• Old School Wrestling Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Veteran Héctor Guerrero (Full name: Héctor Manuel Guerrero Llanes) celebrates his 65th birthday today.
Héctor is the brother of the late WCW/WWF Legend “Latino Heat” Eddie Guerrero, as well as the brother of “Chavo Classic” Chavo Guerrero Sr. and the uncle of WCW/WWE Veteran Chavo Guerrero Jr.!
After working for NWA Jim Crockett Promotions under a mask as Lazer-Tron, as well as wrestling for various territories under his real name, he made his World Wrestling Federation debut during the ‘WWF Survivor Series 1990’ PPV, wearing a turkey costume and being called “The Gobbledy Gooker”, a character that is always at least among the TOP 3 on every single list of the worst gimmicks in pro wrestling history.
The last we heard about him, was his spanish color commentary on TNA Total Nonstop Action TV between 2007 and 2015.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HECTOR GUERRERO!
• Triple H Told NXT Wrestlers To Ignore Kenny Omega’s Comments
As we have noted before, AEW Executive Vice President Kenny Omega ripped NXT and its wrestlers (tap here to know more).
According to Brad Shepard, WWE Hall of Famer Triple H told NXT wrestlers to ignore Omega’s comments:
“According to a source in WWE, Triple H and NXT Head Coach Matt Bloom have told talent to not respond to Kenny Omega (this is after a couple of talents took shots back, such as Dominik Dijakovic). The thought behind that is that they’ll see who the better brand is come October.”
During a recent interview with Sporting News, Triple H was asked about Omega’s comments and below is what “The Game” said:
“It doesn’t matter to me. I’m not sure if you’re aware of social media and that landscape. It’s a fairly negative place (laughs). If you’re going to get thin-skinned and read into stuff and get angry about stuff that people say, it’s gonna be a rough life.
There’s a statement about opinions over the years I’ve heard. Everybody it entitled to their opinion. Everybody is entitled to put an executive tag on the front of their name and think that’s a cool thing. Whatever. It’s all good.
Bring your best show. If that’s how you want to look at it, bring your best show. I’ll bring my best show. We’re all good and the winners are the fans and they’ll choose what they want to watch and how. It doesn’t matter to me. It really doesn’t and it’s not my interest and my interest is the best show possible.
I’m going to take the talent roster that we have, I’m going to take the in-ring product that NXT has that I would put up against anything in the world, bar none, and I’m going to put on the best show possible every single week for two hours.
My competition is everything else out, but the truth is for our fans, I just want to deliver the best product that I can to them. That’s as far as it goes.”
