It Came From YouTube: Tremble in fear at martial arts master “Judo” Joe!

16 Submitted by on Thu, 07 November 2013, 05:19
I was reading one of Brian Bayless’ excellent recaps of an old episode of WWF Championship Wrestling on Scott Keith’s blog and one of the matches from this particular episode featured some guy I had never heard of before- “Judo” Joe Black! Since Brian helpfully linked to video of the match, I had to re-post it here. “Judo” Joe is Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Rob Bartlett is the King of Schlock And Roll on an early episode of Monday Night Raw

Infamous early Raw announcer and funny man Rob Bartlett (he really is funny- just not on this show) decided to dress up like Elvis Presley on the March 1st, 1993 episode of Monday Night Raw. Why? Because it’s wacky, that’s why! He proceeds to eat on camera a lot (because Elvis over-ate and got fat, you see…), and later gets pied by Doink The Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: WWF Beauty Pageant Super Bowl ad

3 Submitted by on Wed, 06 November 2013, 06:21
From Super Bowl XXXIV in 2000, here’s a WWF ad featuring… Beauty Pageant contestants. Beauty Pageant contestants who start randomly wrestling each other. Because… um… ATTITUDE! That’s why! YEAH!!! (No, I don’t “get it” either). When asked for comment on this commercial, Stubby said “Those girls having missing teeth is great!” he exclaimed with a wink, but without further explanation....

It Came From YouTube: Tank Abbott beats up Mark Madden and terrifies us all in the process

Q: What’s worse than hearing talentless unfunny hack Mark Madden on commentary when watching WCW Monday Nitro? A: Seeing him half-naked after Tank Abbott inexplicably beats him up and strips off his shirt! Eww… Thanks a lot, WCW! The problem with trying to get Tank over as a heel doing this is that nobody watching WCW particularly cared about Mark Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Creatures Of The Night have gifts for The Undertaker

During The Undertaker’s forgettable epic feud with Kama in 1995 over his stolen urn (which Kama had melted down in a chain), two mysterious gothic Undertaker fans would appear at ringside with gifts for The Undertaker including a black wreath. They must have bought the gifts from the Bed, Goth, And Beyond catalog. These gifts apparently gave The Undertaker special Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The most exciting Eric Bishoff footage you’ll ever see

12 Submitted by on Tue, 05 November 2013, 12:28
The specifics of the storyline here escape my fragile memory, but Eric Bischoff was forced to do menial grunt work under kayfabe WCW President Ric Flair, including putting up the WCW Monday Nitro ring. Yes, they actually spent time showing this on Nitro instead of.. you know… showing wrestlers wrestling. Apparently; somebody thought that Flair making Bischoff his plaything, and Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Jim Ross turns into Angry Jim!

From the March 1st, 1999 episode of Monday Night Raw, Jim Ross turns into Angry Jim right before our eyes as he turns heel for the second time and sics Dr. Death Steve Williams on poor Bart Gunn. At least this was better than his first heel turn back in 1996 when he brought the fake Razor and Diesel in…...

It Came From YouTube: A Barry Horowitz TitanTron video? You’d better believe it, buddy.

When veteran jobber and all-around quality wrestler Barry Horowitz got his own t-shirt and push in 1995, he also got his own theme music to go along with it. His theme music was the traditional Jewish song Hava Nagila because… well, Barry is Jewish and I guess they decided to emphasize that with his theme music for some reason. It’s a pretty Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Sensational Sherri attempts to seduce The Ultimate Warrior

At the 1991 Royal Rumble Sensational Sherri tries to seduce (?!) The Ultimate Warrior into giving her man Randy Savage a title shot. I wish he’d actually reacted positively to her advances. Then we could’ve had a series of Sherri/Warrior date vignettes. How WrestleCraptastic would that have been? Oh well. The Warrior’s reaction to Sherri’s pleading and flirting is pretty Continue Reading...

Bobby “The Brain” Heenan helps Rick Rude train for his match against The Ultimate Warrior at SummreSlam ’90. A few things here… 1. This is one of the only times I can think of where Bobby Heenan really did much of anything to actually help one of his wrestlers he was managing. 2. I didn’t think anyone climbed ropes at Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Mike Tenay serves up some piping hot Voodoo Chili on commentary

I know… “Voodoo Chili?” you’re asking yourself. “What in the name of Stubby is Mike Tenay talking about?!”. Well, let me see if I can explain what Mike meant. Let’s get some facts straight: 1. Hollywood Hogan’s theme song at the time was “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. It’s the last song on their album “Electric Ladyland”. Continue Reading...

From the August 23rd, 1999 episode of WCW Monday Nitro, KISS performs lip-syncs (I suppose they’re cartoony an theatrical enough that somebody thought they’d fit in on a wrestling show) and reveals The Kiss Demon! AKA The Demon AKA Brian Adams (AKA: Demolition Crush, AKA: Kona Crush) in KISS makeup. The role was soon taken over by Dale Torborg. I’m just Continue Reading...

Crapper Ezenwa Anyanwu writes: J.R. sits down for an interview with Music Geeks….and for 8 minutes proceeds to make me laugh from top to bottom. Not only is he jabbing the interviewer rather subtly, but the snark and dry wit is off the page. You’d swear that as soon as he was forced into retirement due to his love of Continue Reading...

This was included in Chris Jericho’s DVD. It’s a heartfelt bonding(?) moment between Jericho and Steve Austin. They really have fun with it, and Continue Reading...

A few months prior to this match, Razor Ramon lost in a very surprising upset to the 1-2-3 Kid which eventually lead to Razor turning face. Now, as seen above on the September 20th, 1993 Monday Night Raw Razor comes out to distract I.R.S causing him to lose to P.J Walker. Oh, the sweet, delicious irony! The main difference between The Continue Reading...

Crapper Jim Shea writes: or: Kevin Nash and Shawn Michaels Want You to Get on Your Feet! It’s just great seeing HBK, Diesel, Undertaker, Paul Bearer (!), and more swoon around the band like groupies in heat.

Here’s DJ Ran’s promo reel to promote his DJing skills.
