• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Veteran Pat Tanaka (Real name: Patrick Tanaka) celebrates his 56th birthday today.

After years in the AWA, Tanaka joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1990 as one half of Mr. Fuji’s Tag Team ‘The Orient Express’.

When his team partner Akio Sato left in late 1990, Tanaka’s old AWA team partner Paul Diamond replaced him, going by the name of Kato, but was wearing a mask to keep the asian gimmick intact.

Fun Fact: While wrestling for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling during the mid-90s, they gave Tanaka an entrance theme song, that eventually ended up becoming Bill Goldberg’s – now legendary – theme song.

• Paige Issues Statement On People Commenting About Her Weight

Former WWE Divas Champion Paige issued the following statement on Instagram regarding people commenting about her weight:

“Because of the business I’m in we have an enormous spotlight on us. Which along with it comes wonderfully incredible things, but also some bad. One thing is weight.

For the past 8 years I’ve struggled with how I’ve wanted my body. Mostly because of the “sweet” people on the internet sees that as soon as you put on a pound or lose it they jump on the judging band wagon, then say, “you should expect criticism because of the career path you chose” you should NEVER go out of your way to make someone feel bad about themselves. Even if they are in the “spotlight” 🙄 ..

I’ve hit my lowest weight and hit my biggest weight in just the space of 2 years. But I stopped caring what people said a while ago. Helps when you surround yourself with positive people and positive influencers.

I know you hear it from me about my bf but he’s a real driving force behind my healthier and happier lifestyle. Along with the best friends and family I could ever imagine.

Long story short. F*ck what people think and you’ll be a lot happier 🖤”
