As for the wrestlers: Kevin Nash, a native of Detroit Michigan, is currently signed to a five-year contract with WWE under their Legends program. Nash has wrestled under several ring names, but is best known by his real name in World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), and in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Between the WWE, WCW, and TNA, Nash has won a total of 21 championships, including being a six-time world champion and a 12-time tag team champion between the three promotions. Nash was also a member of The Kliq, a group that included Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman. In addition, he is one of the three founding members of the New World Order (nWo), along with Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall.
King Kong Bundy is not only a wrestler, but has also spent time in standup comedy and acting. Bundy achieved mainstream recognition in the World Wrestling Federation in the 1980s and 1990s: He headlined WrestleMania 2 in 1986 against Hulk Hogan in a steel cage match for the WWF Championship, and at WrestleMania XI in 1995, he was the fourth victim of what would become The Undertaker's famous 21-match undefeated WrestleMania streak. WWF play-by-play commentator Gorilla Monsoon dubbed Bundy "The Walking Condominium", in reference to his size.
Terri Runnels is a woman of many talent but she began her professional wrestling career in World Championship Wrestling as Miss Alexandra York, manager of the York Foundation. She later joined the World Wrestling Federation, where she worked for eight years. In the early years of her career with the WWF, she was a member of the Pretty Mean Sisters alliance. Subsequently, she had an on-screen rivalry with The Kat, managed The Radicalz stable, and worked as a host and interviewer. During her time with the WWF, she briefly held the WWE Hardcore Championship, her only championship during her career.
Matt Hardy first gained notoriety as a member of a tag team duo with his brother Jeff. As a tag team wrestler, Hardy is an eight-time champion, having held six World Tag Team Championships, one WWE Tag Team Championship, and one WCW Tag Team Championship. Apart from his success as a tag team wrestler, Hardy is one-time World Champion having won the ECW Championship in 2008.
