Shaniqua: Hate WWE Being PG? You Won’t Be After Reading This!

1 Submitted by on Wed, 26 December 2012, 19:47
WWE, 2003 Text by RD Reynolds One of the biggest complaints I hear about WWE today is that it’s PG. People don’t like that things are toned down, censored if you will, and long for the ‘good, ol’ days.’ I get it. I understand it. It’s because people remember seeing stuff like this: See, that’s the kinda thing you don’t forget. Continue Reading...

WWF, 1995-1996 Text by RD Reynolds Sometimes, things in a wrestling ring just leave you speechless. Things like this. I put serious thought into just posting that image, and being done with this induction. Poor Erik Watts. He threw that horrible dropkick like 20 years ago, and hardcore poindexters such as myself remember it to this day. The sad thing is Continue Reading...

Australian TV, 2009 Text by RD Reynolds I gotta admit, I’ve been pretty bummed out this week. My seemingly never-ending battle with step throat remains…uh…never-ending, and that, combined with Blade suffering yet another concussion (I think it’s time to buy that boy a helmet) have delayed WrestleCrap Radio #200 yet again. It really stinks, because I have been looking forward to Continue Reading...

Jericho and the Planet of the Apes: Why 2J?

1 Submitted by on Wed, 26 December 2012, 19:24
WWF, 2001 Text by RD Reynolds I know I’ve mentioned it countless times over the years, but I am a huge fan of Chris Jericho. And not just because he emailed me once saying he made fun of the Hardys when I posted the Jynx Brothers induction. No, it’s because I think, when given free reign to do whatever he wants, Continue Reading...

TNA Last Rites Match: Beware the DEATH BED!

TNA, 2007 Text by RD Reynolds How did this disaster survive for years without an induction? Look, I’m the first to admit that as I’m getting older my memory is going. I see things that I know are Crap-worthy, and after the grace period of the calendar year, I put them up for the Gooker voting. If they lose…I forget them. Continue Reading...

WWF, 1987 Text by RD Reynolds Oh man, here we go again. Time for another “guy dresses up as a woman, amuses no one” induction. Can I just cut and paste the text from the Harvina induction and call it a night? Or Sammy? Or Kloudi? Sigh. After 11 years of writing inductions, I notice that a few of the same Continue Reading...

WWF, 2001 Text by RD Reynolds You know what I love? You know what really makes me laugh? The folks who point to the WWE Hall of Fame as if it’s some legitimate entity that really decides who the best in the business are. I can’t even fathom there are people in this world who really believe that this sham is Continue Reading...

The Abraham Washington Show: Pros: Tony Atlas Laughing. Cons: Everything Else.

WWE-ECW, 2009 – 2010 Text by RD Reynolds There were warning signs. There were warning signs that I shouldn’t do this induction. Now please don’t misunderstand me: there were no warning signs that The Abraham Washington Show shouldn’t be inducted. That was never in doubt, because that thing was horrible, and it was horrible for like 80 weeks straight or however Continue Reading...

WCW, 1999 Text by RD Reynolds; many thanks to the F4W BOARD (in particular Alan4L for providing the footage) Of all the amazing things I have seen in wrestling over the past 25 years or so of watching it, nothing has been more incredible than its unparalled ability to take gorgeous women and make me never want to see them ever, EVER again. Continue Reading...

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...

WWECW, 2007 Text by RD Reynolds I know a lot of you hated the WWE re-incarnated version of ECW, and for years, I stood amongst you with the torches and pitchforks. Lately, though, I’ve had a fond recollection for the show. Think about all the great times we had on those Sci-Fi Tuesday nights. Remember when Kelly Kelly was an exhibitionist Continue Reading...

WWE, 2008 – 2009 Text by RD Reynolds and Triple Kelly So yes, it’s Halloween (or thereabouts) and as we always do ’round here, we start scrambling to figure out what to induct for the holiday. This year, it wasn’t even a question: I knew from the day he debuted that Kizarny was the scariest freakin’ thing I’d ever seen. Not Halloweeny enough Continue Reading...

TV Show, 1996 Text by Triple Kelly and RD Reynolds Big Van “The Man They Call” Vader was one of the best monster heels in WCW and the WWF. A behemoth with a true smash mouth style, killer look, and excellent big man ability, he looked to be unstoppable.

TNA, 2008 Text by Triple Kelly and RD Reynolds Over the years, I’ve done a lot of interviews about this here website. I always enjoy doing them, as it’s a lot of fun to blabber on regarding the stupidity I’ve seen this last decade.

WCW, 1999 Text by Triple Kelly and RD Reynolds The subject of celebrity appearances in wrestling promotions is a hot topic for fans of the sport.

WWE, 2010 Text by Emerson Whitner & RD Reynolds Way back in 2010 Vince McMahon finally pulled the plug on ECW and in it’s place announced the creation of a new pseudo-reality show: NXT.

American Wrestling Federation, 1994-1996 Text by Art0Donnell & RD Reynolds Check out Art0Donnell’s Facebook Page Here! The landscape of mainstream pro wrestling was indeed bleak in 1995.

Hornswoggle vs. Chavo: 2009 Gooker Award Winner

WWE, 2009 Text by RD Reynolds with Triple Kelly Note from RD: Hard to believe that we’re already doing our tenth Gooker Award. Harder to believe still that there’s never been a main character that has repeated in the ‘honor’. Even more unfathomable is the fact that unless something changes drastically, there’s a pretty good shot at the guy three-peating at some point. Continue Reading...

WWE, 2008  Text by RD Reynolds Not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it, but it seems that one of Vince McMahon’s lifelong goals is to get rid of your friend and mine, Jim Ross.

WWE, 2007 Mega Thanks to Bill Brown for His Assitance with This Induction! It may sound absurd, or more accurately perhaps, pretentious, but I pretty much know every year going into the Gooker Award voting who is going to win. Yes, it’s been up for you, my fellow Crappers, to decide the past few years. And while there have been some suprises Continue Reading...

WWE, 2006 Odds are that you remember exactly where you were when you heard the news on November 13, 2005. I do. I certainly do.
