• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday

Old School NWA/WWF/WCW Legend “The Enforcer” Arn Anderson (Real name: Marty Lunde) celebrates his 62nd birthday today.

Arn became a huge star in NWA Jim Crockett Promotions, where he was a founding member of one of the greatest factions in professional wrestling history, The Four Horsemen.

When Ted Turner bought the promotion, him and fellow Horseman Tully Blanchard left and joined the World Wrestling Federation, where they were known as The Brain Busters.

Arn returned to the NWA promotion, now renamed World Championship Wrestling, in December 1989 and it wasn’t long before he reformed The Four Horsemen again.

In 2012, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by former rival, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARN ANDERSON!

• The Undertaker Says He’ll Continue His WWE Career As The ‘American Badass’ If He Returns

While speaking to Barstool Sports, The Undertaker revealed why he brought back the American Badass character this year, and what he plans to do with it next.

Below is what he said:

“No, once I left the American Badass, I think everyone was really content with the hybrid version of The Undertaker. My style had changed where I kept a lot of the elements of my in-ring work kind of geared to that American Badass character then brought the origins and the mystique of The Undertaker was kind of that outward look.

It didn’t come up until this year and it just kind of dawned on me with the type of promos that AJ was cutting, there’s really no way that I can bring the original Undertaker to this.

It’s become too personal, crossed too many lines, you’re going to have to get the American Badass all grown up and he’s still got that evil side to him. It’s going to be a much more personal approach to delivering that match. So that’s kind of how we ended up American Badass 2.0 if you will.

It was fun, at that point I hadn’t made the decision of whether I was gonna work or what I was going to do post this. It really felt good and I was like thinking to myself ‘I gotta run here if I want it’ and it was cool. We were out as they were setting up, doing the lighting and everything, I was taking that bike up and down the road. People in the neighborhood, their lights were coming on and I was like, this is fun, it was. Regardless of what I do on camera moving forward, I’m sure that’s the persona that I will continue to move forward.”
