Art’s Raw Review #208 – May 5th, 1997

0 Submitted by on Sun, 18 September 2022, 12:00
Raw opens with a recap of last week, including that brief footage of Bret Hart’s knee surgery. Two things to note: Bret’s name is spelled wrong, and the footage that the announcers last week found so gruesome appears to consist of the nurse shaving Bret’s leg before the incision. Like last week, the recap includes time stamps for all the Continue Reading...

Art’s Raw Review #207 – April 28th, 1997

Brian Pillman opens the show, revealing that he is a sensitive and religious man, praying for Bret Hart’s recovery, for all the bloodthirsty fans who cheered Stone Cold’s actions, and for Steve Austin’s total destruction (i.e. death). He calls Bret the savior of the WWF and prays that fans would let him into their hearts. That’s H-E-A-R-T-S, hearts. He gets Continue Reading...

Art’s Raw Review #205 – April 14th, 1997

Note from Art: Way back in 2012, before I’d written word one on WrestleCrap, I started a blog called How Much Does This Guy Weigh? where, among other things, I reviewed every episode of Monday Night Raw from the beginning. It’s been nearly six years, but I’m happy to say that the reviews are back and will appear right here Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: House of Horrors – WrestleCrap Proudly Announces the 2017 Gooker Award Winner! (Well, Probably)

I’ve been running WrestleCrap.com since April 1, 2000.  In the seventeen year history of the site, I’ve always had a rock solid rule, a law if you will, that I would never, ever induct anything in the same calendar year that it happened.  When David Arquette won the WCW title, I shook my head but didn’t induct it until the Continue Reading...

Legends’ House Episode 9: Farewell My Friends

  Didn’t think I would make it, but here we are, on the ‘series finale’ of Legends’ House.  The most amazing part of this trek? It says that this is only episode 9.  NINE!  Each of those shows have been less than an hour. It’s felt like over 100. But hey, instead of making it feel even longer, let’s just Continue Reading...

Legends’ House Episode 8: Back In Pipers’ Pit

Well, it’s been a long, slow death march, but we’re almost at the end of Legends’ House. We’ve lived, we’ve groaned, we’ve checked the run time to see how much more we have to sit through. We’ve seen Tony Atlas make chitlins. We’ve seen Hillbilly Jim get waxed. We’ve seen Howard Finkel try to play tennis. We’ve seen Mean Gene Continue Reading...

Legends’ House episode 7: “Heartbreak Hotel”

8 Submitted by on Sat, 31 May 2014, 12:00
It’s time for another Legends’ House recap, and boy is it hard to believe this show is only on its seventh episode. I could have sworn the Legends moved into the house two whole years ago! The seventh episode opened with the Legends eating breakfast at a restaurant. Mean Gene, savvy to the reality TV genre, suspected that there is Continue Reading...

Legends House Episode 6: “L.A.A.R.P.ING”

  So I watched Legends House this week with the standard vitriol I generally do.  I won’t lie: I am not a fan of this show.  It’s weird – I feel like I SHOULD like it.  I love classic wrestling, like most of the guys…yet every week I feel stupider having watched it. I will say this however: I watched Continue Reading...

Legends House Episode 5: “Express Yourselves”

  Oh goodie…that hour I get dumber each week has arrived: Thursday, 8pm EST.  Thankfully, according to Wikipedia, we are now halfway through the series.  Of course, since the same site has declared me dead three times, I question if it is actually telling the truth here.   And to those curious if I am still amongst the living, I can inform Continue Reading...

It’s time for another edition of Legends’ House, and on tonight’s episode, what happens in Vegas… …may make you physically ill. Cue the opening credits. Speaking of which, has anyone noticed that the theme song is a knock-off of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”? The only thing the opening is missing is the large-breasted, topless dancers. Those will come later… This Continue Reading...

Looks like your friendly neighborhood Headlie writer has finally made it to the big time! My very first review on Wrestlecrap. Oh, how I’ve waited for this moment. Sadly those hopes were dashed when I saw this pop up on Facebook: Uh oh. Admittedly, I thought this meant that Vince Russo shooting on me in the upcoming RD and Blade Continue Reading...

Legends’ House episode 1: “The Boys are Back”

When WWE Network was first announced in fall 2011, Legends’ House, where eight legends of the squared circle would share a house in California, was one of the first programs advertised. Since then, CM Punk has won the WWE title, held it for 14 months, lost it to the Rock, was kept out of the title picture for a year, Continue Reading...
