• Vince McMahon Had To Surrender Company Property After WWE Retirement

On July 22, 2022, wrestling fans were left shocked when Vince McMahon announced his retirement from all roles in WWE.

He was forced to retire from the company due to the hush money scandal and $exual misconduct allegations.

During an interview on The Bubba Army show, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle revealed that Vince was made to give back all company property after his departure:

“You know I honestly thought Vince was still working behind the scenes, he’s not, he’s gone.

They actually made him give back his company cellphone, I have no way of getting in touch with him.”

There have been discussions about celebrating Vince McMahon’s career at WrestleMania 39 in April 2023, as a proper farewell. A WWE Hall Of Fame induction has been discussed as well.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 13, 2018) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away

On this day in 2018, we lost the legendary Old School Wrestling Legend Don Leo Jonathan (Real name: Don Heaton) at the age of 87.

Don Leo Jonathan wrestled for several territories in Canada and the United States during the 40s, 50s, 60s & 70s, before he retired in 1980.

In his final match, he teamed up with Andre the Giant & Roddy Piper to defeat The Sheepherders (The Bushwhackers in WWF) & Buddy Rose.

Standing at 6’6 and weighing over 300 lbs, Jonathan was a former 2 time NWA Canadian Heavyweight Champion, a former 2 time NWA Texas Heavyweight Champion and a former NWA Canadian Tag Team Champion.

In 1973 and 1974, Don Leo Jonathan also wrestled for Vince McMahon Sr.’s World Wide Wrestling Federation, which a few years later was renamed to ‘World Wrestling Federation’.

He was inducted into multiple Hall of Fames, including Stampede Wrestling Hall of Fame and the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame, but has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which – if it happens – will be as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.

† REST IN PEACE DON LEO JONATHAN

April 29, 1931 – October 13, 2018
