• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School Lucha Libre Veteran El Dandy (Real name: Roberto Gutiérrez Frías) turns 57 today.

He was one of the luchadors brought to World Championship Wrestling during the Monday Night Wars by Eric Bischoff, in order to present the Mexican style of professional wrestling to the American audience.

El Dandy wrestled for WCW from 1997 till he was let go in the spring of 2000.

Most Old School 90s Wrestling fans remember him for a comedy promo by Bret “The Hitman” Hart, where he asked Mean Gene “Who are you to doubt El Dandy?”, after announcing him as his challenger for the United States Title.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EL DANDY!

• Cody Rhodes Explains Why He’ll Never Bash NXT Like Kenny Omega Did

During a recent AEW Dynamite media call, Cody Rhodes was asked about Kenny Omega bashing NXT and its wrestlers.

Below is what Cody said:

“Well, I know that my father was rather instrumental in bringing the developmental brand up from the OVW-like situation or the FCW situation that I was in as a trainer, and making it more of a brand.

You’ll never hear me disparage NXT. There’s a locker room full of my friends over there and literally if any of you have done the Performance Center tour, you’re going to happen in front of my dad’s boots.

I think Kenny was just having a bit of fun and it was something much in character that’s been going on with Being The Elite. I have nothing but good things to say about the developmental brand, and their success they’ve had, and their continued success.”
