Induction: Lex Luger, Million-Dollar Turncoat? – At least the *arenas* didn’t sell out.

WWF, 1995 Once upon a time, “Made in the USA” Lex Luger and the Native American Tatanka were the best of friends. Together, the two All-Americans would demolish whatever unpatriotic force stood in their way.   All this changed in the summer of 1994, when, after weeks of speculation, Tatanka broke the unfortunate news: Lex Luger had sold out to Continue Reading...

Induction: Wrestlemania XV – RussoMania

WWF, 1999 Wrestlemania is always supposed to be WWE’s biggest show of the year, but for a while, it seemed that every other year the focal point of the wrestling calendar would stink to high heaven. Think about Wrestlemanias 9, 11, and 13; if the WWF wanted to break the odd-numbered Mania curse in 1999, they would have to pull Continue Reading...

Induction: Wrestlemania XI – The Grandest Stage of the Mall

57 Submitted by on Wed, 02 April 2014, 14:00
WWF, 1995 When it comes to ranking the top ten Wrestlemanias of all time, Wrestlemania XI doesn’t exactly spring to mind, and this was true even in 1995, when there were only 11 Manias to begin with. The first thing you’ll notice about Wrestlemania XI is that its intro recalls moments from every Wrestlemania to date, but precisely zero of Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Little Hercules – Because the World Needed The Hulkster in 3D!

26 Submitted by on Tue, 01 April 2014, 19:00
Since day one here at WrestleCrap.com, I’ve known that an integral feature on the site needed to be in-depth reviews of horrible movies starring wrestlers.  Ever since I saw No Holds Barred back in 1989, I was scarred for life, and I wanted others to be equally scarred.  Look back into the archive (cheap plug, it’s only $14.95!!), and you Continue Reading...

Induction: Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan – How long should this world title match last? LOL, I’ll pretend you said 18 seconds.

WWE, 2012 It was Wrestlemania, and wrestling fans around the world were eager to see Daniel Bryan take on Sheamus in a title match on the grandest stage of them all. While not the most heavily-hyped match on the card, this match had the potential to steal the show. Imagine those fans’ surprise when the match ended before they knew Continue Reading...

Induction: Steve Austin vs. Yokozuna – A match fit for a king. Apparently.

24 Submitted by on Thu, 20 March 2014, 20:00
WWF, 1996 The WWF’s King of the Ring was a pretty big deal back when the Federation held an annual pay-per-view around the tournament. Winning the crown, while not a guarantee of success, was an indicator that big things were coming a wrestler’s way. Of the tournament-winners from 1993 to 2002, Owen Hart, Mabel, Kurt Angle, and Brock Lesnar all Continue Reading...

Induction: Cryme Tyme meets George W. Bush: If the President was pro-life, why did he perform this comedic abortion?

29 Submitted by on Thu, 13 March 2014, 20:00
WWE, 2006 WWE, not unlike the Ultimate Warrior, has a lot of bad habits, but only ones that help this website survive. Besides a fascination with feces, outrageously lewd sexual story lines, and constantly humiliating Jim Ross, Vince and his band of merry yes-men have always had a thing for political jokes.   Well, not so much “political” jokes as Continue Reading...

Induction: Hollywood Backlot Brawl – Brawl and Panties! Brawl and Panties!

WWF, 1996 In 1996, with Wrestlemania XII just around the corner, Scott Hall declared his intentions to go to WCW after that year’s big event. Normally, this would mean a simple change in booking. Instead of Razor Ramon beating Goldust to regain his Intercontinental Title, he would just lose the match, putting over the champion and leaving the company without Continue Reading...

Induction: The Return of Virgil – Who? Mike Jones!

31 Submitted by on Thu, 27 February 2014, 21:00
WWE, 2010 Ever since “The Wrestler” hit theaters in 2009, a lot of past-their prime superstars have been pegged as “The Wrestler in real life”: a former big name now living in the past and struggling with addiction or financial despair. Ric Flair, Scott Hall, Jake Roberts, and many others have been given that dubious distinction. One scene in that Continue Reading...
