• “The only reason people remember him today is because of daddy-in-law” – WWF Legend Says Triple H Is Overrated
During a recent appearance on The 81 Podcast, WWF Legend Bret Hart ripped Triple H once again.
Here’s what The Hitman had to say:
“There’s always some guys, you know, that no matter what they do with them, you always wonder how they got there.
And I never thought Triple H ever had an idea, original idea, for anything. And I always thought he was overrated.
The only reason people even know him or remember him today is because of daddy, daddy-in-law.”
During this podcast appearance, Bret also said that Triple H backstabbed Ken Shamrock:
“To be honest, I think Triple H didn’t like him. Mostly, maybe, because he was connected to me.
But Triple H, I remember, didn’t like him. And I remember Triple H was working with him a lot. He was always criticizing him and talking about him.
I think that was one of the guys that stabbed him in the back a lot.”

• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 90th birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend Don Leo Jonathan (Real name: Don Heaton).
Don Leo Jonathan wrestled for several territories in Canada and the United States during the 40s, 50s, 60s & 70s, before he retired in 1980.
In his final match, he teamed up with Andre the Giant & Roddy Piper to defeat The Sheepherders (The Bushwhackers in WWF) & Buddy Rose.
Standing at 6-foot-6 and weighing over 300 lbs, Jonathan was a former 2-time NWA Canadian Heavyweight Champion, a former 2-time NWA Texas Heavyweight Champion and a former NWA Canadian Tag Team Champion.
In 1973 and 1974, he also wrestled for Vince McMahon Sr.’s World Wide Wrestling Federation, which a few years later was renamed to ‘World Wrestling Federation’.
Don Leo Jonathan was inducted into multiple Hall of Fames, including Stampede Wrestling Hall of Fame and the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame, but has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which – if it happens – will be as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & REST IN PEACE
April 29, 1931 – October 13, 2018
