It Came From YouTube: Brian Pillman takes on his sharpest opponent ever!

Crapper Autrach Sejanoz writes: I’ve heard wrestlers say they could have a great match with a broomstick, but leave it to Brian Pillman to prove he could have a great match with a giant pencil. Pfft! Oh sure he can take on The Graphite Grappler (he’s ranked #2 in the world, you know), but how well would he have done Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Bobby Heenan is literally a weasel-faced goof!

In the mid-90′s WCW would sometimes have “All Nighter” events showing classic NWA/WCW matches hosted by WCW announcers “live”. Bobby Heenan (supposedly) fell asleep during one of these events and the other guys drew a weasel nose and whiskers on him. They proceeded to laugh as if this was the funniest thing in the world. Isn’t this something that college Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: It wasn’t The Shockmaster’s fault that he fell (really!).

Jim Cornette explains on Steve Austin’s podcast how it wasn’t The Shockmaster’s fault that he fell during his grand debut entrance. We can thank WCW’s set construction crew (and maybe Ole Anderson himself) for this memorable moment. Poor Fred. I can’t help but feel bad for him. Not only did he not know about the huge support beam that was Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Goldust no more (for a little while, anyway).

Dustin Rhodes burns his Goldust outfit because he’s sick of being Goldust (or “The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust”, or whatever). So, he starts to talk like a preacher- rambling on and on about how “he” is coming back soon. Who is “he”? Well, it turned out “he” was Goldust when Dustin became Goldust again a few weeks later because Continue Reading...

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

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...

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!

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

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…

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!

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?

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).

It Came From YouTube: The Chris Hamrick bump

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...
