  1. What WWF PPVs were  blacked out in the city they took place? I know for sure that WM3 was, I'm fairly sure WM6 was too. Was WM8 blacked out in Indianapolis? Given they were running a huge stadium at a time the business was down, I suspect it would have been.

    SummerSlam '92 was effectively blacked out in the UK, not being shown on Sky Sports until a couple of days later (it aired 1 day later in the US).

    I don't know about Royal Rumble '97, I know they had to paper the hell out of the Alamodome to draw a respectable crowd.

    Guessing that's because there's no one out there wiiling to do their ridiculous beyond-Olympic-level demands of the host countries.  

    Meanwhile the confirmed 2030 bidders: 

    • Morocco (lost the '26 cup to North America)
    • Southern South America (ARG/URU/CHI/PAR)
    • Southeastern Europe (ROM/GRE/SER/BUL)
    • Iberian Europe (POR/ESP)

    Still kicking around the concept of bidding (which means they'll go for '34 when this one falls through):

    • Saudi Arabia (with Egypt and Morocco OR Italy(?))
    • Northern South America (COL/PER/ECU)
    • China
    • West Asia (ISR/UAE/BAH)
    • Australia & Indonesia
    • Cameroon 
    • Both Koreas & Japan 

     

    I can't see how Morocco or Cameroon could possibly hold a 48 team World Cup on their own. 

    I also can't fathom any kind of working relationship between North and South Korea lasting for the decade or so between the announcement of the hosts and the tournament itself taking place. Unless things change drastically politically wise in the next few years.

    I predict Iberian Europe for '30 and China for '34

  3. Man Utd are getting close to finishing the season with a negative goal difference for the first time since the Premier League started (89/90 was the last time).

     

    Meanwhile, Tony Khan's Fulham have been promoted to the Premier League.

  4. Did Ross Hart ever wrestle in Stampede? Only match of his I've ever seen his he and Owen vs Fit Finlay and Rocky Moran in England, and I've heard Bret refer to him as not having been a wrestler. I know Dean never wrestled, Wayne only refereed that I know of.

    BJ Annis married into the family and I've heard him described as a bodybuilder who wrestled occasionally which makes me think he was pretty bad. 

    Ben Bassarab was another in-law, he wasn't really bad, just unremarkable.

    I always thought Kendall was at least decent.

    Chris von Erich was the first name I thought of when I saw the title, guy was just cursed to be the least athletic member of the family.

    Given that his two brothers achieved decent success as tag wrestlers, the third Laurinitis brother who became the Terminator must feel disappointing.

    The Bellas married into the Laurinaitis family so they should be frontrunners.

    I am torn between Honky Tonk Man and Brian Christopher.

    "King" Carl Fergie was another Lawler cousin who was worse than Honky or Sexay. Not sure that if he was worse than Kevin Christian.

     

    some others that come to mind:

    Jamie Dundee of the Dundee/Eaton family.

    Fred Ottman of the extended Rhodes family

    Horace Hogan of the Hogans/Awesomes
