• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran “The Natural” Butch Reed (Real name: Bruce Reed) celebrates his 65th birthday today.
Most Old School Wrestling Fans remember Butch Reed for his time in Bill Watts’ Mid-South Wrestling (1983-1986), the World Wrestling Federation (1986-1988) and Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1988-1992), where he formed a famous Tag Team with Ron Simmons called ‘Doom’.
During his time in the WWF, Reed was considered to become the Intercontinental Champion, but the decision was changed, when Reed no-showed an earlier house show, so they decided to put the belt on The Honky Tonk Man instead.
Unlike his former Tag Team partner Ron Simmons, Butch Reed has not been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame yet, which might not happen anytime soon either, as he was named part of a lawsuit against the WWE regarding traumatic brain injuries, which was dismissed in September 2018.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUTCH REED!
