• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 1, 2015) – Old School Tag Team Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2015, we lost Old School Tag Team Veteran Tommy Rogers (Real name: Thomas Couch) at the age of 54.
For most of Tommy Rogers’ professional Wrestling career, he teamed up with Bobby Fulton as “The Fantastics”.
They were a famous Tag Team during the 80s & 90s and wrestled for various territories such as World Class Championship Wrestling, Jim Crockett Promotions & Mid-South Wrestling (UWF) and many more.
Later on during the Monday Night Wars, Rogers also had a few stints as a singles wrestler in the WWF, WCW and ECW, but was mainly used as an enhancement talent.
† REST IN PEACE TOMMY ROGERS!

• Reason Behind WWE Changing Match Plan On RAW
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, a Fatal 4 way match between Braun Strowman, Bobby Lashley, The Miz and Baron Corbin took place to determine who’ll face Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship at WWE Super ShowDown 2019.
According to the Wrestling Observer, the original plan for this match was for it to be an elimination match, but that plan was nixed as WWE officials didn’t want Strowman to get pinned (as Corbin was set to be the winner).
