• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 84th birthday of Old School WWWF Legend Haystacks Calhoun (Real name: William Calhoun).
With weighing 640 lbs when he was at his heaviest, Haystacks Calhoun is in the top 10 list of the heaviest professional wrestlers of all time.
He’s ranked at #9 behind Martin Levy, Maximum Capacity, Hornswaggliní Hillbilly, Giant Haystacks, Yokozuna, The McGuire Twins & Happy Humphrey, who are the only wrestlers who at one point were even heavier than him.
Haystacks Calhoun passed away in 1989 but was inducted into the Legacy Wing of the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & R.I.P.!
• Top NXT Star Injured, Out Of Action After Undergoing Surgery
According to the Wrestling Observer, former NXT Champion Aleister Black got injured at Saturday’s NXT Live Event in Las Vegas after being crotched by current NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa during their match at the event.
Black underwent surgery and will be out of action. Word going on is that Black is said to be doing fine, but it was described as a scary situation.
Black was scheduled to be a part of the Triple Threat match for the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV during the SummerSlam 2018 weekend (Tommaso Ciampa (c) vs. Aleister Black vs. Johnny Gargano).
Wrestling Observer is now reporting that Black could miss NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV. The event is two weeks away and Black could indeed miss the event given how WWE doesn’t take any risks with their wrestlers regarding injuries.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this situation.
