Happy Birthday Sir Oliver Humperdink // RIP Mae Young

I first knew of Oliver as the head of the House of Humperdink in Mid-Atlantic wrestling and well I did not like him - since his crew was trying to maim my favorite grappler Roddy Piper. I later was lucky enough to meet him via facebook and trade links to classic soul and blues songs

with a fellow music fan and was just as lucky to do an interview with the former wrestling manager. He was a class act and I will miss him.

Also as many wrestling fans know - the legendary Mae Young passed away this week - Mae had been grappling since World War 2 and has entertained generations of wrestling fans. My thoughts go out to her friends and family.
