• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (April 4, 2018) – WWF Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2018, we lost Old School WWF Veteran “Luscious Johnny V” Johnny Valiant (Real name: John Sullivan) at the age of 71.
Johnny Valiant won several Tag Team Championships as a part of The Valiant Brothers, with his kayfabe/storyline brothers “Boogie Woogie Man” Jimmy Valiant and Jerry Valiant.
Most Old School 80s fans remember Johnny V as a manager for the World Wrestling Federation Tag Team ‘The Dream Team’ (Brutus Beefcake, Greg Valentine & Dino Bravo), and also briefly for Demolition, before Mr. Fuji took over.
In 1996, he was inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame by The British Bulldog & Owen Hart.

• WrestleMania 36 Could Result In Major Changes On Future WWE Programming
During a recent interview with TV Guide, WWE Hall of Famer Triple H talked about this weekend’s WrestleMania 36 PPV and how WWE is doing things differently at this year’s Show of Shows, and how that might affect future WWE programming.
Below is what The Game said:
“So there are some matches and some components and things that will take place this year like we’ve never done before.
Bray Wyatt and John Cena will have a Firefly Fun House match, which will be different from anything we’ve ever done in the WWE.
The Undertaker and AJ Styles will have a Boneyard match, and they will be doing that from an off-site location.
So the opportunity to do things differently, shoot them differently, present them differently. Hopefully, we’ll open up this WrestleMania in ways that people have never seen before and give them an opportunity to be entertained in ways they never have before.
This moment in time is changing everything, and I think there are opportunities that we will see and explore now that will become the new norm.
So all of those things, whether it’s multiple nights, whether it’s off-site shoots or different things like that, I think those will all be opportunities that we can explore in the future and we’ll see.
If they’re successful here, they might be successful in the future as well.”
