• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 27, 2010) – Old School WWF Diva Passed Away
On this day in 2010, we lost Old School WWF Veteran Diva Luna Vachon (Real name: Gertrude Vachon) at the age of 48 due to a drug overdose.
Luna Vachon wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation during the New Generation Era in 1993 & 1994, and then again during the Attitude Era from late 1997 till early 2000.
Luna always worked as a valet for “The Beast from the East” Bam Bam Bigelow, The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust and The Oddities.
In 2019, she was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
† REST IN PEACE LUNA VACHON

• It Looks Like Former WWE Wrestler Is Back Full-Time
As seen on last night’s NXT, Wade Barrett appeared on WWE TV for the first time in 4 years. He called the action with Vic Joseph from the commentary desk.

WWE has now added Barrett’s bio back to their website.
Below is what it says:
“Trained in bare-knuckle brawling on the mean streets of Preston, England, Wade Barrett brought strength, arrogance and cunning to the ring in equal measure. He was imbued with confidence and eloquence, character traits that propelled the cocky young Brit to the top ranks in WWE.
After coming to WWE prominence as the winner of WWE NXT season one, Barrett proved he was not content merely to share the spotlight with his fellow Superstars. He wanted total control, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Whether as the firebrand leader of not one, but two insurgent squads, or a lone fighter intent on delivering “Bad News” in the most painful form imaginable, Barrett proved himself to be one of the tougher specimens to ever set foot in a ring.
A ring, it must be mentioned, of which he eventually became King, when he defeated Neville in 2015 to become WWE’s first King of the Ring in four years. Months later, he joined with fellow international Superstars Rusev, Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio to form The League of Nations. With the power of the crown at his side and subjects falling at his feet, Barrett’s glorious crusade toward glory was less manifest destiny than divine right itself.
Then, after being away from WWE for several years, Barrett reemerged as a color analyst on the Aug. 26, 2020 edition of NXT! As someone who clearly loves the sound of his own voice, Barrett should fit right in on the black-and-gold brand.”
On last night’s NXT, Barrett noted that he’s also going to appear on next week’s NXT Super Tuesday episode.
With that being said and from the last line in Barrett’s WWE.com bio, it looks like Barrett is back full-time.
