Induction: An American Christmas Carol – Sit On It, Marley!

59 Submitted by on Thu, 24 December 2015, 08:05
  Made for TV Movie, 1979 Not sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m an absolute fanatic when it comes to A Christmas Carol.  I love the book, but it’s other adaptations of it that really get my chestnuts roasting. Which sounds simultaneously lewd and painful. Anyhoo, I absolutely devour movies featuring the yuletide antics of one Ebenezer Scrooge. It’s Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: WWF Christmas Party 2001: They Sure Don’t Have Parties Like THIS Anymore!

11 Submitted by on Thu, 24 December 2015, 08:03
WWF, 2001 Text by RD Reynolds Office Christmas parties ain’t what they used to be. While I was never privy to the insanity that apparently took place back in the 70’s (according to TV and film, those things had everything from guys xeroxing their anuses to drugs to orgies to guys xeroxing their anuses with drugs while having an orgie), I Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Santa Buddies: You Wouldn’t Think Puppies Could Suck the Joy Out of Christmas

8 Submitted by on Thu, 24 December 2015, 08:01
Direct to Hell DVD Release, 2009 Text by RD Reynolds Mrs. Deal: “Let me see if I got this right: you’re going to make fun of a kids’ Christmas movie starring puppies. What is wrong with you?” Oh no…no no no, Mrs. Deal. Don’t you dare paint me as the villain here. I didn’t make this movie. I didn’t make this horrible, horrendous, Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Jingle All the Way & Jingle All the Way 2 – We Watched Them Both And Didn’t Hear “It’s Not a Tumor” or “Get ‘Er Done” Even Once

64 Submitted by on Sun, 20 December 2015, 15:00
Ah December…the time we get to take a break from writing about horrible wrestling and instead go dumpster diving into the world of horrible Christmas movies!  We’ve been doing this I believe since year one at WrestleCrap, so there ain’t no stopping us now.  And this year, you get a double dose, as we do a two-fer-one with myself and Continue Reading...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: Christmas Comes to Pac-Land: The Cartoon That Will Make You Hate Pac-Man AND Santa

11 Submitted by on Sat, 19 December 2015, 12:01
ABC Cartoon, 1982 Text by RD Reynolds Standard December Disclaimer: Every year, I take a week away from doing wrestling inductions to review the very worst of Christmas movies and specials. And this is that week! I do hope you enjoy a very special, and very horrible, Christmas Comes to Pac-Land! As anyone who has read this site for, oh, 90 Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Back to the Future Christmas – Great Scott! This Show Sucks!

23 Submitted by on Thu, 17 December 2015, 20:00
Cartoon, 1992 Note from RD: It’s that time of year again – CHRISTMAS!  As is the tradition around these parts, my last induction of the year prior to Christmas is always a non-wrestling one that focuses on a terrible Christmas movie or TV special.  Take a break from awful wrestling with an awful yule log instead! As I write this, I am Continue Reading...

Induction: Kevin Federline vs. John Cena – Platinum-selling rapper vs. K-Fed

35 Submitted by on Thu, 10 December 2015, 20:03
WWE, 2006 It’s rare for WWE to recruit a mainstream celebrity so reviled that the general public thinks the wrestling organization is lowering its standards by associating itself with such riff-raff. Prepare to take a trip back to the alien world of 2006, when John Cena was still cheered by some adult males, and being married to Britney Spears entitled Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Christmas Bounty – Because When You Think Christmas (And Bounty Hunting), You Think THE MIZ

36 Submitted by on Thu, 03 December 2015, 20:00
WWE Studios, 2013 The image above is unlike any I’ve ever led an induction with, but I think it may be the most appropriate ever. If not “appropriate”, it is the most personal.  What you see in this photograph is my living room.  That’s my crusty old Mitsubishi rear projection that is what the Reynolds family watches every night.  No, we’ve never Continue Reading...

