• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF/WCW Veteran Scott Putski (Real name: James Bednarski) celebrates his 53rd birthday today.
He’s the son of WWF Legend & WWF/WWE Hall of Famer “Polish Power” Ivan Putski (Józef Bednarski).
It felt a bit odd when this 260 lbs Heavyweight Wrestler was used in the newly founded WWF Light-Heavyweight Division (basically the counterpart to WCW’s Cruiserweight Division) in 1997.
Scott then joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1998, but left the promotion a year later in 1999.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCOTT PUTSKI!
