- This week’s WWE Classics Five-Star Match of the Week was chosen by Cody Rhodes and he picked Kerry Von Erich vs. Ric Flair for the NWA World Heavyweight Title on May 6th, 1984 for the WCCW David Von Erich Memorial Parade of Champions event. Cody told WWE’s website:

“Fritz Von Erich actually said that David Von Erich himself was really close to being NWA World Heavyweight Champion. David’s untimely death put Kerry Von Erich [in the title picture], but Kerry would’ve become the most popular of the Von Erichs regardless of what happened just off sheer look alone. Nobody looked more like a star than Kerry Von Erich. Arnold Schwarzenegger wouldn’t take a picture with him because of that. What I remember about that match was not just Texas Stadium in Dallas being outdoors and the huge amount of people there. But the end of the match came with a simple backslide. It was a really, really beautiful thing.”

- The Ultimate Warrior gets the Superstar Spotlight on WWE’s website today.

- Here is the Sheamus promo from last night’s episode of WWE Main Event:
