    In the 2005 WWE Tag Title match, it was Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam instead of Rene Dupree and Kenzo. I remember because Rey and RVD won the titles three days before Armageddon 2004, and this was RVD’s last match for over a year

  2. Today is also the birthday of Abdullah the Butcher. He’s 71.

    Thanks both – Criss, I’d read the wrong entry on my list of champions and CM, you’ve just discovered a typo, I had him on the 21st
