• Drew McIntyre Comments On CM Punk Joining AEW
During an an interview with Pro Wrestling Bits, RAW Superstar Drew McIntyre was asked about his thoughts on CM Punk joining AEW.
Here’s what the former WWE Champion said:
“If anything, it’s good for wrestling. That’s what I’m all about. I was outside the company between 2014 to 2017, working in the independents and with Impact [Wrestling], and just trying to make wrestling a healthier, better place, and it’s healthy right now.
It’s an incredible place. Obviously, WWE is still at the top and leading the charge, and anything that can make it better, I’m all about. So, yeah, it makes a positive difference. It gets a thumbs up from me.”

• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 79th birthday of Old School WWF/NWA Legend “The Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff (Real name: Oreal Donald Perras).
In 1971, he defeated then WWWF World Heavyweight Champion Bruno Sammartino for the Title in what is said to be an even more shocking moment than what we witnessed at WrestleMania XXX when Brock Lesnar broke The Undertaker’s streak.
Those who were in Madison Square Garden on January 18, 1971 said that you could hear a needle drop after Koloff defeated Bruno via pinfall.
The Russian Bear has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, a very deserving honor that they missed out on while he was still alive.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & REST IN PEACE
August 25, 1942 – February 18, 2017
