Birthdays

Happy birthday to 3-time WWE Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin (37), 6-time World Heavyweight Champion Kevin Nash (53) and former WCW and ECW wrestler PN News (46)

Today is also the birthday of 3-time WCW Television Champion Marc ‘Johnny B Badd’ Mero, though there are conflicting sources on his age. Online World of Wrestling makes him 49, however, his own Marc Mero Bodyslam website lists him as 52. If someone is able to confirm the legitimacy of either age, I’d much appreciate it
