• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WCW Veteran Reese (Real name: Ron Reis) celebrates his 49th birthday today.

Ron’s World Championship Wrestling debut at the end of the Halloween Havoc 1995 PPV was pretty memorable, as he came out in a mummy costume as “The Yeti”, helping The Giant (now known as The Big Show) to attack Hulk Hogan.

He also portrayed other characters in WCW, such as “The Super Giant Ninja” and “Big Ron Studd”, before joining Raven’s stable “Raven’s Flock” as Reese in 1998.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY REESE!

• Lio Rush Reacts To Report Of Him Having Major Backstage Heat In WWE

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Lio Rush has major backstage heat in WWE because his confidence has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

Below is what Meltzer had to say about Rush:

“Rush is a very confident man. That can rub people the wrong way, even though you have to have that to be a star in this business. The story goes that he’s made it very clear to many people that he thinks he should be a top guy on the brand, and hasn’t been shy about saying it.”

This led to Rush issuing the following statement on Twitter:

“The fact of the matter is no matter what you do in life, no matter what route you take, you’ll always have people out there that’ll try to tear you down. Tell you that you can’t be or do something. Try to stomp on your name and halt your success. The fact of the matter is that I love what I do and have been in love with the dreams of being in the current position that I’m in now since I was 5 years old.

The fact of the matter is that I am a young, hungry, and humble husband and father of two boys who believes in himself more than anybody will ever believe in me. The fact of the matter is that I am a passionate African American male in America who takes my passion seriously and will do whatever it takes to change me and my family’s situation.

The fact of the matter is that I’ve overcome neglect, suicide, anxiety, depression, and everything else at a very young age that a human of my current age should never have to go through. The fact of the matter is that you can beat these demons, achieve what you’ve sought out to achieve.

The fact of the matter is that I do what I do for the people like me. For the people who struggle, for the people who fight, for the kids who dream and for the men and women with hope. The fact of the matter is that you don’t always know the facts and that’s ok.”
