• Old School Title Returning To WWE Soon
WWE Hall Of Famer “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase is currently appearing on WWE NXT on Tuesday nights and is involved in a program with NXT wrestler Cameron Grimes (who is doing a modern era millionaire gimmick).
DiBiase appeared live on last week’s episode and cost Grimes his match by distracting him.
DiBiase & Grimes are set for a “Million Dollar Face-Off” in the ring this Tuesday night on NXT.
According to the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast (who have broken quite a few stories in the past), the Million Dollar Title is coming back:
“He’s gonna appear in the ring next week with Grimes. Million Dollar Belt is back. I can confirm the Million Dollar Belt is back baby!
I was told that it’s like a comparison of old money versus that whole bitcoin money. It’s unsophisticated idiots becoming millionaires overnight because of cryptocurrency and the Million Dollar Man represents old wealth, 1980s wealth. I think that’s the story here with this.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (May 23, 1999) – Old School WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1999, we lost Old School WWF Legend “The King of Harts” Owen Hart at the age of 34 due to an accident during a LIVE PPV.
Owen Hart started in his family’s promotion ‘Calgary Stampede Wrestling’ during the 80s, before joining the World Wrestling Federation for the first time in 1988 as The Blue Blazer.
Owen returned to the WWF under his own name in 1991 and stayed with the promotion till his tragic death during the ‘WWF Over The Edge 1999’ PPV.
He became the 1994 King of the Ring and won several other titles, such as the WWF Intercontinental Championship and the WWF Tag Team Championship, but has yet to be (posthumously) inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, a move that is currently prevented by his widow Martha Hart.
† REST IN PEACE OWEN HART
May 7, 1965 – May 23, 1999
