• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Legend The Great Muta (Real name: Keiji Mutoh) celebrates his 57th birthday today.
The NJPW Wrestler came to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1989 and joined Gary Hart’s J-Tex Corporation faction, that feuded with Ric Flair and Sting.
Muta wrestled as a part-timer for WCW until September 2000, but only in between his NJPW dates in Japan.
He has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which to be fair is only a question of “when”, not “if”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREAT MUTA!
• Jerry Lawler Explains Why Next Week’s RAW Will Be The Biggest Deal Ever
During a recent episode of Jerry Lawler’s podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler had the following to say about the Lana-Lashley-Rusev storyline:
“I can’t do a spoiler but something happens with Lana, Lashley and Rusev on that show. There’s gonna be a big deal, and it’s going to make the show after Christmas the biggest deal ever.
You just gotta watch what happens on the Christmas show. It’s going to set up the show after Christmas. It is going to be really awesome.
Everybody’s not going to like everything you know. We always talked about this, how the fact is in wrestling people would get tired of just two guys or two women going out there and having a wrestling match [without a storyline].
If you put together nineteen wrestling matches on one night for fans to watch; if there’s not something about those matches to get the fans personally invested…what we call a personal issue.
So if there’s not some sort of personal issue behind these matches nobody cares. If you really watch a match everybody does the same stuff you know. There’s the dives off the top rope. There’s the dive over the top rope…it’s all the same stuff every single match.”
For those who don’t know, next week’s RAW will feature Lana and Bobby Lashley getting married.
