It Came From YouTube: Bobby Heenan teaches you the proper way to work out!

Crapper Avi Krebs writes: After shamelessly watching the Rock N’ Wrestling Episode posted on Wrestlecrap, I decided to watch another. I stopped after the first minute because I wanted to send this clip into you. It’s your friend and mine, Bobby the Brain Heenan, looking fairly spry in 1986. In true Brain fashion he shows us how to pump some Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Paul Fisher is a lot like Kurt Angle (in so far as they’re both male).

10 Submitted by on Fri, 14 February 2014, 02:05
Crapper B. Amoda writes: Judo Joe? Bah! At least he might have been trained at some point. Fisher appears to have never stepped through the ropes prior to this match. Not only can’t he run the ropes, he can’t even lock up correctly. Hey, I think Paul is a great wrestler! You’d have to be nuts to disagree with me! Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: William Regal gets reminded of his past

5 Submitted by on Thu, 13 February 2014, 16:56
Crapper Christian Grimmett writes: This is from an episode of Superstars from William Regal’s hometown. The production crew play a little joke on him… It’s hilarious how he reacts, at one point he tries to scowl, but ends up making himself laugh again. Outstanding! I love his smirk once he realizes what’s going on. This is a good excuse to Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: WWF Toyota commercials from the 80’s

7 Submitted by on Thu, 13 February 2014, 02:35
Crapper Paul S. sent these commercials in and writes: Here’s some wacky Toyota commercials from the 1980s that apparently ran on Australian television featuring different wrestlers- Iron Shiek, George “The Animal” Steele”, Paul Roma, Steve Lombardi, and S.D Jones, I love The Iron Sheik doing the triumphant jump at the end of his commercial! YEAH!...

It Came From YouTube: Behold, the awesomeness of Power Uti!

9 Submitted by on Wed, 12 February 2014, 02:00
Crapper Third String Point Guard writes: As the YouTube clip suggests, this is from Pro Wrestling USA, February 1985. Those who have read Mick Foley’s Have a Nice Day probably remember Power Uti, Nigeria’s answer to Hulk Hogan, he who scared crooked military cops into playing it straight by shouting “I am Power Uti, the Nigerian heavyweight champion!”, and bullied Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Suspiciously old kids in WWF LJN figures toy commercial

7 Submitted by on Tue, 11 February 2014, 02:00
Crapper Little Louie P (a.k.a. The Doctor of Style) writes: In commercials, it’s a common trick by toy companies to cast kids who are older than the toy’s target audience. However, LJN was really pushing the envelope with this one. I bet an hour after posing their action figures for the camera, these two kids were buying their weekly Clearasil Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Larry Zbyszko finds the mysterious Go The Ninja

3 Submitted by on Sun, 09 February 2014, 06:24
Crapper Paul S. writes: Here’s something you might use. Larry Zbyszko introduces his new sidekick Mr. Go the highly visible ninja. Anyway Go the Ninja was originally played by the very good Japanese wrestler Ryuma Go but his stint in the AWA was short lived. The gimmick was unceremoniously handed off to Steve Olsonoski and suddenly Mr. Go went from Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Stevie Richards’ theme sounds familiar…

7 Submitted by on Sun, 09 February 2014, 02:00
Crapper Drew sent in these videos of Stevie Richards’ them song, and “Love Dump” by Static-X. He writes: This might be a stretch because the main metal riff is a little, say.. generic? But, in the same way DDP’s WCW theme was just a ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ knock off – wasn’t Stevie Richards last WWE theme just ‘Love Dump’ Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Terry Funk is Demolition Dirk Simmons!

10 Submitted by on Sat, 08 February 2014, 21:00
Crapper Jason Barnett writes: From the old TV show Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction, this story stars Terry Funk Wow! Lieutenant Commander Riker and Terry Funk in the same TV show! That’s not quite as cool as if it were Oh, and to answer the question imposed in the TV show’s title, this is totally fiction in every conceivable meaning of Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Jimmy Hart wrote his own WCW theme music so it has to be good, right?

6 Submitted by on Wed, 05 February 2014, 02:30
Crapper Sean Bateman writes: We have heard The Mouth of The South sing some good songs in the WWE (Eat Your Heart Out Rick Springfield and Crank it Up [The latter was used for the Young Stallions, who broke up and appeared in WCW down the road]) to Wrestlecrap songs (background vocals in Wrestlecrap Induction the Hulk Rules Album). Here Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Chris Hamrick bump

10 Submitted by on Tue, 04 February 2014, 17:00
Crapper Jim Venzke writes: Are you familiar with the Chris Hamrick Bump? I enjoy watching Dolph Ziggler’s matches because he takes some pretty sick bumps. But he has nothing on this one. I’ve probably watched this one 100 times and it’s never failed to crack me up. Wow! Never seen that before, but it got a laugh out of me. Reminds me Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Kurt Angle and Bob Backlund go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly

4 Submitted by on Mon, 03 February 2014, 02:56
Crapper Drew submitted this and writes: The pairing of Psycho Bob Backlund (a few years removed from his dumb Presidential candidate storyline) and All American heel Kurt Angle was a no-brainer. With his ankle lock and now Backlund’s cross-face chicken wing – Angle could now make his opponents submit with two dreaded finishers. But I think old Bob was wearing Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Hornswoggle eats too much and vomits (oh boy!)

This is Hornswoggle on Wreckless Eating. This is one of those cases where I have absolutely nothing to add. If you clicked on the link to read this article; you already know what you’re going to see- a little person entering an eating contest, eating too much, and puking as a result. I hope you had a satisfying experience watching Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: A kid reads a spooky poem about Sting while he hangs out with a vulture.

14 Submitted by on Wed, 29 January 2014, 23:15
I don’t even know what to say about this one, Crappers. This is from a WCW Clash Of The Champions in late 1996. Some boy (why?) reads an overly-dramatic poem (again, why?!) about how Sting is sad and feels betrayed (aww, give us a hug, ya big lug!) and will get vengeance upon the evil NWO. While this is going Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Witness the birth of The Oddities (no, not literally!)

Crapper Autrach Sejanoz write: Let’s see – The Jackyl (better known to ECW fans as Cyrus), Luna Vachon, John Tenta, Giant Silva, and two members of Howard Stern’s Wack Pack. What was WWE’s creative team on, and where can I get some? Oh, man… The only one of the bunch who could really wrestle was John, but you have to Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Mick Foley smashes a TV with a baseball bat!

9 Submitted by on Tue, 28 January 2014, 19:40
Mick Foley destroys a perfectly innocent, defenseless little TV in protest of Daniel Bryan not getting a decent push. He did this because.. um… because… Well, I guess he did it because he wanted to use the smarks’ OUTRAGE to try and get some attention for himself. I guess it worked since we’re featuring it right here…. on WrestleCrap.com!...
