• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend Tatanka (Real name: Chris Chavis) celebrates his 59th birthday today.
After wrestling several house show matches in 1991, Tatanka made his televised World Wrestling Federation debut on the February 1, 1992, episode of WWF Superstars and managed to have one of the greatest and most memorable undefeated streaks in professional wrestling history, before Ludvig Borga beat him after almost 2 years.
Tatanka continued to wrestle for the WWF until early 1996 after a heel turn at SummerSlam 1994, where he joined “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase’s Million Dollar Corporation stable.
He returned to the now renamed WWE for another run from 2005 till 2007 and has also returned occasionally since then, usually for “Old School” specials like “Old School RAW” episodes or Battle Royals.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TATANKA!
• Rumor Killer On 2 NXT Wrestlers Getting WWE Main Roster Call-Up
WWE has been calling several NXT wrestlers to the main roster over the past couple of months.
Former NXT Tag Team Champion Matt Riddle will soon arrive on SmackDown, while Dominik Dijakovic is rumored to join RAW as well. Chelsea Green’s main roster call-up is also in the works.
WrestlingInc reported last week that Velveteen Dream and Io Shirai would also be coming to the main roster soon. However, that report turned out to be false as both of them aren’t expected to join the main roster anytime soon.
Io Shirai won the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, so expect her to stay on the black and gold brand for a good amount of time. On the other hand, WrestleTalk is reporting that WWE has decided to keep Dream on NXT for now.
Triple H commented on Dream’s status during his conference call last night and said that fans will have to ‘wait and see’ what they’ll do with Dream next.
