10 strange (but true) WrestleMania facts

Taking a ride with a WCW legend

The upstart tag team of rockabillies known as Rhythm & Blues built a great deal of excitement for their live performance at WrestleMania VI. Under the guidance of “Colonel” Jimmy Hart, the duo of The Honky Tonk Man & Greg Valentine spared no expense to ensure a successful debut of their hit song, “Hunka Hunka Honky Love,” before the capacity crowd of 67,678 fans in attendance at SkyDome on April 1, 1990.

While most revelers remember the tag team’s backup singers, “The Honky-ettes,” or their pink Cadillac, they definitely know the Rhythm & Blues chauffer the best. That’s because the non-descript wheelman later wowed fans around the world as three-time WCW Champion Diamond Dallas Page. DDP navigated the narrow aisle in SkyDome to ensure the band arrived at ringside in style, but needed to wait nearly 12 years before hearing his own name called on The Grandest Stage of Them All at WrestleMania X8.
