Take a trip back to a memorable timeline in sports entertainment with the most important stories reported as fact in the journalistic world of pro wrestling dirt sheets.
Since our first edition of Dirt Sheet History was so well received, we decided to bring it back and make it a regular feature! The first edition was about Wrestlemania XX in 2004. It’s unsure whether this will be done in a timeline sense going forward like this one will be or if we’ll stick to themes like the past one breaking down the month of Wrestlemania XX but either way, it will be fun.
Since we scouted parts of 2004, we followed through with the rest of the big scoops from that year. These are the funniest, most interesting and most relevant stories reported on the dirt sheets in 2004.
* As we have reported earlier, Maven had knee surgery on January 27th and is expected to be back in time for WrestleMania 20. WWE is ready to give Maven a push leading into WrestleMania. Before his injury, he appeared to be turning heel and is expected to become the newest member of Evolution when he returns.
* Ed “Brutus the Barber Beefcake” Leslie caused an anthrax scare last night in Boston. Leslie had been working as a fare collector at a subway and left a bag of cocaine unattended. The first assumption by those who found it was that the powder was anthrax. Leslie later admitted that the powder was cocaine and that it was his.
