• Old School ECW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School ECW Veteran Paul Varelans celebrates his 49th birthday today.
Before joining Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling, he used to be an MMA fighter who had 8 UFC fights between 1995 and 1996, 4 of which he won, while losing the other 4 fights.
Fresh out of the UFC, Varelans was brought into ECW in 1996 to put kayfabe shoot-fighter Taz over, but only agreed to do it after ECW diva Missy Hyatt offered to give him a BJ when the match is over.
He lost to Taz via submission in a worked “Shoot Fight”, but when Missy told him she doesn’t blow jobbers, Paul got angry and tore up the entire ECW locker room.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL VARELANS!
• The Undertaker Appearing On Tonight’s RAW
WWE announced the following:
The Deadman returns to Raw to address Triple H
“A series of increasingly personal attacks have all but wiped out any pretense of mutual respect between The Undertaker and Triple H as they prepare to battle for the last time ever at WWE Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia.
Last week seemed to ice it for Triple H, who responded to The Deadman’s insults of Shawn Michaels by promising to “put him down.” Now, The Last Outlaw rides back onto Team Red to offer his rebuttal. Will this remain a war of words for now, or will things escalate into physicality?”
