• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Attitude Era Veteran Gangrel (Real name: David Heath) celebrates his 50th birthday today.
After doing jobs for all the two big promotions of the 90s (WWF/WCW) under his real name, he joined the World Wrestling Federation full-time in the summer of 1998 and was given the name Gangrel.
Gangrel, who portrayed a vampire gimmick, became famous as the leader of the faction ‘The Brood’ with Edge & Christian … and later on as the leader of ‘The New Brood’ featuring The Hardy Boyz.
He returned briefly in 2004 to wrestle The Undertaker, and again in 2007 to participate in the 15-man battle royal on the 15th Anniversary WWE Raw special.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GANGREL!
