• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 16, 2003) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2003 we lost Old School Wrestling Legend Stu Hart at the age of 88.
Stu Hart wrestled for various territories during the 40s, 50s & 60s and he was also the legendary promoter of the ‘Calgary Stampede Wrestling’ territory from 1967 till he sold the promotion to Vince McMahon in 1984.
Though in 1986, one of his sons, Bruce Hart, re-opened the promotion on his own.
Stu Hart was one of the few legendary wrestlers, who wrestled all kinds of animals like Bears & Tigers.
He was the proud father of fellow wrestling legends Bret “The Hitman” Hart & Owen Hart, as well as the father-in-law of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart & “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith.
REST IN PEACE STU HART!
• Reason Behind RAW Star Being Heavily Protected
If you watched last night’s RAW, one thing that you might have noticed is that RAW Tag Team Champion Drew McIntyre was heavily protected and booked as a major player on RAW.
While McIntyre didn’t qualify for the WWE World Cup as he lost to Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins, but he didn’t get pinned and lost via count-out.
Later in the main event, McIntyre was once again protected and he made a major impact after he laid out Strowman with the Claymore Kick after the ‘Dogs of War’ stable broke up.
McIntyre was heavily protected because he’s in-line for a major push.
The Dirty Sheets reported a few weeks back that the current plan for Royal Rumble 2019 is for “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns to defend the Universal Championship against Drew McIntyre.
This means that Reigns is expected to retain the Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar & Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel PPV.