Induction: Survivor Series Substitutes – Knights in Shawn’s Service

56 Submitted by on Thu, 26 November 2015, 20:00
As long as there has been a Survivor Series, there have been replacement team members in the elimination matches. When you have eight or ten men booked in the same match, you’re bound to lose one or two to injury or pink slips by the time the pay-per-view rolls around. It’s a staple of the WWF’s annual Survivor Series pay-per-view Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Sunny on Singled Out – Behold the Glory That is PAT (Because He is Apparently All That)!

38 Submitted by on Thu, 19 November 2015, 20:00
MTV, 1996 Suggested by Fellow Crapper Chad Adams! We come up with induction ideas in all kinds of different ways here at WrestleCrap.com.  Sometimes it’s dumb stuff I remember from when I first started watching (1985 or so), sometimes I comb through Gooker award losers, sometimes I just find something stupid on the WWE Network.  My favorite way of getting Continue Reading...

Induction: The Alvin & The Chipmunks Wrestling Episode – Still better wrestling ‘munks than Friar Ferguson

25 Submitted by on Thu, 12 November 2015, 20:00
TV, 1983 Every TV show needs a wrestling episode and, despite its reputation for groundbreaking storytelling, the Alvin & The Chipmunks 1980s cartoon series was no exception. The Chipmunks’ wrestling episode (well, half-episode. Each episode had two separate stories) started off with David Seville dragging the Chipmunks along for some heavy-duty shopping, only for the three singing rodents to daydream Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Bad News Brown’s MUTANT SEWER RATS – Because That Sounds Way More Ominous than “Bad News Brown’s Black Box”

35 Submitted by on Thu, 05 November 2015, 20:00
WWF, 1990 It seems like this year, more than any other I can recall, I’ve thought a lot about the early days of WrestleCrap.com.  Maybe it’s due to it being the fifteenth year of the site, maybe it’s due to me becoming an old fossil.  Could also be my binge watching of Prime Time Wrestling.  Whatever the reason, the words “sewer Continue Reading...

Induction: The Ortons vs. The Undertaker – Possession is 9/10s of the law, but only 1/10 of what made this feud so stupid

28 Submitted by on Thu, 29 October 2015, 20:06
WWE, 2005 It’s Halloween time, and you’d think that we here at Wrestlecrap would roll out some scary themed inductions to mark the occasion. Well, have no fear! …No, have some fear, because it’s Halloween… React with as much fear as you deem appropriate for this most frightening of all wrestling feuds: The Undertaker vs. the Ortons! Wax dummies! Demonic Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Halloween Raw 1995 – With Count Todd Pettengill! Ha. Ha. Ha.

32 Submitted by on Thu, 22 October 2015, 20:00
WWF, 1995 Holiday-themed wrestling shows…is there anything better in life? Specifically, look at that Monday Night Raw jack-o-lantern above.  Smoke billowing, candle flickering…gotta say, that is pretty darn cool.  If I had any skill, I’d try to carve that out and put it on the Reynolds Ranch front porch.  Then again, I always take pride in the candy we give out (so Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: The Bee Family – Is that Brunzell or JYD? MASKED CONFUSION INDEED!

29 Submitted by on Thu, 08 October 2015, 20:00
WWF, 1988 In the late 80’s, tag team wrestling was arguably the hottest I’d ever seen in my life.  You had great tandems all over the place, from the Midnight Express to the Road Warriors, the Hart Foundation, the Horsemen, the Rockers, the British Bulldogs, and about a thousand others I’m not thinking of at the moment.  Those of you Continue Reading...

Induction: JBL Is Poopy – And a murderer (almost)

37 Submitted by on Thu, 01 October 2015, 20:05
WWE, 2008 Often in wrestling, writers will book an old angle all over again, but stupider. In 2000, The Rock led a walk-out against the ruthless heel authority figures for firing Mick Foley. Eleven years later, Jerry Lawler led a walk-out against the fan-friendly authority figure for negligence and anal bleeding. In 2006, DX dropped simulated fecal matter on the Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Some Random WWF Coloring Book from 1991 – Ok, Actually It’s Called WWF Tag Team Superstars. Happy?

55 Submitted by on Thu, 24 September 2015, 20:00
WWF, 1991 I don’t follow politics.   I’ve seen good men who have and witnessed their rapid decline, as they get furious about things that they cannot possibly hope to change.  Don’t get me wrong, I do vote, but I don’t live and die by the nightly news or checking out The Drudge Report.  And to be fair, I don’t even know Continue Reading...

