• Old School NWA Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 65th birthday of Old School NWA Veteran Jay Youngblood (Real name: Steven Romero).
Jay Youngblood wrestled for various territories, but is most famous for teaming up with Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat in Jim Crockett Promotions during the early 80s.
Their biggest moment as a tag team came at a big televised special event called ‘NWA Final Conflict’ on March 12, 1983 in Greensboro, North Carolina, when they defeated the team of Sgt. Slaughter & Don Kernodle in a Steel Cage match, to become the new NWA World Tag Team Champions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE

• “WrestleMania 36 match was booked with the thought that it could be Undertaker’s last” – Triple H
During a recent interview with the New York Post, “The Game” Triple H was asked if Undertaker could end his career in a match such as the Boneyard Match from WrestleMania 36, which didn’t take place in front of fans in attendance.
Below is what the WWE Hall of Famer said:
“I don’t know. It’s hard for me to say when somebody like him puts it down because I feel like the dragon is always in front of him one way or another and he’s always gonna look to do it. I think it would be hard for him to end on some kind of theatrical piece like that because of what you said, the emotionality of it.
We finished the last shot and then we’re like, “Alright, I think we got some good stuff let’s go home.” There weren’t 80,000 or 100,000 people standing up going crazy and you getting to stand on the top of that stage and get to have that one last moment. It’s not the closure you’re looking for.
Then again, if he decided to never come back or his health gets worse or he gets injured or something, this could be the last one. So, when I got involved in it, I was hell-bent on making sure for Mark this thing’s got to be everything it could be. It can’t fall apart on our end.”
