I was thumbing through an old issue of WWF Magazine (October 1993, to be exact, and don’t you judge me) and came across this full-page advertisement, offering to put a personalized message of you over a crappy picture from what has been consistently labeled by others as the worst WrestleMania ever (XI gets my vote, but that’s one crapper’s opinion). I can’t imagine anyone spending money on such a thing, and if not for randomly flipping through this issue, would never have guessed something so stupid could actually be pushed on the marks.

Ah, yes. WrestleMania IX… The WrestleMania that was so bad that it made the cover of the first WrestleCrap book. 

Sure, this is kind of hokey, but if I had been 7 years old at the time, and someone gave me one of these things that said “Paul Kraft vs. Hulk Hogan” I’d have been absolutely thrilled and hung that sucker on my wall proudly just because it would’ve been cool to even pretend I was there.

What’s funny is that after his tag-team match where he teamed up with Brutus Beefcake to take on Money Inc. (Ted DiBiase and I.R.S), he just kind of showed up at the end for no reason to defeat new WWF champion Yokozuna after Yokozuna had just beat Bret Hart for the title.

(Your Name Here) Vs. Hulk Hogan would’ve been a much better match, no doubt about it!

Did any of you Crappers have one of these custom photos ordered for you when you were a kid?

    Not to be the nit picking fan boy but Hogan did have a scheduled match on the card.

    Also, I had this magazine too (I had a subscription that year. Lucky me) and forgot about the personalized WM IX plaque. And I wonder if you could only choose from THAT photo.

  2. Chris says:

    No scheduled match? What? Hogan and Beefcake teamed up to challenge Money Inc. for the tag team titles. It was heavily promoted ahead of time.

  3. Double M says:

    Did you forgot the hogan/beefcake vs money inc tag match that was on the ppv or did i missunderstand your comment on hogan not having an scheduled match on the card ?

  4. "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

    Oops! I totally forgot about the tag-team match! Completely slipped my mind. Fixed! Thanks, guys!

    • John says:

      To be fair it was a very forgettable but really long match and the overall show had a rather numbing effect on the viewer. Maybe this was what Bob Backlund was screaming about after his WrestleMania 11 match with The Hit Man when he kept talking about the lights, he just wanted to see his name in lights again.

    Can someone do a someone bought this on Warrior entire site? Really $99 for signed 8 x 10. $899 for a signed Warrior action figure. Good God almight JR Ross this man is insane!
