrates his 63rd birthday today.
Powers used to be the Tag Team Partner of Paul Roma in a team called “The Young Stallions” from 1987 till 1989, before becoming a singles wrestler, often used as a jobber to the stars, until leaving the World Wrestling Federation in 1994.
He then joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1996, where he became a mid-carder again, managed by famous Old School manager Teddy Long, before he turned into an enhancement talent yet again and was let go by WCW due to a neck injury he had in 1998.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIM POWERS!
