• CM Punk Was Scheduled To Wrestle Current AEW Star On The Night He Quit WWE

CM Punk made his final WWE appearance at Royal Rumble 2014, where he competed in the 30-man Royal Rumble match and lost.

Soon after that appearance, he quit WWE on the road to WrestleMania 30 (where he was scheduled to face Triple H) and was eventually fired from the company.

During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, current AEW wrestler & ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli (fka Cesaro in WWE) revealed that was scheduled to wrestle Punk the night Punk quit.

Below is what Cesaro said:

“Here’s a fun fact. Do you know when the last time I was supposed to wrestle Punk was? The day he walked out.

Oh, he told me [he was leaving], I saw him in the hallway as he was on his way out.”

Punk is currently suspended from All Elite Wrestling (and also out of action with a triceps injury) for starting a fight backstage at the All Out 2022 pay-per-view.

• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday

Old School Wrestling Legend Gerald “Jerry” Brisco celebrates his 76th birthday today.

For most of his career Gerald formed a Tag Team with his real life brother Jack Brisco and together they wrestled as “The Brisco Brothers”.

During the 60s, 70s & early 80s they toured the territories and wrestled for promotions like Georgia Championship Wrestling, Jim Crockett Promotions and Championship Wrestling from Florida.

They also held minority interests in Georgia Championship Wrestling, which they used (in addition to Jim Barnett’s vote) to overrule Ole Anderson and sell the company and their weekly “World Championship Wrestling” TV show to Vince McMahon in 1984. The infamous “Black Friday” followed, when McMahon and the WWF were seen on TBS.

The Brisco Brothers also joined the World Wrestling Federation that year but retired a few months later in early 1985.

Gerald then started to work as a booker & road agent for the WWF and years later during the Attitude Era became famous again as one of Vince McMahon’s “stooges”.

In 2008, both brothers were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by John “Bradshaw” Layfield.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GERALD BRISCO!
