It Came From YouTube: WCW Backstage Assault- one of the worst wrestling video games of all time.

23 Submitted by on Mon, 18 November 2013, 04:06
This is Joe Gagne’s review of WCW Backstage Assault for the Sony Playstation (it was also released for the Nintendo 64). A WCW wrestling game that takes places entirely backstage… so there’s no actual ring for you to wrestle in in this wrestling game. Brilliant! Check out the oddball roster choices Joe helpfully outlines for us. If you ever wanted Continue Reading...

“Wheel of Dixie, turn turn turn! Tell us the lesson that we should learn!”. “Lesson #27: Dixie shouldn’t be allowed to do these promos because she has all the personality and acting skills of Hacksaw Jim Duggan’s 2×4″. (With sincere apologies to Yakko, Wakko and Dot)....

35 Submitted by on Wed, 13 November 2013, 00:00
“WCW Thunder” was released for the Sony Playstation in 1998. It is widely considered one of the worst wrestling games of all time. Its only notable feature are the rants the wrestlers give on the wrestler selection screen: Here’s Joe Gagne’s review of it that sums up the problems nicely. Did any of you Crappers own or play this game? Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling cartoon episode

6 Submitted by on Tue, 12 November 2013, 00:00
Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling was a cartoon that aired for two seasons from 1985 to 1987 on CBS. It featured many WWF Superstars of the era including Hulk Hogan himself. None of the wrestlers provided their own voices for the animated segments and they sound nothing like the actual wrestlers. Well, “Hulk Hogan” sounds a little like him, I Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Rock challenges a former WrestleCrap contributor

From Winter of 1997, The Rock challenges former WrestleCrap contributor Bill Apter (oh yeah, and I guess you’d know him for his work on Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine and on 1Wrestling.com…) for Bill’s Office Championship belt. Pfft! Oh, please. Sure, The Rock will trash talk Bill who isn’t a wrestler, but he’d never be brave enough to challenge a couple of Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Ted DiBiase has The Undertaker… or does he?

7 Submitted by on Sun, 10 November 2013, 02:41
Ted DiBiase introduces The (fake) Undertaker on Shawn Michaels’ Heartbreak Hotel complete with overdubbed voice provided by the (real) Undertaker. As dumb as this whole Undertaker vs. Undertaker angle was, you have to admit that Brian Lee worked really hard to get The Undertaker’s mannerisms and move set down. And how can you not love Shawn’s Heartbreak Hotel interview set?...

Someone Bought This: Hulk Hogan Right Guard print ad

We’ve covered Hulk’s Right Guard commercial before but now you can own this print ad for the deodorant that probably ran in WWF Magazines in 1992. The Amazon listing says it’s a “Unique Gift”. Indeed it is! Why not buy it for yourself or a fellow wrestling fan and help support WrestleCrap in the process? You could even frame it and hang it Continue Reading...

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

6 Submitted by on Wed, 06 November 2013, 09:19
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...

It Came From YouTube: WCW gives us KISS, and KISS gives us The KISS Demon!

10 Submitted by on Thu, 31 October 2013, 14:10
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...
