• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (May 1, 2003) – The First Lady Of Wrestling Passed Away
On this day in 2003, we lost Old School World Wrestling Federation Legend Miss Elizabeth (Real name: Elizabeth Hulette) at the young age of 42.
Liz became famous during her WWF run from 1985 to 1992, where she managed her then husband “The Macho Man” Randy Savage.
She died from mixing pain killers & cocaine with alcohol, and while her then boyfriend Luger was the worst possible partner & role model to her, he did in fact NOT – as falsely claimed all over the internet – kill her. It was her choice to follow him and mix those substances.
† REST IN PEACE MISS ELIZABETH!
• Lio Rush Reacts To Reports Of Getting Heat For Breaking Locker Room Etiquette
As we all know by now, Lio Rush has backstage heat in WWE and things aren’t looking good for his future on the WWE main roster.
According to PWInsider, Rush broke backstage etiquette at WWE’s European Tour in November 2018 to gain heat among his fellow WWE wrestlers:
“Rush has been a polarizing figure backstage for some time among other wrestlers, dating back to the November 2018 European tour, where as the junior member of the tour, he blew off what has long been considered standard backstage etiquette for the junior member of the roster on overseas tours, including being at the gorilla position after matches to provide water to talents as they returned from the ring as well as carrying coolers and drinks into the hotels where the roster was staying in order to set up a common area where everyone could socialize privately together.
Things calmed down in recent months, but there have been additional issues, including Rush allegedly bringing friends and relatives backstage without proper credentials and other moments where he has blown off counsel of senior RAW roster members.
Rush has completely disappeared from RAW with zero explanation of the end of his on-screen relationship with Bobby Lashley.”
A fan asked him regarding this report and below is what Rush replied on Twitter:
I believe we are all able to carry our own gear and provisions. I treat others as equals and as a young black male have often had to fight for my own equality. https://t.co/lwdySHrGl6
