6 Submitted by on Wed, 07 August 2013, 00:00
This is a 1989 commercial for an MTV show called “The Big Show” (and yes, I’m told that it was in fact “a big bad show, tonight, y’all”). See, back then in the stone age MTV used to air programs about music and show music videos, kids. There was some contest to win a “date” (ooo-la-la!) with Hulk Hogan to Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Goldberg refuses to follow the script (and then he pushes an old lady and rips up a kid’s autograph book)

Crapper Paul S. writes: So the selling point for Fall Brawl 2000 was “wrestling is FAKE, but not this time. We swear…” No wonder this company went out of business. You know, I’m willing to defend some of the stuff Vince Russo tried to do, but this really insulted my intelligence as a fan (and as a human being, for Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: MST3K – Samson vs The Vampire Women Montage

2 Submitted by on Sat, 03 August 2013, 00:00
Crapper Chris writes: This selection of clips from MST3K’s episode Samson vs. The Vampire Woman does not have a ton of the professional wrestler who is the hero of the piece. On the other hand, it’s an episode of MST3K where the movie they watch STARS A PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER! More than that, the legendary Mexican luchador El Santo basically stars Continue Reading...

An anonymous Crapper writes: So, I saw THIS the other day… Which has a trailer on YouTube… Seriously. Produced by Shane Douglas. Starring him and Hacksaw Jim Duggan, and for some reason Matt Hardy. Holy hell. I think this is going to be the suckiest thing ever made. Maybe even worse than Ready To Rumble. Are you kidding?! No way! Continue Reading...

Crapper Ezenwa Anyanwu writes: Ever hear of the Angry Grandpa on Youtube? You have? Well, guess what? To no surprise, he still hates TNA Wrestling And who says TNA’s critics are limited to that of the pimply-faced Nathaniels of the world?

Crapper Agent P posted this to our The Craphole forum (join today!) and he wrote there: From an episode of the Power Hour. The previous weeks Braves game went 17 innings and delayed the airing of the show by several hours. Jim Cornette and Jim Ross’ snarky comments are hilarious.

It Came From YouTube: “The Main Event” arcade game rips-off WWF wrestlers

9 Submitted by on Mon, 22 July 2013, 00:00
This is Joe Gagne’s review of Konami’s “The Main Event” arcade game. The game is really nothing special. I’m mostly posting it because Konami very obviously ripped-off several WWF wrestlers to make their roster, making only minor (and really goofy) cosmetic changes and giving them dumb, generic names.

This commercial for Hostess Potato Chips aired in Canada in early 1988 to promote WWF WrestleMania IV (oh, and also to promote Hostess Chips, of course!). In it, the scheming (and hungry… but mostly scheming) Strike Force steals Mean Gene Okerlund’s delicious Hostess Chips. And even worse, they also got the WWF sticker that’s inside the bag! And remember, Strike Force Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: A Taiwanese CGI parody of the WWE Reddit spoiler scandal

13 Submitted by on Wed, 17 July 2013, 20:59
Crapper Brian Jacobs writes: This video is more to the comedy side I like, like parody and improv. NMA TV is an Asian cartoon parody site that’s decently known. They make ridiculous videos on the news and have in the past splashed in some wrestling references, but this is the first one I can recall in a while totally focused Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Brutus Beefcake graduates from hair styling school

4 Submitted by on Sun, 14 July 2013, 00:00
In November of 1987 Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake earned his degree in hair styling. Plus he got a spiffy VHS tape to remember the event by. I fail to see why the WWF thought we needed to see Brutus get accredited. He just sloppily cuts off guys’ hair with hedge clippers, after all. How much studying and practice can it Continue Reading...

Crapper Nick Blankenship writes: There’s enough goofy clips of WCW’s Dungeon of Doom, that it could probably have its own section in It Came from Youtube. In this clip, we see Jimmy Hart and Maxx Muscle walking around the back alleys of what could be the set of a Batman movie. It really gets good when Kevin Sullivan(MY SON!) introduces Continue Reading...

2 Submitted by on Thu, 11 July 2013, 21:54
Crapper Paul S. writes: Things I learned from this video… 1. Leatherface is real 2. Eric Embry hates Jerry Lawler so much that he actually brought in a serial killer to chop him to pieces. 3. “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” is a documentary apparently… Wow! That is just crazy! I love it. Thanks for the submission, Paul!...
