WWE tribute to Smokin' Joe Frazier

The item that really made me post this was the mention that Joe Frazier "became the only celebrity ever to appear at both Starrcade and WrestleMania." That's an interesting piece of information there.

I'm not 100% it is true though. Depending on definition of celebrity it seems like at the very least Steve "Mongo" McMichael might qualify. From what I have always heard, he was in Lawrence Taylor's corner at WrestleMania XI and was of course a member of WCW's roster during the Monday Night Wars.

Either way, Frazier's wrestling involvement is really cool. The piece WWE did on him was a nice little tribute to a great champion.

RIP Mr. Frazier
