These shows include the beginnings of current main roster talents such as The Wyatt Family, Neville, Sami Zayn, Big E, Seth Rollins and more.

There will also be a new collection added later today looking at the best WrestleMania matches from The Undertaker.

  1. It’s good to see WWE finally honor James “Toots” Mondt. It was he along with Roderick McMahon (Vince Jr.’s grandfather) who in 1952 founded Capitol Wrestling Corporation, the company known today as WWE. Vince Sr. (Roderick’s son) worked for Mondt and when Roderick died in 1954 Vince Sr. took over Roderick’s part of CWC. In 1963 Mondt and Vince Sr. broke away from the NWA which CWC had been a member of since it (meaning CWC) was founded and renamed the company the World Wide Wrestling Federation. In 1965 Mondt stepped down and Vince Sr. took full control of the WWWF. The rest, as they say, is history.

  2. Judy Grable was not part of the Glamour Girls. Judy Grable’s real name was Nellya Baughman, she was trained by the late, great WWE Hall of famer Fabulous Moolah and she retired in 1974. Leilani Kai’s Glamour Girls partner was Judy Martin.

  3. If you consider yourself a professional wrestling fan and haven’t heard of Dr. Jerry Graham, Toots Mondt, or Rikidozan, I suggest you start doing some research.
