• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WCW Veteran Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker (Real name: DeWayne Bruce) celebrates his 58th birthday today.

DeWayne Bruce wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1989 until 2001.

As Buddy Lee Parker, he was mostly used as a jobber, that was sometimes teamed up with fellow undercard talent Lt. James Earl Wright and together they were known as ‘The State Patrol’.

Later on he became a member of Kevin Sullivan’s Dungeon of Doom stable, where he was known as Braun The Leprechaun.

Most people remember Bruce as the head coach of WCW’s very own wrestling school, the famous Power Plant, which was a similar facility as the WWE’s current Performance Center.


• Recently Released WWE Wrestler Announced For AEW Women’s Tag Team Tournament

AEW Women’s Tag Team Tournament, The Deadly Draw, will kick off this Monday on YouTube. So far, 4 name have been confirmed for the tournament, which include Nyla Rose & Ariane Andrew and Brandi Rhodes & Allie.

On his Saturday Night Special on Facebook, Chris Jericho confirmed two more names for the tournament, who’ll be Ty Conti (former NXT wrestler Taynara Conti) and Anna Jay.

Ty Conti and Anna Jay will face off against Nyla Rose and Ariane Andrews.

Below is what Jericho said:

“The women’s tag team tournament, I think you guys are really going to like it, we’re giving a lot of different people a chance. I was really surprised, there was a match Nyla Rose and Ariana Andrews against Ty Conti and Anna Jay.

Ty, I’m not sure how many matches she just had, I know she was with NXT, and Ariane, we haven’t seen her in a few years now, Anna Jay’s super green, even Nyla’s fairly green, so I didn’t know what to expect. I watched this match, and all four girls just kicked a$$! It was really good, it was way better than I expected. I’m not saying that in a mean way either, they really impressed me, all of them!”

Conti was released by WWE during the budget cuts in April.
