• Former 24/7 Champion Sets A Guinness World Record

Former 24/7 Champion, WWE celebrity Rob Gronkowski set a Guinness World Record by catching a football that was dropped out of a helicopter at 600 feet.

Here’s what FOX News reported about it:

“Coming off an epic performance in Super Bowl LV, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski pulled off an incredible, record-breaking catch at his alma mater’s spring game earlier this week.

Gronkowski, who played college football at the University of Arizona, was brought in to get the players on the team hyped up for the annual scrimmage, and that consisted of the former All-Pro setting a Guinness World Record for ‘the highest altitude catch that’s ever been done in the world’, according to Arizona head coach Jedd Fisch.

A football was over 600 feet up in the air in a helicopter that was circling around Arizona Stadium in Tucson. Gronkowski failed to haul in the first two footballs that were dropped from the sky, but after he secured the third ball, Arizona players and coaches ran up to Gronkowski in excitement and he spiked the football into the turf, which is what he famously does after scoring touchdowns.”

NFL Legend Rob Gronkowski won his 4th Super Bowl championship earlier this year and held the WWE 24/7 Championship from March 26, 2020 (WrestleMania 36) till June 1, 2020.

• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WCW Veteran Reese (Real name: Ron Reis) celebrates his 51st birthday today.

Ron’s World Championship Wrestling debut at the end of the Halloween Havoc 1995 PPV was pretty memorable, as he came out in a mummy costume as “The Yeti”, helping The Giant (now known as The Big Show) to attack Hulk Hogan.

He also portrayed other characters in WCW, such as “The Super Giant Ninja” and “Big Ron Studd”, before joining Raven’s stable “Raven’s Flock” as Reese in 1998.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY REESE!
