• Pat McAfee Comments On Report Of Him Being Pulled From WWE TV
Pat McAfee last appeared on WWE programming at the NXT TakeOver: WarGames earlier this month, where he led Pete Dunne and NXT Tag Team Champions Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan in a losing effort against The Undisputed Era in a War Games match in the main event.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, McAfee has been pulled from TV until spring.
“We’re told McAfee will be off TV for a while. It was WWE’s call, not his. No exact time frame was said, but we’re told he was given the impression it’ll be the spring. He’s such a natural at this and really, if the main roster creative wasn’t such a mess, he should be there.
Plus, his affiliation would get far more sports media talk if it was on RAW or SmackDown and unlike most celebrities, you don’t have to worry that his segments or his physical end will come off looking bad.”
Since various sites reported the story as something big, McAfee poked fun at the situation on Twitter and wrote the following:
“I think I got fired on Christmas.”

• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School World Wrestling Federation Legend Demolition Ax (Real name: Bill Eadie) turns 73 today.
After working the territories for quite a while, he joined the WWF in 1983 as The Masked Superstar, before he became known as Ax, one half of one of the most successful Tag Teams in WWF history: DEMOLITION!
Despite popular misconception, Demolition still holds the record for being the longest title holders of their particular WWF/E World Tag Team Championships for a fact, as the record can not ever be beaten anymore, after those titles were retired in 2010.
The record that those new modern day PG era guys falsely claimed to have broken, actually happened with a different kind of WWE Tag Team Championships, that were only established in 2002, 11 years after Demolition vanished from WWF TV.
Therefore still the longest reigning WWF/E World Tag Team Champions: Demolition !!!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEMOLITION AX!
