• John Cena vs. Former IC Champion Was Pitched For WrestleMania 39

Xero News previously reported that WWE was considering the following 3 opponents for John Cena at WrestleMania 39:

– Logan Paul

– LA Knight

– Austin Theory

In an update, Wrestlingnewsco is now reporting that Cena vs. Logan has been booked by WWE for WrestleMania Hollywood.

According to Fightful Select, there’s one more name that was considered to be booked as Cena’s opponent at the biggest show of 2023 – former Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes.

However, the pitch for Cena vs. Rhodes was made when Vince McMahon was still in-charge.

Since Vince’s retirement, there have been no discussions about The American Nightmare challenging the 16-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

It should be noted that Cena vs. Rhodes has happened before, during Cody’s 1st WWE run. However, the difference is that Cena is now considered a Legend and Cody is being pushed as a main event superstar.

• Old School ECW Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 60th birthday of Legendary Hardcore Wrestler & real life Bounty Hunter “The Original Gangsta” New Jack (Real name: Jerome Young).

New Jack originally made a name for himself in Jim Cornette’s SMW Smoky Mountain Wrestling territory, where he formed ‘The Gangstas’ with his Tag Team partner Mustafa Saed, but soon jumped ship to Paul Heyman’s ECW Extreme Championship Wrestling, where he became a house hold name in Hardcore Wrestling and somewhat of an innovator when it comes to jumping of balconies during pro wrestling matches.

After ECW closed its doors in January 2001, New Jack continued to wrestle on the indies (with a few short stints in TNA in between) until he officially retired a few years ago. He has since came out of retirement quite a few times, to reunite The Gangstas with his old partner Mustafa.

Jerome Young passed away from a heart attack in 2021.
