• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Legendary Old School WWF Character Brother Love (Real name: Bruce Prichard) celebrates his 57th birthday today.
His gimmick was based on most of the infamous televangelists (TV preachers) of the 80s.
Brother Love was an on-screen character on World Wrestling Federation TV from 1988 until 1991, but also returned to the WWF/WWE occasionally afterwards, namely in 1995, 1997, 2001, 2003 & 2018.
He was The Undertaker’s very first manager in late 1990 & early 1991, before Paul Bearer took over.
Bruce Prichard ended up reinventing himself in 2016, when he started his now famous podcast “Something To Wrestle With”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROTHER LOVE!
• Father Complains After AEW Wrestler MJF Shows Middle Finger To His 7 Year Old Son, Cody Rhodes Reacts
At a recent Meet & Greet, AEW wrestler MJF showed middle finger to a 7 year old fan.
You can watch it below:
Tom Galmartin (father of this 7 year old) said the following to AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes about this incident:
“I tried to laugh it off knowing he’s just in character…but it really upset him. I know that’s his gimmick but he’s only 7 & doesn’t understand.”
Cody responded with the following statements:
“DISCLAIMER: If you have a meet/greet or inquire media wise for MJF, you’ll get MJF.”
“Talent have freedom of expression so please don’t think anybody is going to act any different than they do on TV.”
“Hey Tom. Just give me your name and city and we will have some will-call tickets for the next time we are in your neighbourhood, plus I’ll personally come by and say hello during the show.”
A fan then tweeted the following to Cody:
“The meet and greets are for everyone, if they weren’t they’d have a disclaimer or an age restriction. MJF should’ve known not to do that sh*t. F*ck around with adults, sure, but stay away from the kids.”
Cody replied the following:
“Actually, no. This was a paid meet/greet where you specifically chose the individual. We would never send MJF on a free publicity activation for this very reason, he’s immature and doesn’t represent the brand.”
TMZ reached out to MJF for a comment on this situation and he replied the following:
“F*ck them kids.”
