Pro Wrestling Since 1997



Welcome to another edition of GERWECK.NET Trivia. We start with a review of last week’s question.

Q) Who was the first Japanese wrestler to hold the NWA World Title? For bonus points can you tell me who he defeated and in what year the match took place?

A) Giant Baba, who defeated Jack Brisco in 1974.

Congratulations to those who answered correctly. MC Live has extended his lead over Andrew Davis to 7 points, but the gap back to third-placed Vivian is closing.

Onto this week’s question


The upcoming week sees the birthday of former WWE wrestler and executive, Shane McMahon. McMahon won the WWF European Title on an episode of RAW in 1999, but would later ‘abandon’ the title by hiding it in his bag. Can you tell me who his last televised title defense was against and at what event it was held?

Good luck!

    Wrestlemania 15 against X-Pac

  2. Andrew Davis says:

    Though that’s unless you count the UK only ppv WWF No Mercy (UK) in May 1999, which never aired state side

  3. JD Storm says:

    @AndrewDavis, i would actually like to see a ruling on this. are we counting anything that happens live in the States & Canada? or do we count televised matches in the UK, as well?

    that would make a huge difference on what answer is correct.

  4. Andrew Davis says:

    @JD: If it aired on tv in the UK I would assume technically it would count. The way the question is worded. I gave both b/c I am sure 99% of readers aren’t even aware there was a UK only ppv in May 1999. As these events almost never get any kind of mention stateside. Unless something major happens at said event.

  5. Jamie says:

    If the match was televised, it counts. That’s all I’m saying

  6. MC Live says:

    The Uk only No Mercy where he successfully defended against X-Pac

  7. Dan Lovato says:

    Vs Xpac in the UK!
