• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW/WWF Legend Booker T (Real name: Robert Huffman) celebrates his 55th birthday today.
Booker T became famous in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling as one half of the Tag Team Harlem Heat, before winning his first World Title at the ‘Bash at the Beach 2000’ PPV.
When Vince McMahon bought the promotion in March 2001, Booker T was among those WCW Stars who were signed to a World Wrestling Federation contract right away.
As the reigning and defending WCW World Heavyweight Champion at that time, he played a major role in the infamous Invasion angle, that saw the ‘WCW/ECW Alliance’ feud with the WWF Superstars.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOOKER T!
• Stephanie McMahon Comments On Coronavirus Affecting WrestleMania 36
During a recent interview with Tampa Bay Times, Stephanie McMahon was asked if WWE is taking precautions if coronavirus affects WrestleMania 36.
Below is what Stephanie said:
“The health and safety of not only our fan base, but also our superstars, really does come first.
We don’t want to put anyone in a bad situation ever, regardless of the circumstance. Those are not risks worth taking.”
John Saboor (WWE’s executive vice president of special events) said the following about this:
“Given the number of live events that (WWE) does, it’s constantly monitoring global events. There are active and ongoing discussions at play internally, like there are in any sector of American business, and certainly families as a whole. So I think those will continue.”
Rob Higgins (executive director of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission) said the following regarding working towards fan safety at WrestleMania 36:
“You’ve got to be nimble, and you’ve got to be ready. Thirty-six days is a long time, so it’s hard to predict. I think we just continue to information gather as much as possible, so that we are as prepared as possible.”
Stephanie then added the following:
“And if necessary, enact those measures.”
