“Wrestling’s Giant Loss” - Toronto’s Saturday Sun [1/30/1993]
While in Paris to attend his father’s funeral, Andre the Giant passed away in his sleep at the age of forty-six due to heart failure. This piece written by Frank Zicarelli goes through his life but also nicely pays tribute to a man who was a phenomenon both in and outside the ring.

Image of the New WWE Championship Leak
The image comes from BeltTalk.com, a message board that focuses on wrestling championship titles. According to PWInsider.com, the image is legit, and this will be the main centerplate for the upcoming WWE Championship redesign. The look isn’t fully completed yet, but you can expect this to replace the “Spinner” title very soon.
CM Punk tipped off fans of this upcoming redesign last week during a Q&A at the Philadelphia Comic Con:
“There is a new title, I’ve seen it and I’ll probably get in trouble for saying it, I don’t know if it’s any better looking than [the ”spinner” title].”
Looks strange to me. Can’t really say much about it until the final version is shown.
