The following questions were answered by Paul Nemer
.To my knowledge there has been 3 Iron Man matches in WWE history...Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels WM12, The Rock vs. HHH Judgement day 00, and Angle vs. Lesnar on SD 03. I've heard that that is false...that there were other previous iron man matches Could you please update me?
That is false. There were other non-televised WWF Iron Man matches. Some are splipping my mind right now, but I do remember when Bret Hart defeated Ric Flair in an iron man match in the early 90's at a house show. A couple of my buddies Ryan Droste and Graham Cawthon from History of WWE
site, sent in the additional WWF Iron Man matches:
WWF @ Chicago, IL - Rosemont Horizon - Aug. 6, 1989
Shawn Michaels & Marty Jannetty vs. Jacques & Raymond Rougeau (marathon match)
WWF @ Philadelphia, PA - Spectrum - Aug. 19, 1989
Shawn Michaels & Marty Jannetty defeated Jacques & Raymond Rougeau in sudden death overtime in a 60-minute marathon match
WWF @ Boston, MA - Boston Garden - Sept. 9, 1989
Shawn Michaels & Marty Jannetty defeated Jacques & Raymond Rougeau in a 60-minute marathon match, 3 falls to 2; Shawn Michaels clotheslined Jacques to win the deciding fall in overtime

The RevolutionI remember growing up watching a Tag team called the Powers of Pain. I always thought that they were the Road Warriors (LOD). I now understand that the Powers of Pain were someone else. Who were the Powers of Pain and where are they now?
The Powers of Pain were The Barbarian and Warlord, managed by Mr. Fuji. Many mistake them for the Legion of Doom, mainly because they put on the same face paint colors at times and stuff. The Barbarian and Warlord hadn't teamed up in years, until a couple of years ago, they reunited at an independant show and wrestled in a tag team match. Last I heard, they occasionally wrestle in Florida.Who was Glacier in WCW and what is he doing now?
Ray Lloyd, (Glacier) wrestled in WCW for a while, then faded way. He was brought back under another name, "Coach Buzz Stern" in the late 90's. Ray currently teaches a health and sex education course in Hightower Trail Middle School in Atlanta.why do they say that Booker T is the 5 time wcw champ instead of the world champ? Because they say Ric flair is the 16-time world champ and he won his titles in wcw as well.
Ric Flair held the NWA World title several times, which NWA later became WCW, he held the WCW title several times too, and the WWF title twice. They just say 16-time World heavyweight champion to combine all three. Booker T never won the world title when it was NWA, it was only WCW.A few years ago, there was a woman that turned up at Raven's hardcore matches called the Black Ninja. I was wondering was this Tori? And was her unmasking shown on TV?
Yes, that was Tori. She was unmasked by Molly Holly on Sunday Night Heat on March 11, 2001.
