Drew McIntyre vs Brock Lesnar - Night 2 Of WrestleMania 36

• Old School WWF Diva Celebrates Her Birthday

Old School WWF Diva Ryan Shamrock (Real name: Alicia Webb) celebrates her 41st birthday today.

Webb was brought into the World Wrestling Federation in January 1999 to portray Ryan Shamrock, the kayfabe sister of “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” Ken Shamrock.

The funny thing about that was, that in real life the two were actually dating at that time.

Ryan Shamrock was involved in storylines with Billy Gunn and Val Venis, before forming PMS, The Pretty Mean Sisters, alongside Jacqueline & Terri Runnels, before Ryan was released in July 1999.

Alicia Webb then joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in late 1999 as Symphony, the valet of The Maestro, but just like her WWF run, her run in WCW also lasted only a few months, before she was released again.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYAN SHAMROCK!

• Drew McIntyre Defeated Brock Lesnar At WrestleMania 36 Because Of Released Wrestler’s Injury

As seen in the main event of Night 2 of WrestleMania 36, Drew McIntyre defeated Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship.

However, that wasn’t the original plan.

According to Tom Colohue, WWE officials were planning to give former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez another match against Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship, this time in the main event of WrestleMania.

However, Cain’s injury prevented that match from happening, and Drew McIntyre replaced him and “The Chosen One” finally ended up getting his big moment (unfortunately it happened in front of zero fans in attendance).

Cain Velasquez was recently released from WWE due to budget cuts.
