• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Legendary Old School Wrestling Personality Eric Bischoff celebrates his 65th birthday today.
After being an announcer for the AWA and WCW, he moved up the ladder and became the President of Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling promotion, as well as the on-screen manager of the most famous faction in Professional Wrestling history: The New World Order (nWo).
The last time we saw him in a major role on TV, was for TNA iMPACT Wrestling from 2010 to 2012. He has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, but it’s obviously just a question of “when” and not “if”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC BISCHOFF!
• WWE Could Be Planning Major Debut During Rey Mysterio’s Retirement Ceremony On RAW Next Week
After Rey Mysterio was injured by Seth Rollins on RAW a few weeks ago, WWE announced that he’ll appear on the red brand next week to have a retirement ceremony, which will be hosted by Seth Rollins.

Rollins hosting the ceremony obviously gives away the idea that Mysterio isn’t actually retiring, but he’s returning to continue his feud with The Monday Night Messiah.
An interesting thing on RAW last night was that Rollins mentioned Rey’s son, Dominick Mysterio, while addressing him.
PWInsider noted the following about it:
“Since they mentioned Dominick Mysterio it will be interesting to see if he shows up to defend his father because we know he’s been on WWE’s radar or in their orbit so to speak.”
WrestlingNewsco also reported that Dominick is set for an official WWE debut this year. He already completed his training, and also spent a few weeks on TV with his father last year.
Dominick recently deleted his private Facebook account, and his friends have been in the dark about his wrestling career. This could be a hint that WWE wants to keep his debut a secret, and it could be coming soon.
