• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School NWA/WWF Legend Tully Blanchard celebrates his 66th birthday today.
Whenever you think of Tully Blanchard, you think of The 4 Horsemen, the legendary faction he was a member of from their foundation in late 1985 till he left for the World Wrestling Federation in September 1988.
In the WWF Blanchard teamed up with his fellow 4 Horsemen buddy Arn Anderson as The Brain Busters, managed by Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, and together they won the WWF Tag Team Championship in 1989, after they had already won the NWA World Tag Team Championship twice (1987 & 1988).
In 2012, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame together with other Horsemen members “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Barry Windham & J.J. Dillon.
“The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes inducted them.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TULLY!
• More On Edge Returning To WWE As A “Special Attraction”
As we noted yesterday, WWE Hall of Famer Edge turned down all the rumors regarding his return to WWE during an interview (tap here to read more).
However, Mike Johnson of PWInsider firmly believes Edge is going to make a comeback to WWE this year as a “Special Attraction”:
“I believe he is returning to the ring he has actually signed a contract with the company. He actually signed that new contract after a little flirtation with All Elite Wrestling and we have heard that there is a pretty high upside and we’ve been told that there is a pretty high upside to people that we’ve spoken to wrestlers or otherwise in WWE say that Adam Copeland will return to the ring this year as a special attraction and he will be competing for WWE.
The Royal Rumble makes the most sense for him to return and make a big splash headed into WrestleMania season even if he’s gonna be a major attraction at the February 27th Saudi Arabia show.
I’ve asked around and no one has told me that they have heard of Adam Copeland going to the Rumble. I stand by what I have previously stated that I believe we will see him on WWE programming and I’m gonna leave it at that.”
