• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 27, 2014) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2014, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran Billy Robinson at the age of 75 due to natural causes.
The British ‘catch wrestling’ specialist had a great career in the United States, Canada, Europe & Japan.
In 1982, he wrestled WWWF World Heavyweight Champion Bob Backlund to a 60-minutes time limit draw.
Billy Robinson has been inducted into several smaller Pro Wrestling Halls of Fame, but has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is most likely going to happen as part of the annual ‘Legacy Wing’ inductions.
† REST IN PEACE BILLY ROBINSON!
September 18, 1938 – March 3, 2014

• WrestleMania 36 Plan For “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt Revealed
The Fiend is now scheduled to face 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena at WrestleMania 36 (as Goldberg will be defending the Universal Championship against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 36 in the co-main event).
There’s speculation that Cena will announce his entry into the Elimination Chamber match (to crown the #1 contender for the Universal Championship) this Friday on SmackDown, and The Fiend might enter that match as well (since he’d like to go after the Universal Title again).
So the Cena-Fiend program could begin at Elimination Chamber 2020 pay-per-view.
