• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates Her Birthday
Old School WWF Legend Leilani Kai (Real name: Patty Seymour) is celebrating her 60th birthday today.
Leilani Kai was on top of the world during the so called “Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Connection” days of the Golden WWF Era, when she defeated Wendi Richter at WWF The War to Settle the Score to become the WWF Women’s Champion.
Leilani lost the title back to Richter a month later at the inaugural WrestleMania, and later started to form a Tag Team with Judy Martin, called The Glamour Girls, managed by “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart.
In 1994, Kai challenged then WWF Women’s Champion Alundra Blayze for the title at WrestleMania X, but lost.
The two would wrestle several more times in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where she was later also known as “Patty Stonegrinder” and Alundra was known as Madusa.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEILANI KAI!
• Rusev Breaks Kayfabe When Asked About Bobby Lashley
During a recent interview with Reel Talker, RAW Superstar Rusev was asked about his real thoughts on Bobby Lashley (who’s now the storyline husband of Lana).
Rusev broke kayfabe and said the following:
“Bobby is very respectful and a great guy. He’s game for anything and is not like a stubborn veteran who thinks he knows everything. It’s very cool to see. He’s a really good dude.”
Rusev was also asked how he feels when his real-life wife, Lana, kisses Lashley on live TV:
“Go ask her. She’s the one who has to kiss [Lashley]. I’m not kissing a guy. Kudos to her for being professional.
If she didn’t agree to it, we would have done something different. But here we are, a few months in, the hottest angle in WWE.”
