• WWE Legend Claims He Was Supposed To Defeat Brock Lesnar At WrestleMania

On an episode of his weekly podcast, WWF Attitude Era Legend Kurt Angle claimed that he was originally supposed to defeat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XIX in 2003.

Here’s what the 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist said:

“I was next in line to have a good title reign. And they didn’t want me to beat Brock at Survivor Series because I was going to wrestle Brock at WrestleMania 19.

5 Months later, and during that time, I was supposed to beat Brock, but I broke my neck beforehand. So I had to do the job for Brock and give him the title because I had to have surgery.

So they didn’t want me to beat Brock two times in a row. So Big Show beat Brock Lesnar, then I beat Big Show. That way, I didn’t beat Brock twice.”

Brock Lesnar defeated Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship in the main event of the WWE WrestleMania XIX pay-per-view on March 30th 2003 at the Safeco Field in Seattle, Washington in front of 54,097 fans.

• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WCW Veteran Nick Dinsmore celebrates his 47th birthday today.

He wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling promotion in 1998 and 1999, but was mainly used as a ‘Jobber To The Stars’.

Most wrestling fans nowadays will only remember him as the mentally disabled (storyline wise) nephew of RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff, Eugene, which he became later on.

As Eugene, he had a pretty good mid-card run in the WWE between 2004 and 2007.

He also portrayed the famous ‘Doink The Clown’ character on two occasions, first as a participant in the APA Bar Room Brawl at the WWE Vengeance 2003 PPV, and then in a match against Chris Benoit on SmackDown a few days later.
