Hogan gets killed by Earthquake in 1990. This sarcastic asshole humors us.
Interesting thing about this one is that it seems to refer to the "first Ultimate Warrior died" rumor, and this is in 1990. So that rumor did not come from people thinking that a new guy was playing the character when he returned in 1992.
ECW, November 11, 1994: Attitude Is Everything. Includes Dave Scherer as a usenet troll, I do believe.
It's amazing to think that after the first Wrestlemania, a person got online to post the results. I thought I'd research the situation of the web back in 1985...
- Usenet is only 6 years old. - The first emoticon was used 3 years prior. - The IP system became universal 2 years prior. - Domain names were invented the year prior. - The first web site was 6 years away. - IRC was 3 years away. - The World Wide Web, and commercial internet didn't exist yet. So the people online prior to the early 90's were university students. - I found a figure of 30,000 internet users worldwide in 1987. So it's less than that in 1985.
