Ironies In Wrestling
I love finding different types of ironies in things, so let's post some funny/interesting ironies that can be found in pro wrestling. I'll start off with a few:
1. Bischoff gave a speech backstage around October '97 where he assured everyone that the WWF would be out of business in six months. Six months later (April 1998) turned out to be the month that WWF ended their dominant ratings streak instead.
2. Bischoff told Austin that a guy who wears plain black boots and black tights was hard to market and that he would never become a star looking like that. Yet this is the same look that Austin maintained when he left for WWF and became the main force that shifted momentum against WCW in the Monday Night Wars.
3. #30 is supposed to be the most coveted number in the Royal Rumble, yet there's been more people that drew #1 and #2 (the worst numbers of the whole match) and won than there have been who drew #30.
