It Came From YouTube: Stone Cold Steve Austin plays with WWF Jakks figures (commercial)

2 Submitted by on Mon, 25 March 2013, 00:00
This is a WWF Jakks figure From 1997. I just love this ad and the idea that badass Stone Cold Steve Austin plays with wrestling figures in his spare time. He’s hilarious “playing” here: “How’s it going, Vince?” “Hey, wait just a minute…” I like how they used actual Vince sound clips in this to re-create the moment. This just Continue Reading...

RD: Figured since I mentioned how much I loved the Finkel heel promo from Memphis in this week’s induction, I should hunt it down and show it to y’all. Be aware that you are about to see one of the greatest “lost” promos of all time!   Kamala attacks Howard Finkel Uploaded by Stinger1981. - More professional, college and classic sports videos. Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Gorilla Monsoon throws Bobby Heenan out of RAW and the WWF

From WWF Monday Night Raw on December 6th, 1993, Gorilla Monsoon has had enough of Bobby Heenan and throws him out of both the arena, and the WWF! Bobby is of course absolutely hilarious throughout this entire bit. What a great way to send him off. Quoting from Bobby Heenan’s Wikipedia page: Heenan, still suffering from the broken neck he Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Jesse “The Body” Ventura sings (kinda) in “The Body Rules” music video

1 Submitted by on Sat, 23 March 2013, 19:55
This is the music video for Jesse “The Body” Ventura’s obscure 1984 single “The Body Rules”. Yes, this came out a year before The Wrestling Album! It’s Jesse Ventura essentially rapping (I don’t know what else to call it- I hesitate to call it “singing”) over some really bland guitar riffs. Here’s what the picture disc single looks like. It’s actually kind of Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Mountie gets propositioned by a guy in jail

6 Submitted by on Thu, 21 March 2013, 09:48
After The Mountie lost a match to The Big Bossman at SummerSlam ’91, he was thrown in jail. See, the implication here is that he’s about to get forcibly sodomized by his effeminate leather-fetishist cellmate which is apparently supposed to be really funny because The Mountie is a bad guy and therefore he deserves it (um, or something). Oh, Those Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Von Erich Brothers’ “Pizza Inn” commercial

5 Submitted by on Wed, 20 March 2013, 00:00
The Von Erich Brothers aren’t just Wrestling Experts- they’re Pizza Experts, too! Unfortunately, what they aren’t are Acting Experts. This commercial makes me want four things really bad: 1. Awesome 80′s feathered hair 2. A nifty polo shirt. 3. Some of those tasty-looking blueberry muffins. 4. A time machine so I can go back in time to take advantage of Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Miss Elizabeth has crazy eyes

10 Submitted by on Tue, 19 March 2013, 00:00
From Prime Time Wrestling the week before the 1989 Royal Rumble. Ignore what Hulk is blathering about because that’s not why I’m posting this. Pay attention to The Lovely(™) Miss Elizabeth. More specifically, her eyes. She has these wild, crazy rapid eye movements and when her eyes aren’t darting around like pinballs, she’s staring at Hulk as if he’s saying the Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Man Mountain Rock Is Coming… and he’s bringing his generic guitar riffs with him!

1 Submitted by on Mon, 18 March 2013, 13:38
“It’s time for school with Man Mountain Rock!“ What class is he teaching? “How To Be A Bland One-Note* Face 101″? So, what can I say about Man Mountain Rock? Well, let’s see… he plays some really generic Surf Music (???) guitar riffs, and he has tattoos, and long hair, he wears tye-dye outfits (?!) to the ring, and um… that’s Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube Classic: Bob Backlund at a St. Patty’s Day Parade

4 Submitted by on Sun, 17 March 2013, 10:15
Upon seeing this video of Bob Backlund roaming the streets of Boston like a raving lunatic in last year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, I’m all for changing the rules of the holiday.     Instead of suffering the consequences for lack of wearing green clothing, I say your ass gets pinched if you’re not wearing suspenders and a bow-tie....

It Came From YouTube: Wrestlers on Nickelodeon “FIgure It Out” game show

5 Submitted by on Sun, 17 March 2013, 00:00
Crapper Chris Morgan submitted this video and writes: Like the bloodthirsty audiences of the days of your, these children demand slime. They demand to see these Figure It Out panelists covered in some neon green sludge, and sometimes professional wrestling folks were lined up as sacrifices. Ah, but unlike Brian Knobbs, who seemed confused by the whole situation, Chris Jericho Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Sgt. Slaughter wants his country back, so he goes to some grade school kids

2 Submitted by on Sun, 17 March 2013, 00:00
Remember back in 1990 when Sgt. Slaughter turned his back on the U.S in 1990, and started making fun of our brave Soldiers during the Gulf War? It was one of the most tasteless, opportunistic angles the WWF has ever done. Well, by 1991 he had a change of heart (for some unexplained reason) and was really, really sorry about Continue Reading...

Yes, The Macho Man Randy Savage appeared on “The Weird Al Show” and elbow-dropped Harvey The Wonder Hamster (Harvey sold it like a champ!). Yes, something this awesome did in fact happen in our reality here on Earth. You are not dreaming or hallucinating. Just seeing Randy Savage and Weird Al together on the same screen makes me smile. I also like The Macho Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Undertaker floats up to the heavens at the 1994 Royal Rumble

Yes, people paid good money to see the 1994 Royal Rumble and this is what they got at the end of the Undertaker Vs. Yokozuna Casket Match. Apparently it was Marty Jannetty dressed as The Undertaker when he “floated up to the heavens”. Kudos to him for doing that (seriously), because I’m terrified of heights and I’d have been way Continue Reading...
