• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend “Sycho” Sid Justice (Real name: Sidney Eudy) celebrates his 58th birthday today.
Sid Vicious made a name for himself in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling as a member of The Skyscrapers and later The Four Horsemen, before he joined the World Wrestling Federation as ‘Sid Justice’ in 1991.
He ended up main eventing his first ever WrestleMania against Hulk Hogan in 1992 and became Hogan’s first WrestleMania opponent, who kicked out after the legendary Big Boot / Legdrop finish.
After disagreements with The Ultimate Warrior in their post-WrestleMania feud, Sid quit the promotion and returned to WCW a year later in the spring of 1993.
At Starrcade 1993, Sid was already booked to defeat WCW World Champion Big Van Vader for title, but unfortunately he was fired before the PPV after an altercation with his former Horsemen companion Arn Anderson, where both were stabbing each other with scissors.
By 1995, he returned to the WWF as HBK’s bodyguard, but turned on Shawn right away and became a member of ‘The Million Dollar Corporation’ faction.
Sid defeated Michaels for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series 1996 in Madison Square Garden and (after losing the belt at the Royal Rumble) a few months later defeated Bret “The Hitman” Hart to win his second and last WWF World Title, that resulted in him main eventing yet another WrestleMania, this time against The Undertaker.
He had one more run with Turner’s WCW, where he returned yet again in 1999, but this time a botched move ended his main stream wrestling career in the main event of the ‘WCW Sin 2001’ PPV.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SID!
• Fired WWE Wrestler Attacks RAW Wrestler At Live Event
As we all know, Rhyno was recently fired after he lost a “Loser Gets Fired” match against Heath Slater on RAW.
Rhyno addressed his retirement rumors in a video on RAW and noted that he isn’t retiring and will remain with WWE till January.
Below is what Rhyno said:
“Hey guys, this is Rhyno here. I just want to clear up a rumour that I’ve seen going on for about a week now on Twitter about me retiring. I am not retiring. I’ve no plans on retiring. It apparently started after I competed in a match with Heath Slater and the loser is fired from Raw, which Heath Slater won, a match that we were put in by Baron Corbin.
So, I just wanted to clear up that rumor and say I’m not retiring. I am fulfilling my contractual obligation with WWE – the December Live Events & January Live Events – I’m going to continue and after that I don’t know whether I’ll compete in WWE or somewhere else.
Your guess is as good as mine, so hopefully I cleared up any rumors and I look forward to seeing you guys at the Live Events.”
