-According to a quiz on sporcle.com (http://www.sporcle.com/games/Ivan82/...who_beat_Hogan), only 9 men have ever beat Hulk Hogan on PPV in WWE and WCW (Warrior, Undertaker, Yokozuna, The Giant, Piper, Sting, Flair, The Rock, and Angle).

-I don't know if this is true, but I remember reading that Piper's loss to Bret Hart at Wrestlemania 8 was the first time he had been pinned in many years.

-"The Game" gimmick was originally meant for Owen Hart.

-Randy Savage is a 6-time World Champion and all 6 of his title losses have been to either Hogan or Flair.
Technically the '97 Rumble didn't have a winner I thought.
