Christian has worked the most ladder-based matches in wrestling history (taking into consideration Ladder, TLC, MITB, King of the Mountain, Full Metal Mayhem, etc) having worked 23 total ladder based matches. Jeff Hardy is second with 20.
Edge has worked the most TLC matches with 7.
Jeff Hardy has never won a match at WrestleMania.
Despite being in the same company for almost 15 years, Triple H and Christian have never worked a singles match against each other. They have tagged together and had promos together, but never worked against each other.
Same with Triple H and Rey Mysterio. Its even more amazing with these two because both have been top stars consistently for years, in the same company.
Scott Hall/Razor Ramon never competed in the Royal Rumble. Pretty amazing when you consider he was one of the top guys in the WWE during the mid 90's.
The WWE needs a new direction. It needs to get back to what it made it succesful in the past. Imagination, making something out of nothing and utilizing every wrestler and not just 1 or 2. The WWE has the talent to be great again, just needs some reinvigoration.
Oh and excuse me in a nod to my previous sig CM Punk is here with Pizza.
We all know that The Rock holds possibly the Greatest WrestleMania record of beating 3 of the top tier superstars of different generations of WWE, i.e,
1. Hogan (Hulkamania & nWo era) at WM X8
2. Austin (AE) at WM XIX
3. Cena (PG) at WM XXVIII
BUT, there's one more PPV record that The Rock holds which might make others envy.
The Rock holds possibly the Greatest No Way Out record of beating 3 of the top tier superstars of different generations of WWE, i.e,
1. Kurt Angle (AE & RA) @ NWO 2001
2. Undertaker (New Gen, AE) @ NWO 2002
3. Hulk Hogan (Hulkamania & nWo) @ NWO 2003
Whoa, that's crazy. I've never heard anyone mention this. Repped.
Again, that's why I made this thread. I've learned one or two things that I didn't know and its just really interesting to me.
One I heard yesterday on Colt Cabanas podcast; Luke Gallows, Festus, Fake Kane whatever you know him as, when he was in developmental as Freakin' Deacon there was a lot of talk, or at least talk for a while, of him maybe being introduced as the third Brother of Destruction.
Santino Marella character in OVW was of a Russian Streetfighter named Boris Alexiev. For those who haven't seen it, you wont believe the difference from his current character...
I honestly thought they would tweak his character when he began teaming with Kozlov into something along these lines.
Have you got the video of it? Is it available on youtube?
here you go
"Every single thing you're doing right now in the wwe john , going to every show , The Rock has already done it . Every single thing you're thinking about doing , outside of the wwe , The Rock has already done it , as a matter of fact The Rock has done it better !"
The vid, it was a Rock/Al Snow match for the WWF title, RAW November 1998:
That is a great fact but wasn't at all what I expected. They should have gone the whole hog with it. I think if I had heard that I wouldn't have even realized what it was. Great fact though.
Sting the wrestler owns the rights and trademark to the name 'Sting' even though the musician has been involved in some of the best-selling music in history. In doing so, the musician was actually blocked from using the domain Sting.com at one point, however it now belongs to The Police frontman.
Speaking of Sting, he has interviewed HBK Shawn Michaels in a religious chat show (of sorts,) discussing their faith.
Also, this following video for 'wrestling and religion' features Sting, Shawn Michaels, Legion of Doom, Ted Dibiase, Buff Bagwell etc and although not really Wrestling trivia, I feel has to be seen to be believed. Specifically the fireworks going on after a 10 bell salute for Hawk and moving the entire crowd closer to God.
Also, this is pretty wild too. A table spot on a show about God?
It is disputed that Goldbergs first WCW appearances were under the monikers of "Horseshoe head" and "Horseshoe Hank". However I can't confirm these, but I have read them a few times.
