Haystack's horseshoe is upside down, maybe that why his luck ran out.

Yes! Can't forget about the ladies! For those of you who don't know, women's wrestling is rising fast, with the first all women's Royal Rumble match in just 25 days!
My personal favorites include:
Image
Alexa Bliss
Image
Charlotte Flair (oh that moonsault gets me every time!)
Image
Bayley

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly certain Pat Patterson was the first openly gay wrestler.

Well, Meltzer says he thinks Patterson came out in the early 70's, but Patterson himself says it was WWE's Legends House.

So we can probably credit Kanyon with being the first widely known gay wrestler on an active roster.

Poor Shockmaster/Tugboat.

Tugboat (real name Fred Ottman) was in Georgia Championship Wrestling earlier in his career as Siegfried. His manager said "Next week, Siegfried will lift a horse!" Well, Siegfried practiced lifting a horse, hurt his back, and didn't appear next week or probably until he went to the WWE.

Mick Foley & Jeff Hardy Are Donating Their Brains For Concussion Research

Mick Foley and Jeff Hardy have announced that they’ll be donating their brains for CTE research after their deaths.
For those who don’t know, CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) is a brain disease found in many athletes who have a history of concussions or taking hard hits to the head. Former WWE Superstar Chris Nowinski has been spearheading research on this issue after his wrestling career ended due to concussions.

Daniel Bryan medically cleared by WWE doctors to wrestle again!

Daniel Bryan's Story Is One Even Non-Wrestling Fans Should Know And Appreciate

WWE announced that Bryan has been medically cleared, two years after his retirement. To say the scene at last night's SmackDown Live, when Bryan came out to address the crowd, was emotional, would be a strong understatement. That's what happens when someone so likeable never gives up and fights for his dream.

What a great Wrestlemania! I particularly enjoyed:
Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka
AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Undertaker vs. John Cena
and Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey vs. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon
Have to say I pleasantly surprised by Rousey's performance. I wasn't sure what to expect from this former UFC fighter as she transitioned into WWE. However, I now believe she will be a breath of fresh air in WWE and women's wrestling as a whole!
