• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 18, 1993) – Old School WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1993, we lost Old School WWF Legend “The Texas Tornado” Kerry Von Erich (Real name: Kerry Adkisson) at the young age of 33 due to committing suicide with a single gunshot to the heart.
After a great career in his father’s promotion World Class Championship Wrestling, Kerry joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1990 as “The Texas Tornado” and became the Intercontinental Champion after only a few months with the company.
Prior to his WWF run (1990-1992), Kerry Von Erich’s biggest accomplishment was winning the NWA World Heavyweight Championship from “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair in front of over 45,000 fans at Texas Stadium in 1984.
In 2009, he, his father & his brothers were all inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, but unfortunately his brother Kevin Von Erich was the last one of them, who was still alive and there to accept the award.
† REST IN PEACE TEXAS TORNADO

• Vickie Guerrero Reveals A Major Regret She Has From The Day Eddie Guerrero Died
During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho podcast, Vickie Guerrero talked about the passing of her late husband, WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero and revealed a major regret she has from the day Eddie died.
Below is what Vickie said:
“On the morning that he passed away, I got a phone call at 5:30 in the morning and it was Eddie.
Usually, he would just call and wait for me to call him back whenever I would wake up. And for some reason, I heard it and I was like, ‘no, I’ll just call him back later when I wake up.’
I hate myself every day because if I answered it, I would have heard from him. And that’s something you just never know.
You never know what God has in store for you that day.”
