    WWE interesting facts

    This list is a bit old and some of it is a bit outdated and not accurate anymore. (like Takers streak #) It still has some interesting tidbits on it. I didn't realize Razor was never in a Rumble. I'm sure Moose will like that Jericho named his kid after Evil Dead:

    Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty won the WWF tag team title from Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart in October of 1990 at a taping for Saturday Night's Main Event. Neidhart had been fired and was filling contractual obligations, which including jobbing the tag titles to another team. In what should have been a minor point, the top rope broke at one point during the match. The Rockers defended the titles for a week after that, but then Neidhart was re-hired by the WWF, and Vince McMahon decided that the title change never actually happened, in one of the goofier decisions of the 90s, and one of many to affect the careers of Shawn and Bret. As an explanation, a story was sent to Pro Wrestling Illustrated about the rope break causing an "unfair working environment" for both teams, and hence the title reign was annulled. This was simply to cover up for the fact that they reported the title change as fact a week prior and needed a reason to no longer report it as such. The title change was edited out of the Main Event broadcast, and thus went down in history that the Rockers never had the belt.

    The original idea for WWE Smackdown! was for an all women wrestling show.

    Chris Benoit broke the record for shortest match at a Summerslam when he defeated Orlando Jordan at Summerslam 2005 at 25.5 seconds. The previous record was in 1988 when the Ultimate Warrior defeated the Honky Tonk Man to win the IC title.

    Triple H's win at the 2005 Survivor Series was his first victory at that PPV ever. He debuted in the WWE in 1995.

    I don't think so. I remember some of it, but there are things on there that I never heard or read before.

    Jacques has a shoot interview on YouTube where he talks about Dynamite Kid picking on him quite a bit. Finally got fed up and punched him in the teeth with a roll of dimes in his fist. Knocked out a couple of teeth and knocked him goofy, then punched him again. He stood up for himself at the urging of his brother Raymond. It was told by Jacques himself. So the above story seems to have been fabricated by Dynamite Kid to sound worse than it really was.

    Also concerning Dynamite Kid, Macho Man once went to a bar where some wrestlers from a rival promotion were going to be. He didn't take Andre the Giant or Hulk Hogan, but asked Dynamite Kid to go with him as backup because he knew nobody would mess with him.

    Jake the snake was apparently suppose to beat honky tonk man for the title but because of a neck injury from getting hit with a real guitar they changed the script. jimmy hart has inferred that HtM intended to hurt him when he hit him

    According to the Rougeau Wikipedia page Curt Hennig framed the Bulldogs in a prank at the expense of the Rougeau Brothers that instigated the whole thing
