    Default Wrestling facts you just learned.

    I'm posting this thread over here in WWOW for 2 reasons.

    1. I like it over here better. While there might be a lot less traffic over here, the majority of the regulars are much cooler over here. It seems every time I post in the WWE section, I get dissed by some troll. Lol.

    2. I'm posting this thread here because this is where the topic belongs. So I guess that makes sense.

    Anyway, is there anything about wrestling you just learned and almost find it hard to believe that you didn't know this fact. For instance, I just learned that Ted Dibiase's(pronounced as Teddy Deb you Csometimes by Boyd Pierce and other times correctly) father died in the ring. I had no idea that Mike Dibiase died in the ring. Actually he is Ted's step father, but his biological dad was also a wrestler.

    He had a heart attack I believe. Didn't know DiBiase's bio father was also a wrestler. Learned something new today.

    Undertaker killed the original Warrior back in the 90s.

    Wait, what? Oh you mean the coffin angle where Jake convinced Warrior to face his fears and he locked him in a room with a bunch of snakes. Afterwards, Taker locked Warrior in a coffin and they couldn't get him out. If I remember correctly, this was the first time a wrestler turned heel via pre-taped backstage(or wherever they were suppose to be on that cheap set)vignettes as opposed to in-ring shenanigans.

    Was that when Jake Roberts straight up Kicked Miss Elizabeth is in the face. Holy shit I was shocked. How'd he ever come back from that. I mean, being a good guy again ...

    That actually did a lot for pathos as far as wrestling is concerned.

    Very rarely does wrestling actually make you FEEL.

    Jake was a little bit like the Bray Wyatt of 1990-1991 WWF. He was basically a sociopath that would do some disturbing things to people only to eventually lose in the pay-off match. He was always in the hottest angles not to involve the title in those years against guys like the Warrior, Savage and Taker.

    I just learned that the scouts of several MLB teams were scouting Hogan. Apparently he turned down baseball in the 1970's so he could be a wrestler back then when the money was probably not very good. Of course, this was on wikipedia and probably came from Hogan's own computer.

    Hulk Hogan is also the highest paid porn star ever. True story.
