• Old School ECW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School ECW Veteran Super Crazy (Real name: Francisco Rueda) celebrates his 46th birthday today.

After a career in Mexico and a short stint as ‘Super Loco’ on the World Wrestling Federation’s short-lived lucha libre themed TV-Show ‘Super Astros’, he joined Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling in 1998 and stayed with the promotion till the bitter end in January 2001.

Years later, Vince McMahon brought him back to the (now renamed) WWE, where Super Crazy joined forces with Psicosis & Juventud Guerrera to create the faction ‘The Mexicools’.

Since his WWE release in 2008, he’s wrestling on the independent scene all over the world.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUPER CRAZY!

• Kofi Kingston Reveals Interesting Reason Why He Didn’t Becoming King Of The Ring, WWE Thought Big E Was Boring

During the debut edition of The New Day: Feel The Power podcast, former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and Big E revealed some interesting stories.

Below are the highlights:

On if Kofi Kingston was ever in danger of losing his last name (similar to how Big E lost ‘Langston’):

“No, I have not, but I was in danger of becoming the King Of The Ring at one point which would have been King Kofi Kingston which again would not have been a good thing because of the acronym (KKK), take it from there, you know?”

On Big E saying WWE officials thought he was boring:

“It’s wild to me how all the pieces came together separately [to form The New Day] because at the time it was from producers that the office thought that I was boring.

That’s something that they wanted me to try — at one point one of the producers told me, ‘Hey, can you juggle?’ They legit wanted me to juggle I suppose have a match and bust out some juggling.”
