• Old School WWF Tag Team Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Tag Team Veteran D-Von Dudley (Real name: Devon Hughes) celebrates his 47th birthday today.
In early 1996, D-Von joined his (kayfabe) half-brother Bubba Ray Dudley, with whom he formed a Tag Team, that eventually surpassed the Dudley Boyz faction and ultimately became one of the most famous Tag Teams in professional wrestling history.
In 1999, they jumped ship to the World Wrestling Federation and stayed until 2005, when they joined Total Nonstop Action! (now known as iMPACT Wrestling).
The Dudley Boyz won pretty much all major World Tag Team Championships that are out there including the titles of the World Wrestling Federation, Extreme Championship Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling (on WWF TV during the invasion storyline), the National Wrestling Alliance (in TNA), Total Nonstop Action! and New Japan Pro Wrestling.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY D-VON!
• Original Plan For Brock Lesnar’s Assault On Seth Rollins Revealed
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar brutally attacked Seth Rollins.
Lesnar F5ed Rollins on an open steel chair multiple times and this resulted in Rollins bleeding from the mouth.
According to Brad Shepard, the original plan for that segment was something else, but RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman changed it to make it more brutal:
“According to a source in WWE, Seth Rollins was originally supposed to take an F5 in the ring, and then one through the announcers table.
The decision to up the ante was made by Paul Heyman, with Seth agreeing to those rough chair spots, of course.”
