- WWE Hall of Famer Barry Windham turns 59 years old today.
- Ivar of The Viking Raiders took to Twitter this week and tweeted a throwback photo from 2006, showing how he's still unable to block a dropkick from WWE Champion Kofi Kingston. Kofi responded to a fan tweet and noted that he was almost 30 pounds heavier back then.
It looks like the 2006 photo was taken back when Kofi and Ivar worked the Northeast indie wrestling scene, possibly for the Chaotic Wrestling promotion in Massachusetts.
