• Mick Foley Reveals Which WrestleMania Match Of His He Can’t Watch
At WrestleMania 20 in 2004, Evolution (Randy Orton, Batista & Ric Flair) defeated The Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection (The Rock & Mick Foley) in a 3-on-2 Handicap Match.
During an episode of his “Foley Is Pod” podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley said he can’t watch this match.
Below is his explanation:
“I can’t watch the match. Ric Flair, he feels like it was a really good match.
He says [it is], and I’m like, ‘Ric, I can’t watch it. I can’t watch.’ He said something, ‘You were great. You were great’.
I lost all my confidence, and I go from being this guy who had been the 3-time WWF Champion, and I just become somebody who, in my mind, doesn’t belong out there.”

• Old School Wrestling Promoter Would Celebrate His Birthday
Today would have been the 67th birthday of Old School Wrestling Promoter Herb Abrams.
In 1990 Abrams started his version of the Universal Wrestling Federation (UWF), not to be confused with Bill Watts former promotion of the same name, and aired a weekly TV show called UWF Fury Hour on SportsChannel America.
Herb’s goal was to actually compete with Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation, something he never even came close at achieving.
Despite only running a rather smaller promotion (compared to the big leagues), he did have quite a few of former WWF & NWA/WCW names on his roster, including Paul Orndorff, Sid Vicious, Steve Williams, Bam Bam Bigelow, Ivan Koloff, Ken Patera, Cactus Jack, Bob Orton Jr., Billy Jack Haynes, Don Muraco and The Killer Bees.
Bruno Sammartino & Lou Albano were among the commentators and at one point Abrams even brought in André The Giant in a non-wrestling role.
A 2020 season 2 episode of VICE’s Dark Side of The Ring documentaries was titled ‘Cocaine & Cowboy Boots: The Herb Abrams Story’ and featured his life, his run as UWF promoter, his cocaine addiction and his controversial death.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & REST IN PEACE HERB ABRAMS
