• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (April 20, 1999) – WWF Legend Passed Away

On this day in 1999, we lost Old School WWF Legend “Ravishing” Rick Rude (Real name: Richard Rood) at the age of 40 due to an accidental overdose.

Rude wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1987 until 1990, and then went to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1991.

His great career was cut short due to an injury that happened during a match against Sting in 1994, but even after retiring from active professional wrestling, Rude still appeared as a manager on WWF Television, where he managed D-Generation X, and later on WCW TV where he became a non-wrestling member of the nWo New World Order.

Still to this day, Rick Rude’s physique is unmatched in the wrestling business, so his body is considered one of the best in professional wrestling history.

In 2017, he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his old WWF/WCW rival Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat.

† REST IN PEACE RICK RUDE

3-Time WWE Tag Team Champions, The Revival, were released from the WWE a couple of weeks ago. Since then, speculation rose that Dax Harwood (Scott Dawson) and Cash Wheeler (Dash Wilder) would sign with AEW.

It looks like the speculation might turn out to be true, as Cash Wheeler dropped a big hint about his future on Twitter.

AEW’s official Twitter account gave a shout out to a little kid named “Cash”, who’s a big fan of Cody Rhodes.

Cash Wheeler found a great opportunity to spark some rumors about himself, as he replied to the tweet with: “Hey, Cody”:

He later retweeted NWA’s tweet about the Crockett Cup, making his intentions clear that he and his partner are open to working out a deal with them as well.

Not only Cash, but his partner Dax Harwood may also be AEW or NWA bound.
