• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 18, 1997) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 1997, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran “The Final Solution” Jeep Swenson (Real name: Robert Swenson Jr.) at the age of 40 due to heart failure.
After making a name for himself in Fritz Von Erich’s WCCW World-Class Championship Wrestling territory as “The Mercenary” Jeep Swenson, and a stint in the later GWF Global Wrestling Federation, he was brought into Ted Turner’s WCW World Championship Wrestling in 1996 as “The Final Solution” to join “The Alliance to End Hulkamania”, consisting of The Four Horsemen, The Dungeon of Doom & Z-Gangsta (fka Zeus).
After jewish organisations grouched about Jeep’s new name, WCW President Eric Bischoff decided to slightly change it to “The Ultimate Solution”.
Jeep Swenson also had roles in quite a few Hollywood movies, for example playing “Lugwrench” Perkins in ‘No Holds Barred’ and playing Bane in the famous 1997 movie ‘Batman & Robin’.
† REST IN PEACE JEEP SWENSON

• Rumored Title Match For WWE Payback 2020
WWE Payback pay-per-view will be returning on August 30th, just one week after SummerSlam this Sunday.
Only one match has been announced for the event so far, which will see WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, Sasha Banks & Bayley, defending their Titles against an unknown Tag Team.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that The Golden Role Models will put their Titles on the line against the team of Asuka & Shayna Baszler.
WWE already planted the seeds for this match on last night’s RAW, when Baszler made Bayley tap out to win the Tag Team match between The Golden Role Models and the team of Asuka & Baszler.
