Below are the top pro-wrestling (WWE & AEW) news stories of the day:

• Top SmackDown Star Loved Billy & Chuck

During a recent interview with Bleacher Report, SmackDown Superstar Xavier Woods said that he always loved Tag Team Wrestling, even as a kid, and revealed that the tag team Billy & Chuck (Billy Gunn & Chuck Palumbo) inspired and entertained him.

Here’s what the 2021 King of the Ring had to say:

“It’s been really cool, obviously because I haven’t had the chance to have a singles run in the company yet and the focus has always been on tag team wrestling. Even when I was a kid, I was just obsessed with it. Billy and Chuck were my favorite tag team. I freaking loved them.

People always laugh when I say that, but when you go back and think about it, that was a situation where we had a team that hit the scene and it wasn’t necessarily, ‘Oh, these guys are world-beaters and they’re going to be champions.’

They evolved into one of the most entertaining teams we could see and they had a full main event segment with them getting married as partners with a reveal. With Eric Bischoff.

It’s hard for tag teams to get that position where they not only get to have cool matches but where they get to be in the middle of the most important stuff on the show.”

Billy and Chuck first teamed up towards the end of the invasion storyline in the fall of 2001 and they won the WWF/WWE Tag Team Championship two times, before splitting up in October 2002, after Billy Gunn had a shoulder injury during a match.

• Charlie Haas Compares Divorce From Former WWE Diva To The Death Of His Brother

WWE Ruthless Aggression Era Superstar Charlie Haas recently spoke with Chris Van Vliet about his professional wrestling career and his private life’s blows of fate.

He went as far as comparing his 2020 divorce from former WWE/TNA Diva Jackie Gayda to the 2001 death of his brother and Pre-WWE indy tag team partner Russ Haas.

Here’s what Charlie had to say about his brother passing away 20 years ago:

“It destroyed me. It was like the divorce from Jackie, they are your best friends. You grew up with them. He’s your little brother, then you find him dead and it’s like, man, is this really happening?

It was tough, it really was. But then you have to call your mom and dad and tell them that you found your brother dead. That’s not good. I didn’t think I was going to be able to get out of that. I didn’t know how to survive that, and I didn’t know what WWE would do.

They signed the Haas brothers, not Charlie Haas. But thank God that Jim Ross saw that we could still do this with Charlie and Shelton (Benjamin). Arn Anderson said, ‘Let me take Charlie and Shelton and let me see what I can do with them.’

We basically just traveled with Arn. He put us in the ring prior to the house show matches and in the dark matches, and he taught us everything he knew.

His heart was into it as much as ours was, and that was when I knew that someone really cared. He really put everything into us.

Shelton was a guy who I found as a partner just like my brother, he is my brother, and it worked. Shelton had the same goal as I did, and I’m just very lucky.”

• Former WWE Champion Says He’s In The Best Shape Of His Life Right Now (Photo)

Former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio (age 44), who recently claimed that he still wants to return to WWE, took to Twitter to claim that he’s in the best shape of his entire life right now.

Here’s the translation of what he tweeted in his 2 Spanish Tweets:

“I am and I feel in the best physical condition of my life. For those who want to make firewood from the ‘fallen tree’, I want you to know that this tree is solid and nothing and no one will be able to knock it down.

I want to thank my family, my fans, Alberto Sevilla, who helped me to be in this physical condition, my friend Akbar Farat and the Lucha Libre Online family. Thanks to everyone who believed in me.

Thanks to those who doubted me and made me stronger. I am standing here and alive. We will continue to give 100%.”

Alberto Del Rio wrestled for WWE from 2010 to 2014 and again from 2015 till 2016.

He won the the WWE Championship (twice), the World Heavyweight Championship (twice) and the United States Championship (twice), as well as being the winner of the 2011 Royal Rumble match.

• Jim Cornette Claims Roddy Piper Would Have Loved AEW Wrestler

On the latest episode of his weekly Drive-Thru podcast, legendary NWA/WCW/WWF Manager Jim Cornette claimed that WWF Legend ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper would have loved current AEW Superstar MJF if Roddy was still alive.

Here’s what Cornette said:

“I do think Piper would have loved him. I think he would say, ‘here is a guy who can talk, knows how to push people’s buttons and who likes to get heat’.

If Piper saw his matches, especially the one with Darby Allin, I think he’d have been quite impressed with that.

So I have to think Roddy would be kind of relieved that somebody has come along like that who still takes the business and what they are doing in it fairly seriously. And can go out and not in the same style as Roddy, but in the same vein, rile people up on the microphone as Roddy did 40 years ago.

I definitely believe he’d approve of MJF whole-heartedly.”

Roddy Piper started wrestling in the early 70s and retired in 2011, before he eventually passed away in his sleep on July 31, 2015 due to a cardiopulmonary arrest caused by hypertension and a pulmonary embolism.
