During the early 90’s one man was feared by most. A WCW Champion, the man who was partly responsible for Cactus Jack to lose part of his ear.

This past Saturday Night Sept 13th, There was a big event for The Ashlynn MCclure Memorial 2. A night that should have been celebrated by a gathering of individuals to make a difference by raising money for St. Jude. Ashlynn MCclure was a little girl that passed away too early.

It should be noted that Big Van Vader is still in the intro and this arena is pretty small for a Nitro arena. In-fact, only 2,031 fans paid to see this show and it had 1,169 freebries. Fall Brawl happened last night, so here are some quick results for those who didn’t watch it on the Network:

Yesterday, I praised the WWE for its decision to honor William Moody with his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Now, on the flip side, it’s time to ask a time honored question when it comes to the selection process and the decision of “Who is in” and “Who is out.”
