• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 15, 1998) – Old School WWF Wrestler Passed Away
On this day in 1998 we lost Old School WWF Wrestler Battle Kat a.k.a Brady Boone (Real name: Dean R. Peters) in a car accident at the young age of 40.
He did jobs on WWF TV for a few years before adapting the gimmick of ‘Battle Kat’, a character based on Battle Cat from the ‘Master of the Universe’ franchise.
When Brady was released from the World Wrestling Federation in November 1990, WWF enhancement talent Bob Bradley took over under the Battle Kat costume.

• WWE Reportedly Planning Something Big For January 2019
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials aren’t worried about the drop in ratings as of late as they believe they’re going to gain their viewers back in January 2019 as they have something big planned.
WWE officials believe the show is going to be better as soon as 2019 begins because of their “big idea”.
This interesting turn of events could begin as soon as the upcoming episode of RAW. WWE announced that Vince McMahon will be making his return to WWE programming on the post-TLC 2018 edition of RAW to “shake things up”.
Below is what WWE posted:
Mr. McMahon returns to Raw to shake things up this Monday night
“One week after Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins placed the blame for Monday Night Raw’s recent decline squarely on the shoulders of “General Manager-Elect” Baron Corbin, WWE Chairman and CEO Mr. McMahon will return to the red brand to shake things up, WWE.com can confirm.
The landmark appearance of The Chairman comes one night after WWE TLC, where Corbin intends to be named the permanent General Manager of Raw following a forfeit victory over the injured Braun Strowman in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match, per the stipulation handed down by Commissioner Stephanie McMahon. However, rumors abound that The Monster Among Men could make an appearance at this Sunday’s WWE TLC event and stop The Lone Wolf from assuming total control of Team Red.
With Mr. McMahon’s return imminent, however, Corbin could have a lot to answer for regardless of his position. How will The Chairman shake up Monday Night Raw, and who will benefit — or suffer — as a result?
Whatever Mr. McMahon has in store, you won’t want to miss it this Monday night on Raw, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.”
