• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 19, 2003) – Old School WWF Tag Team Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2003 we lost Old School WWF Tag Team Legend “Road Warrior” Hawk (Real name: Michael Hegstrand) at the age of 46 due to a heart attack.
He spent most of his professional wrestling career teaming with his long-term Tag Team partner & close personal friend “Road Warrior” Animal as ‘The Road Warriors’ (AWA / NWA) aka The Legion of Doom (WWF).
The L.O.D. wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1990 to 1992 and from 1997 till 1998, but had their last match for the company (now renamed WWE) on the May 12, 2003 episode of Monday Night RAW, where they wrestled the WWE World Tag Team Champions Kane & Rob Van Dam in a losing effort.
REST IN PEACE HAWK!

• WWE Has No “End Game” With Major RAW Storyline
As seen in the main event of this week’s RAW, The Dogs Of War (Braun Strowman and RAW Tag Team Champions Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler) stable imploded when they lost to The Shield and Strowman powerslammed Ziggler after the match.
This resulted in McIntyre laying out Strowman with a Claymore Kick.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE creative team is coming up with weekly content for this storyline and there is currently no “end game” for this angle.
This could mean that either Strowman is now going to feud with McIntyre or WWE will continue to book the Dogs of War stable together and portray what happened this week as heels not getting along.
Whatever WWE ends up doing with this feud, one thing is for sure that McIntyre will be heavily protected.
