• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Veteran The Patriot (Real name: Del Wilkes) celebrates his 58th birthday today.

Some of you might remember his World Championship Wrestling stint, where he teamed with Marcus Alexander Bagwell as the tag team ‘Stars and Stripes’ from 1994 to 1995.

The Patriot’s biggest claim to fame was still his run with the World Wrestling Federation in 1997, where he challenged WWF World Heavyweight Champion Bret “The Hitman” Hart for the title at the ‘In Your House 17: Ground Zero’ PPV.

An injury kept him from wrestling as a member of Team USA at Survivor Series 1997, and they let him go in early 1998.

Several years after Del Wilkes retired, his former WWF co-worker “Salvatore Sincere” Tom Brandi started using The Patriot gimmick on the independent scene and falsely claimed that Del gave him permission to use the character, which Wilkes has publicly denied.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

• Randy Orton Reacts To Embarrassing Botch On AEW Dynamite

There was a major botch on this week’s AEW Dynamite. A wrestler was delivering punches to Dustin Rhodes that weren’t even connecting and they were placed right in front of the camera.

You can watch it below:

Below is how veteran wrestlers reacted to this on Twitter:

Mark Henry: Fire this person now.

Trish Stratus: ?‍♀️

The Blue Meanie: Oh what the f*ck man!! Poor Dustin. It’s TV!! I like AEW but seriously. What in the f*cking f*ck?!

Lance Storm: Maybe they forgot to cut the eye holes out of his mask. ?‍♂️

Below is what 13 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton had to say about this:

“He apparently is a seasoned vet and is used to live tv and just assumed that the camera to his left was the one with that red dot thingy on it for those horrendous f*cking punches

Or quit the business cuz you’re the drizzling sh*ts

….or you can come to the top company and I’ll teach you one of the most important aspects of our biz. Throwing a f*cking ??”
