Crapper Paul S. writes: So… remember that time Hulk Hogan had to race Terry Funk in a monster truck contest and then they had to team-up to stop a robot dinosaur from assassinating the Queen of England? Oh and there was also a jewel heist. Part 1. Part 2. Part 3. Wow… This is the greatest show in the history Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Shockmaster has ironic theme music

23 Submitted by on Thu, 06 November 2014, 02:00
We all know about The Shockmaster’s infamous debut where he fell through the wall of the A Flair For The Gold set (which I’ll again remind everyone was not his fault), but did you know he actually wrestled under that name afterward? They retooled the gimmick to make him a construction worker (?) but still kept the Shockmaster name (??). Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Jim Ross is cranky on LiveWire!

15 Submitted by on Sun, 02 November 2014, 02:00
Someone posted this on The Fan Forum and I had to share it here. It’s Jim Ross answering caller questions on WWE’s call-in show from 1996 “LiveWire”. And boy oh boy, Jim Ross must’ve been having a really bad morning that day! Maybe his cowboy hat was on too tight? Could this Blade’s inspiration for his “Angry Jim” character? P.S- Nice Cosby Continue Reading...

Crapper Anders Larsson writes: As a young mark in the late 80s/early 90s when the WWE slogan was “Family Entertainment” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing in this Exorcist parody where Jesse Ventura and Gene Okerlund appeared as themselves, and Okerlund said this about Linda Blair: “Nice tits, sure, but a face I wouldn’t wipe my feet on.” Also Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Honky Tonk Man cuts a promo on Randy Savage… in 2014.

13 Submitted by on Mon, 20 October 2014, 15:00
The Honky Tonk Man recently cut a promo on Randy Savage at the suggestion of Bill Apter. You know, the same Randy Savage who died in 2011? Yeah, him. To be fair, this was Bill’s idea, but Honky could have said “No, I don’t want to do that because that’s pointless and disrespects the memory of Randy”. But he didn’t…...

It Came From YouTube: Earthquake takes on Yokozuna… in a Sumo Match?!

15 Submitted by on Thu, 16 October 2014, 02:00
Not even the greatness of John “Earthquake” Tenta can make the whole Sumo match interesting so here’s just the finish of it. I know John was a legitimate Sumo Wrestler, but I’m not quite sure what they were thinking with this. It didn’t get Earthquake over, they didn’t push him, and he left shortly afterwards anyway. Plus, it made Yokozuna look Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: WWF WrestleMania VCR Board Game Commercial

14 Submitted by on Tue, 14 October 2014, 02:00
Check out this weird commercial for the WWF WrestleMania VCR Board Game. The Macho Man Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth lead a teenager through.. um… some world that reminds me of The Halls Of Medicine from those old Halls Cough Drops commercials.  It’s like Randy’s leading the kid through a virtual representation of the WWE’s tape library. I half-expected Max Continue Reading...

Crapper Paul S. writes: It’s the Halloween season which means Wrestlecrap needs a lot Kevin Sullivan. Watch as he summons a wrestler from the ocean. Oh boy, that is certainly an um… interesting way to debut a wrestler. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that he has a crappy gimmick and that I’ve never heard of him before. Two things Continue Reading...

Oh, this is a good one! From 1995 I present the WWF’s “Greetings On Call”! How cool would it be to get a special birthday message from Razor Ramon? Or The Undertaker? Lex Luger singing is just priceless! He would’ve made for a great lounge singer if the whole “Being a patriotic American” thing didn’t work out for him (and Continue Reading...

Beatniks doing poetry? Not the first thing I would think of when wanting to promote your cologne…especially in the Attitude Era. Hell, Continue Reading...

Steve Austin, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Ralph Macchio band together to raise awareness about a very serious issue in this new commercial for Wendy’s new line of Bar-B-Que Pulled Pork sandwiches. And really, if you can’t trust The Rattlesnake, Daniel from The Karate Kid, and Carlton from The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, then who can you trust?! #BBQ4Merica I wonder if Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Tag Team Wrestling is the worst wrestling video game ever

Joe Gagne reviews Tag Team Wrestling for the Nintendo NES. He’s absolutely right about everything. This is an awful game. Actually; since I never read the game manuals as a child; I never knew about that awkward menu system until I watched this review. I think I just randomly pressed buttons to try and make something interesting happen because I Continue Reading...

Crapper Sean Bateman writes: Twenty Five years ago on September 26 of 1992, Bill Watts recinded his Over The Top DQ, a dumb rule mind you, and swapped it with this POS rule. Hey, what better way to get viewers interesting and excited about your product than to bog it down with a bunch of nonsensical and confusing rules that don’t Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Lanny Poffo reads a poem about Hulk Hogan while wearing a suit of armor.

4 Submitted by on Sun, 21 September 2014, 02:00
From the old WWF Tuesday Night Titans show in 1985; Hulk Hogan rambles on and on about his stupid sweat-stained weightlifting belt (much to Vince’s amusing disgust)… But forget that noise! What you really need to see is Lanny Poffo (yes, The Genius himself) reciting a really nice poem about Hulk Hogan while wearing a suit of armor. That right there Continue Reading...
