• Ruthless Aggression Era Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Ruthless Aggression Era Veteran Nathan Jones celebrates his 50th birthday today.
After serving 7 years in a maximum-security prison and later competing in ‘World’s Strongest Man’ contests, as well as doing an MMA fight for UFC’s then rival promotion Pride F.C., Nathan Jones became a professional Wrestler in 2001, joining World Wrestling Entertainment in late 2002.
At WrestleMania XIX, he teamed with the legendary Undertaker in a Tag Team match against Big Show & A-Train, before turning heel later that year, when he became a Paul Heyman guy.
Nathan hated the WWE’s travel schedule, so he quit a few weeks before the 2004 Royal Rumble, and went on to become an Hollywood actor, playing in movies such as Troy, The Condemned & Mad Max Fury Road.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATHAN JONES!
