• Macaulay Culkin Regrets Not Becoming A WWE Writer
During an interview with former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. on ‘Wrestling with Freddie’ podcast, Hollywood Actor Macaulay Culkin recalled his interaction with WWE Officials.
Below are the highlights:
On WWE consulting him about their programming:
“I came up with some great Bray Wyatt story angles all alone in my room in Paris, man. They called me up for consultation kind of stuff, you know.
‘What do you think will make the brand better?’ I think they might have done one or two things and I’m like ‘hey!’ I’m not saying I came up with it or nothing, but at the same time I was like ‘oh, there you go!’
I’m just like ‘hey, why don’t we make the show slightly different, because, just one’s blue and one’s red’. God bless, Kevin Dunn, but you know ‘no, no, no, this is our product.’
He’s really good at what he does, far be it for me to be criticizing anything that he’s saying, I’m just saying ‘well, can we do something that’s just visually different?’ things like that.”
On not joining WWE’s writing team:
“There were times when I wanted to. Like, kind of just, you know, find six months of my life at the very least to kind of go in there and stuff.
You know, I will say I do kind of regret not doing that. Now that I’m a Dad and stuff like that, I ain’t got time. Man, I’ve barely got time to pee at this point. Do you know what I mean?
I never just got round to it, there was always something. Next thing I know I’m on the road being in a pizza band or something!”

• Old School WCW Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 54th birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran Silver King (Real name: César Cuauhtémoc González Barrón).
If you were watching Ted Turner’s WCW TV during the famous Monday Night Wars, you will most likely remember him as one of the luchadores that were part of the Cruiserweight Division.
Silver King’s run in WCW lasted from 1997 till 2000, before he returned to his home country Mexico.
He died from a heart attack while wrestling a match in the UK in 2019 and was later posthumously inducted into the AAA Hall of Fame.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
January 9, 1968 – May 11, 2019
