• Old School Legend Manages Former TNA Star Who Won The NWA World Title
In a surprise victory at the recent ‘CZW Cage of Death 19′ indy event, Nick Aldis (TNA’s Magnus) defeated NWA World Heavyweight Champion Tim Storm to win the oldest surviving wrestling championship in the world, that dates back to to George Hackenschmidt’s 1905 title win.
On Aldis’ side, he had Old School Territory Wrestling Legend “The Universal Heartthrob” Austin Idol, who is now officially his new manager.
It has to be noted that the NWA and its World Title has recently become relevant again, after former TNA president Billy Corgan took over the company.
Let’s hope that Austin Idol won’t be the last Old School Superstar he’s bringing back.

• Kane Says Royal Rumble 2018 Might Be The Final Time He’s Involved In The Main Event Scene, On The Undertaker Making Rare Appearances
During a recent interview with New York Post, former WWF Champion Kane talked about being involved in the Universal Championship match at Royal Rumble 2018, The Undertaker making rare appearances & more.
Below are the highlights:
On being involved in the main event scene once again:
“I have to take advantage of everyone that comes along. This might be the last one. I don’t know. I certainly think the match at Royal Rumble is going to be special for me.
I’ve been in WWE for 22 years and that’s a long time and I still think I perform at a high level. But nevertheless, it’s a long time and I know I don’t have many opportunities like this left.”
On Braun Strowman and current WWE wrestlers:
“The company has done a tremendous job with him, you know positioning him where he needs to be and he gets it and that can be a rarity often… I think he has a really bright future ahead of him. I think he is going to be a guy that going forth for many years is going to be at top or near the top of WWE.
If you look at our roster, it seems like 20 years ago we had a lot of big guys, not as big as him, but a lot of big guys. Nowadays not so much, I think our guys are better athletes now but they are not as big.”
On The Undertaker only making rare appearances nowadays:
“Undertaker, for almost as long as many of us have been watching WWE, he’s been part of it. So, it’s one of those things like, man almost a piece is missing now to some extent.”
