Huge fan of the podcast. Some of my favourite moments, though, are when things get a bit off-topic, and occasionally, John will toss something out there that is close to the truth, but not necessarily perfectly accurate. When I notice one of these moments, I generally make this face.
I was hoping that this could be a repository for such moments.
For instance, tonight's Review-A-Raw had John refer to AJ's new look as a nod to Bon Scott of AC/DC, whom John identified as the band's bassist.
In reality, Bon Scott was the original vocalist for AC/DC.
The member of the band John's thinking of is Angus Young, AC/DC's longtime lead guitarist, famous for his ever-present schoolboy uniform.

There's a difference between Pollock making innocent mistakes and JBL knowing he's not telling the truth. I remember listening to a recent review where John and Wai were talking about John Hirschbeck as the umpire who died during a baseball game and yelling at my computer that it was John McSherry, Hirschbeck is who Alomar spit on...but Wai looked it up and corrected it.

In the classic King of the Ring '94 Review-A-Wai, John describes a WWF promo for the "New Generation", mentioning that to symbolize the "old generation", they show footage of "the first plane that the Orville Brothers flew".
John was probably thinking of the Wright Brothers, Orville and Wilbur, who are credited with building and flying the world's first airplane in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903.

During the Survivor Series '92 Review-A-Wai, John and Wai crack wise about Tatanka's dressing room, saying he must've built it himself, and that it resembles a sauna.
In actuality, it was supposed to be a sweat lodge, a traditional method of purification used by countless Native American and First Nations tribes and clans, including the Lumbee tribe that Tatanka is descended from (although Tatanka is a Lakota word for buffalo).
Also, Tatanka and the sweat lodge was the subject of a WWF Magazine article in the summer of '92.
