Nary a year goes by without a wedding taking place in a wrestling ring. This year, Bully Ray tried to tie the knot with Brooke Hogan. Last year, it was Daniel Bryan being jilted at the altar by AJ Lee.

Color us here at WrestleCrap surprised. When Fandango’s vignettes began playing, ol’ RD was about to engrave the cha-cha dancer’s name onto the 2013 Gooker Award plaque well in advance. I myself have tallied many Power Crappings ballots that featured Johnny Curtis’ alter ego among the selections. It seemed Fandango was destined for induction from the minute his, “Mind if Continue Reading...

I’m trapped in a plane. Well, I call it trapped.  I’m 6’5″, rolling in economy, crammed against a window that has offered me a couple hours of sleep on this 8 hour flight.  The night before?  Oh, I was up fixing a server that died on me while I was out of town.  Got no, and I mean zero, sleep.  Continue Reading...

Induction: Frank Trigg vs. AJ Styles: You can’t spell “suMMArily awful” without “MMA”

17 Submitted by on Thu, 28 March 2013, 20:00
Many people who aren’t wrestling fans are incapable of seeing the appeal of watching people pretend to beat each other up. This has always baffled me, since most all television, even so-called “reality” TV, is scripted. Anyone who has ever enjoyed fiction in any genre or medium knows the advantages of scripted entertainment and storytelling. When the action is written Continue Reading...

In 2006, TNA felt the need to further live up to its reputation as the masters of pointless innovation. See, TNA was staging a “Fight for the Right” tournament, named after the Beastie Boys song, with the prize being a shot at the NWA title.

The 2008 election between Barack Obama and John McCain was literally the most important U.S. Presidential election in nearly four years.

The Alaska governor, who Continue Reading...

WWF, 1995-1996 The tough part about being a new member of the Wrestlecrap crew is coming up with ideas for inductions that haven’t been done already. When I look back at the Wrestlecrap treasure trove that was the WWF in the mid-90s, it’s frustrating to know that all the atrocious gimmicks had already been written up on this site over Continue Reading...
