Seen it less with Sean Michaels though.

Sean Michaels is a real-life 90's porn star. There was a lawsuit between him and WWE over the use of the name, oddly enough.

WWE refs are always taught that a count-out stands for both men - so if it's broken by one, you should continue the count on the other. In practice, I see it the other way around far more often.

In kayfabe, I reckon it depends if there's been an offensive move on the outside. Like if the heel twats the babyface with a chair on 8 and gets back in, that inteferes with the babyface's ring-out time so it restarts it when the heel comes back in.

Once, they seemed to change the rules entirely and just have separate counts for the two wrestlers. I forget the match now, but I am fairly confident it was Evan Bourne winning vs someone higher up the card than him. It really annoyed me at the time, like when the ref threatens a DQ in submission-only matches.

Does WWF/WWE booking get any more inconsistent than the 1993 KOTR qualifiers where they had Mr Perfect and Doink draw twice before a third match sorted it out, while Crush and HBK drew and were both eliminated to conveniently set up the IC title match?

King of the Ring was a shit idea anyway. Doing a tournament just because it's the name of the PPV, rather than it building organically from eight wrestlers being interested in the monarchy.

Don't be daft, they'd already had 30 people wrestling for her majesty's approval every January.

with everyone on JR generally, but i'm watching a RAW with a TIT match on, and JR introduces the prizes that's supposed to be along the lines of

 

"the glamorous managerial stylings of terri runnels"

 

type thing, but he lets it out in a way that has the purest essence 'they get this auld boiler and a hundred ton nicker'
