• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Legend “The Masked Assassin” Jody Hamilton (Real name: Joseph Hamilton) celebrates his 82nd birthday today.
Jody Hamilton wrestled for several territories during the 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s, before a back injury forced him to retire from active professional wrestling in 1988.
As Assassin #1, he was one half of the famous old school Tag Team “The Assassins” aka “The Masked Assassins”, but over the years Jody had several partners under the mask of Assassin #2, such as Roger Smith, Tom Renesto, “Moondog Rex” Randy Colley and even Hercules Hernandez.
In 1993, Hamilton worked for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling as a heel manager for Pretty Wonderful (Paul Orndorff & Paul Roma).
In 1994, he was inducted into the short-lived WCW Hall of Fame, but he has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which – if it actually happens – is most likely going to happen as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MASKED ASSASSIN!

– Matt Riddle def. Shorty G (King Corbin vs. Matt Riddle is made official for Payback)

Alexa had a blank look on her face and then got upset and broke Nikki’s mug
