– Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Pro Wrestling Legend Jerry “The King” Lawler turns 68 today. Lawler started his long illustrious career in 1970 and still occasionally wrestles today.
During all those years he won countless championships, including several World titles (AWA, CWA/USWA, WCCW, …), but never won one in the World Wrestling Federation.
In 2007 The King was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his friend, Star Trek actor William Shatner.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JERRY LAWLER!
– Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF/E Legend JBL (Real name: John Layfield) turns 51 today.
He debuted for the World Wrestling Federation during its New Generation Era in January 1996 as Justin “Hawk” Bradshaw, managed by Uncle Zebekiah (aka Zeb Colter/Dutch Mantell) but just a year later was known as ‘Blackjack Bradshaw’ when he formed a Tag Team with Barry Windham, called The New Blackjacks.
After that Tag Team disbanded, he continued to wrestle as just ‘Bradshaw’ and soon ended up forming The Acolytes with “Faarooq” Ron Simmons, later also known as The A.P.A., a cigar smoking & beer drinking Tag Team that fit perfectly into the WWF Attitude Era.
In 2004 during the WWE Ruthless Aggression Era, Bradshaw turned heel and became known as “JBL” John Bradshaw Layfield, an evil millionaire, who became WWE Champion for almost a year and at one point even had his own stable “The Cabinet”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JBL!
– Former Champion’s Injury As Serious As Believed, Expected Back In Time For WrestleMania 34
During his NXT Championship match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames, Drew McIntyre tore his bicep and Pro Wrestling Sheet is now reporting that his injury is as serious as believed and he will be out of action for months.
However, he’s still expected to return in-time for WrestleMania 34, which means there’s a possibility he works the NXT TakeOver event during WrestleMania 34 weekend (if he doesn’t get called up to the WWE main roster).
Unfortunately I did suffer an injury during my title defense at TakeOver. I’ve dealt with setbacks before. The reality is, I always come back better…There's a scary thought for whomever is NXT champion come 2018… #TickTock
