• Jim Ross Recalls Chris Benoit Kicking Current WWE Wrestler Out Of The Locker Room

While speaking to Conrad Thompson on Grilling JR, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross recalled Chris Benoit getting frustrated over The Miz dropping food particles on someone’s bag in the locker room while eating a piece of chicken there.

Below is what happened, according to Ross.

“Chris Benoit policed his territory. Benoit represented the business as best he knew at the time, but he didn’t take it to the next step and put the crossface on The Miz or beat the sh*t out of him.

If he beat the sh*t out of him, none of the talents would’ve said anything, but nobody deserves to be physically assaulted at the workplace. The verbal thrashing? Have at it. Exile? Have at it. Physicality? Ain’t going to happen.”

• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Veteran “Golden Boy” Dan Spivey celebrates his 68th birthday today.

After touring the territories during the early 80s, Spivey joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1985, where he replaced Barry Windham as Mike Rotunda’s Tag Team Partner in The U.S. Express, later dubbed The American Express.

In 1989, he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where he teamed with Sid Vicious as ‘The Skyscrapers’, a Team that was managed by Teddy Long. When Vicious was injured, “Mean” Mark Callous (now known as The Undertaker) became the second Skyscraper next to Spivey.

In his last major pro-wrestling run, Spivey returned to the WWF in 1995, where Vince McMahon gave him the gimmick of “Waylon Mercy”, a character based on Robert DeNiro’s role in the 1991 movie “Cape Fear”.
