– Celebrating birthdays today are WWE United States Champion Dean Ambrose (28), WWE Hall of Famer Tammy “Sunny” Sytch (41), and former WWE Superstar Curtis Hughes (49). Plus, today would have marked as the fifty-fifth birthday of WWE Hall of Famer “Ravishing” Rick Rude; he died at the age of 40 on April 20, 1999 due to heart failure.
Sytch, who is currently undergoing treatment for cervical cancer, remarked the following on Facebook on Friday, “Well, the day turned out not as I had planned… The easiest part should have been getting my epidural, but instead, I almost passed out in the table. My pre-op appt and pre-op testing went smoother and faster than I was imaging. That shot hurt like s**t this morning!!!”
– This week’s “Raw Slam of the Week” features the return of Sin Cara, while the tandem of Big Show and Rey Mysterio are highlighted in the “SmackDown Slam of the Week.”
