Another interesting addition to WWE.Com's new look/format :

Crap you have no business knowing, but now you do!

12/05

Dec. 18: Former RAW co-general manager Stone Cold Steve Austin, Rob Van Dam, Trish Stratus, and Christina Aguilera all share the same birthday ... December 18th.

Kool: Former WWE Women's champion Trish Stratus is addicted to Kool-Aid.

Hey, Kid: At 19 years old, Rene Dupree became the youngest man to hold a WWE title.

Maniac: WWE ring announcer Howard Finkel came up with the name WrestleMania.

12/14

Personal Foul: Goldberg was a standout football player at Edison High School in Oklahoma. A referee for many of his high school games ... Jim Ross!

Smarty Pants: Lilian Garcia is a cum laude graduate of the University of South Carolina.

Shocking: When out, Mark Jindrak is often mistaken for NY Giant Jeremy Shockey.

Drummer Boy: Five time WCW champion Booker T was the drum major of his high school band.

12/19

How Nice: Smackdown! Superstar Paul London has done extra work in several films, including "Miss Congeniality" and "The Faculty". We suggest you rent them today.

Hellfire and Paintball: When not terrorizing other RAW Superstars, Kane often plays paintball.

Seeing Double: Kanyon was Oliver Platt's stunt double in the movie "Ready to Rumble".

Webster Kicks Ass: Emmanuel Lewis, Usher, and Eric Bischoff's son all earned black belts in karate from Ernest "The Cat" Miller.

Is it me or do Oliver Platt and Kanyon SO not have the same body types?

But seeing as how stunt shots in movies are usually deliberate in how far away they are from the guy when he takes the fall, and how angles are constantly changing so you can't quite pick it up, and the fact you didn't learn this until now, it's not so bad.

Oh, and in terms of the LOTR trilogy: the actor who plays Gimli up close and the guy who runs around as Gimli in far shots? They're different too, and one's a midget! Shock and awe, indeed.

I also remember that Kanyon had to take time off before and after filming the movie to first put on about 30 pounds and then lose it.

I knew this from personal experience. Well, I didn't know she graduated cum laude, but I did meet her at the University before she was "Lillian Garcia of the WWE."

If Kanyon body-doubling for Oliver Platt was your biggest bone to pick with `Ready to Rumble', consider yourself extremely lucky!

Could someone tell me what "cum laude" is, exactly? Because I know it can't possibly mean what I'm thinking.

Errr, I think that would be really *un*lucky.

And I believe "cum laude" means "with honors".

Cum Laude means that you graduated with honors. There are three levels of honors given upon graduation from a college or university: Cum Laude, the lowest, Magna Cum Laude, the middle and Suma Cum Laude, the highest. I'm not sure of the exact translations, but I'm assuming it's Latin. My spelling might be off there, sorry.

Yeah, my degree in communications with cum laude honors has gotten me *real* far so far.

Cum Laude is Latin for "with honor".

Magna Cum Laude is translated as "with high honor".

Summa Cum Laude is translated to either "with the highest honor" or "with the greatest honor".

Meeting Lilian I'd be beyond Cum Laude in meeting her, I'd be Summa Cum Laude!... I actually knew what that meant but I could imagine 80% of the people going on to the site seeing Lilian looking all sexy with the words "Cum Laude" next to her might have the same reaction of HogansMyDad had LoL

The "Backdoor" page seems like a play on ESPN Page2 feature, with features that don't really have a direct effect on WWETV. It's decent and interesting I guess... Plus what are the odds of having 3 people sharing the same birthday being on the same wrestling roster.

In the blurb about Paul London, it's pretty sad that they show a picture of Sandra Bullock instead of him. Give the guy a little respect.
