Paul Boesch used to be the proud promoter of the NWA territory “Houston Wrestling” between 1967 and 1987.
He has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is most likely going to happen as part of the annual ‘Legacy Wing’ inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE!

• Triple H & Stephanie McMahon’s Daughter Training To Become A Wrestler
During a recent appearance on FS1’s First Things First, Stephanie McMahon talked about WWE’s partnership with FOX, highlights from her in-ring career & more.
Below are the highlights:
On WWE’s partnership with FOX:
“Words really can’t describe how excited we are. This is a partnership that I think has been many, many years in the making, if not destined to be. FOX is the best at live television, the best at sports, the best at events, and I like to think that WWE is the same. So, we’re, I think, a perfect match. A perfect tag team, if you will.”
On what people (who have never watched WWE before) can expect from SmackDown on FOX:
“They’re going to see something that they’ve never seen before. It truly is a spectacle and it is the best combination of sports and entertainment. So, you break down the storytelling piece – it’s no different than anything else that’s out there. It’s protagonist vs. antagonist, with conflict resolution. The only difference is our conflicts are settled inside a 20×20 foot ring, with some of the greatest live action that you can see, in any sport or entertainment property.”
On the highlights from her in-ring career:
“Oh my goodness. Well, I did have to wrestle my father in what may be the first-ever father – daughter match, six days before my actual wedding. So that’s an interesting moment. My mom was so mad at my dad. She said, ‘If you give her a black eye, if she gets a black eye before her wedding, I’m going to kill you.’ So that was a very interesting moment.
But actually it was only about two years ago that I did wrestle ‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey. So it was after the Attitude Era, it was after I had married and had three daughters, and I had the chance to wrestle Ronda in her first-ever match in WWE, and that was a huge moment, with my husband Triple H as my tag team partner, against Kurt Angle and Ronda. And Kurt’s an Olympic gold medalist, and Ronda’s an Olympic medalist as well. So, I had my work cut out for me. I lost, yeah.”
On if she would encourage her daughters to wrestle:
“My oldest daughter (Aurora Rose – age 13) has already started training. And I would encourage them to follow their passion, you know, whatever they believe in, as long as they work hard at it. I believe in a strong work ethic and I believe they can do anything in the world they wanna do, but they’re gonna have to believe in themselves and work hard.”
