Induction: Chyna on Sabrina the Teenage Witch – How’s that for piledriving Miss Daisy?

39 Submitted by on Fri, 19 February 2016, 15:00
WB Network, 2002 Sabrina The Teenage Witch was a mediocre sitcom that aired on ABC in the late ‘90s as part of an all-supernatural TGIF lineup, along with Teen Angel (about an angel), You Wish (about a genie), and Boy Meets World (about the walking shadow of the lead actor’s older, more famous brother). Melissa Joan Hart starred as the Continue Reading...

Induction: The Rusev-Lana-Dolph-Summer Love Trapezoid – The 2015 Gooker Award Winner

59 Submitted by on Thu, 11 February 2016, 20:00
Probably the best thing to come out of the renewed tensions between Russia and the United States* has been the duo of Lana and Rusev. *I can’t think of a second-best thing For a whole year, Rusev and Lana were WWE’s Boris and Natasha, with Rusev as an undefeated, undefeatable, self-styled Hero of the Russian Federation… …and Lana as a Continue Reading...

2015, WWE “This is awesome!” Clap clap-clap clap clap clap. “This is awesome!” Clap clap-clap clap clap clap. “This is awesome!” Clap clap-clap clap clap clap. Amazingly enough, this is how the induction you are reading today got its start, with thousands of fans screaming their heads off, thrilled to be witness to what could have been, should have been, Continue Reading...

161 Submitted by on Sun, 24 January 2016, 08:00
Gooker voting is complete for 2015!!  And it was exceedingly close.  A look at the percentages showed a tie, but looking at the actual votes does in fact give us a winner…by 17 votes! WOW! As it was so close, we will be inducting both the Divas Revolution (as first runner up) and the Rusev-Lana-Dolph-Summer Love Trapazoid (as the official Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Yodelin’ Antonio Cesaro – Yodelayheehoo!!!

36 Submitted by on Thu, 21 January 2016, 20:00
WWE, 2013 Just as the Gooker Award voting wraps up (you have until Friday night!), we are treated as well to the annual Wrestling Observer Awards.  And hey, who would have thunk it? Cesaro, most underrated.  Third time this has happened in a row.  Dave Meltzer, thoughts? “Cesaro, 35, joins Shelton Benjamin as the only person to win this three Continue Reading...

The Further Adventures of El Santa Claus: The Battle With Pitch Was Just the Beginning!

6 Submitted by on Thu, 24 December 2015, 08:12
Short Films, Late 1950’s/Early 1960’s Text by RD Reynolds It feels so weird to think that this induction I am penning tonight is the last new one to ever be featured on what is soon to be the old version of WrestleCrap.com. But in many ways, it is only appropriate that we end it this way. After all, I’m pretty sure Continue Reading...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: The Star Wars Holiday Special – Welcome to the Dark Side

19 Submitted by on Thu, 24 December 2015, 08:10
Television Special, 1978 Note from RD: As you can probably surmise from the title, this has nothing to do with wrestling. But since reviewing bad Christmas movies has become a holiday tradition here at the Crap, I thought there was nothing more appropriate to cover than this stinkbomb from the late 70’s. Enjoy! November 17, 1978 is a date that Continue Reading...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: He-Man Christmas – We Wish You a Merry Atheist Day and a Happy New Year

9 Submitted by on Thu, 24 December 2015, 08:07
Cartoon, 1985 Text by Blade Braxton It’s no secret to listeners of Wrestlecrap Radio, that I am a huge fan of the original He-Man and Masters Of The Universe cartoon. I regard the original set of episodes as some of the best cartoons of the 1980’s. The abomination you’re about to see today however, is quite different. Straying far away from Continue Reading...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: Babes in Toyland – Georgy Porgie Puddin’ Pie, Shows RD His Cameltoe and Makes Him Cry

6 Submitted by on Thu, 24 December 2015, 08:06
Theatrical Motion Picture, 1986 Special Note from RD: This is yet another trek down memory lane, as I take a look at one of the worst holiday movies ever made. This has nothing to do with wrestling, but in the spirit of the season, I thought it might be fun to cover. If you just want wrestling, hit the back Continue Reading...

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...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: Santa’s Slay – Yes, Virginia – Goldberg is Santa Claus!

9 Submitted by on Thu, 24 December 2015, 08:02
Movie, 2005  Hey, remember Bill Goldberg? Sure you do. The guy tore through WCW during its boom period, and were it not for the noodle heads running the company at the time, would likely have led them to even greater heights. He had that weird mix of charisma and intensity that made up for his lack of technical prowess inside Continue Reading...

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

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...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: Silent Night Bloody Night – Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, How Lovely is Your Barbed Wire

8 Submitted by on Fri, 18 December 2015, 19:12
TNA, 2007 Text by RD Reynolds Confession time here at the Crap.  Last year during the Gooker Award voting, I was concerned. No, more than that, I was scared, mortified, almost, at what appeared to be an inevitability: a TNA angle was going to win WrestleCrap’s biggest (and by biggest I do mean ‘only’) award. The storyline was the Robert Roode-Traci 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

36 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...

Classic Induction: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians – Yes, This is a Real Movie

5 Submitted by on Sat, 05 December 2015, 10:00
Movie, 1964  Quick Note from RD: As is the tradition ’round these parts this time of year, I take time away from WrestleCrap and delve into the equally amusing and absurd world of HolidayMovieCrap. Enjoy! Ah yes, the holidays are upon us once again. For many, the highlight is waiting to see what’s waiting for themselves under the tree. For 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...
