  • Championship Father & Son Tag Teams Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik made WWE history by becoming the companies first father & son tag team to capture a version of the tag titles.  They are, however, hardly the first father-son tandem to win a notable tag team title.  Aguayos (Perro & Perro Jr.) - Mexican Nat'lArmstrongs (Bob & Brad) - GeorgiaArmstrongs (Bob & Steve) - IndependentCurrys (Wild Bull & Flying Fred) - TexasGaribaldis (Gino & Leo) - Los AngelesGrahams (Eddie & Mike) - GeorgiaGuerreras (Fuerza & Juventud) - Mexican Nat'lGuerreros (Gory & Chavo) - Los AngelesHennigs (Larry & Curt) - PNW TagOlivers (Rip & Larry) - PNW TagParkas (LA Park & Hijo Del LA Park) - IndependentPoffos (Angelo & Lanny**) - Detroit

  • #NationalSuperheroDay - Pro-Wrestlers Who Borrowed from Superheroes According to my calendar of many observations and hashtags, April 28th is #NationalSuperheroDay.The connections between the worlds of pro-wrestling and comic book superheroes have been present for decades.  In Mexico, luchadors, most notably El Santo and Blue Demon, have been elevated to superhero status.  In Japan, Kinnikuman combined pro-wrestling with comics to enjoy unique success by bringing the stars in while Tiger Mask and Jushin Liger went the other way by putting their characters in the ring.There are many examples of pro-wrestlers borrowing from the identities of some of the most popular Marvel and DC comic book characters over the years.  Some might have simply used the name, which was the case for "The Incredible ...

  • "Name Yourself Day" - Pro-Wrestlers Who Used Other Pro-Wrestler's Names One of the earliest examples was the teenage Robert Friedrich taking the name "Strangler" Lewis, which may have been a tribute to fellow Wisconsinite Evan "Strangler" Lewis, and using that throughout his career.  Over the years, this became a common trend in pro-wrestling, where an up-and-comer would use a version of an established pro-wrestler's name (often the surname) to help them stand out.We will not delve into those who used popular monikers like The Destroyer, the Assassin or the Executioner or even regionally popular ones like Mr. Wrestling, the Mighty Yankee or the Medics.  These personas, which were almost always masked characters, were often playing off the notoriety of more famous versions, but it ...

  • Southern California Pro-Wrestling Hall of Fame (2001-2021) There was a bizarre story of the Young Bucks (Nick and Matt Jackson) being part of the 2021 Class of the Southern California Pro-Wrestling Hall of Fame.  While Dave Meltzer had shared it on one of his radio shows, it was not confirmed anywhere else.This Hall of Fame is one of the many virtual Halls that exist and recognizes stars within a fixed geographic area.2001Freddie BlassieChavo Guerrero Sr.Roddy PiperLouie SpicolliGrand Olympic Auditorium2002“The Destroyer” Dick BeyerJohnny “Red Shoes” DuganGorgeous GeorgeDick Lane**Ed “Strangler” LewisMil Mascaras2003Mando GuerreroGene LeBellLou TheszJohn Tolos2004Great GoliathMike LeBell**Jimmy Lennon Sr.Baron Michele LeoneJim Londos ...
