10 Wrestling Facts We Didn't Know Last Week (Jan 16)

Which former WCW peer couldn't believe Sting was losing at WrestleMania?

When pro wrestling fans discuss their favourite factions from years gone by, The Brood isn't always one that comes up in conversation. More often than not, groups such as the New World Order, Four Horsemen and D-Generation X are talked about, but the aura the vampire stable had during the 'Attitude' Era shouldn't be discounted. Both Edge and Christian as well as The Hardy Boyz are former members, and both reaped the benefits of early associations with Gangrel. David Heath - the man behind the creepy, blood-spitting gimmick - has said during shoot interviews that the character is one he had pitched for years to the WWF/WWE, long before he actually ended up playing it. In this week's article, Gangrel opens up to provide an eye-opening fact about The Brood which not many people will be aware of. Instead of Christian, just who was originally ear-marked to join Gangrel and Edge in The Brood? The answer may shock some. In addition to that, there are facts relating to Sting vs. Triple H at WrestleMania 31, John Cena, 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair and Chavo Guerrero. Further to that, find out which Hollywood star The Miz based his grating WWE TV persona on, and who was responsible for a recent announcing change in the company.
