It Came From YouTube: WWF Superstars Arcade Attract Mode

1 Submitted by on Tue, 27 September 2022, 09:00
I know a lot of folks prefer WrestleFest, but for my money the best arcade wrestling game in history is Superstars. It’s much faster, has better reversals, and is just more fun. Plus it has Randy Savage and Andre the Giant. And look at Virgil counting the money! And that’s not even including Elizabeth looking at your junk when you Continue Reading...

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...

Oh yes, this one, where he gave us all a lesson in US history. I love that AEW captioned it with “What did he say?” Honest to goodness, it’s almost a year and a half later and I still don’t really know....

It Came From YouTube: Tony Schiavone Turns HEEL in TNA

From the “wow, this sure didn’t age well” file would come this nugget from NWA-TNA with Tony Schiavone turning heel for, well, no real reason that I could comprehend. On the plus side his shirt rocked. I like it much more than the earrings he’s sporting these days....

In celebration of the 4th of July, here’s a goofy segment in which the Undertaker joins the All Americans prior to Survivor Series 1993.  While Taker bedecked with a Betsy Ross flag is the notable centerpiece, pay attention to Lex Luger’s reaction – he celebrates like he just won his first world title! Have a great 4th, everyone!...

Crapper LeVar Ravel (The Doctor of Style) writes: When Mankind debuted, he filmed a series of wacked-out vignettes in dark rooms, including one where he spoke to a black rat named George. It turns out George was none other than Jim Cornette’s pet rat. In this audio clip, Cornie reflects on the last days of George. It’s surreal to hear Continue Reading...

It’s a commercial for the Tonka Wrestling Buddies dolls! Mom is trying to make dinner and is sick and tired of the noise and Earthquake (yes, Tenta-sized) shaking of the foundation of her house caused by the kids upstairs. She tells her husband Henry to take care of it. So instead of disciplining his kids and telling them to knock Continue Reading...
