Nickelodeon/WWF, 1989 With two former wrestlers like Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan handling announcing duties for years in the WWF, constantly at odds, don’t you find it odd that they never squared off in the ring to settle their differences?

Syndicated TV, 1998 For me, the tag team of Bret & Owen Hart is one of the most frustrating “what ifs” in wrestling. Despite having such individual technical skill and natural chemistry, the two most famous of Stu and Helen’s boys only tagged a handful of times, including a great match against the Steiner Brothers seen only on Coliseum video. Continue Reading...

Syndicated TV, 1987 This week’s induction is “Mama Mania,” the ninth episode of the fourth season of Mama’s Family. Why is a situation comedy being featured on a wrestling website? Bear with me, perplexed reader, as your confusion shall be dispelled in due time. The show begins with the Harper family sitting down to a macaroni dinner. Supper time is Continue Reading...
