• Paige Once Played Roman Reigns’ Ex-Girlfriend
While current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and former Divas Champion Paige have never had an on-screen storyline in WWE, they were once paired in a promo class during their days in WWE’s developmental territory.
The legendary Dusty Rhodes used to teach WWE’s developmental wrestlers in FCW/NXT.
At Starrcast V, Paige recalled Dusty telling her to play Roman’s ex-girlfriend during a class.
Below is what the former NXT Women’s Champion said:
“I remember there was this promo where I was sitting and [Dusty Rhodes] goes, ‘Alright baby get up there.’ I’m like ‘And do what?’ And he looks at Roman, who was Leakee back then, ‘Leakee baby get up there. You don’t say anything. Saraya, he broke up with you and stole your toaster. Go!’
I’m like I am so scared, did this promo and I was mortified. Not just anyone is watching me, when I got there it was Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Roman, everyone that is flourishing on the main roster is right in front of me.”

• Old School Wrestling Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Veteran “The Boogie Woogie Man” Jimmy Valiant (Real name: James Fanning) celebrates his 80th birthday today.
After teaming with his kayfabe brother “Luscious Johnny V” Johnny Valiant during the 70s, Jimmy Valiant ended up becoming one of the greatest comedy characters in pro wrestling history, when he adapted the “Boogie Woogie Man” persona while wrestling on NWA TV (including several PPVs) for Jim Crockett Promotions.
In 1996, the Valiant Brothers got inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame (now WWE Hall of Fame) by “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith & “The King of Harts” Owen Hart.
They became the first Tag Team ever to be inducted into the WWF/E Hall of Fame!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOOGIE WOOGIE MAN!
