Re: Wrestling Trivia (Facts not everyone knows)
Randy Savage was a minor league baseball player before he was a wrestler. He injured his throwing arm, but he didn't want that to stop him. He practiced throwing with his other arm.
Vader's eye popped out during a match with Stan Hansen in Japan. He finished the match.
According to Jim Cornette, HBK was supposed to drop the title to Vader in late 1996 and win it back from him at Royal Rumble 1997 in Shawn's hometown. Shawn didn't want to work with him, so Sid replaced him.
Mike Jones, better known as Virgil, made a career out of having wrestling names that mocked important figures in the business. In WWE he was Virgil, making fun of Dusty Rhodes' real name. In WCW he was Vincent and Shane, making fun of Vince and Shane McMahon. (Source- The Death of WCW)
I heard Hogan's matches on Saturday Night's Main Event took place in the middle of the show because he wanted to get back to the hotel in time for room service. Shawn Michaels repeats this on the Bret/Shawn dvd, but doesn't mention Hogan by name.
