  6. correct!! :)

    There may well be more wrestling / fireworks crossovers, but both hobbies / fandoms are quite niche! :D Ric Flair [sic] ! :p Dynamite Kid not exactly a firework, Owen Hart was sometimes called the Rocket .

    on the off chance that anyone does know any more, lemme know! We do a family quiz on WhatsApp

    Maybe the other one I was holding at the time would be more appropriate here? And possibly the kind of name a wrestler might choose to include as part of theirs. ;)
    The photo's still on the forum. Just search for the one you mentioned. :whistle:

    The obvious wrestler for this thread would be Big Daddy..... but then the firework would have to be named after the wrestler. Showing my age, perhaps. Those were the days when I followed wrestling. Just someone please tell me there's a firework called "Giant Haystacks"

  12. another trivia, but not wrestling- where is the quote from: Bonus point if you can make the link with the trivia question in the opening post..

  13. The quote is from "I'm your Man" by Leonard Cohen. Now, here's a hell of tenuous link but:
    Cherry Bomb = song by the Runaways
    Cohen wrote "The Ballad of the Runaway Horse"

    Failing that, is there a wrestler called Suzanne....? :p

  15. Another one if people like music trivia - how many songs can you name where the song title is never mention in the lyrics? One of them at least is arguably the greatest pop-rock song of alltimeā€¦

    PS: sorry I know this is off tpic! ie not fireworks
