Induction: Matt Hardy vs. Sammy Guevara – Broken Matt Hardy, literally

21 Submitted by on Thu, 22 September 2022, 20:00
AEW, 2020 At the end of 2020, we at WrestleCrap nominated The Matt Hardy vs. Sammy Guevara feud for the Gooker Award, representing the worst in wrestling. Ultimately, readers decided that a match that could have killed a wrestler was not nearly as bad as RETRIBUTION. Fair enough. But while most people (except Matt Hardy) remember the shocking accident in Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: No Holds Barred Trailer

2 Submitted by on Tue, 20 September 2022, 09:00
Oh man, the original trailer for the greatest movie Vince McMahon even wrote while coked up in a hotel room (allegedly). Even more amazing in retrospect is you can tell they were trying VERY hard to appeal not just to wrestling fans, but to a larger audience. An untapped audience that really wanted to see Hulk Hogan get it on Continue Reading...

Raw opens with a recap of last week, including that brief footage of Bret Hart’s knee surgery. Two things to note: Bret’s name is spelled wrong, and the footage that the announcers last week found so gruesome appears to consist of the nurse shaving Bret’s leg before the incision. Like last week, the recap includes time stamps for all the Continue Reading...

1985, CBS From time to time, I’ve heard pro wrestling called a cartoon come to life.  With today’s induction, there’s no arguing with that analogy.  But for once, it’s not just the old Hulk Hogan’s Rock & Wrestling animated series we’ll be discussing, but rather an hour-long special that aired promoting the 1985 fall Saturday morning cartoon block for CBS.  Continue Reading...

WWF – December 11, 1994 One of the fun things about doing this column is finding random matches you never knew existed.  Had someone told me that Jeff Hardy and King Kong Bundy faced off I’d have asked what Jeff was smoking. Err, I mean what the person who told me that was smoking. But yes, it was December of 1994 Continue Reading...

WWF Magazine, September 1992 The year 1992 in the World Wrestling Federation was in hindsight a very odd one.  At the beginning of the year, we had arguably the greatest Royal Rumble of all time with Ric Flair entering at number 3 and outlasting the field to become world champion.

What a difference a week makes. Just seven days ago, I was looking forward to a trip to Chicago and All Out with my son.  We had an absolutely incredible time, more due to the 500 mile road trip where we just kinda took our time and goofed off.  We met some very cool folks, and I was able to introduce Continue Reading...

Major League Wrestling, 2021 It’s not often we induct something from Major League Wrestling into WrestleCrap. In fact, this is the first time.   It’s also not often we induct a referee; the only other one to my knowledge is Steve McMichael (Stay strong, Mongo!) for his leisurely officiating in TNA.  And it’s slightly more often we induct something involving Continue Reading...

Brian Pillman opens the show, revealing that he is a sensitive and religious man, praying for Bret Hart’s recovery, for all the bloodthirsty fans who cheered Stone Cold’s actions, and for Steve Austin’s total destruction (i.e. death).
