• “I still wish he was undefeated” – WWE Hall Of Famer On The Undertaker
During a recent edition of Grilling JR podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross discussed No Way Out 2006, where Kurt Angle defeated The Undertaker to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.
JR said he’s glad this was done at No Way Out, and not at WrestleMania 22, as he doesn’t think The Streak should’ve ever been broken.
Here’s what JR said about Taker’s loss to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30:
“I was not for it when Undertaker’s streak was ended by Lesnar. Not a knock on Brock, just simply I thought that was such a unique calling card. It was so unique and special, all pointing to the biggest event of the year.
So Undertaker’s undefeated streak was always in place, it was always something for somebody to shoot for. It became an issue.”
JR didn’t want The Streak to be broken in 2006 (as there were talks of Kurt Angle beating The Undertaker at WrestleMania 22), and thinks Undertaker should’ve retired undefeated at WrestleMania:
“No, I would not have been for beating the streak at that point in time. Here we’re talking in 2021, the month of February, I’m thinking I still wish he was undefeated.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 17, 2017) – Old School WWF Valet Passed Away
On this day in 2017, we lost Old School WWF Attitude Era Diva Nicole Bass at the age of 52 after a stroke.
Nicole Bass was a professional bodybuilder from 1985 till 1997, before she got into professional wrestling and joined Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling in 1998.
At WWF WrestleMania XV in 1999, she made her World Wrestling Federation debut as the female bodyguard of Women’s Champion Sable.
During Nicole’s final days with the promotion, she was in a team with fellow WWF Diva Ivory, before leaving the promotion for good.
She left and filed a lawsuit against the WWF, claiming that she was sexually harassed by “The Brooklyn Brawler” Steve Lombardi. The case was dismissed in 2003.
Bass then continued to wrestle on the independent scene, including matches for Xtreme Pro Wrestling (XPW), NWA Jersey and World Xtreme Wrestling.
† REST IN PEACE NICOLE BASS
