• Triple H Is No Longer “Untouchable” Backstage In WWE
According to the Wrestling Observer, Triple H’s backstage power in WWE has been affected in a negative way due to NXT losing the Wednesday Night War against AEW Dynamite.
Triple H is being held responsible for failing to stop AEW’s rise on Wednesday nights, despite having full control over the NXT product.
Also, some WWE Officials are trying to play backstage politics to hurt Triple H’s status, as some of them feel Triple H would fire them if he ever becomes in charge after Vince McMahon:
“It’s largely based on what was said to be a new company directive for the product and a behind-the-scenes power struggle involving those who fear for their positions if and when [Paul] Levesque takes over and thus want to undermine him, and those who support Levesque.
Levesque had been thought to be untouchable, but in failing to stop AEW’s rise, and eventually losing the war, it gave both his detractors and those who felt he would replace them the obvious ammunition.”

• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW Veteran nWo Sting (Real name: Jeff Farmer) turns 59 today.
When he first joined WCW in 1993, he was called ‘Lightning’, one half of the Tag Team ‘Thunder and Lightning’, but in 1995 he was repackaged as Gulf War Veteran ‘Cobra’.
Jeff’s most famous gimmick was born at the ‘WCW Fall Brawl 1996’ PPV, when he portrayed Sting, but it was revealed that he was a bogus Sting, hired by the nWo to make it look like the real Sting (Steve Borden) had attacked Luger in the parking lot a few days earlier.
From that day forward, the fake Sting became a regular member of the New World Order faction on WCW TV, before jumping ship to WCW’s Japanese partner promotion NJPW, where he wrestled as a member of nWo Japan.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY nWo STING!
