• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
WWF Attitude Era Veteran “The Lethal Weapon” Steve Blackman celebrates his 56th birthday today.
Blackman originally wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation as a so called ‘Jobber to the Stars’ in 1988 & 1989, doing jobs on weekly WWF TV shows, as well as WWF House shows.
He was then offered a full-time contract to become an actual WWF Superstar, but unfortunately around that time he contracted malaria and dysentery, which sidelined him for 6 years.
He then returned to the WWF, this time as an actual full-time WWF Superstar, in late 1997, making the save for Vader, thus being introduced as a babyface.
He wrestled regularly on WWF TV Shows & PPVs until the summer of 2001, so he was there for the entire time of the famous Attitude Era, an era in history that can never be duplicated.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE BLACKMAN!
• The Undertaker Comments On Making Kids Cry Early In His Career
During a recent edition of WWE Untold on the WWE Network, The Undertaker talked about his arrival in the WWF and Kane’s debut.
Below are the highlights:
On making kids cry when he first arrived in the WWF in 1990:
“Obviously when I first came in, I was this scary monster that everyone was terrified of. I remember vividly making my entrance and looking and seeing kids crying. I think everybody has a little bit of darkness in them anyway, and I think I tapped in on that and it kind of became cool to have that dark element to your personality.”
On Kane’s WWF debut:
“Here you have this guy. Vince told him, ‘If you want to be successful in this business, you have to have a little bit of a$$hole in you’.
What that meant was you have to be able to go out there and sometimes you have to do the right thing for yourself because it’s the right thing for the company.
By the time that Kane came along, I think he had realised that and he knew that it was his last chance.”
