• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 72nd birthday of Old School WWF Legend Big John Studd (Real name: John Minton).

Big John Studd wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1982 until 1986 and again from 1988 till 1989.

His biggest accomplishment was winning the second annual Royal Rumble match in 1989, which was not only the first ever 30-man Royal Rumble match, but also the first one that aired LIVE on pay-per-view.

He retired from the sport of professional wrestling later that year, in late 1989.

• Val Venis Reacts To Cody Rhodes Saying He’s Trying To Get Booked By AEW

As we have noted before, WWF Attitude Era Superstar Val Venis expressed his displeasure regarding AEW booking transgender wrestler Nyla Rose to defeat Riho to win the AEW Women’s World Championship.

Val thinks it’s not fair to the real women.

AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes had the following to say regarding Val’s comments:

“I think it’s disappointing if you’re perhaps someone who grew up liking Val Venis, you know. I don’t know. He’s kinda like the Disco Inferno of WWE.

I don’t know if anyone knows who Val Venis is anymore. It’s disappointing because I don’t think he actually means the terrible things he puts in writing.

I think he’s just trying to get a booking. We’re not booking Val Venis and you’re not getting booked anywhere near us.

When you hit the ball back you’re giving him oxygen and I’m not giving Val Venis any oxygen about Nyla Rose.

Nyla Rose won the AEW Women’s Championship because she was the best woman in AEW and that’s just it. So, yeah, I think we should all just stop hitting the ball back to these people.

It’s 2020, everyone should love everybody, you know what I’m saying? In some capacity — I know it sounds super hippie of me, but it’s just how I feel today.”

Venis had the following to say about these comments from Cody:

“WOW! Just WOW!

Ive actually got to go into WORK at the DISPENSARY now to SERVE human kind the very best MEDICINE god put on this planet. But make no mistake about it, Codys delusions have earned and deserve a FACT BASED RESPONSE. Stay tuned humanoids!”
