42 years ago in Winnipeg, Canada Verne Gagne & Mad Dog Vachon defeated Pat Patterson & Ray Stevens to take the AWA Tag titles. They held the titles for over a year before losing them to Adrian Adonis & Jesse Ventura.

36 years ago Ken Patera & Mr Saito were found guilty of battery of an officer and damage to property as a result of a 1984 incident* in Waukesha WI. The men were angry a McDonalds refused them service and threw a rock through the window. It ended with a police confrontation. After serving time Ken Patera feuded with former manager Bobby Heenan in the WWF while Saito would later win the AWA World title in the waning days of the federation.

*And I was at the wrestling card the pair appeared on the night of the incident!!

On June 7th in 1965, Mick Foley (aka Cactus Jack/Mankind/Dude Love) was born. With all the bumps & beatings he took in his career it is amazing he can still get around as well as he does. Happy 56th Birthday & thanks for the memories Mick!
