Neidhart had been fired and was filling contractual obligations, which including jobbing the tag titles to another team. In what should have been a minor point, the top rope broke at one point during the match. The Rockers defended the titles for a week after that, but then Neidhart was re-hired by the WWF, and Vince McMahon decided that the title change never actually happened, in one of the goofier decisions of the 90s, and one of many to affect the careers of Shawn and Bret. As an explanation, a story was sent to Pro Wrestling Illustrated about the rope break causing an "unfair working environment" for both teams, and hence the title reign was annulled. This was simply to cover up for the fact that they reported the title change as fact a week prior and needed a reason to no longer report it as such. The title change was edited out of the Main Event broadcast, and thus went down in history that the Rockers never had the belt.

  3. Bob Backlund has the longest interval between WWE title reigns in history, around 11 years, between December 26, 1983 when he lost to the Iron Sheik after his manager Arnold Skaaland threw in the towel when he was in the Camel Clutch and November 23, 1994, when he defeated Bret Hart after Bret's mother threw in the towel when Backlund had Hart trapped in the Crossface Chickenwing. Backlund has also lost the fastest match for the WWE title ever, when Diesel beat him in 8 seconds at Madison Square garden in November 26, 1994.

  10. Don't know if this one has been mentioned, but Rock only pinned Austin twice in his career - Survivor Series 2001 and Wrestlemania XIX - which means the only time Rock ever beat Austin in a one on one match was Austin's retirement match at WMXIX. Rock never beat Austin for the world title, or any other title.
