• “Not everybody’s relative needs to be allowed to wrestle at WrestleMania” – Wrestling Legend On Dominik Mysterio
Dominik Mysterio, son of Rey Mysterio, competed in his first ever WrestleMania match last Saturday.
The Mysterios lost to The Miz & Logan Paul in a tag team match.
On his Drive Thru podcast, legendary manager Jim Cornette said that Dominik shouldn’t be wrestling on the biggest show of the year and explained why.
Below is what he said about the 25-year-old wrestler:
“Not everybody’s relative needs to be allowed to wrestle at WrestleMania.
Logan Paul is an athlete, he looks like an athlete, he’s had shoot fights. Dominik Mysterio works hard, he can do stuff, you can tell he’s put a lot in his wrestling training, but he has put absolutely nothing in his physical training and he looks like the counter guy at Circuit City.
And – I love his father, great talent – I’ve never met this kid and I’m not trying to bury him as a horrible person, but I don’t think that he looks visually like a Superstar that should be wrestling on the biggest stage in the entire business.”

• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 88th 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
