• Old School WrestleMania Celebrity Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would’ve been the 78th birthday of Old School WWF WrestleMania 1 Celebrity Muhammad Ali (fka Cassius Clay).
Ali is considered one of the best Boxers of all time, and probably even THE most famous Boxer in the history of Boxing.
He wasn’t just the 2nd (outside) special guest referee at the inaugural WWF WrestleMania in 1985, but also presented the WCW World Heavyweight Championship to “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan at the end of the Halloween Havoc 1994 PPV, as well as fighting Wrestling Legend Antonio Inoki years earlier (1976) in a “Boxer vs. Wrestler” match.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016

During a recent edition of his Hall Of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T had the following to say about this:
“I’m not holding my judgement on it. I mean, I’m serious. Big-ups to Tessa Blanchard because she’s good. She’s really good at what she does, but this is the worst decision for an idea that IMPACT Wrestling’s ever had in the history of that company.
It’s really that bad. It’s worse than paying me 10 grand for a six hour power commercial that never aired. I’m serious. That’s how ridiculous it is.
Because, now the men — all of the men in the company, if they wrestle her and she beats them, it diminishes every guy in the company. I mean, who’s the top guy in the company now?
I can’t see ‘The Man’ Becky Lynch wrestling Samoa Joe or Brock Lesnar. I mean, this is the worst idea in the history of wrestling, and to throw it out there, it’s the only way it can really be thrown out and it makes me question and wonder if somebody’s trying to blow this thing up on purpose.
Like somebody’s saying, ‘Man, let’s see how bad we can mess this up.’ You know what I’m saying? I’m serious.”
