From Portland to the WWWF, the AWA to WCW – Rick Martel left a lasting impression on the wrestling world as both a tag team and singles star.
Now, days away from the 2010 Royal Rumble, you can take home a 2-disc DVD shoot interview with the “ironman” of the 1991 event held at the Miami Arena (establishing a new record by lasting 52 minutes and 30 seconds).
Hear all about Martel’s early days in the industry, teaming with Tony Garea, facing Buddy Rose, winning the AWA World Title, WrestleRock, Strike Force, the Hart Foundation, the Arrogance spray can, Jake Roberts, Shawn Michaels, Tatanka, and more.

About The History of WWE
The History of WWE.com (http://www.thehistoryofwwe.com) was created in February 2002 with the intent of documenting in detail all the in-ring action of the WWE dating back to its inception in 1963. Over the years, the website has grown to include WCW and ECW results, thousands of newspaper clippings and promotional advertisements, match listings for WWE home videos and DVD releases, a thriving message board, title histories, audio interviews, columns, and reviews. As of July 2009, the site has expanded to also feature Jim Crockett Promotions results dating back to 1983.
The website has attracted praise from wrestling journalists (“An amazing and excellent resource that I use almost daily to double check facts.” – Mike Johnson, PWInsider.com), book authors (“Invaluable” – Michael Krugman, Andre the Giant: A Legendary Life), and wrestlers themselves (“We love your site.” – Jimmy “Boogie Woogie Man” Valiant).
