[This Day in WCW History] Brian Knobbs vs Norman Smiley - WCW Mayhem [November 21st, 1999]
A dumb bout that might not be remembered as one of the greatest hardcore matches of all time, but it was a pretty entertaining was to fill some time during the PPV. Despite the fact that Smiley was saddled with gimmick of being a cowardly wimp, he started to be over with the crowd around this time and actually went over Knobbs to become the first ever WCW Hardcore Champion.
I’d suggest that Smiley close his five-hole….but looks like he has more daunting things to worry about.
No truth to the rumor that Dave Thomas asked to always play with a square puck.
"We’re going to go down there and score on that cotton-pickin’ goalie or so help me…."

"Why is one of your defensemen saying ‘rabble, rabble’ and stealing some of the fans hamburgers?? I don’t think he gets the idea of this night."
"HAHAHA…oh, I don’t want anyone to see me liking ‘Two and a Half Men.’"
In an effort to distract Kari Lehtonen, the Calgary Flames played Finnish cartoons of his youth on the jumbotron. Sadly, Karri Ramo was in the other net and let up several goal at the same time.
Remember that time Ryan Miller and the Sabres were in the same hotel as a furry convention??

Okay, but here’s where it gets weird: Someone snapped this photo on the right and posted it on Twitter, a shot of Sabres goalie Ryan Miller posing with two furries in Ducks and Sharks jerseys. And here’s where it gets REALLY weird: The Ducks jersey on the left? It’s No. 18, which was last worn by Drew Miller, RYAN MILLER’S BROTHER.
You can’t make this stuff up. Not only does this person own a Drew Miller jersey, but they somehow run into his brother while wearing one over a fox costume? I can’t wrap my brain around how this possibly could have happened.
If they knew this worked out well together, why did Pittsburgh have to make the Furries postpone their convention during Draft Weekend??
Ladies and Gentlemen, Team Russia.
i’m nearly dying of laughter because I’m listening to this song as i’m watching this gif and it’s TOO MUCH. YOU GUYS. YOUR DANCE WILL LOOK JUST AS COOL IF YOU TAKE YOUR PADS OFFFFF.
Looks like the Harlem Shake FINALLY hits Russia, seven years ahead of schedule.
