This is from USWA TV in Memphis in 1993. The Fink cuts a heel promo on Downtown Bruno (AKA: Harvey Wippleman)!

Whoa!

Who knew Howard Finkel could be such an awesome, smarmy heel?!

    Some of Vinnie Mac’s Memphis promos from that time are worth tracking down. Shades of Mr. McMahon four years before he became an official character.

      Oh, yeah! Those are great! I like them better than the more over-the-top heel Vince stuff we got in WWE years later, actually. The USWA promos are a bit more subtle.

    I knew he could be a smarmy (and creepy) heel, after that time he told Trish “you have the puppies, and I have my weiner.” Ewwww.

    Nice channeling of Andy Kaufman there with the “Mehm-fis Ten-uh-see” bit.

    This is the greatest thing I have ever watched. i want more heel Fink. I want to seem him square off in a promo battle with Hot Rod.
