Just random stuff I've always wanted to know.


1. I heard a story once about how Gerald Brisco found some gambling site that let you bet on pro wrestling and cleaned up during a WWE pay-per-view. Anybody know where that story came from? Would love to know more.

2. I keep hearing that CM Punk has slept with half the Divas locker room. How'd that rumor get started, and who's got the list?

3. Anybody know the backstory about Herc not wanting to sell for Sid in this match? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cDybqsmxP0

I know that Punk has had a rep as a poon hound since his ROH days where he was linked with Traci Brooks and Daphne.

If I had to guess; it's because Hercules knew his contract was up; and that was his last match; and he had nothing to lose by refusing to sell for Sid. Maybe he had a grudge against him?

Would like to throw an obscure question in here: Has a reason ever been given for Vince letting Ricky Steamboat work the Cotton Bowl show for World Class in '86? Besides Vince not being known to help rival companies out, it wasn't like Steamboat had any ties to the area.

Punk and Maria were an item for a while.



"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

I think his pussy hound reputation may be what Wade Barrett (or whoever) was referring to when he said CM Punk doesn't really live the straight edge lifestyle, since promiscuous sex/hooking up is apparently one of the things those folks aren't supposed to do. Which is a stronger argument than "CM Punk is a hypocrite because he drinks Pepsi." Oh, Matt Hardy.

Of all things, I happened to have a copy of the 10/06/86 Observer reasonably handy when I glanced at the thread.. the report was that Steamboat was the first of several Titan wrestlers who would come into Dallas for one shots. The plan at the time was for other WWF stars to come for Thanksgiving and Christmas shows - apparently Fritz Von Erich was having a hard time of it from Bill Watts and his Mid South/UWF promotion grabbing his talent, and running shows in WCCW cities.

The story also mentioned that it was potentially a way for McMahon to use the exposure of his stars in new markets to lay the groundwork for eventual WWF shows in the nationwide expansion.

Yeah, I don't think the King's Road ever led to a T&A spectacle. Makes me wonder if the heel faction with Bull Buchanan, Rico & Jamal is going to bring their own band of gaijin chicks for a game of dodgeball.
