• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 104th birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend Gorgeous George (Real name: George Wagner).
During the 40s & 50s, the overly flamboyant and charismatic Gorgeous George was far ahead of its time, which is why still to this day, professional wrestlers from all around the world can be seen copying certain elements of the character.
In 2010, he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his old friend The Destroyer (Dick Beyer).
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † R.I.P.!
March 24, 1915 – December 26, 1963
• UFC Champion Wants To Interfere At WrestleMania 35 Due To Brock Lesnar
During a recent interview with ESPN, UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier was asked about his next opponent and below is what DC said:
“I don’t have a fight exactly scheduled yet, but I got my eyes on Brock Lesnar. I might go to WWE’s WrestleMania and I may go cost him his Title over there, so he can hurry up and get to the UFC, so I can beat him here.”
UFC President Dana White previously noted that he hopes to hear from Brock Lesnar this Summer:
“Brock Lesnar is doing his thing with WWE. One of the things about Brock Lesnar is, when that guy is ready to fight, he is not shy. He will call me and he will let me know. To be honest with you, I’m hoping to hear from that guy this summer.
I think both guys really want it, Cormier wants it bad. I know Cormier wants it bad, and Brock wants it bad. So, when two fighters want to fight each other as bad as these two do, I think it’s going to happen.”
