• Old School WWF Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 66th birthday of Old School WWF Veteran Big Bully Busick (Real name: Nick Busick).
The former police officer and former professional powerlifter made a name for himself when he was working for the World Wrestling Federation for a few months in 1991.
Big Bully lived up to his character when he bullied the kids in the audience and also harassed female ring announcer Mike McGuirk.
Busick was originally booked to be in a classic Survivor Series team with Skinner, The Berzerker & Col. Mustafa, but left the WWF shortly before the pay-per-view and was eventually replaced with Hercules.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
June 1, 1954 – May 8, 2018
• Jim Ross Says WWE Isn’t Happy With Vickie Guerrero Because Of Her Recent AEW Appearances
Vickie Guerrero has been frequently seen on AEW programming over the past few weeks. She was a part of Chris Jericho’s Pep Rally on last week’s Dynamite.
While talking to Conrad Thompson on the Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross said that Vickie is falling out of favor in WWE because she appeared on an episode of AEW Dark.
Below is what Good Ol’ JR said:
“How Mickey Mouse is that sh*t? You’re going to take her off for being on a YouTube show? Did she say anything disparaging regarding your brand? Not a damn word. You got to be sh*tting me.
That’s incredulous to me that we are even talking about that because you would think, that can’t be true, Conrad. Vickie would not have said she had been cut off, whatever that means.
What it meant was probably she is just not going to get anymore bookings. She probably hasn’t been under contract for quite some time, but it is just childish.
I’m embarrassed to even think about how that was, after all she had gone through with that company. She delivered the goods for three years. She was a significant character on television as any new talent that WWE had in a long time.”
