Induction: NXT Season 2 Finale: Bros before Pros, or Why Curtis Axel isn’t world champion already

32 Submitted by on Thu, 15 August 2013, 20:00
NXT started in early 2010 as a proving ground for new talent, combining elements of Raw and Smackdown (wrestling) with elements of the Million Dollar Tough Enough (reality TV-style eliminations, absurd challenges). The first season was won by Wade Barrett, but the real exclamation point at the end of the season came when all eight rookies stormed the ring and Continue Reading...

Induction: WCW Champion David Arquette vs Tank Abbott: Remember when Russo wanted to put the title on him?

WCW 2000 by Emerson Witner In his critically acclaimed tome A Lion’s Tale, Chris Jericho told the story of him trying to get a pay per view match with WCW Champion Goldberg coming on the heels of a really fun storyline where Jericho kept challenging Goldberg to a match, mocked his entrance and beat a midget version of him. Anyway, Eric Continue Reading...

Induction: Farting Natalya: When a Diva passes gas on TV, Wrestlecrap is never far behind.

27 Submitted by on Thu, 08 August 2013, 20:00
WWE, 2012 Farts have had a complicated history in television. Even though everyone has them, and they are on the whole (no, I don’t like how that sounds; let’s just say, “for the most part”) harmless, for decades they were shunned from the airwaves. Kids have long included flatulence in their schoolyard humor, and fart jokes are often the sole Continue Reading...

Induction: The Self-Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior: A Lesson in Professionalism from WWE’s Spiteful Owner

94 Submitted by on Thu, 25 July 2013, 20:00
WWE, 2005 Some of the biggest news in the wrestling world as of late is the Ultimate Warrior’s promotion of the upcoming WWE 2K14 video game. I suppose the Warrior is a forgiving man, or else he was afraid of what would happen if he refused the endorsement. That’s because, allegedly, the last time the Ultimate Warrior was offered an Continue Reading...

Induction: Flair and Piper on Celebrity Wife Swap: Naitch still is a 60-Minute Man (41 Minutes without the commercials)

ABC television, 2013 When I first heard that wrestling personalities would be featured on Celebrity Wife Swap, I was shocked that Hulk Hogan would even be on speaking terms with Bubba The Love Sponge again, let alone agree to appear on national TV together. Later, I learned that the show was rated TV-PG, putting that lot out of the question. Continue Reading...

Induction: Tough Enough 2: One big bust

32 Submitted by on Thu, 11 July 2013, 19:00
In 2001, WWF was so pleased with the progress of the first season of Tough Enough, the reality show where 13 wannabe wrestlers trained and competed for WWF contracts to the sounds of terrible early 2000s music, that they put a second season into production immediately after the conclusion of the first. It seemed like a no-brainer at the time. Continue Reading...

Induction: Raw is Aldrin: The Eagle has landed in Wrestlecrap

50 Submitted by on Thu, 04 July 2013, 19:00
May 17th, 2010′s Monday Night Raw may have been the most historically significant ever. I don’t mean wrestling history here, either; I mean history history. This was the night that Raw was hosted by Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, second man to step foot on the moon. And really, like the Royal Rumble, that’s pretty much the same as being number one. Continue Reading...

Induction: TNA on Family Feud: We asked a hundred has-beens what kind of job they wanted in TNA. No, wait, that was Hulk Hogan.

44 Submitted by on Thu, 27 June 2013, 19:00
Family Feud is no stranger to the world of wrestling. In the past, they have hosted shows featuring performers from the WWF, WCW, GLOW, and even the WBF. Ray Combs, who took over for Richard Dawson, made numerous appearances at WWF events, and 1993′s Survivor Series even featured a “Family Feud Match” between the Hart family and Jerry Lawler’s masked Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Million Dollar Tough Enough: The Male Diva Search

31 Submitted by on Thu, 20 June 2013, 19:00
WWE in 2004 had something of a dearth of new talent, to say the least. The new “stars” on Raw and Smackdown (okay, mostly Smackdown) included such future main-eventers as Kenzo Suzuki, Mark Jindrak, Luther Reigns, Orlando Jordan, and Heidenreich. To fill the depleted roster, WWE held its fourth season of Tough Enough. Unlike the first three seasons of the Continue Reading...
