WCW NJPW Collision in Korea Day 1 – April 28th, 1995 – Today in Wrestling History

Collision in Korea was something of a weird event. It featured athletes from World Championship Wrestling (WCW) taking on New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).

WWE 2K Battlegrounds Videogame

WWE 2K Battlegrounds Trailer Released

WWE 2K Battlegrounds just might wash that bad taste from WWE 2K20 out of your mouth. The trailer was just released, and it is interesting to say the least.

Fabulous Freebird Terry Gordy Born Today – April 23rd, 1961 – Today in Wrestling History

If you do not know who Terry Gordy is then I must ask, do you really watch wrestling? Born Terry Ray Gordy, the world probably knows him better as a Fabulous Freebird. While he won multiple tag team championships, and even created at least one, as a Freebird, there is more to Gordy’s career.

Jay Lethal Ring of Honor ROH Championship

Happy Birthday Jay Lethal Multi-Time TNA X-Division Champion – April 21st, 1985 – Today in Wrestling History

I want to start this special birthday celebration with a memory. I met Jay Lethal about a decade or so ago at an indie show in Russellville Arkansas. He was great, had time to talk with fans (like me) and generally was a great person. Even though I am sure he was pressed for time, […]

Sure, as of […]
