• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW Veteran Scotty Riggs (Real name: Scott Antol) celebrates his 48th birthday today.
Scotty Riggs joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1995 and was put in a Tag Team with Marcus Alexander Bagwell, called “The American Males”.
In November 1996, Bagwell turned Heel on Riggs and joined the New World Order, resulting in Scotty becoming a singles wrestler.
By late 1997, he joined Raven’s stable “The Raven’s Flock”, before he was released in 1999 and joined Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling for a while in 2000.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCOTTY RIGGS!

• The Rock Reacts To Roman Reigns Being In Remission
The biggest news in the wrestling world this week was that Roman Reigns is in remission and “The Big Dog” is back to do battle for his yard in the WWE.
Reigns got a huge pop on RAW when he came out and announced this good news. He even got physical later in the night, when he delivered some Superman Punches and a Spear!
Below is what Old School WWF Legend The Rock had to say about Roman being in remission:
His Leukemia’s in remission! 👏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
Look at my handsome SOB cousin here @WWERomanReigns on @GMA with my dear buddy, the always lovely & inspiring @RobinRoberts! (between us I paid Roman in tacos and tequila to say nice things about me). Wait til you see him in @HobbsAndShaw 💪🏾 https://t.co/Hm0kClfQfC

Speaking of Reigns, he might be returning to in-ring action for a match at FastLane 2019.
According to local advertisements in the Cleveland, Ohio area, the following match is scheduled to take place at FastLane 2019:
– 2 on 3 Handicap Match: Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley & Baron Corbin
As we noted before, some type of a Shield reunion is expected to take place at FastLane 2019, so it is possible that Dean Ambrose somehow gets involved in this.
As seen on this week’s RAW, Reigns & Rollins saved Ambrose from a 4 on 1 beatdown.
Below is the current match-card for FastLane 2019:
– WWE Championship Match: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Kevin Owens
– SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: The Usos (c) vs. Shane McMahon & The Miz
– SmackDown Women’s Championship Match: Asuka (c) vs. Mandy Rose
– WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Match: The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection (Bayley & Sasha Banks) (c) vs. Nia Jax & Tamina Snuka
