--During bowling's U.S. Open, whenever big pro wrestling fan Pete Weber scored a strike, they played HHH's theme music. He won the title throwing a strike on his last throw to win 215-214 in the championship game and they played the song for about three minutes. He also started yelling at a fan who was heckling him. Weber was the oldest bowler to ever win and used to do the RVD thumbs when RVD was a big deal in wrestling. (Thanks to Garry Kamansky)
