I just checked the Boy Krazy bit. There was a member named Ruth Taylor, but the single only went to #18 on the national Billboard Charts. You know, just in case you cared...

I don't think this is quite true. Scott Hudson announced on RAW during the invasion with Arn Anderson. Eric Bischoff has also announced on both shows as well.

David Spade teaches us an Important Lesson:

Joe Dirt: So you're gonna tell me that you don't have no black cats, no roman candles, or screaming mimis?
Kicking Wing: No.
Joe Dirt: Oh come on man. You got no lady fingers, fuzz buttles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zippity do das, or crap flappers?
Kicking Wing: No, I don't.
Joe Dirt: Yer gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, no spleen spliters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hoosker doos, hoosker don'ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistling kitty chaser?
Kicking Wing: No... because snakes and sparklers are the only ones I like.
Joe Dirt: Well that might be your problem, it's not what you like, it's the consumer.

Well we ALL know how Shawn Michaels "weasels" his way into Wrestlemania matches, if that counts for anything. :/

I think they meant "only full-time announcer" to work RAW & Nitro.

Re: the Greg "The Hammer" Valentine tidbit... I'm pretty sure he and Flair had at least a small feud at some point, but did that little bit of history ever come into it?

Flair and Valentine teamed from October 1976 until 1978. They won the "world" (Mid-Atlantic version) tag titles twice. Major feuds with the Andersons as well as Paul Orndorff/Jimmy Snuka.

Valentine spent some time with the WWWF before coming back to Mid-Atlantic in late 1979/early 1980.

Flair was a babyface and Valentine a tweener heel when he returned. Valentine convinced Flair to tag with him once again to face Snuka and Iron Sheik.

Valentine refused to tag Flair, cementing his heeldom. After Flair was pinned, Valentine took Gene Anderson's cane and hit Naitch with it. In this, he accidentally legitimately broke Flair's nose.

They continued a feud off and on for quite some time, highlighted by bloody matches.

As far as the plane crash and Greg Valentine go, he was brought into the area in September or so of 1976. They did make mention that he was Johnny Valentine's son (earlier in his career, the elder Valentine requested that Greg be acknowledged as his brother, so folks wouldn't know how old Johnny really was).

In the few Mid-Atlantic matches I have (1980ish-1981), no mention is made of the crash. And I have some good stuff from their 1980 feud.

The plane crash was October 4, 1975.

Valentine was left paralyzed from the waist down, but continued trying to make a comeback for 10 years.

John Valentine was sitting up front next to the pilot on the plane. Story goes that Flair was initially slated to be in that seat, but talked Valentine into switching seats with him before they took off.

Ahh... seems a shame that they apparently didn't make use of that, it would've been practically guaranteed to be hot.

Thanks for the info!

He had another great match with Rude at SSlam 89. Thought they might have included this squash over Hunter. Wonder who nixed that idea?
