• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF/WCW Legend Big Daddy Cool “Diesel” Kevin Nash celebrates his 59th birthday today.
Nash started with Ted Turner’s WCW in 1990 as Steel, one half of the Master Blasters, but later adapted even more unsuccessful gimmicks like Oz & Vinnie Vegas, before joining the WWF in 1993 as Shawn Michaels’ bodyguard Diesel.
In 1996 he went back to WCW, this time under his real name Kevin Nash, changing Professional Wrestling’s history by founding the nWo New World Order with Scott Hall & Hulk Hogan.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIESEL!
• WWE Hall of Famer Takes A Shot At The Undertaker Continuing His Wrestling Career Once Again – Predicts Undertaker Will Blow Out His New Hip Replacement
As we noted before, The Undertaker returned to in-ring competition for the third time this year at this Saturday night’s WWE Live Event at Madison Square Garden.
While the majority of the fans were delighted by seeing Taker’s performance, there’s one man who wasn’t so happy by seeing The Undertaker compete again – WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham.
Yes, this isn’t the first time that Graham has been critical of The Undertaker’s decision to continue his wrestling career after getting a hip replacement and since The Undertaker will be wrestling more matches this year, this certainly won’t be the last time you’ll see Graham being critical of ‘The Phenom’ again.
Below is what Graham wrote on Facebook about The Undertaker’s performance at MSG:
WWE at Madison Square Garden
“Well fans, I can promise you that the crowed reaction at the Garden last night, 7/7/2018, was nothing like the crowd reaction in 1977 in the photo below (him and Bruno Sammartino). Sadly, It is time for The Undertaker to call it a career, with all due respect to the man of course. If you go to (video below) like I did, you will see a 30 second clip of The Deadman giving Kevin Owens the Tombstone Piledriver. It looks like he was having trouble holding Owens up. The crowd reaction from what I could see on such a short clip was “polite” to say it the best I can.
The Taker is 53, has been in what, 25 or so manias ? How many years does it take for a man to know that enough is enough ? The answer my friend, is not blowing in the wind, it’s on video. Taker also looked to be limping a bit. I am a man who knows about hips and wrestling. They don’t go together. I predict here and now that if he keeps going he will blow out his new hip replacement. Anyone see this match on the WWE network ? Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the Undertaker and his continued wrestling ?
Some real thoughts please, not, “well it is up to him” stuff, as I already know that. S.B.G.”
Below is the video that Graham was referring to:
What The Undertaker did there is reposition Owens to have a better grip and make sure Owens’ head doesn’t get slammed onto the mat and Taker has been doing this for a few years now.
While Graham did have a valid point when he noted how the crowd reaction was no where near to what it used to be in the good old days, but watch the video below and tell us when was the last time you’ve seen crowds go crazy at ‘live events’ in the current PG era like this?
