• Old School WWF Diva Would Have Celebrated Her Birthday

Today would have been the 59th birthday of legendary Old School WWF Diva Miss Elizabeth (Real name: Elizabeth Hulette).

From 1984 until 1992, she was married to Old School WWF Legend “The Macho Man” Randy Savage.

Miss Elizabeth also became his on-screen valet in 1985 until she left the World Wrestling Federation in 1992.

Liz would again join Randy Savage, who at that point was already her divorced ex-husband, as his valet, when she started working for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1996.

Later in her 1996-2000 WCW run, she became the valet of “The Total Package” Lex Luger, who eventually became her real life boyfriend until she passed away from an alcohol & drug overdose in 2003.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE

November 19, 1960 – May 1, 2003

• Jordan Myles Explains Why He Believes WWE Is Racist

During a recent Q&A session, NXT wrestler Jordan Myles answered some questions from fans. Below are the highlights:

On why he thinks WWE is racist:

“The WWE was racist to me because of the T-shirt that they produced for me. I was lied to, which really hurt my feelings the most. On top of that, if that was their image of me, what does that say about, you know, the kids, the African-American kids that watch it. Or just people in general that watch it, that felt some kind of way about that shirt, not just me. I think that that shirt was disrespectful, it was disgraceful.

And on top of that, it was a slap in the face. Not only to myself, but all the viewers that look just like me. I think that that shirt was completely racist, and if you go back and you do the history, I mean yeah they’ve given titles and championships to African-Americans. But that doesn’t take away the fact that they have done things that were very insensitive to the African-American community. And I think a lot of people need to really look at that.”

On his mental health:

“The thing about the mental health, I do suffer with anxiety and I do suffer with depression and I can have bad mood swings sometimes, but that doesn’t mean when I speak out it doesn’t have any meaning behind it.

The t-shirt triggered things from my past and it all came up at once, and a lot of anger from my past came up with it, as well. That caused me to come at people the way that I did. Again, I’m not gonna apologize for what I said. What I said, I meant it.”

On if he’s done with WWE:

“Legally, no. Mentally, yes.”
