• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (April 28, 2002) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2002, we lost Old School NWA Legend Lou Thesz at the age of 86.
He’s considered one of the greatest pure technical mat wrestlers of all time, some might even argue he was the greatest.
If you combine all of his 3 NWA World Heavyweight Championship reigns, he was the Champ for more than 10 years combined.
In 2016 he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their 1st annual “Legacy” Wing inductions.
† REST IN PEACE LOU THESZ!

According to Slice Wrestling, Drew McIntyre is the current favorite to win the Men’s Money In The Bank 2019 ladder match.
McIntyre recently made the following tweet:
Considering what happened last week on #Raw it appears outside forces are preventing me from getting my first opportunity at the Universal title. A chance at winning #MITB would put the power completely in my hands…you can only delay the inevitable
