    I'm going to guess she was 32 yesterday, right? I seem to remember her being a little bit younger than me, but not by that much. I hope she wins.

    Ironically Ronda Rousey's birthday is today, 2 days after Becky's (same year also)

    Yes I remembered that they were both born around the same time as each other. I love Ronda as well, always did, even before she came to WWE.

    Remember watching this on tv and taping it on VHS. Most watched wrestling even in television history happened on this date.

    I remember this.  Watching Hogan slam my beloved Giant was crazy.

    This is also the Wrestlemania where Brutus got his "Barber" nickname.

    That Becky Lynch is a very fine looking woman.

    This angle took place before I began watching, I think I was only a year old at the time or something. However, I always remember reading about this, and then going back and watching it. It has to be one of the most ingenious storylines that the WWF ever broadcast. I just can't imagine a title reign lasting 4 years in today's landscape. It's a pity that André didn't get an actual reign with the title at some point though I think.

    Yeah nowhere really to put Charlotte. Although I guess you could have had her against Asuka.

    Also congrats to The Revival ob finally winning the RAW tag team belts. Was never a huge fan of them but they deserved to win.

    I watched his WWF World title victory against Ivan Koloff with a friend earlier. It's crazy how rabid the audience are for it. It couldn't work today.

    It's hard to find with good audio, but if you ever watch Koloff's title victory over Sammartino, you would have thought you were watching a funeral from the crowd's reaction.

    Yes I have seen it before somewhere, probably You Tube. But like most things from that era, the audio kind of swells and drops off in places. It's one event that everyone says the same thing about in interviews and books though. You could hear a pin drop. I believe it was in Baltimore?

    No it was MSG. You're thinking of Sammartino's second time losing the title when he lost it to Superstar Graham. That was in Baltimore.

    Cool. I think that might be the one that I have seen footage of then. I read about Ivan Koloff's victory before and heard it reviewed on podcasts.

    I read on Cultaholic that Arn Anderson was fired due to an incident that happened at a show which Vince McMahon blamed him for. It's a shame.

    ell that was one of the better RAW's in a while. Roman Reigns returns and announces he's in remission from leukemia. And the ending when Batista "attacked" Flair. Didn't quite see that coming. Knew something was gonna happen cause of the time but wasn't expecting that.

    I'm all in for Batista vs. Triple H. However, I find it interesting that Hunter is being framed as the babyface. I'm wondering is this one of the years where he puts himself over at WrestleMania? He hasn't won a match on the biggest show of the year since he faced Sting at 31 in 2015.

    The Triple H matches at WrestleMania are often given a lot of time and effort, due to the fact that one of the bosses is participating in them. There's usually a storyline, as opposed to 4 guys thrown into a match for a midcard title.

    Since DX are getting in and the Four Horsemen are in. Do you think the NWO get in? Hulk deserves to be a 2 time entry along with Flair

    Maybe in a few years. Only problem with putting them in is there were like 30 different wrestlers in there, but I guess go with the original of Nash Hall and Hogan?
