-WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Sammartino (a/k/a Bruno Leopoldo Francesco Sammartino) turned 78 Sunday. Sammartino still holds the record for the longest single WWE (WWWF) Championship reign in history.
-Former ECW/WWE star Rhino (a/k/a Terrance "Terry" Gerin) turns 38 today. Rhino's last major appearance was as a member of SCUM in ROH.
-Current WWE Diva Kaitlyn (a/k/a Celeste Beryl Bonin) turns 27 today. Kaitlyn has been conspicuous by her absence from WWE TV since losing the feud over the Divas title with AJ Lee at SummerSlam, though she has appeared on the WWE app since then.
-The late Brian Pillman (a/k/a Brian William Pillman, Sr.) passed away 16 years ago on Saturday (October 5, 1997) from a previously undetected heart condition at the age of 35. Pillman's legacy of the "loose cannon" character can be seen influencing current characters from CM Punk to Bray Wyatt.
-The late WWE Hall of Famer Gorilla Monsoon (a/k/a Robert James "Gino" Marella) passed away 14 years ago Saturday (October 6, 1999) of heart failure at 62. The staging area just behind the curtain in wrestling is still referred to as the "Gorilla position" today because that was where Monsoon would watch shows later in his career.
-The late "Gentleman" Chris Adams passed away on this date 12 years ago (October 7, 2001) of a gunshot wound to the chest after a drunken brawl with a friend at the age of 46.
