• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend “Mr.” Bob Backlund celebrates his 69th birthday today.
He held the World Wrestling Federation World Heavyweight Championship from February 1978 until he lost it to The Iron Sheik in December 1983.
In 1979 Inoki won the belt in Japan for a week, but this reign is not recognized by the now renamed WWE, which still lists Backlund’s title reign as being uninterrupted.
In 1994 Backlund reinvented himself when he turned heel and started to portray some sort of maniac character.
He became the WWF World Heavyweight Champion again, when he defeated Bret “The Hitman” Hart in a submission match at the Survivor Series 1994 PPV.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB BACKLUND!

• Heel Turn Coming Soon On RAW?
According to the Wrestling Observer, Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman is being advertised for post-SummerSlam 2018 WWE Live Events.
Wrestling Observer speculated that one of these two men might be turning heel to move forward with this feud.
While Reigns turning heel sounds impossible at the moment, Strowman could be the one who turns heel.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
