• WWF Legend Needs A Wheelchair At Times

During a recent episode of ‘Busted Open Radio’, Old School WWF Legend Mark Henry talked about a brutal spinal injury keeping him from getting back in the ring in AEW.

Here’s what The World’s Strongest Man had to say:

“To be honest, to be completely transparent, I got nerve damage is why I don’t wrestle, in my back, in my sacroiliac joint.

It will just go out, and I’ll be on the ground, and there have been times where I do too much at AEW, and I have to take a wheelchair through the airport, and it sucks because I’m prideful, and I hate it when I can’t walk through the airport. Feels like my leg is on fire.

I’m not saying that for a pity party for me. I’m saying that Darren Droszdov is in a wheelchair for the rest of his life, paralyzed from the chest down. I know countless other guys that are on canes and in wheelchairs too.

My doctor told me, ‘Hey, man. You know you can surgically get that fixed?’ And he said, ‘Don’t do it until you can’t walk no more. Let that be your last alternative.’

So I feel it, but I’m not there yet, you know what I’m saying?”

Mark henry worked for The World Wrestling Federation (later WWE) for 25 years straight (1996-2021) before joining Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling on May 30, 2021.

• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Veteran Savio Vega (Real name: Juan Rivera) turns 58 today.

After making a name for himself as TNT in his home country of Puerto Rico, he joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1993 as Kwang, managed by Harvey Wippleman.

In May 1995, he was no longer known as the masked Kwang, but started to wrestle without a mask as puerto rican babyface Savio Vega.

In January 1997, he joined The Nation of Domination, but got kicked out in June, which resulted in him forming his own stable, Los Boricuas.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAVIO VEGA!
