• Old School WCW Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 65th birthday of Old School WCW Veteran Al Green (Real name: Alfred Dobalo).

In 1990 & 1991, he wrestled as “Blade”, teaming with Steel (Kevin Nash) as ‘The Master Blasters’, before in 1992 Green changed his name to “Rage”, one half of ‘The Wrecking Crew’.

After touring Japan & Europe during the mid-90s, he returned to World Championship Wrestling in the summer of 1998 and wrestled for them until he was released in March 2000, but was used for the most part as a ‘Jobber To The Stars’.
