• Old School WWF Tag Team Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Tag Team Legend “Bushwhacker” Butch Miller (Real name: Robert Miller) celebrates his 75th birthday today.
Him and his fellow New Zealand Tag Team partner Luke Williams originally started as heels called ‘The Sheepherders’, touring several NWA terriroties such as Jim Crockett Promotions, UWF Mid-South Wrestling & NWA Pacific Northwest during the 80s.
In January 1989, they joined the World Wrestling Federation as comedy babyface Tag Team ‘The Bushwhackers’, and despite them never winning any WWF titles and never rising above mid-card level due to their comedy status, they were so over with the fans that they were wrestling on WWF TV for almost 8 years till they were let go in the fall of 1996.
In 2015, The Bushwhackers Butch & Luke were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by their former flagbearer (on NWA TV) “Johnny Ace” John Laurinaitis.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUTCH MILLER!

At today’s WWE Live Event in Sydney, Australia, New Day member Xavier Woods suffered an injury during a tag team match.
Big E & Xavier Woods were facing The Revival for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles and Woods got injured during the match, and this led to Big E wrestling against The Revival on his own during the match.

The referee threw the “X” sign (which represents a legitimate injury) and Woods was then helped to the back.
It looks like Woods suffered an Achilles Tendon injury as below is what he tweeted after this:
