• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 60th birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend “Dr. Death” Steve Williams.

During his career, Williams wrestled for some of the biggest and most famous wrestling companies ever, such as the World Wrestling Federation (1998-1999), World Championship Wrestling (1988-1990, 1992, 1999) , Extreme Championship Wrestling (1996, 1997), UWF/Mid-South Wrestling (1982-1987) and All Japan Pro Wrestling.

In 1995, Jim Ross pushed hard for McMahon to bring Dr. Death to the World Wrestling Federation, with J.R. intending to get a legitimate tough guy who could shut up The Kliq and be immune to their bullsh*t and backstage politics.

Williams received an offer and was already booked to win the 1995 King of the Ring tournament and get the main event push that came with it, but unfortunately he was still contractually obligated to work several upcoming AJPW shows, so it was impossible for him to accept the WWF’s offer.

He was the favorite to win the infamous Brawl For All tournament in 1998/1999, but competed with an injury, which caused him to lose to Bart Gunn, who ended up winning the entire thing.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE

• Mark Henry Reacts To Lio Rush Calling Him Out

Former WWE wrestler Lio Rush has been addressing his time in WWE on Twitter. Every day, he makes it to the news with a new story.

Recently, he called out WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry for the comments made about him on Busted Open Radio.

There were rumors that Rush wasn’t satisfied with his pay, and stayed at home for a while due to some disagreements.

Rush is referring to the time when Henry said he was upset because he pulled him aside last year to find out what was going on with him after hearing “stuff in the locker room”. Henry claimed that Rush told him “nothing was wrong“. On his podcast, Henry said, “That’s a blatant lie to my face! I was trying to help him” because he (Henry) knows the system more than most people.

Below is what Rush posted:

Henry then replied the following to Rush:
