• Old School WWF Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 56th birthday of Old School WWF Veteran Crush (Real name: Brian Adams).

Crush became the 3rd member of Demolition in 1990, but stayed with the World Wrestling Federation after the team’s demise in 1991, using several gimmicks until he left in late 1997.

In early 1998, he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where he immediately joined the famous New World Order (nWo) faction.

During his final year in WCW, as well as during his very brief WWF return, Brian Adams was put in a Tag Team with Bryan Clark (fka Adam Bomb), called KroniK.

• Former World Champion’s Status In WWE Is Now Similar To That Of The Rock

On Night 2 of WrestleMania 36, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt defeated 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena in a bizarre Firefly Fun House match.

Cena, who hinted at retirement when he returned on SmackDown in February, teased his retirement from in-ring competition in WWE once again when he posted the following on Twitter:

“All things end. When it’s time to leave, leave them guessing.”

However, that isn’t the case.

Tom Colohue reported that Cena’s status in WWE is similar to that of The Rock now:

“We should be reading that into it because that’s what he wants us to read into it but this is not John Cena’s technical retirement match.

John Cena will only ever be as retired from the WWE as The Rock is retired from the WWE.

At any time, he may get a phone call saying, ‘Can you come back and put this person over?’, and he’ll absolutely do that.

He lobbied to get involved at WrestleMania, he wasn’t down for a match even as early as January, they didn’t have anything planned for him but he wanted to come in and put someone over and they ended up working this out.

Cena at this point is not technically retired but this is just another example of him trying to put over someone a little bit more.”
