It Came From YouTube: The Gobbledy Gooker dances with his new wrestler friends

23 Submitted by on Wed, 26 November 2014, 15:10
By now I’m sure most all of you have seen The Gobbledy Gooker’s infamous debut at Survivor Series 1990 where he hatched from an egg, and square danced with Mean Gene Okerlund to “Turkey In The Straw”. But did you know he appeared in vignettes shortly afterward on WWF Superstars and WWF Challenge? I guess they wanted to get some Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Gobbledy Gooker’s debut is met with silence

19 Submitted by on Wed, 26 November 2014, 15:00
This is of course The Gobbledy Gooker’s infamous debut (after months of hype) at Survivor Series 1990. Obviously R.D inducted this years and years ago, and he’s the namesake for our Gooker award, but you really need to hear just how dead the crowd is throughout the entire ordeal. You can almost hear the disappointed “Aw! That’s it?” from the Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Bret Hart commercial for Humpty’s Omelets.

Crapper E-Squared writes: I guess Bret became the EGG-cellence of Execution, wouldn’t you say? Gah, that’s so cheesy! Mmm, cheese omelets… Humpty reminds me of this song, which is always a good thing. Kind of wish they’d had him doing that dance to the song in the commercial… If you and I are ever in Canada, I promise we’ll check Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Rare Crush song from WrestleMania: The Album

4 Submitted by on Thu, 13 November 2014, 09:00 Aloha, Crappers! This is “Cold Crush”; a song that was somehow only available on the European versions of “WrestleMania: The Album”. Yes, before he was a jailbird he was a songbird! Oh, those lucky Europeans! I wish we Americans had been treated to this gem of a song. “Go! Go! Go Crush!”. I prefer “Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go!”, Continue Reading...

When I found this clip of a pilot for a Judge show staring Hacksaw Jim Duggan (!!!), I just knew I had to share it with you, Crappers! Quoting form an old Wrestling Observer: “A Tv Series starring Duggan called ‘Biker’s Court’ was attempting to be sold for syndication at the NATPE convention last week. It was a worked cross Continue Reading...

Crapper Paul S. writes: So… remember that time Hulk Hogan had to race Terry Funk in a monster truck contest and then they had to team-up to stop a robot dinosaur from assassinating the Queen of England? Oh and there was also a jewel heist. Part 1. Part 2. Part 3. Wow… This is the greatest show in the history Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Shockmaster has ironic theme music

23 Submitted by on Thu, 06 November 2014, 02:00
We all know about The Shockmaster’s infamous debut where he fell through the wall of the A Flair For The Gold set (which I’ll again remind everyone was not his fault), but did you know he actually wrestled under that name afterward? They retooled the gimmick to make him a construction worker (?) but still kept the Shockmaster name (??). Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Jim Ross is cranky on LiveWire!

15 Submitted by on Sun, 02 November 2014, 02:00
Someone posted this on The Fan Forum and I had to share it here. It’s Jim Ross answering caller questions on WWE’s call-in show from 1996 “LiveWire”. And boy oh boy, Jim Ross must’ve been having a really bad morning that day! Maybe his cowboy hat was on too tight? Could this Blade’s inspiration for his “Angry Jim” character? P.S- Nice Cosby Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Exorcist parody!

Crapper Anders Larsson writes: As a young mark in the late 80s/early 90s when the WWE slogan was “Family Entertainment” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing in this Exorcist parody where Jesse Ventura and Gene Okerlund appeared as themselves, and Okerlund said this about Linda Blair: “Nice tits, sure, but a face I wouldn’t wipe my feet on.” Also Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Honky Tonk Man cuts a promo on Randy Savage… in 2014.

13 Submitted by on Mon, 20 October 2014, 15:00
The Honky Tonk Man recently cut a promo on Randy Savage at the suggestion of Bill Apter. You know, the same Randy Savage who died in 2011? Yeah, him. To be fair, this was Bill’s idea, but Honky could have said “No, I don’t want to do that because that’s pointless and disrespects the memory of Randy”. But he didn’t…...

It Came From YouTube: Earthquake takes on Yokozuna… in a Sumo Match?!

15 Submitted by on Thu, 16 October 2014, 02:00
Not even the greatness of John “Earthquake” Tenta can make the whole Sumo match interesting so here’s just the finish of it. I know John was a legitimate Sumo Wrestler, but I’m not quite sure what they were thinking with this. It didn’t get Earthquake over, they didn’t push him, and he left shortly afterwards anyway. Plus, it made Yokozuna look Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: WWF WrestleMania VCR Board Game Commercial

14 Submitted by on Tue, 14 October 2014, 02:00
Check out this weird commercial for the WWF WrestleMania VCR Board Game. The Macho Man Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth lead a teenager through.. um… some world that reminds me of The Halls Of Medicine from those old Halls Cough Drops commercials.  It’s like Randy’s leading the kid through a virtual representation of the WWE’s tape library. I half-expected Max Continue Reading...

Crapper Paul S. writes: It’s the Halloween season which means Wrestlecrap needs a lot Kevin Sullivan. Watch as he summons a wrestler from the ocean. Oh boy, that is certainly an um… interesting way to debut a wrestler. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that he has a crappy gimmick and that I’ve never heard of him before. Two things Continue Reading...
