Wrestling fun facts!

I just found out a weird fact that I didn't know, wasn't sure where to post it as I thought (think) it's kinda cool... got me wondering what other little tidbits have escaped us over the years.

Caveat; if this thread has legs, let's avoid "word has it" kind of "facts" and stick to verifiable (sourceable) stories, facts, details, wrestling urban legends (.way back in the day there was quite a lengthy list in the retro section devoted to that very topic).. or whatever.

Kicking things off....

I've been binging on old Raw's around 2001, and got wondering who did the voice in those Kaientai "EVIL" promos where they did the mock dubbing....

Turns out it was Shane McMahon.

I always heard that Sid shit his pants during that WM13 match with Undertaker.

That's a classic tale.

EDIT: Turns out it wasn't at WM13, and was instead of a prior house show, which rekindled the memory I have of a person telling me that a long time ago during a PPV gathering.

And that's cool. I loved the Kaientai "evil" gimmick, and it worked incredibly well for them.

Just wish Funaki had a better run. That boy was great when given time. I marked out hard for his CW Title win at Armageddon 2004. One of the only bright spots on that show outside of the main event and opener.

It's an inside joke in the business. A lot of wrestlers have a Shit My Pants story. All that bouncing around can squeeze something the wrong way and there's Orton. (couldn't resist)

I just want to add that every post in this thread should be required to be accompanied by the redhead girl from Kids in the Hall.

It's a fact!





Is everyone mad here?
Of course they are, and you are too... otherwise, you wouldn't have come here.

I've actually tried finding that before, without luck. So maybe this:

Might be a bit gruesome, but here are some facts about Owen Hart's death:

When Owen fell from the rafters, he hit chest first on the turnbuckle. The impact literally "exploded" heart. His aorta was violently separated from the heart. His cause of death was officially listed as "internal bleeding due to blunt force trauma to the chest" by the St. Louis coroner.

The ref for that match, Jeff Korderas, has stated that he was standing in that very turnbuckle waiting for the match to begin when he heard screaming above him. He recalls now that it was Owen screaming "Look out!" He happened to move a foot or two to the right and Owen crashed next to him.

Jerry Lawler was the first person to reach Owen after the fall. He states that Owen's eyes were open but lifeless and that he had a huge gash on his arm. However, he noticed the gash was not bleeding at all and knew immediately that Owen was dead. He held Owen until the EMTs arrived. He said Owen turned from pink to purple to grey in just a matter of minutes.

Paramedics worked on Owen for 15 minutes in the ring before loading him on to a stretcher and bringing him to the hospital. The crowd went from loudly chanting "Owen, Owen!" to deathly silent over that time period.

The next match (which included Owen's good friend Jeff Jarrett) had to go out and wrestle with Owen's blood still staining the ring.

Owen was scheduled to win the IC title that night.

Investigators later concluded that had Owen landed flat in the ring rather than hitting the turnbuckle, he probably would have survived albeit severely injured.

The WWE maintains one master copy of the PPV that shows Owen's impact. It is locked in the WWE video vault in Stamford and Vince had decreed that it will NEVER be shown to the public under ANY circumstances. It is only kept on hand for legal reasons.

Hey! vonLampertheim! Long time no see!

Glad to see you haven't missed a beat! Still mocking people for contributing something while simultaneously adding nothing to the conversation.

Never change!

And you're still defiantly off-topic and self-aggrandizing. Consistency, thy name is CCharger.

When you peaked at 2013 Total Divas recaps, isn't it time to rethink your own of ongoing purpose for posting here? Or is this where you tell us about your past glory scoring those four touchdowns in one game for Polk High?

Ahh, I remember the ole rumor that the Hart family was given the master copy of that PPV and that Bret burned it.

Glad to know WWE still has it, though.

Someday, somehow, someone is gonna access that and leak it.

There's a clip on YouTube where someone claims in the description that it's footage of Owen falling. I refuse to click on it and won't post it a link to it here but everyone else can make up their own mind about viewing it I guess.

Off topic? For posting facts about a wrestling topic in a thread entitled "Fun Wrestling Facts"? What would you consider ON topic? For that matter, you have posted twice in this thread about me, but have yet to contribute anything to the thread.

Either way, carry on. The smarmy dickhead you don't know is a lot more dangerous than the one you can hear and see.

There was no "fun" in that fact. It was, in fact, a bit gruesome. While it was factual, and interesting, it really ain't fun.

There's people who upload the New Jack/Vic Grimes XPW scaffold spot and title it as Owen's fall. If I was to guess, that's probably the case for the video you're referencing.

I've got it. It was live after all. I hear it may be on a couple of wrestling torrent sites..

The details of a violent death will always be disturbing, but it actually made me smile to think his very last thoughts and words were for the safety of another. Heartwarming in its way, if not fun.

Fun fact you all probably know but is still more fun than the above: Hulk Hogan once wrestled under the name Sterling Golden. To this day, we do not know what noun those two adjectives are describing, though "life-sized statue of himself plowing Bubba the Love Sponge's Wife, as paid for by Gawker" might end up winning the prize.

Dating back to its inception in 1963 with the crowning of Buddy Rogers as the inaugural champion, there have been 130 different WWE world title reigns culminating in the current champ, AJ Styles.

Of those 130 reigns, the belt has been held by 44 different men.

Bruno Sammartino took the title off of Rogers in 1963, and held the title until 1971; the longest uninterrupted stretch the title has been held for. By contrast, 1999 saw 11 different title changes, with Rock, Austin, Foley, Big Show, HHH, Undertaker, and Vince McMahon himself each laying claim to the title.

I got you, Chargie. Here, hold my beer...

Fun Wrasslin' Fact:

Unbeknownst to many, Chris Benoit was attempting to destroy the Necronomicon on that fateful day and sadly, because of his thick Canadian accent, he not only mispronounced the 'Nicto' part as 'NictOH', but what really pissed the Deadites off was him adding a 'buddy' at the end of the incantation. Tragically, they weren't his buddy, guy. And they certainly weren't his guy, friend.
