As always wrestling gives us both great memories and memories we try and forget, but with the amount of moments worth remembering that have happened we are bound to forget some. The same could be said about some talent that were very much underrated during their career or never at the top of a company during a run this unfortunately makes it easier for fans to forget certain talent. These two are very different talent and had two very different careers while they worked in this great business. Sometimes we encounter those that deserve to be remembered and acknowledged. I would like to wish a very big Happy Birthday to all who are celebrating their special day today and especially to the one featured below.
Following his departure from the WWE during the "Monday Night Wars" the former Earthquake aka John Tenta would head to Japan. His last match on record was in the summer of July 2003 as a member of the All Japan roster. John would also take a tour of New Japan for a short stay in 1993 and this is one of the reasons that most people don't remember that he had a stay in Japan. To change things up we are including a third person for this day. For those who don't know George "The Cobra" Takano was one of the prominent junior heavyweights during the golden age for the division in New Japan. Two legends and one future legend makes this day in wrestling history complete.
Happy Birthday to George "The Cobra" Takano who turns 61 years old
