• Former WWF Wrestler Comments On Playing Dominos With The Undertaker & Kane Pounding Him
During a recent appearance on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, former two time WWF Hardcore Champion Pete Gas talked about playing Dominos with The Undertaker:
“It was sink or swim, we knew some things like you shake everyone’s hand when you get there and when you leave, that respect, you show it or you won’t last too long.
As far as Taker goes, he was always there and helpful. I played Dominos against Taker and Kane. I started off just watching and then they needed someone to fill in and I covered and was with Godfather and I still have the same set now.
We would be playing and one of the stories in the book I talk about one game. Every time Kane threw a domino in this specific game I would score points off him and Taker was getting on at him, and we are getting close and he looks at me and said if you score on me again I will chase you and beat your a**.
He puts it down and Taker knows so finally I slammed it and said ‘Domino Motherf***er’ and he chased me and he wouldn’t stop and he caught me and pounded me. That’s the part you miss the most.”

Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho revealed how much revenue he generated for New Japan Pro Wrestling with his match with Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12:
Very few wrestlers nowadays are legitimate draws; it’s the companies on the marquee that bring people in. That said, I’d like to know how many people bought tickets for #wrestlekingdom12 or subscribed to #NewJapanWorld after @IAmJericho came on board. I know I did.
