- Anthony Carelli (aka Santino Marella) recalled a story on his podcast, Behind the Lights (airs on Impact Wrestling's Twitch every Wednesday at 4pm ET), of when he met Edge and Christian at a gym when he was first getting into pro wrestling.
"I get up to the gym, I come in and I'm like, 'S---, Edge is pretty big, Christian, not so much," Carelli said. "Because you have to compare yourself, I thought I was too small. [Edge] was taller than me. I'm 5'10" so I'm like, 'Geez.' ... I timed it, so he's having a drink [of water] and he gets up and I'm like, 'Hey, what's up man?' and I go, 'I'm a wrestler too.' [Laughs] He's like, 'Oh, that's cool man!' I said, 'Yeah, let me ask ya, when you speared Jeff Hardy off the ladder in the ring...did you practice that?'" [Laughs] It was a real 'mark out' moment, he remembers it, he laughs at it."
- At last night's UFC Utica event, Jose Torres defeated Jarred Brooks with a slam that was very close to Petey Williams' Canadian Destroyer, which you can see in the video below. MMA Journalist Ariel Helwani made a reference to the move on Twitter, but Petey Williams had to correct him on a few things (the company's name, his name, and that he's still an active wrestler).
Remember that wrestler in TNA who did the Canadian Destroyer? Tha''s what this finish looked like. Nuts.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) June 1, 2018
