• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran Nailz (Real name: Kevin Wacholz) turns 60 today.
He’s one of the very few Old School Wrestlers, whom Vince is most likely never going to forgive, after Nailz choked him out during a dispute over a paycheck in late 1992.
Needless to say he was fired on the spot and never mentioned again.
WCW brought him in as ‘The Prisoner’ just a few months later for their Slamboree 1993 PPV, where Wacholz jobbed to Sting in 5 minutes.
If not for his long career (which he didn’t have), at least he gets remembered for having a pretty well sold WWF Hasbro Figure.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAILZ!

• Update On Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley
PWStream provided the following update on Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley match:
Per source: Lesnar vs Lashley has been discussed, however, in the discussions I’ve been told about it wouldn’t be for the title, and it wouldn’t be anytime soon. Most likely to be at a big show like SummerSlam that needs high profile names. #Raw
