  1. Whoops. Distractions, disctractions. Hurm... Ah, inspiration. In the 90s the WWF started up a late night Saturday show (whose name escapes me at the moment). On one of the first episodes there was a match involving Goldust (I believe his opponent was the Sultan). GD was still being managed by Marlena at the time. How did Marlena distract Goldust's opponent during that match?
  2. Heh, you must be a fairly recent fan then. This is how it used to be back in the good old days (dear God, did I just refer to the 80s as the good ol' days?) Back when they actually had to build a storyline or 6 over a few months. Much better format, gave time for some really good stuff. Especially in the NWA.
  3. Yes, Tom Billington (Dynamite Kid) is wheelchair bound now. Due to years of steroid abuse & the aerial stunts he performed during his career. 'Tis a shame. He does have an autobiography out. Very good read.
  4. The name that comes to mind is Sterling Golden.
  5. Yep. He defeated Antonio Inoki June 2, 1983 (hey, Monday was the 20th anniversary) via knockout in the finals of a 10-man tournament. You're up T_H.
  6. That was the "I Quit" match... Best part was when Rock and Mick were fighting in the office and the phone rings and Rock just stops to answer it and starts talkin and say No... Mick can't come to the phone cause he is getting candy ass whooped! :lol: 8) You're getting your matches mixed up. The Superbowl match was the empty arena match, which Mick won by pinning Rock with pallet on a forklift. And the comment on the phone was closer to "Mankind can't come to the phone, he's tied up at the moment", since Rock had the phone cord wrapped around Mick. The I Quit match was at the Rumble.
  7. Sliding back into championship trivia mode here... Who was the first IWGP (New Japan) heavyweight champion?
  8. I was wondering what the hell that promo last Monday (4/26) was all about. Hopefully you're right about Gail (La Felina from the independent scene) being on the RAW roster. That's what I'm thinking as well. It'd be the logical move, as there's no competition on the SD roster in an actual wrestling capacity.
  9. Ah, wasn't that the one where the Rockers won the belts from the Hart Foundation? But, as you said, the title change was negated due to the ropes breaking.
  10. At least Vader was on the list. Where the hell was Luke? Sheesh. And at least they picked worthy villains to be ahead of Vader (Norman Bates & Hannibal Lecter, #s 2 & 1 respectively). Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird was picked as the best hero? WTF? Over Bond (3rd) & Indy (2nd)? Pathetic. :evil:
  11. Yep, right off the bat too. You're up T_H.
  12. Just another example of the useless trivia that I've got rattling around in my skull. I think he was the first person I saw use the stump puller & have always thought that it is probably a pretty good submission move. And the whole cigar/derby hat gimmick helped lodge him in my mind. Wasn't Harvey Wippleman his manager? Anyways... What referee was "fired" by the NWA for helping the Varsity Club win the tag team titles back in the late 80s? Hint: He's still around today, & has gone through another change of job recently.
  13. Yep, same thing I'm thinking. A guy just sick enough for the job? Sounds like Mick to me. Although, he didn't seem too interested in having anything to do with the WWF in December due to the whole Katie Vick thing. I'd love to see him back though.
  14. The transforming costume (from a certain point of view) was in an issue of Wizard as part of their annual Halloween Costume Contest. And it wasn't Jazz. It was the white Stunticon car (Breakdown?).
  15. Impressive. Most impressive. It was indeed Antonio Inoki. A title change that the WWF to this day refuses to recognize. Inoki beat Backlund in Tokoshima, Japan on Nov. 30, 1979 & lost the title back to Backlund a week later in Tokyo. You're up T_H
  16. Iron Shiek beat Backlund, however he was not the first to beat Backlund for the WWF World Title. So that is incorrect. Try again. -
  17. Oh now see, that's just too easy. j/k Jeff Jarrett. Who was the first person to defeat Bob Backlund for the WWF World title?
  18. Oh yeah. Heh. Ah, continuing with what might become a title themed line of questions... Who was the first ECW Heavyweight Champion?
  19. How's $19.99 strike ya? 4 figures, some form of extra (tripod cannon/extra accessories, tauntaun, swoop), stands. Not bad at all.
  20. Bret "The Hitman" Hart. He defeated Mr. Perfect, who was injured going into the match & still put on a hell of a show. 8) And honestly, both questions (as well as my one about the Lawler/Funk match) are very obscure. The Hogan one was only used a couple of times (I barely remember it & I was fully into my wrestling fan-ness at the time). The Slick one was overly broad. Can we just shake hands & come out questioning?
  21. Oh hell yeah, I'm getting those. Imperial pack is already showing up at TRUs. Haven'te found one here...yet. Definite must have. Hoth pack is even better. 4 figures, a tauntaun (w/split open belly!) & tauntaun guts! A very outstanding move on Hasbro's part. My one gripe (at the moment) is that it looks like Luke is suffering from "President Skroob" syndrome. He's literally ass backwards. @*- Bounty Hunters pack...hurm. The re-tooled/re-painted swoop is pretty bad ass. Hurm.
