• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF/WCW Veteran Jim Powers (Real name: James Manley) celebrates his 65th birthday today.

Powers used to be the Tag Team Partner of Paul Roma in a team called “The Young Stallions” from 1987 till 1989, before becoming a singles wrestler, often used as a jobber to the stars, until leaving the World Wrestling Federation in 1994.

He then joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1996, where he became a mid-carder again, managed by famous Old School manager Teddy Long, before he turned into an enhancement talent yet again and was let go by WCW due to a neck injury he had in 1998.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIM POWERS!
