• Old School AWA Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School AWA Veteran Greg Gagne celebrates his 72nd birthday today.
He’s the son of the late great Wrestler & AWA Promoter Verne Gagne and most Old School fans will remember him as one half of the Tag Team ‘The High Flyers’ with his team partner Jim Brunzell.
Greg Gagne wrestled for his fathers promotion, the American Wrestling Association, from 1972 until the promotion closed in the spring of 1991.
After retiring from active professional wrestling, he became a road agent for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREG GAGNE!
• NXT Wrestler Working On Kane Inspired Wrestling Gear
During a recent interview on WWE’s The Bump, NXT wrestler Tegan Nox (who is a big fan of Kane) revealed that she’s working on a Kane inspired wrestling gear.
Below are the highlights:
On her Kane inspired wrestling gear:
“I am working on some Kane inspired wrestling gear. So, it’ll be like Kane meets Captain Marvel. I’m excited about it!”
On her recent loss to NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai:
“I learned that I could take a beating. I’ve learned a lot from Io. There’s a reason why she’s the NXT Women’s Champion. I mean, she’s one of the best wrestlers in the entire world. [Our match] was bloody, but exciting.”
On being a part of two main events in NXT in recent weeks:
“I’m sitting outside in Florida, and I got chills when you said that. It means the world to me. It’s something I never thought I would ever do was main event NXT or any other sort of WWE show. But to do it twice in the last month, it’s mind-blowing to me.”
