The following questions were answered by Paul Nemer and Graham Cawthon of History of WWF.
In 1993, Yokozuna did some event on the 4th of Luly on who can slam him. He challenged all Athletes, whether they be WWF superstars or American Athletes. Only Lex Luger could slam him. In reality, was he really the only one who could? Because I saw some of the American Athletes and WWF superstars almost do it.
The event was on the USS Intrepid, which was docked at New York City. It was pretty much a whole setup to help put Lex Luger over and turn him into a babyface. Shortly after was when the whole Lex Express thing started. As far as Luger slamming Yokozuna, he couldn't do it without Yokozuna's help that's for sure. If you have it on tape or have other events where Luger slammed Yoko, look at it carefully, and you'll see what I mean.
How many matches did the Ultimate and Undertaker have and who won them? I know that Undertaker and Ultimate Warrior had a match at Rampage 1991.
Yea, they fought at Rampage in Toronto, but they never fought on TV. Although they fought many times from April to August of 1991, but like I said, they were all house shows. To check the match events and house show results for 1991, Click Here.
I keep on hearing rumors that Goldberg got in a fight with HHH in a gym before Goldberg came to the WWE. Is that true?
Actually it was at a convention of some sort. Triple H was signing autographs with Stephanie and Goldberg started yelling at Triple H and basically calling him out over some comments Triple H said about Goldberg in an interview. Words were exchanged, but that's about it. There was nothing physical.
I recently read that Jay Youngblood died from drug use. I also have been told that he died in the ring of a heart attack. Which story is true?
Jay Youngblood was injured during a tag match. He suffered a ruptured spleen, and then had three heart attacks. He died in New Zealand. He was only 30 years of age.
This has been bothering me for a while. When and how did Sting turn into his now well-known black and white face paint look from his old colorful look. My friend told me he thinks that it was like the Undertaker where he was gone for about a year and came back as a new character. Is that true or was there a storyline that caused the transformation.
Here is how the storyline went... There was the "fake" Sting who joined the nWo. Luger and others approached the "real" Sting, accused him of joining the nWo, but Sting told them that it wasn't him. There was the WarGames match setup for Fall Brawl of 1996. Before the match if my memory serves correctly, Luger basically told Sting that he doesn't know if he should trust him in the match that night. Sting once again told Luger that it's not him, it was someone else. In the WarGames match... the real Sting was there, and so was the fake Sting, which was proof that Sting wasn't in the nWo. Sting didn't forgive Luger and others and "lost his faith" in WCW and its fans. After Fall Brawl, the nWo offered a spot for Sting in the nWO, and Sting said that they couldn't afford him. Sting would be shown almost every week on Nitro hiding up in the rafters. After a while Sting came back and feuded with the nWo.
