• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 16, 2006) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2006, we lost Old School NWA/WWF Legend The Spoiler (Real name: Don Jardine) at the age of 66, due to complications from a heart attack and leukemia.
After a long and successful career in several Territories, The Spoiler joined the World Wrestling Federation roster in the summer of 1984.
When the WWF purchased Georgia Championship Wrestling to get their TBS timeslot, The Spoiler was a house hold name, whom the TBS viewers were familiar with, so Vince signed him to a deal.

• Primo Reveals Real Reason Why He Failed A WWE Drug Test
WWE recently announced that Primo and Bobby Roode have violated the WWE Wellness Policy by failing a drug test.
During a recent interview with Primera Hora, Primo revealed the real reason why WWE announced that he failed a drug test:
“I was not on the road (on tour with the company), I was not scheduled for any event in the near future. I am in Puerto Rico when they called me suddenly, not to use me, but to travel to do a doping test.
I was ready to do it, but I told them that I was in Puerto Rico and that I was willing to go to a place (laboratory) that they chose to test me without any problem, without any discomfort. I was not going to pay for a trip to just get tested for doping.
I didn’t hear anything from the company and I thought they were going to call me when they found a place to do the test. Almost two months pass and I get a letter that I am suspended, according to them, because I refused to take the test. And that is not correct. They took it as I was out of the country, but I was available.
I don’t want them to say that I failed to test positive because that is totally false and incorrect. They usually do their doping test at events, someone appears there to collect the urine of fighters, employees, referees…to do their evaluation once a month.
I did not say anything positive. I was in Puerto Rico. I have to clarify it because my reputation is worth more than any check.”
This is similar to what happened with Paige once again when WWE announced that she has failed a drug test. She only failed the test because she didn’t take it.
