• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday

Legendary Old School Wrestling Commentator “Good Ol’ J.R.” Jim Ross (Real name: James William Ross) turns 66 today.

Ross started to make a name for himself as an announcer and on commentary in Bill Watts’ UWF Mid-South Wrestling Territory and came to Jim Crockett Promotions when they bought the promotion in 1987.

In 1993, Vince hired J.R. to a World Wrestling Federation contract and Ross made his TV debut at the ‘WWF WrestleMania 9’ PPV.

Him and Jerry “The King” Lawler are considered the voices of the legendary Attitude Era, which is why they got inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY J.R.!

• Top WWE Star No Longer Expected To Win The Royal Rumble 2018 Match

As we noted before, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena was the favorite to win the Men’s Royal Rumble 2018 match.

However, that’s not the case anymore as Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer recently that Cena is in a “much bigger match than Styles” (referring to the theory that if Cena won the Royal Rumble then he would’ve faced the WWE Champion AJ Styles at WrestleMania 34).

Meltzer said that Cena’s WrestleMania 34 opponent is expected to be one of the following big names:

– The Undertaker

– Goldberg

– Batista

Cena’s WrestleMania 34 angle might begin on the 25th anniversary episode of Raw on January 22, 2018.

We’ll keep you updated regarding the favorite to win the Men’s Royal Rumble 2018 match.
