• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (March 6, 2007) – Old School WWF Veteran Passed Away

On this day in 2007, we lost Old School WWF Veteran Bad News Brown (Real name: Allen Coage) at the age of 63 due to a heart attack.

Bad News Brown joined the World Wrestling Federation in early 1988 and left shortly before the 1990 Survivor Series PPV, where The Undertaker ended up being his replacement. The rest is history.

His most famous rivalries during his time in the WWF were against “The Macho Man” Randy Savage, Jake “The Snake” Roberts and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.


• Jim Ross Compares New WWE Star’s Rumored Push To Vince McMahon Trying To Rush Brock Lesnar

There are rumors going on that new WWE main roster star Lacey Evans is set to face Asuka for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 35.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross addressed this rumor on The Jim Ross Report and gave his views on this situation.

Below are the highlights:

On rumors of Asuka vs. Lacey Evans at WrestleMania 35:

“Apparently, Lacey Evans is in line for the old proverbial push. You all like to talk about who’s getting their push. I think this. I said this when I met her, Lacey Evans, before the Mae Young Classic #1, she has everything. She has an amazing look. Her background is absolutely unduplicated. She’s a marine drill instructor for real!

She’s extremely athletic, but here’s the thing. She needs more time to learn how to wrestle. I’m not saying, ‘she sucks,’ but for her to be at a level of an Asuka, or a Charlotte, or any one on the top, top echelon, which is where WWE apparently sees her, Lacey, then she’s going to need to work on her game.”

On comparing Lacey Evans’ rumored push to Vince McMahon trying to rush Brock Lesnar:

“I remember the old story where Vince said, ‘we want to bring Brock Lesnar to television.’ And I said, ‘he’s not ready.’ ‘He’ll be alright.’ I said, ‘no, he won’t alright because he can’t protect anybody yet. He’s too damn big and strong to not be fundamentally sound and protecting his opponents.’ It doesn’t take much of a miscue from him before you’re in trouble. And Vince realized it and he agreed, so he waited 4 weeks.

Lesnar was on the fast track, but my thoughts are Lacey Evans has everything it takes to be a star. Great media star, she’s intelligent and articulate. Get her back in the ring and drill, drill, drill. Everybody you bring in there to wrestle her should be better than her and I hope it’s being done.”
