• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (March 4, 2019) – Old School WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2019, we lost Old School WWF Legend & WrestleMania 2 Main Eventer King Kong Bundy (Real name: Christopher Pallies) at the age of 63, due to complications from diabetes.
King Kong Bundy wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1985 till 1988 and again from 1994 to 1995, but later continued to wrestle on the independent scene until he retired in 2006.
The highlight of his professional wrestling career was without a shadow of a doubt, main eventing WWF WrestleMania 2 against WWF Champion “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan in a Steel Cage.
King Kong Bundy has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which they failed on doing while he was still alive, similar to another big man, Big Van Vader, who also passed away without being inducted (which is obviously going to happen in the future).
Bundy guest-starred in two episodes of the legendary comedy series “Married with children”.
† REST IN PEACE KING KONG BUNDY

• NXT Moving To Tuesday Nights After WrestleMania 37, Reason Behind It
The Wednesday Night War between WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite is scheduled to end after WrestleMania 37.
According to the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, NXT is scheduled to move to Tuesday nights starting April 13, which will be the first NXT show after WrestleMania 37. Fightful confirmed this as well.
According to the Wrestling Observer, NXT is moving to Tuesday nights because of the NBC Sports Network shutting down, which could result in some NHL content being aired on Wednesday nights on the USA Network.
An official announcement from WWE is expected soon.
Speaking of NXT, two Titles will be on the line on next week’s show:
– NXT Championship Match: Finn Balor (c) vs. Adam Cole
– NXT Women’s Championship Match: Io Shirai (c) vs. Toni Storm