Induction: McMahon’s Million Dollar Mania – Skip Raw or win $1,000,000? Decisions, decisions…

34 Submitted by on Thu, 17 September 2015, 20:42
WWE, 2008 Ever since Vince McMahon bought out WCW in 2001, WWE’s TV ratings trends have been fluctuating between the proverbial “free fall” and the proverbial “graceful descent with a parachute.” In that sense, 2008 was a year like most any other year in the company’s post-Attitude Era period, with Raw viewership dropping to the low 3s by mid-year after Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Evander Holyfield vs. Matt Hardy – Let’s Get Ready to…Well, Not Do Much of Anything

33 Submitted by on Thu, 10 September 2015, 20:00
WWE, 2007 Once upon a time, many years ago, Saturday Night’s Main Event used to be a major happening.  It was an age before Raw, one where the primary television outlet for the WWF was their weekly syndicated show, Superstars of Wrestling.  Yes, Prime Time was around, but most folks followed the exploits of their favorite performers on a show that usually aired on Continue Reading...

Induction: The Debut of Becky Lynch – NXT producers smoke pot of gold

47 Submitted by on Thu, 03 September 2015, 19:57
WWE NXT, 2014 You only get one chance to make a first impression, and for Becky Lynch, even her wrestling debut at age 15, her global experience, and her year in WWE developmental couldn’t save her from bad ideas. Bad ideas like making your wrestling persona the biggest mick this side of the Atlantic. Hey, I’m an O’Donnell. I can Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Prime Time Wrestling’s Audience Era – Why Did They Ruin My Favorite Show?

34 Submitted by on Thu, 27 August 2015, 20:00
WWF, 1991 I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but there would be no WrestleCrap.com without Prime Time Wrestling.  That’s not because the show was bad; it’s because the show was so fantastically awesome.  It’s what led to me becoming a pro wrestling fan in the first place.  It started with a British Bulldogs vs. Hart Foundation match.  I’d never seen anything Continue Reading...

Induction: Hulk Hogan on Arsenio – Liar, Liar, Trunks on Fire

27 Submitted by on Thu, 06 August 2015, 20:00
WWF, 1991 Today’s induction involves Hulk Hogan, some leaked documents, a big scandal, and a black man. No, I don’t mean the Hulkster’s racist rant that recently came to light. I mean Hogan’s appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show amid rumors of steroid abuse. It just goes to prove that old saying: “The more things change, the more they stay Continue Reading...

Induction: Macho Man’s Poop Problems – Too Hot to Handle, Too Brown to Drown

48 Submitted by on Thu, 23 July 2015, 20:19
WCW, 1999 It’s safe to say that the Randy Savage of 1999 was not the same Macho Man wrestling fans remembered from the 80s or even the early 90s. Now substantially bulkier for reasons I won’t speculate about, this Randy Savage was no longer a high-flyer. Instead of Miss Elizabeth at his side, Macho Man now had a three-woman entourage Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: WCW.com – A Dead Site Lives at WrestleCrap.com!

71 Submitted by on Thu, 16 July 2015, 20:00
WCW, 2000 As I think everyone knows, Matt over at Dinosaur Dracula (formerly x-entertainment) and I have been buddies for years.  I mean, it’s not like we talk all the time, or even have each other on speed dial…so maybe “buddies” is a stretch.  Still, we’ve respected each other’s work since I started WrestleCrap.com back in 2000.  I consider him, Continue Reading...

Induction: The Outsiders vs. Adult Film Stars – Hall & Nash’s Biggest Opponent…In Two Ways!

36 Submitted by on Thu, 09 July 2015, 20:18
WCW, 1999 When head writers Vince Russo and Ed Ferrara jumped from the WWF to WCW in the fall of 1999, many expected big changes for WCW and its fortunes. For the masterminds behind the Attitude Era, what WCW needed more than new stars was sex, sex, sex. Not content with just infusing sexual content into the storylines and characters Continue Reading...
