  • National Multiple Personality Day - Pro-Wrestlers with the Most Personas There has always been a great deal of discussion about the pro-wrestlers with the most identities.  While some wrestlers have had a large number of names and nicknames, they did not have as many distinctively different characters as one might think by looking at a Wikipedia entry.Don KaltNo one had more individual personas then Don Kalt.  He wrestled in five different decades and the handsome young partner of Ray Stevens in the Columbus and the bearded, tattooed and grizzled roughneck Don Fargo working undercards on AWA's ESPN seem like two radically different people.  In between those two are nearly a dozen characters including a bodybuilder, a biker, a gunslinger and a classic bleach blonde heel.Glen ...

  • WWE's Elimination Chamber (2002-2019) The steel cage match had a long history with the company from the days of Bruno Sammartino.  It got an overhaul during the Rock-N-Wrestling days with the big blue cage, which was the company standard for more than a decade.  In 1997, they brought in the "Hell in the Cell" cage, which raised the bar for years.  By 2002, the WWE was still in a steady business decline.  The Survivor Series, considered one of the big four shows in years past, was given a big new gimmick match.  The backstory was that Raw GM Eric Bischoff was creating a dangerous new match (and it proved to be just that), although in reality Triple H has been credited for ...

  • The 26 Royal Rumble winners (1988-2018) There have been only 26 Royal Rumble winners (the last two years have had 2 repeat winners) since the first one in 1988.  Last year, the WWE introduced the women's Royal Rumble at the same event and the Greatest Royal Rumble at their first show in Saudi Arabia.  It looks as though the 30th Royal Rumble winner may happen in 2020 (although a 30th male winner is will probably not occur until 2024 unless they have some more Greatest Royal Rumbles!?)Jim Duggan eliminated the One Man GangBig John Studd eliminated Ted DiBiaseHulk Hogan eliminated Mr. PerfectRic Flair eliminated Sid JusticeYokozuna eliminated Randy SavageBret Hart eliminated with Lex Luger Lex Luger eliminated with Bret ...
