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.
Nerd Note: A little bit of useless knowledge Joe E Legend was once a WWE employee working under the name Just Joe for about a year (2000-2001). Legend also teamed with Kevin Northcutt in NWA-TNA as the Red Shirt Security Team holding the NWA World Tag Titles in 2004. One last one about Legend is that he has been long time friends with Christian, Edge, and Rhino.
Thirty six years ago Jay Youngblood & Ricky Steamboat had a white hot feud with Sgt Slaughter & Don Kernodle culminating in a bloody steel cage match at The Final Conflict in March 1983. These two teams had the classic baby face vs ruthless heel dynamic and were able to sell out the Greensboro Coliseum. Sadly, Jay would pass away September 2nd, 1985 as a result of heart failure.
