• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF/WCW Veteran “The African Dream” Akeem aka One Man Gang (Real name: George Gray) turns 59 today.

After touring the territories for several years, he wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1987 until 1990, and then worked for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1991 and again from 1995 till 1996.

The last time he was seen on television was at WrestleMania X-Seven, when One Man Gang was a participant in the famous Gimmick Battle Royal.


• Possible Reason Behind WWE Cancelling Upcoming Intergender Match

As we noted before, Dean Ambrose vs. Nia Jax was being advertised for a WWE Live Event on February 22 in Jonesboro, AR.

Below is the promo for this match:

However, this match has now been cancelled.

According to Post Wrestling, WWE noted that the advertisement for Dean Ambrose vs. Nia Jax match is outdated and it won’t be taking place.

With that being said, many believe that the ad wasn’t outdated and the matter is something else.

There’s a rumor going on that WWE received backlash from a sponsor for promoting man-woman violence (intergender wrestling) and that’s why WWE had to pull the match.

Also, one of the main reasons why WWE didn’t feature man on woman violence for a long time (and also why they went PG) is because of their deal with Mattel as they didn’t want WWE to feature that on their programming.

We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
