• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WCW Veteran Shark Boy (Real name: Dean Matthew Roll) celebrates his 43rd birthday today.

What? Isn’t Shark Boy a TNA Original? Well, he’s no doubt much more remembered for his TNA career as an undercard comedy act, but the first major promotion he worked for on TV was WCW in 2000.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHARK BOY!

• Hall of Famer Says Ronda Rousey In WWE Would Be As Big As Mike Tyson In WWF

During an interview with TMZ Sports, WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page had the following to say regarding Ronda Rousey possibly coming to WWE:

“Rousey will get that same kind of attention like when Mike Tyson came in, and they did a thing with Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels, which was money. It really helped balance the Monday Night War, and eventually gave WWF the edge.

I think Rousey coming in is pure money and I think that Charlotte is so good at what she does. My first match with Bill Goldberg, it was for the World Title in 1998, Bill had only been wrestling a year. Well, we stole the show. Because I was going to make Bill look as good as he was, and he was great. He had that incredible charisma, personality, and that ‘it’ factor, Rousey has that same thing. I think if it’s built like that, it could be really great.”

The Undertaker and Ethan Carter III (EC 3) were being considered as the most likely surprise entrants in the Royal Rumble match. However, with EC 3 joining NXT last night at TakeOver, it looks like he won’t be appearing in the Royal Rumble match.

With that being said, The Undertaker is in Philadelphia for tonight’s Royal Rumble PPV and an angle with him is expected on tonight’s PPV.
