• “He Should Always Be In The Main Event” – WWF Legend Says Chris Jericho Is Not Past His Prime
During a recent episode of his weekly podcast, WWF Attitude Era Legend Kurt Angle spoke about Chris Jericho leaving WWE in 2018 and eventually joining Tony Khan’s new promotion All Elite Wrestling in 2019.
Here’s what the 2017 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“I thought Chris Jericho was gonna be a WWE lifer. I never thought he’d ever leave. He left before and I think he went to Japan, but never really signed with another company, at least not since he was in WCW. He was in WWE for the longest time and I never thought he’d leave and go to another company.
Regardless, Chris Jericho is a huge star. He should always be in the main event, and he should be winning a lot of matches.
It’s not like he’s past his prime. He’s still going as well as he ever has, and as long as he’s doing that you need to continue to push him.”
After runs with ECW (1996) and WCW (1996-1999), Chris Jericho wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation (later WWE) from 1999 to 2005 and again from 2007 until 2010 and from 2011 till 2018.
In late 2001, he became the first ever Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion, thus unifying the by far most prestigious World Titles on the planet, the WWF Championship and the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.

• Old School WWF Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 53rd birthday of Old School WWF Veteran “Fake Razor Ramon” Rick Bognar.
Rick Bognar played the infamous character of FAKE Razor Ramon, after the real Razor Ramon, Scott Hall had left and went to WCW.
Bognar worked that gimmick from September 1996 till early 1997, before being let go by the World Wrestling Federation and going back to Japan, where he had already made a name for himself previously as ‘Big Titan’.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
