• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 86th birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran Waldo Von Erich (Real name: Walter Sieber).

He was named a Von Erich, when legendary WCCW promoter Fritz Von Erich billed him as his brother.

During the 60s & 70s, people did believe that Waldo was a legitimate family member, while later on the fans didn’t fall for Lance Von Erich, who was brought in as Waldo’s son in 1985.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE

October 2, 1933 – July 5, 2009

• Roman Reigns Explains Why He Hasn’t Had A Title Match Since His Return, On Facing The Rock

“The Big Dog” Roman Reigns went undercover on the internet with GQ Sports and answered fan questions.

Below are the highlights:

On who’s better, him or John Cena:

“I beat him. There’s no need to argue here because I beat him. He’s great. He’s really good, but I beat him.”

On why he hasn’t had a Title match since his return earlier this year:

“So this is kind of something that a lot of people complain about – me being in Title matches. For me, just coming back with a different perspective, participation is somewhat cool enough for now I guess, just enjoy being out there.

Whether there’s a title on the line or not, I just enjoy being in that ring and being able to be healthy enough to do my thing. So when the time’s right, we’ll get back in to the title picture, but right now I’m just enjoying myself. Don’t rush me, man.”

On if he wants to face The Rock in WWE:

“If it’s done right. I think, obviously with the star that he is, where he is in his career, it would be huge. It would be great. But, you know, we’re family, so it has to make sense. And free the guy up. Can we get him a break? Can he take a day off? If he can get a week off we might be able to make it happen. So… doubtful.”
