I'm rewatching the 2013 Rumble in the background this afternoon. I'm at a point where the ring has Chris Jericho, Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre, Kofi Kingston and Dolph Ziggler in it. Fascinating to look at it compared to eight years later, with two of those guys having risen to WWE Champion, two becoming top stars and arguably biggest names in another company they helped create... and Dolph Ziggler is in exactly the same position.

Dolph was a two time champion, so you could lump him in with Kofi and Drew there.

I wouldn't though, because both those reigns were in the dying days of the Big Gold Belt, not the WWE Title, and also both those reigns came before the 2013 Rumble, so he'd already peaked two years beforehand rather than reaching that level subsequently. No leniency for Ziggler.

EDIT: I just checked and actually his second reign was in spring 2013 so it did come after this. Oops. Still doesn't count, though.

Dolph Ziggler is not memorable

The thing with Chas & D'Lo winning the spot at the Rumble was weird. They were teaming as Rajah and Bajah under an Arab gimmick managed by Tiger Ali Singh. The pants, headdresses, bare chests but obviously Chas & D'Lo. They won a tag match on Heat, but I can't remember who it was against.

I don't think they had become Rajah and Bajah yet (I actually have no memory of that at all!) - they were a generic undercard tag team called Lo Down, and had a fun finish where Chaz would do a superplex, followed by D'Lo's Frog Splash. I'd only just started watching again, and thought they were pretty good, but when they got paired with Tiger Ali Singh it was a death sentence for them.

Neither do I, though I have seen it referred to as being their names under that gimmick before. I fully remember them being managed by Singh & changing from the knock-off Adidas trackies to wearing the turbans etc, but they were still Chas & D'lo, Lo Down as far as I remember.

I wonder if "Rajah & Bajah" were (somewhat insensitive) throwaway dismissive nicknames used in a promo/on commentary (I can hear it coming out of the mouth of Lawler, Jericho or The Rock for example) that turned into a bit of a Mandela Effect thing?

I can fully believe it being a commentary thing, but I could swear (as a regular viewer of WWF Metal) that either they were announced as Rajah and Bajah, or that Singh referred to them as such.

The latest video I can find of them on YouTube is the week after the 2001 Rumble, they're fully into the gimmick now, but don't have the names. I don't think this was their last appearance though, I'm sure I remember them facing Rikishi & Haku at some point after this. 

Anyway, enjoy Tazz at his most culturally sensitive.

Side-note, Tiger Ali Singh's music is ... actually a bit of a banger. I could have got behind Jinder Mahal a bit more if they'd recycled this for him.

Cagematch doesn't have either Rajah or Bajah as a pseudonym for D'Lo, so it really seems like a weird memory hole thing. I've seen someone suggest that they used that name in a match on Heat or something, but I can't see any evidence of it anywhere.
