• Former WWE Champion Says Stone Cold & The Rock Were His Least Favorite Wrestlers Growing Up

During a recent interview with 6ABC, AEW wrestler Bryan Danielson (fka Daniel Bryan in WWE) revealed that Stone Cold Steve Austin & The Rock were his least favorite wrestlers back in the day.

Yes, you read that correctly, we couldn’t believe it either, but he seems to actually be serious about it, and looking at the calendar, this would hardly qualify as an April Fools Joke by Danielson either.

Here’s what the former WWE Champion had to say:

“So that’s one of the things that drew me to it because as a fan, when I was in high school, everybody loved The Rock and Steve Austin. They were my least favorite people because all they did was talk. I like the ‘wrestler’ wrestlers.

If you were to do a comparison just watching the shows, you’ll see that there’s a lot more wrestling in the two hours of Dynamite than there is even in a three-hour WWE RAW. Sometimes there’s more wrestling on an AEW Dynamite show than there is in RAW and SmackDown combined.”

Bryan Danielson was originally trained at the Texas Wrestling Academy (TWA) in San Antonio, Texas by WWF Legend Shawn Michaels and had his professional wrestling debut in 1999, before he was a WWF developmental wrestler between 2000 and 2001, while working for the official WWF developmental promotion Memphis Championship Wrestling (MCW).

He is however best remembered for his 2010-2021 WWE run as Daniel Bryan, where he became a multiple-time World Champion, among several other title wins.

• Old School WCW Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 53rd birthday of Old School WCW Veteran “Hail” Emory Hale, who passed away in 2006 at the young age of 36.

Some of you will certainly remember the 6’9″ wrestler from his WCW days with Jimmy Hart as his manager, mostly wrestling on the weekly C-shows like WCW Saturday Night and WCW WorldWide.

Hale stayed with Ted Turner’s promotion from late 1998 till mid-2000 and later wrestled for Jimmy Hart’s very own Xcitement Wrestling Federation (XWF).
