It Came From YouTube: Nord The Barbarian (AKA: The Berzerker) stars in “A Day In The Life” mini-movie

Crapper Rusty Shackleford linked to this in the Comments section of another post and I just had to post it on the site properly. This is a mini-movie produced in 1987 for the AWA staring Nord The Barbarian AKA: The Berzerker AKA: John Nord. It’s like some kind of great, cheese ball 80’s sitcom- “Our Wacky Viking!”. Thanks for pointing Continue Reading...

  RD Reynolds: Maybe it’s just me, but I always thought guys wrestling live bears was a bad idea.   Still, mad props to Gordon Solie for explaining that the bear probably didn’t know a figure four leglock. Madder – WAY madder – props to Smothers for actually LEAP FROGGING the bear!...

It Came From YouTube: Sting and Robocop promos for Capital Combat ’90

4 Submitted by on Sun, 31 March 2013, 15:35
Here are some promos for Capital Combat ’90 featuring Sting and Robocop! “Think it over, creep!”. Also, it’s Robocop’s actual appearance at Capital Combat ’90. The purpose of this nonsense was to promote Robocop 2. Poor Jim Ross had to somehow call all of this with a straight face. I’d have busted a gut laughing the moment Roboop came out. Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube Classic: Missy Hyatt, Apartment Wrestler

Ever wonder what Missy Hyatt’s been up to these days? Turns out she has entered the wholesome world of apartment wrestling. Here’s a trailer for her first apartment wrestling cruiserweight championship match. Who knew apartment wrestling had weight divisions?   Yikes. The way Missy is disciplining “Barbie dolls” and “little brats” in that clip, I hope she never starts running Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Dr. Isaac Yankem’s theme music- most annoying of all time?

12 Submitted by on Sat, 30 March 2013, 00:00
I get that he was a heel and we’re supposed to hate him, but Isaac Yankem’s theme music is just mind-numbingly irritating. Dentist drill + Muzak = HEAD EXPLODE! I truly pity anyone attending WWF events or TV tapings who had to endure this theme music. Apparently when they were recording this theme, they brought in an actual dentist to Continue Reading...

Loyal Crapper Autrach Sejanoz sent in two episodes of WWF personalities on Nickelodeon’s Super Sloppy Double Dare game show (the above show, and one linked below). He writes: The first episode features the greatest commentary team of all time taking each other on, while the second pits Hacksaw Jim Duggan against Mr. Perfect. Strangely, *SPOILER ALERT* the heels win both Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Yokozuna eats for our amusement

From a Coliseum Home Video feature, Yokozuna eats… and eats… and eats some more! These segments just go on and on. I guess they thought that by showing him bulking up, it makes him seem more dangerous (?). I don’t really know… Mostly; this segment just makes me crave delicious Japanese food. The segment is called “Cooking For The Single Man” Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Repo Man as you’ve probably never seen him before

12 Submitted by on Thu, 28 March 2013, 21:00
Crapper Drew remembered seeing Repo Man in WWF Magazine wearing this mask, and he finally found this video clip from WWF Mania in early 1993 and sent it my way. He writes: I sent Deal and email a few months ago saying that I had an old WWF magazine from 1993 where they had a photo of Repo Man’s new ring gear that included Continue Reading...

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...

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

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

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...
