• Former AEW Wrestler Debuts In IMPACT Wrestling
Earlier this year, Stu Grayson of the Dark Order stable left AEW.
Now, another member of Dark Order is done with All Elite Wrestling – Alan “5” Angels.
Alan made his debut in the company in 2020 and his first match was against Kenny Omega.
This match drew a lot of criticism online, as Omega gave Angels a lot of offense in this match and fans thought AEW’s top wrestler shouldn’t be getting beat up this much by an unknown wrestler.
You can watch this match below:
His last match in the company took place on AEW Dark taping, against Daniel Garcia.
Below is what he tweeted after leaving AEW:
“Excited for what’s next.”
Angels made his IMPACT Wrestling debut at Saturday night’s TV tapings. He challenged X-Division Champion “Speedball” Mike Bailey after making his debut.

• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend Hillbilly Jim (Real name: James Morris) celebrates his 70th birthday today.
Hillbilly Jim first joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1984 as a (kayfabe) Fan, who (in storyline) got trained by WWF World Champion Hulk Hogan.
He retired from active professional wrestling in 1990, but later returned in 1992 to co-host WWF Prime Time Wrestling and again in early 1996 to become the manager of The Godwinns.
Hillbilly Jim came out of retirement to enter the Gimmick Battle Royal at WrestleMania X-Seven, but was eliminated by the eventual winner The Iron Sheik.
In 2018, Jim was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HILLBILLY JIM!
