– On Saturday, former ECW World Heavyweight Champion Justin Credible appeared steamed with Matt Striker following their match for the New York Wrestling Connection in Deer Park, New York.
The two former WWE Superstars engaged in a scientific match featuring a storyline where if Credible cleanly defeated Striker (who portrayed the heel), they would tangle in a hardcore match next month. Following Striker’s loss, the former WWE announcer struck Credible, causing him to bleed. Following the bout, Striker attempted to apologize backstage, but Credible fired back profanities and stormed away.

– Steve Cox, who competed for multiple promotions during the 1980s and early 1990s including the Universal Wrestling Federation, World Class Championship Wrestling and the National Wrestling Alliance, discussed his career in an interview with www.notinhalloffame.com.
In response to whether he watches wrestling today, Cox said, “I do, when I can. Now CM Punk and John Cena, you’ve got to me kidding me. Is this the best you got? Don’t get me wrong, but if this is the best you got, but these guys ain’t Brody. These guys would get destroyed in my day. When you watch the work today, it’s so light. It’s too make believe; too much entertainment. In my day, you believed you were getting your ass kicked, because you actually were.”
