• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan (Real name: James Edward Duggan Jr.) celebrates his 65th birthday today.
Duggan wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1987 to 1993, then went to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1994 and worked for the promotion until he left in early 2001, before returning to the now renamed WWE in 2005, where he was under contract till early 2009, but mostly wrestled on Sunday Night HEAT or at House Shows during this last major run.
During his career he won the first ever Royal Rumble match in 1988 and later won both the WCW United States Championship and the WCW World Television Championship.
In 2011, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his long-time friend “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIM DUGGAN!

• WWE Wrestler Says He Doesn’t Need A Push
WWE 205 Live wrestler Mike Kanellis posted a photo of his physical transformation on Twitter and this led to a fan saying that he’ll now get a push in the Cruiserweight division because of his improved look.
You’re gonna get a push now!

This led to Mike responding that he doesn’t need any push from WWE:
I appreciate the kind words. But I don’t need a push. I push myself everyday, and that is why I succeed. https://t.co/tUC4RxMpU9

The most noteworthy thing that Mike Kanellis has done since his WWE signing is ‘failing’ to break the record for the fastest elimination in a Royal Rumble match when he got quickly eliminated in the 50 man Greatest Royal Rumble match in 2018.
