-Former WWE star Big Bossman (a/k/a Raymond Washington Traylor, Jr.) would have turned 50 today. The man who I first met as Big Bubba Rodgers went on to have one of the more absurd, and yet memorable, moments in WWE history when he dragged Big Show's father's casket away with Show on top. Traylor passed away after a heart attack at his home. He was 41.

-The following matches are listed for the 11:00 p.m. AWA Wrestling on ESPN Classic: Burroughs vs. The Ninja; Pitman vs. Scott Hall; Boris Zhukov & Ali Khan vs. Myers & Cooper; Paul Garner vs. Nick Bockwinkel; Scott Hall vs. Col. DeBeers.
