Sports Illustrated's web site mentions that several Detroit pro sports stars attended Wrestlemania 23 including members of the Tigers, Detroit Piston Chris Weber, and Red Wing goalie Dominick Hasek.
In today's Yahoo! Top Searches, Lilian Garcia managed to crack the top 10 chart, the first WWE Diva to ever achieve that. Lilian trailed The Bachelor in first place, Linkin Park in second and Knight Rider in third. Her angle with Vince McMahon where he was hiding under her skirt only to be removed by Bobby Lashley to give fans a great shot of Lilian sparked searches for the RAW ring announcer, even surpassing searches for 'WWE' for the day. Yes folks, hot ladies in underwear are popular.
