Manuel R. Batista sent this in: Perhaps I’m wrong, but I think the WWE took a cheap shot at Goldberg on their article named “25 Moments that Changed WWE History”. On number 16, while talking about THE ROCK’s acting career, they say “The Rockʼs acting career shot into the Hollywood A-List stratosphere, and current WWE Superstars are getting the chance to grapple with roles that are a bit meatier than Cyborg No. 2.” (I guess this refers to Goldberg’s role in Jean Claude Van Damme’s movie “Universal Soldier: The Return (1999)”, maybe I’m mistaken. Maybe it’s Chris Jericho, on “Android Apocalypse”. I don’t know. I just thought I would pass this along, for your amusement.

David Herrera sent this in: WWE Magazine has an article titled “25 Moments that Changed WWE History”. On number five it says that Gorgeous George inspired many stars but not Steve Blackman. Here it is: “5. A Man Named George Turns Gorgeous – George Wagner began wrestling in the 1940s, but initially, he had little success standing out. So while working in the AWA, Wagner reinvented himselfâ<80>¦as Gorgeous George. He grew out his hair, dyed it platinum blond and pinned it with gold-plated bobby pins; he wore elaborate robes to the ring, and dubbed himself â<80><9c>The Human Orchid,â<80> making his entrances alongside a butler who would spray opponents with perfume or disinfectant. Georgeâ<80><99>s over-the-top persona and effeminate behavior drove fans into a frenzy, and succeeded in making him the biggest wrestling icon at the dawn of the TV Age. His legacy lives on, as his larger-than-life blueprint is the basis for many Superstar identities, from Flair to Hogan to The Rock. But not Steve Blackman.”
