Default Wrestling Trivia (Facts not everyone knows)

I put this here because I'm sure there was a thread like this but it has disappeared looking back.

Basically, this is a thread to post some facts about wrestling some people may not know, and are interesting.

I'll start with some I find interesting;

Owen Hart was originally meant to become 'The Game' Owen Hart.

Scott Hall came up with the idea of Crow Sting.

Bret Hart was originally planning on joining WCW in 1992, but it fell through. Shawn Michaels was also going to jump ship in the mid-90s until he realized there wasn't much hope for him with Hogan there.

New Jack got in touch with WWE about 10 years ago and pitched an idea that it was He who stabbed John Cena when he was attacked in a nightclub during his feud with Carly Calon.

Anyone have anymore?

Sting was planned to be the third Outsider until 4 days before BatB. The British Bulldog was the original choice as the fourth NWO member but the deal fell through so they turned the Giant instead.

Similar to Hogan/Sting, RVD was supposed to be in the Jeff Hardy role as a member of "They" in TNA.

Angle was to become the first Undisputed champion until just days prior to Vengeance.

Scott Hall can't really take credit for the Sting Crow gimmick, as the gimmick was stolen wholesale from a comic book and movie. I could never get past that fact. I suppose Sting turning into a comic book movie character makes sense. He was buddies with Robocop after all.

Not true. That was just a rumour that got started because some fan edited Owen hart's fansite and added that part in his bio page.

"The Game" Moniker came about only after HHH's shoot Interview with JR. The fans started bringing signs calling him the game, and it eventually stuck with him.
