• Former WWF Manager Calls The Fiend “Garbage”
In 2019, Bray Wyatt (son of WWF Veteran ‘IRS’ Irwin R. Schyster) reinvented himself by debuting ‘The Fiend’, which turned out to be pretty successful so far.
Old School WWF/WCW Manager Jim Cornette constantly bashes this gimmick on his weekly ‘Drive Thru’ podcast though, even calling it “unsalvageable garbage and an embarrassment to the wrestling business”.
Here’s Cornette’s latest rant about The Fiend:
“This whole thing is just, probably the worst, and over the last year and a half or two years, imagine how much that takes in.
As probably 50% of it has involved The Fiend. Every time we see him it’s garbage.
It’s goofy f**king puppets appearing out of nowhere. It’s supernatural bullsh*t, black sludge vomit, being killed in front of us and then just getting up or whatever.
No, it’s totally unsalvageable. That’s not wrestling anymore.
So I don’t know what the f**king attraction is that anybody would be entertained by this horsesh*t.
But no, I wouldn’t book The Fiend except possibly a long stay at the mental institution.
I mean the whole thing, the Firefly vignettes, the whole thing is an embarrassment to the business.”

• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Attitude Era Legend “The People’s Champion” The Rock (Real name: Dwayne Johnson) turns 49 today.
The Rock had his World Wrestling Federation debut at the Survivor Series 1996 PPV (at that time as “Rocky Maivia”) and wrestled for them full-time until 2002, but returned for storylines & matches in 2003, 2004, 2011, 2012 & 2013.
Nowadays, Dwayne Johnson is by far the #1 actor in Hollywood and almost everyone on the planet knows who he is.
According to rumors, The Rock considers running for President at some point in the future, and with him being one of the most charismatic & lovable people on the planet, it’s safe to say that he would have more than just a big chance of winning whatever election he competes in.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROCK!
