Independent PPV, 2000 The term, “terrible” is all relative. For example, last week, I inducted Jerry Lawler vs. Roddy Piper, a terrible match with no business headlining a “New Generation” card on a major pay-per-view. If, however, the same match had been put on an independent DVD sold for $1 on the Wal-Mart bargain shelf, then it wouldn’t have been Continue Reading...

Induction: Piper vs. Lawler: No promotion in the world would dare pass this off as “The New Generation.” Well, maybe AWA.

WWF, 1994 It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the late Art Donovan’s classic terrible commentary at King of the Ring 1994. Given my pen name (based on Gorilla Monsoon’s botched introduction that evening) and my blog entitled, “How Much Does This Guy Weigh?”, it should come as no surprise that Harry Simon’s induction of Art Donovan at Continue Reading...

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...

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...

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...

  A Special Look Back at the First Days of NWA-TNA   After the WrestleCrap induction of the wrestling penises (or is that pen-i?) known as The Johnsons a couple of weeks back, I have been bombarded with requests for some of the more…how can I put this nicely?…idiotic characters and angles that plagued the first few weeks of NWA-TNA’s Continue Reading...

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

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...

Music Video, 1985 Text by RD Reynolds Not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it or not, but I am a child of the 1980′s. And if I haven’t…well, to be fair, you’d probably have to be an knuckle dragging mouth breather to have not noticed it. Listen to one episode of WrestleCrap Radio (come on, we really want to break a dozen listeners!), Continue Reading...
