• Old School WWF Tag Team Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School World Wrestling Federation Veteran Bart Gunn (Real name: Michael Polchlopek) turns 55 today.
Bart Gunn first joined the WWF in 1993 as one half of The Smoking Gunns with his Tag Team partner Billy Gunn and together they won the WWF Tag Team Champions 3 times.
While his 1998 Tag Team with Bob Holly as The New Midnight Express wasn’t exactly successful, Bart Gunn did make a name for himself by winning the infamous ‘Brawl For All’ tournament.
He returned for one night at the ‘RAW 15th Anniversary Spectacular’ on December 10, 2007 as a participant in a Battle Royal that featured a lot of Old School 90s WWF Wrestlers.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BART GUNN!
