• SPOILER: Round 5 Of WWE Draft Revealed – Tag Team Splits Up
Last night’s episode of SmackDown featured the first 4 rounds of the WWE Draft, in which majority of wrestlers from pool 1 made it to RAW or SmackDown.
However, some weren’t picked by any brand and became free agents.
On the Fightful post-SmackDown podcast, Sean Ross Sapp reported that the following picks will be made in the 5th round in the SmackDown pool:
RAW: Humberto Carrillo, Drew Gulak, Tucker (of Heavy Machinery)
SmackDown: Kalisto, Murphy
Heavy Machinery has officially parted ways, as Otis was retained by SmackDown last night, while Tucker will be picked by RAW.
It should be noted that Mickie James, Gran Metalik, Lince Dorado and Shorty G are now the free agents from pool 1.
Update: These draft picks were confirmed on this morning’s WWE Talking Smack.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 10, 1999) – Heroes of Wrestling
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on October 10, 1999, Fosstone Productions aired ‘Heroes of Wrestling’ LIVE on PPV from the Casino Magic in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.
This should have been the first in a series of 4 PPVs, that would feature Old School 80s & 90s WWF/NWA/WCW Legends, but due to a low buy rate of only 29,000 pay-per-view buys, the plans were cancelled.
Jake Roberts appeared intoxicated (drunk and/or high) for his co-main event match against Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, which is why promoter Bill Stone sent out the wrestlers that were scheduled for the main event, King Kong Bundy & Yokozuna, to team up with them, thus putting the 2 main events together into a Tag Team main event, in order to salvage the situation.
While this PPV has a very bad reputation among the internet fans, some calling it “The worst PPV ever” like Meltzer wrote in 1999, the event itself was still a lot more entertaining than 99% of the modern day WWE PG-Era (2008-now) shows.
Here are the PPV results:
The Samoan Swat Team defeated Marty Jannetty & Tommy Rogers
Greg Valentine defeated George Steele
2 Cold Scorpio defeated Julio Fantastico
The Bushwhackers defeated The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff
Tully Blanchard defeated Stan Lane
Abdullah the Butcher vs. One Man Gang ended in a double-count-out
Jimmy Snuka defeated Bob Orton Jr.
Jim Neidhart & King Kong Bundy defeated Jake Roberts & Yokozuna
