The following questions were answered by Paul Nemer:
Who was Debra McMichael married to before she married Steve Austin? Are they still married?
Debra was married to former NFL player, Steve McMichael. You might remember Steve "Mongo" McMichael from his WCW stay. He and Jeff Jarrett formed a tag team and were managed by Debra. Steve had a brief stint as a commentator on Nitro. As for Debra and Steve Austin, they are now divorced.
Who was that guy who managed Shawn Michaels in 1996?
That was Jose Lothario. Lothario was the one who trained Shawn Michaels. Jose came in the WWE picture when Michaels was scripted to win the World Wrestling Federation championship at WrestleMania XII. "Shawn Michaels' boyhood dream" quest of winning the title started and Jose was there by his side all the way.
Before joining the WWF, didn't The Ultimate Warrior wrestle somewhere under the name "The Dingo Warrior?"
Yes he did. Shortly after he and Sting split up (They were a tag team called The Blade Runners), Warrior went to the World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW), and that's when he had the Dingo Warrior gimmick for a short while.
What was Bret Hart's win-loss standing at Wrestlemania?
Bret Hart has 7 wins and 6 losses at WrestleManias. (I counted the Battle Royal losses too.) Let me add that Bret Hart is the only wrestler so far to have competed in 12 consecutive WrestleManias. He's been away for 8 years now and still holds that record for most consecutive WrestleManias.
- Mania 2 - Battle Royal, Andre eliminated Bret to win. (Loss)

For years a friend of mine and I have disagreed. He posed the trivia question to me who beat Tatanka and gave him his first loss, I responded with Ludvig Borga, he was quick to correct me and said Mr. Hughes? I think it's ridiculous but he swears by the answer is it true?
Your friend is wrong. Ludvig Borga ended Tatanka's two-year winning streak.
Who were the oddities, and who played them?
Here is a list of each and every person that was in the stable:
- Golga (John Tenta, AKA Earthquake)
