• Old School WWF Jobber Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Jobber Barry Horowitz celebrates his 61st birthday today.

Most fans remember Barry Horowitz as one of the most famous jobbers in professional wrestling history, after doing jobs for the World Wrestling Federation from 1987 until 1997.

Horowitz even wrestled on 3 WWF pay-per-views: `SummerSlam 1995´, `Survivor Series 1995´ and `Royal Rumble 1996´.

The last we ever saw him, was when he wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1997 till 2000.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARRY HOROWITZ!

• Edge Accomplished A Historic Feat By Coming Out Of Retirement

During a recent conference call, WWE Hall of Famer Edge revealed that he made history by coming of retirement this year, as he’s the only man in any kind of contact sport to return after having a triple fusion neck surgery.

Below is what Edge said:

“I had to very quickly wrap my mind around the idea that WWE and wrestling was done for me in 2011.

If I didn’t wrap my mind around that, if I didn’t accept what everyone told me – ‘you can’t do this’, I think it would have been very unhealthy, so I needed very quickly to find things to do and to move on with life and try and really just close and finish off that chapter. The book was still continuing, but that chapter was done.

So as the years passed and I was feeling really good and I started putting the work in that I thought would be needed to come back and to go through the whole process of coming back and getting a clearance to come back, it was such a challenge for me and I thrive on challenges, so then it became the challenge to get back and do something that no one has ever done before in any sport or any form of entertainment – come back from triple fusion neck surgery.

So that challenge got me through and once I got back into the fold, then, again, that night at the Royal Rumble – that’s when it all started becoming real.”

Edge will now have his first singles match in 9 years next weekend at WrestleMania 36, where he’ll face Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match.
