10 Things We Learned on Andre the Giant’s Interview with David Letterman

A couple of weeks ago, the “CM Punk of ESPN” Bill Simmons mentioned on his podcast that there existed footage on YouTube of Late Show host David Letterman interviewing the “Eighth Wonder of the World” & the first inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame, Andre the Giant on his old late night show on NBC.

Wow, Chris Jericho is…the…MAN!  I’ve already gushed about Y2J in a post regarding why he was always welcome in the WWE, but for those who are unfamiliar was to why the Man of the Millennium is so awesome, Daine Pavloski of the Bleacher Report complied a list of fun, little factoids of the Man of 1,004 Holds himself.  Ever since debuting in October of 1990 in independent wrestling shows in Canada, Jericho has wrestled in various countries, took the ECW, WCW and WWE by storm, and competed in matches with — and beaten — some of the best professional wrestlers to ever step foot in the squared circle.  This list may even make you become a BIGGER fan of the Brewer of Jerichohol.   Continue reading “Chris Jericho: Fun Facts About the Ayatollah of Rock-N-Rolla”

The WWE Royal Rumble: By The Numbers!

Congratulations to John Cena for winning the 2013 Royal Rumble (becoming the 4th to win the event twice — first time in 2008) and punching his ticket to a World Championship match at WrestleMania XXIX!  For the unfamiliar, the Royal Rumble is the WWE’s annual pay-per-view event produced every January since 1988, in which the event’s main feature is the “Royal Rumble match.”  The match is based on the classic Battle Royal match, in which a number of wrestlers enter the ring at certain time intervals (after 2 wrestlers begin the match) with the goal of eliminating their competitors by tossing them over the top rope, with both feet touching the floor. The winner of the event is the last wrestler remaining after all others have been eliminated, and that wrestler gets a world title shot at WrestleMania.  The WWE recently put up a “By The Numbers” video accounting for several interesting historic and information tidbits on the Royal Rumble, the participants, and stories in the events lineage.  Check out the video after the break!   Continue reading “The WWE Royal Rumble: By The Numbers!”
