• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 15, 1998) – Old School Wrestler Passed Away
On this day in 1998, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran “Rad Radford” Louie Spicolli (Real name: Louis Mucciolo Jr.) at the very young age of 27 due to a drug overdose.
Spicolli wrestled for all the big 3 promotions of the 90s … after doing televised jobs for the company for years, he joined the World Wrestling Federation full-time as Rad Radford (1995-1996), before working for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (1996-1997) and eventually joining Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1997.
Louie was scheduled to wrestle Larry Zbyszko at the WCW SuperBrawl VIII PPV, but that match never happened, because Spicolli passed away one week before the event.
† REST IN PEACE LOUIE SPICOLLI

• Shocking News Regarding Dean Ambrose’s Current WWE Status
According to The Dirty Sheets, Dean Ambrose’s current WWE storyline is something that Ambrose has pitched to WWE Officials himself.
While it is true that Ambrose’s 5 year contract with WWE is coming to an end in April, the announcement that WWE made regarding Ambrose’s departure is a part of the storyline that Ambrose has pitched.
Ambrose pitched this storyline by proposing the idea of someone dying and then popping up on TV out of nowhere. While Ambrose understands that WWE can’t do exactly this because of the sponsors, but Ambrose pitched the idea of WWE announcing his departure, booking him like he’s done and then set up a major swerve down the line after his contract has expired.
The current agreement between WWE & Ambrose is that if Ambrose is able to create the buzz that he wants with this storyline, then he will get a new WWE contract with ‘right to refusal’ creative clause (something that current WWE Champion Daniel Bryan has as well).
The next 3 months are very crucial for Ambrose’s WWE future. If Ambrose fails to create a buzz that he wants, then he’s free to leave WWE when his contract expires.
