• WWF Attitude Era Celebrity Celebrates His Birthday
WWF Attitude Era Celebrity “Iron” Mike Tyson turns 53 today.
In 1998, he was a part of the ‘Stone Cold vs. DX’ feud, including appearances at the Royal Rumble & WrestleMania XIV, a storyline that is considered to be partially responsible for the WWF breaking WCW’s 84 week Monday night TV-rating winning streak.
In 2012, Mike Tyson was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by DX members Shawn Michaels & Triple H.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE TYSON!
• Update On Cody Rhodes Following Unprotected Chair Shot To The Head, Chair Was Actually Gimmicked
At last night’s AEW Fyter Fest event, Cody Rhodes wrestled Darby Allin to a 20 minute time limit draw.
After the match, Shawn Spears (f.k.a Tye Dillinger in WWE) came to the ring and hit Cody in the head with a Steel Chair!
This was an unprotected chair shot to the head and Cody was busted open.
You can watch it below:
During media interviews after the show, AEW President Tony Khan said the following about this:
“We called a doctor immediately. Obviously really regrettable what happened. I don’t know if this is the time to go into detail about what happened but we had taken precautions in this situation and that specific situation. A doctor was available and Cody does not have a concussion and had staples and we’re all very grateful for that.”

Dave Meltzer said the following about this on Wrestling Observer Radio:
“I was kinda warned about it before the show and it was completely gimmicked and it was supposed to be safe, but I guess somehow the unsafe part cracked the back of his head bloodied him up.
It wrapped around, it was like a wrap around part and that’s what cut him up.”
