• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday

Old School NWA/WWF/WCW Legend “The Enforcer” Arn Anderson (Real name: Marty Lunde) celebrates his 60th birthday today.

Arn became a huge star in NWA Jim Crockett Promotions, where he was a founding member of one of the greatest factions in professional wrestling history, The Four Horsemen.

When Ted Turner bought the promotion, him and fellow Horseman Tully Blanchard left and joined the World Wrestling Federation, where they were known as The Brain Busters.

Arn returned to the NWA promotion, now renamed World Championship Wrestling, in December 1989 and it wasn’t long before he reformed The Four Horsemen again.

In 2012 he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by former rival “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.


• Former WWE Star Explains Why Kenny Omega Shouldn’t Be #1 On The PWI 500 List

IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega was ranked #1 on the PWI 500 List this year.

Former WWE Superstar Ryback gave his opinion on this list produced by Pro Wrestling Illustrated and said the following:

“Honestly, it’s just a person or a group of people’s opinion and that’s fine. For as bad as people say that I am I was #13 one year I believe, so it means nothing. That is good that they made their list, it is their list.

My opinion, and only my opinion is that they should always have a WWE guy at the top of their list. I say that because of the schedule. A guy like AJ Styles is going out there 4 nights a week, week after week, big time TV matches and pay-per-view matches, which is an entire different ballgame than anything else.

Not to discredit anyone else but they are the most notable professional wrestling company in the world and the schedule, there is no other schedule like, so that has to be factored in, which it probably is to a certain degree, but again, all great names on the list, but if you take a group of 20 people they can have 20 different choices for who is #1, as I told you my reasons why I think it should be WWE guys at the top of the list because of the schedule and the demands.

But again, I don’t know all the factors that go into it, but congratulations to Kenny Omega. I have never met him, but everyone that I know has known him and have nothing but good things to say about him. He has had many good matches, so you can’t argue in that standpoint, but I just think that from the schedule standpoint WWE guys have it a little bit harder.”
