• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (September 2, 1985) – Old School NWA Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 1985, we lost Old School NWA Veteran Jay Youngblood (Real name: Steven Romero) at the young age of 30 due to kidney failure, followed by a series of heart attacks.
He wrestled for various territories, but is most famous for teaming up with Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat in Jim Crockett Promotions during the early 80s.
Their biggest moment as a team came at a big televised special event called ‘NWA Final Conflict’ on March 12, 1983 in Greensboro, North Carolina, when they defeated the team of Sgt. Slaughter & Don Kernodle in a Steel Cage match, to become the new NWA World Tag Team Champions.
REST IN PEACE JAY YOUNGBLOOD!

• Update On WWE Discussing About New Paul Heyman Guys
As we previously reported, Brock Lesnar won’t be appearing on WWE programming for the rest of 2018 as he’ll be preparing for his UFC Heavyweight Title fight against Daniel Cormier.
This means that Paul Heyman won’t have any client to work with and he will be working backstage until he finds a new one.
Earlier this week, it was noted on the Fired Up podcast that the idea of pairing Kevin Owens with Heyman was pitched backstage. However, WWE still hasn’t chosen anyone to work with Heyman yet.
The Fired Up podcast has now noted that there have been discussions of having Heyman be the advocate of some other stars like Samoa Joe, Bobby Lashley or RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey.
We will keep you updated as we find more on WWE’s plans for Paul Heyman.
