• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (May 8, 2018) – Old School WWF Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2018, we lost Old School WWF Veteran Big Bully Busick (Real name: Nick Busick) at the age of 63 due to a brain tumour.
The former police officer and former professional powerlifter made a name for himself when he was working for the World Wrestling Federation for a few months in 1991.
Big Bully lived up to his character when he bullied the kids in the audience and also harassed female ring announcer Mike McGuirk.
Busick was originally booked to be in a classic Survivor Series team with Skinner, The Berzerker & Col. Mustafa, but left the WWF shortly before the pay-per-view and was eventually replaced with Hercules.
† REST IN PEACE BIG BULLY BUSICK!
• Return Expected On SmackDown Soon
According to Slice Wrestling, former RAW Tag Team Champions AOP, Akam & Rezar, are expected to return to WWE programming soon.
AOP has been off WWE TV due to Akam’s injury.
It was also noted that AOP is expected to return and become a part of SmackDown Live as the blue brand is lacking strong tag teams.
Speaking of SmackDown’s Tag Team division, The Hardy Boyz relinquished the SmackDown Tag Team Titles last week due to Jeff Hardy being injured. The team of Daniel Bryan & Erick Rowan then went on to defeat The Usos on this week’s episode to become the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
