Nobody needs to tell Steve Austin how to have a good time inside the hallowed, historic halls of Madison Square Garden. The icon looked happy, healthy and excited to interact with The OC, Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman and more on Raw this past Monday, and he even got to show Kevin Owens how its done by handing out some Stunners.

Post-show, he probably concocted an ingenious escape plan from the Garden via some underground tunnel.

Don't laugh, because that creative spirit from 'Stone Cold' is just one of the facts in this week's article. There are nine others, including Torrie Wilson's dad being a cheeky so-and-so, Hornswoggle wrestling on television when he was a kid, Beth Phoenix being unable to hide her delight at the 2010 Royal Rumble and exactly who convinced Dixie's parents to purchase TNA.

If you're hungry for more facts, then you'll love a story about Hostel director Eli Roth's brief flirtation with pro wrestling (a story that proves how hot WCW was) and why Teal Piper despised the 'Hulkamania' crusade when all her school friends loved it...
