— WWE Hall of Famer The Iron Sheik turns 70 years old today. Happy Birthday Shiekybaby…. I make you humble! 🙂
— Late WWE Hall of Famer Antonio Rocca died on this date in 1977 at age 55.
— There are no pro wrestling shows listed for ESPN Classic this weekend. The AWA and UWF shows will return on Monday, and ESPN Classic will be running a more active schedule of wrestling next week.
— Here are some additional details on the rumored CM Punk injury from RAW this past week. Rumors started Monday night when people stated during the RAW main event that the referee put up the “X” sign during the match when Punk took a bump to the floor. There was then a story circulating that Punk put up a post on Twitter and then took it down regarding a knee injury. That story also included a note saying that a WWE source said his injury doesn’t look promising. We never reported that here on this website.
That story is said to be completely false and that Punk’s injury from RAW was an arm injury. At this time, the injury is said not to be serious as we noted earlier this morning.
