10 Submitted by on Sun, 28 April 2013, 22:51
Crapper Paul R. from Spook Central: The Ghostbusters Companion submitted this 1987 NWA Home Video commercial and writes: A pretty great compilation of NWA video ads including The Jim Crocket Cup, Great American Bash 1986, Great American Bash ’87,Starcade: Chi Town Heat, and The Danger Zone. Oh and if you order now you’ll get a limited edition 1988 Men of Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Billy Crystal asks about Hulk Hogan’s breasts on SNL (Mr. T is there, too!)

Crapper Little Louie P (AKA: The Doctor of Style) made my day by sending in this Hulu clip from the March 30th, 1985 episode of Saturday Night Live. He writes: Back in 1985, Mr. T & Hulk Hogan hosted Saturday Night Live to promote Wrestlemania. This was when the cast included Billy Crystal, whose characters included showbiz gadfly Fernando, known Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Bushwhacker Luke’s epic 1991 Royal Rumble performance in its entirety

8 Submitted by on Wed, 24 April 2013, 01:33
From 1991, Bushwhacker Luke has the honor of the shortest participation time in a Royal Rumble match; lasting all of about 4 seconds before Earthquake casually tosses him over the top rope. I like how he immediately starts strutting back around the ring and to the exit after his feet hit the floor as if nothing happened and he doesn’t Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: “Scott Steiner’s Freak Show” workout video promo

3 Submitted by on Tue, 23 April 2013, 20:21
Crapper Paul S. submitted this and writes: In his very own workout video Scott Steiner shows you how to lose weight, by doing exercises that would be impossible for anyone without a Steiner-esc physique. “Maybe it’s right… maybe it ain’t… but it’s what I do.” – Steiner sums it up as only he can. GAH! That’s horrifying! You’re right, I Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: A Viking Vs. A Zombie Mortician (Don’t you just love Pro Wrestling?)

5 Submitted by on Sat, 20 April 2013, 23:57
From the April 25th, 1992 episode of WWF Superstars Of Wrestling; The Berzerker tries to fatally stab The Undertaker with his sword (!); thus proving once and for all that time-traveling 10th Century Vikings have absolutely no idea how 19th Century re-animated Zombified Morticians really work in regards to being impervious to pain and death thanks to The Power Of The Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Karate Fighters Tournament: Sunny Vs. A midget luchador

5 Submitted by on Fri, 19 April 2013, 00:00
This is a 1997 commercial from Raw for Milton Bradley Karate Fighters (think “Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots” but with Karate action figures kicking instead of robots punching) featuring a “tournament” where a midget Luchador named “Shrimp Scampi” (har-har!) competes in a grueling match. (Spoiler: Shrimp Scampi loses). But more important than any of that, the video features the beautiful Continue Reading...

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

1 Submitted by on Thu, 18 April 2013, 19:46
Aloha, Crappers! This is “Cold Crush”; a song that was somehow only available on the European versions of “WrestleMania: The Album”. 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!”, myself… Audio courtesy of the Demo button on any late-80′s Casio Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Siskel & Ebert review No Holds Barred

Crapper Paul S. submitted this and writes: Still sad about Roger Ebert’s passing away earlier this month. Anyway here’s a clip of him and Gene Siskel voicing their displeasure at No Hold’s Barred, and before that Star Trek V, easily the worst in the series. The Hogan-centric portion begins at 5:45 I could watch them review movies all day long Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Ted DiBiase’s basketball challenge makes a child cry- awesome.

7 Submitted by on Thu, 18 April 2013, 00:00
This originally aired on the October 29th, 1987 (taped October 6th) episode of WWF Prime Time Wrestling. I know R.D has already inducted this, but you really have to see the whole thing for yourself. I’m just going to quote from Ted’s Wikipedia article… DiBiase invited fans (including a young Rob Van Dam[25]) to perform humiliating acts (such as kissing Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: WCW’s lousy production values

13 Submitted by on Wed, 17 April 2013, 00:00
A prime example of WCW’s lousy production values. This was not the first, nor last time we’d hear the production crew proclaim a shot “clear” when it was still live and broadcasting. They really should have just pre-taped all of this stuff if they couldn’t do proper live video editing. On the plus side, Elizabeth looked outstanding....

It Came From YouTube: The Nostalgia Critic reviews Hulk Hogan’s Suburban Commando, and Mr. Nanny too!

11 Submitted by on Mon, 15 April 2013, 02:51
I can’t embed this one, but check out Doug “The Nostalgia Critic” Walker’s hilarious review of the Hulk Hogan movie Suburban Commando. The movie isn’t quite as much fun as No Holds Barred, but it’s still worth watching just for Christopher Lloyd alone. But that’s not all! You can also watch The Nostalgia Critic’s review of Hulk Hogan’s Mr. Nanny here which Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Ultimate Warrior calls WWE Shop to teach The Way Of The Warrior

I know prank calls are immature, and they waste people’s valuable time… but I think these celebrity soundboard prank calls are hilarious- especially this one featuring The Ultimate Warrior “calling” WWE Shop and harassing the poor people in the call center by rambling and scramming like a total maniac. “Thank you for calling the WWE Shop. Are you calling to Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Sting’s Sprite commercial

7 Submitted by on Sun, 14 April 2013, 00:00
Crapper Jordan Mishkin sent in this hilarious Sprite soft drink commercial featuring Sting. I always loved this one… and not just because Sting is straight-up beating the tar out of a poor, helpless 12 year old. Sting tells the kid he’s from “The Dream Come True Fantasy Foundation” which presumably is like “The Make-A-Wish Foundation”. So, I assume the kid has to Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Ryback can’t stop eating

Crapper spinningtorturerack posted a link to this video in the Comments section of another post, and I just had to post it here myself. From Tough Enough 4 in 2004, Al Snow talks about how Ryback just can’t stop eating! But who can blame him? Rice Krispy Treats are delicious! “Feed me more” indeed…...

It Came From YouTube: WWF Fan Festival ’94 and ’95 cost less than a replica belt to put together.

4 Submitted by on Fri, 12 April 2013, 11:49
6 minutes, 22 seconds into this block of 1995 commercials is an ad for the then-upcoming WWF Fan Festival ’95. It was basically the pre-curser to the modern “Axxess” events (that’s their stupid spelling, not mine). It was held in the Hartford Civic Center in the days leading up to WrestleMania XI. This was deep into the “bad period” for Continue Reading...
