• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (May 3, 1996) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1996, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend Ray “The Crippler” Stevens (Real name: Carl Ray Stevens) at the age of 60 due to a heart attack in his sleep.
Stevens wrestled for 42 years, from 1950 till 1992, working for various territories such as the AWA, the World Wrestling Federation, CWF, Jim Crockett Promotions & NWA Big Time Wrestling.
He won championships in pretty much every promotion he worked for, but has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is most likely going to happen as part of their annual “Legacy Wing” inductions.
† REST IN PEACE RAY STEVENS!
September 5, 1935 – May 3, 1996

According to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer, the next Superstar Shake-Up is expected to be a little different:
“Somebody told me that somebody showed Vince the NFL draft after the Superstar Shake-Up and all of the pomp and circumstance and how they built everything up and what a giant deal it was and apparently they’re going to do things differently next time.”
