• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran Pat Tanaka (Real name: Patrick Tanaka) celebrates his 55th birthday today.
After years in the AWA, Tanaka joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1990 as one half of Mr. Fuji’s Tag Team ‘The Orient Express’.
When his team partner Akio Sato left in late 1990, Tanaka’s old AWA team partner Paul Diamond replaced him, going by the name of Kato, but was wearing a mask to keep the asian gimmick intact.
Fun Fact: While wrestling for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling during the mid-90s, they gave Tanaka an entrance theme song, that eventually ended up becoming Bill Goldberg’s – now legendary – theme song.
• Top WWE Star Returning Soon – Possible Role For SummerSlam 2018
Former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose was backstage at last week’s RAW and is expected to be cleared to return to in-ring action soon, according to the Dirty Sheets.
There were reports that the Intercontinental Championship match for SummerSlam 2018 could be turned into a multi-man match by involving the likes of Finn Balor & Drew McIntyre in the match as well, but it looks like it will stay a one-on-one match between Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins.
Current plan is for McIntyre to be in Ziggler’s corner and Ambrose to be in Rollins’ corner for this Intercontinental Championship bout at SummerSlam 2018.
Ambrose has been out of action since December 2017 due to a triceps injury.
