• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (March 22, 2009) – Old School WWF Veteran Passed Away

On this day in 2009, we lost Old School WWF Tag Team Veteran Steven Dunn (Real name: Steve Doll) at the age of 48 due to a blood clot, that reached his heart.

If you were watching World Wrestling Federation TV in 1993-1995, you will remember him as one half of the mid-card Tag Team ‘Well Dunn’ with his Tag Team partner Timothy Well (Rex King).

They were managed by Harvey Wippleman and feuded with The Bushwhackers for most of their WWF career.

Steven Dunn was also an entrant in the 1995 Royal Rumble match, just like his Tag Team partner Timothy Well.

† REST IN PEACE STEVEN DUNN

• Plan Changed For Segment On Last Week’s SmackDown

As seen on last week’s episode of SmackDown, former WWE Divas Champion Paige (who Michael Cole introduced as a “WWE Legend”) appeared live via satellite and announced the SmackDown Women’s Championship match for WrestleMania 36 in a segment with Bayley and Sasha Banks.

According to the Wrestling Observer, the original plan was for Paige to be present in person for this segment in the ring, but she refused to travel due to the current coronavirus situation:

“Paige made the announcement by Skype because she didn’t come and I don’t know if she could have, well I guess she could have. She was not one of those willing to come.

There have been other people not willing to come and WWE has been — both companies have been really good about it. It’s like ‘You’re not willing to come, fine, no problem.’ So they did the tape thing.”
