• Update On If The US Title Will Be Defended At WrestleMania 38
Finn Balor recently defeated Damian Priest to win the United States Championship.
After the loss, Priest turned heel and attacked Balor.
Both men faced off in a non-title match earlier this month, where Priest defeated Balor (due to interference from Austin Theory).
When WWE announced that both Balor & Priest will compete in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal on this Friday’s WrestleMania SmackDown, many fans were disappointed that these two men won’t face off at WrestleMania 38.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Balor vs. Priest for the United States Championship is still expected to take place at the Show Of Shows this weekend.
WWE could make this match official on tonight’s WrestleMania RAW. We’ll keep you updated.

• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 64th birthday of Old School WWF Legend Mr. Perfect (Real name: Curt Hennig).
After winning the AWA World Heavyweight Championship in 1987, Curt joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1988, where he became known as Mr. Perfect.
After a successful run with the WWF until 1993 and on-off non-wrestling appearances in 1994, 1995 & 1996, Hennig joined the rival promotion, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1997, wrestled for them till 2000, before he returned home to the WWF in early 2002.
Curt was the son of Old School AWA Legend Larry “The Axe” Hennig and the father of WWE PG-era wrestler Curtis Axel.
The former Intercontinental Champion passed away in 2003 at the young age of 44, but he keeps on living in the hearts of the Old School WWF/WCW fans.
In 2007, he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his old friend, baseball legend Wade Boggs.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
