• RAW Wrestler Says Hulk Hogan Is His Favorite Wrestler, Explains Why
Current RAW Wrestler Jaxson Ryker, whom most of you out there will remember from his Total Nonstop Action! days as ‘Gunner’, recently talked to Faith Life Fitness and was asked about his favorite wrestler of all time.
He revealed that his favorite wrestler is ‘The Immortal’ Hulk Hogan and also explained the reason behind it.
Here’s what Ryker said:
“Hulk Hogan. I was blown away by him at 5 years old, just captivated by him. Definitely Hulk Hogan.
I got a chance to work with Hogan in 2010 and 2012 in the ring. I saw him at WrestleMania this year, went up and shook his hand, and he instantly remembered me.
It was so cool. He’s like, ‘It’s good to see you, brother’.”
Last year, Ryker got heat for getting into politics on Twitter.
He’s currently the side-kick of Elias on the WWE RAW roster.

• Old School WWF Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 64th birthday of Old School WWF Veteran Bastion Booger (Real name: Mike Shaw).
Before Mike Shaw portrayed the gross but effective character of Bastion Booger in the World Wrestling Federation TV from 1993 to 1994, he had several other gimmicks, including Klondike Mike (territories), Makhan Singh (Calgary Stampede Wrestling), Norman the Lunatic (World Championship Wrestling), Trucker Norm (World Championship Wrestling) & Friar Ferguson (World Wrestling Federation).
Bastion Booger returned one last time during the 15th anniversary special episode of WWE Monday Night RAW in December 2007.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
