• Mark Henry Lied To WWE To Get Daniel Bryan Hired
During a recent appearance on BT Sports’ The Run-In, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry revealed that he lied to WWE Officials to get Daniel Bryan hired.
Here’s what Henry said:
“I had to lie to everybody’s face to get Daniel Bryan looked at.
They wanted guys who were big and huge. And I said ‘this guy is like 6’1, 200 lbs. He can get it done.’
Then he got there and they were like, ‘that guy’s not 6’1!’ And I said that he must’ve had lifts in his shoes.
But I knew he was really good. Sometimes when you’re really good it don’t matter what your size is. And he was one of those guys that I just knew. I was like, ‘man this guy is a really, really excellent wrestler, excellent psychologist.’
He was already wrestling. They didn’t have to show him how to do anything, they didn’t have to wait a long time. And he was able to get it done.”
Bryan will main event Night 2 of WrestleMania 37 this Sunday night, when he faces Roman Reigns and Edge in a Triple Threat match for the Universal Championship. This will be Bryan’s second WrestleMania main event.

• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 87th birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran Les Thornton.
After wrestling in his home country England, UK during the 60s, Thornton came to the United States and wrestled for several NWA territories during the 70s and 80s such as Georgia Championship Wrestling, Championship Wrestling from Florida & Jim Crockett Promotions, before finally joining the World Wrestling Federation in 1984 in the process of Vince McMahon buying Georgia Championship Wrestling and signing a few of their regulars.
Despite being a star and a well respected Veteran in several territories, he only made it to lower mid-card / undercard status in the WWF and left the promotion in 1986.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
April 9, 1934 – February 1, 2019
