• Old School ECW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School ECW Veteran Roadkill (Real name: Michael DePoli) celebrates his 43rd birthday today.
Roadkill wrestled for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling promotion from 1996 till its demise in 2001 and then went on to wrestle for the WWE in 2005 and from 2006 till 2008, mainly on ‘ECW on ScyFy’ as well for WWE’s developmental promotion’s OVW Ohio Valley Wrestling.
For most of his ECW run he was put in a Tag Team with Danny Doring and together they became the ECW World Tag Team Champions on December 3, 2000 by defeating the Full Blooded Italians.
Still to this day they are the last ever ECW Tag Team Champions, considering that – as opposed to the ECW World Title – the Tag belts were not brought back for WWE’s 2006-2010 version of ECW (on ScyFy).
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROADKILL!
• Triple H Says Vince McMahon Will Outlive All Of Us, Says There Is No Heir Apparent
During a recent conference call, WWE Hall of Famer Triple H was asked if there are plans on who will take over WWE if Vince McMahon isn’t able to do what he’s been doing for decades any longer.
Below is what Triple H said:
“I mean look, there are in any company of this size and with everything we do you have to have succession plans and you have to have next level of where you want to go, you know.
There is no heir-apparent first of all because Vince is not stepping away. He’ll probably outlive all of us knowing that his mom’s in her late-90’s and still running around so he’s got the genes. He’ll probably outlive all of us, but there are succession plans for everything.
Plans change on the regular because this company changes on the regular in five years it’ll be a totally different place than it was five years ago, so um, I think there’s a lot of factors involved in that the how, where, what happens, but yeah, as you look at who takes what and this and that it’s a constantly evolving thing, but all of us — Vince, myself, Steph — everybody in this company will look at well, if things shift then who takes whose place and who does what?
It’s no different for me and NXT and that whole process. So you’re constantly looking people that can step up and take things off your plate so you can advance to somethings different as well.”
