• Former US Champion Continues To Tease Going After The NXT Championship

The following report came out recently about WWE NXT:

“NXT is going to allow talent to work select indies going forward, which is a pretty big deal.”

While some sources have since disputed this report, it led to Matt Cardona (fka Zack Ryder in WWE) tweeting the following:

“I challenge Bron Breakker…

Internet Title vs. NXT Title”

Cardona is still teasing going after WWE’s developmental brand’s top title by tweeting the following after seeing a graphic of Breakker with the NXT Title:

“I’d look good with that strap.”

As we reported yesterday, Cardona is expected to return to WWE soon. His real-life wife, Chelsea Green, returned to WWE recently as well.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 16, 2017) – WWF Legend Passed Away

On this day in 2017, we lost Old School WWF Legend George “The Animal” Steele (Real name: William James Myers) at the age of 79 due to kidney failure.

George Steele wrestled for the World Wide Wrestling Federation / World Wrestling Federation during the 60s, 70s and 80s before he semi-retired in 1988 because he was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.

The Animal did return for a few appearances in 1997, 1998 & 2010, as well as wrestling Jeff Jarrett on WCW Monday Nitro in early 2000.

He became a WWF/E Hall of Famer when he was inducted into the World Wrestling Federation Hall of Fame (now known as “WWE Hall of Fame”) in 1995 by Doink “The Clown”.
