The following questions were answered by Paul Nemer.



In 1992, there was a tag team match between Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Savage and Bret Hart. Who won and how?

Bret Hart and Randy Savage won the match when Randy Savage rolled up Shawn to get the 1,2,3.


I remember the XFL being cross-promoted on WWF programming, but it was never shown on UK television. What was it, and what became of it?

The XFL was a football league the WWE and NBC started, but it wasn't successful at all, it folded. It was never shown on UK TV probably because they had no television deal. The WWE lost a lot of money with their investment in that league.


In the mid 90's, Shawn Michaels supposedly got "mugged by ten goons in a parking lot." This caused him to relinquish the belt to Shane 'Dean' Douglas. Was he really beat up? And if so, who were the people involved?

Well this isn't the first time that Shawn Michaels forfeits a title, but you can say it's the only time he forfeited the title because of a valid reason. Shawn Michaels, Sean Waltman (X-Pac), and Davey Boy Smith, the British Bulldog were at a Syracuse night club in New York. In the parking lot, nine men approached them if I am not mistaken, some words were said, then Shawn Michaels got the crap beaten out of him while, Bulldog and Waltman were both held back.


Was Booker T's win over Goldberg in WCW, while he was World Champion, a clean win. If so how did he do it, and do you think WWE would ever mention it in the current storyline, to elevate Booker?

It wasn't necessarily a clean win. Jeff Jarrett and Ernest Miller both enterfered in the match. Goldberg punched down The Cat, then turns around and receives the Harlem side kick by Booker followed by the Bookend and covers him for the win. For the time being I don't think the WWE will mention that. Maybe if one day they both do a program together it might be slightly mentioned, who knows. But I doubt it.


Who played the second undertaker in the undertaker vs undertaker at summerslam 95?

Brian Lee played the character of second Undertaker. You might mostly remember him from 1997 when Brian Lee played the character of "Chainz with DOA (Desciples of Apocalypse) in the WWF. The group of bikers led by Crush.


Now that the WWE owns WCW, (not to say that they would ever do this) would it be possible for them to use WCW characters? For example, can they take a wrestler and give him Sting's gimmick (costume, make-up, name, entrance, etc.) kinda like the fake Diesel and fake Razor Ramon?

If the wrestler doesn't own/have the rights to his name, then yes the WWE can do it. I am certain that Sting has the rights to his name, meaning they can't have someone else come in as Sting. Back when the WWE brought in the fake Razor and Diesel, they were able to do it because Hall and Nash didn't buy out the rights to their character names and their music was copyrighted by the WWE.


Why is Droz not wrestling anymore?

Wow, I am surprised you don't know this by now. Unfortunately, Droz' wrestling career was cut short due to a neck injury and is paralyzed. The incident happened against D-Lo Brown, when a powerbomb went wrong.

I have always heard about Tatanka having a decent winning streak. How long was the streak?

Two years.


At then end of the InVasion angle KroniK where in the WWF/E, I seen them wrestle a few times and then they disappeared, why?

To begin with, they were brought in because they are real life friends with the Undertaker. Although their in-ring work was very rusty and the WWE didn't like it. They were sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling and shortly after they were gone.


How many times is Sting World Heavyweight Champion? What were his reigns?

Sting has had 7 World title reigns, but WCW says nine. I found this page that explains in details his title reigns and what happened along with other questions that are answered about Sting. Go to http://members.chello.at/dietmar.kienboeck/title.htm
