Counting is fun!
Counting is fun, and WWE likes to do fun things like help you count. And so it is that Santino Marella, aka The Main Reason Dusty Still Watches Wrestling, is going for the Honky Tonky Man’s streak of “62” wins. Never mind that Honky *had* to have gotten more than 62 wins to have retained his title for as long as he did. (Then again, maybe he lost by countout and DQ a bunch of times and his actual win total really was 62. You know what? Here’s a challenge to our loyal readers: go to http://thehistoryofwwe.com/, go to Ring Results for WWE and track Honky’s title reign history as best you can. We’d love to hear the results without having to do the actual legwork.)
In any event, Santino continued his streak with a hard fought victory over Eric’s boy D-Lo Brown this past Monday on Raw. Here’s hoping this becomes a Goldberg-like streak and he’s up to 35 wins by next week. Stunt Granny will track this story as it develops. – Dusty
I think Honky held the title for 62 weeks, not 62 wins. Thus the Honk-o-Meter will go up to 3, 3 peanut butter sandwiches next week.
