The following questions were answered by Paul Nemer.

Buff Bagwell receiving that top rope bulldog from Rick Steiner. What was the extent of that injury?

It was a very serious injury that's for sure. Bagwell suffered two damaged vertebraes in his neck and couldn't feel his legs at all. He had more than one surgery, blood clot, and a couple of other things that are splipping my mind right now. The goos news was that Buff Bagwell was back in less than a year though to join the nWo.

Whatever happened to "Sensational Queen Sherri"?

Thanks to Sherri Fan for some help on this answer:

Sherri is currently 45 years old living in Kingsport, Tennessee. Sherri is married and still active on the independant circuit. She's planning on opening a women's wrestling school.

Can you tell me which is the smallest wrestling match in history?

By smallest I am guessing you mean "shortest." If my memory serves me correctly (from what I know), the shortest match I have ever seen was four seconds, The Rock vs. Bossman at the 1998 Survivor Series.

Note: If anyone remembers a shorter match than this, please e-mail me.

What was the shortest WWF/E title match of all-time?

Wow, what is it with the questions about short matches today? The shortest WWE world title match would have to be when Diesel defeated Bob Backlund in Madison Square Garden in 8 seconds.

I've been pondering this for a while now. If the first Wrestlemania was in 1985 how is it the 20th anniversary is in 2004? Wouldn't 20 years be 2005?

Let's count them all shall we?

#1 (WrestleMania 1 in 1985)
#2 (WrestleMania 2 in 1986)
#3 (WrestleMania 3 in 1987)
#4 (WrestleMania 4 in 1988)
#5 (WrestleMania 5 in 1989)
#6 (WrestleMania 6 in 1990)
#7 (WrestleMania 7 in 1991)
#8 (WrestleMania 8 in 1992)
#9 (WrestleMania 9 in 1993)
#10 (WrestleMania 10 in 1994)
#11 (WrestleMania 11 in 1995)
#12 (WrestleMania 12 in 1996)
#13 (WrestleMania 13 in 1997)
#14 (WrestleMania 14 in 1998)
#15 (WrestleMania 15 in 1999)
#16 (WrestleMania 16 in 2000)
#17 (WrestleMania 17 in 2001)
#18 (WrestleMania 18 in 2002)
#19 (WrestleMania 19 in 2003)

And the 20th WrestleMania is in 2004... Anniversary is different, it's celebrating the amount of years. 1985-2005 is 20 years. But they are celebrating the 20th WM in 2004.
