SQUASH of the Week: Bastion Booger vs. Mike Khoury

0 Submitted by on Wed, 28 September 2022, 08:00
WWF, September 19, 1993 Bastion Booger may seem an unlikely candidate for a SQUASH of the Week, but I think when we get to the end of this one, you’ll be onboard with this selection. For those who weren’t tortured in following the WWF in 1993, journeyman wrestler Mike Shaw was brought into the company to be the ugliest, most Continue Reading...

SQUASH of the Week: King Kong Bundy vs. Jeff Hardy

4 Submitted by on Wed, 14 September 2022, 08:00
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...

SQUASH of the Week: Steiners vs. Tony Devito and PJ Walker

5 Submitted by on Wed, 07 September 2022, 08:00
WWF, 1993 There’s an old saying – “aint’ no squash like a Steiner Bros. squash”.  But this one we are looking at today is I dare say extra special. From an early Monday Night Raw, we get Rick and Scott taking on the team of Tony Devito and PJ Walker, whom you may know better as WrestleCrap inductee Aldo Montoya (Portuguese Continue Reading...

Squash of the Week: Giant vs. Chris Benoit

6 Submitted by on Wed, 31 August 2022, 09:00
WCW, 1996 You may look at this match up and think there’s no possible way this was ever a squash match, let alone a vaunted Squash of the Week. But it is. Ohhhhhhhh….it sure is. The entire match consists of exactly two moves. The first would be this ridiculous drop kick.  That is a mighty big man going vertical.  Crazy Continue Reading...

Squash of the Week: Lex Luger vs. Roadblock

2 Submitted by on Wed, 24 August 2022, 09:00
WCW, 1996 You may not expect a Lex Luger prelim match to be worthy of Squash of the Week status, but trust me, this one is more than worth it. Today, he’s battling a big ol’ 400 pounder by the name of Road Block.  You might think Lex might have problems throwing a big guy like that around (well, I Continue Reading...

Squash of the Week: Earthquake vs. Mark Young

9 Submitted by on Wed, 17 August 2022, 09:00
WWF, 1990 One of the best things about running this silly website for so long has been the opportunities to meet so many awesome folks.  And there may be none greater than “Earthquake” John Tenta. I am so blessed I was able to call him my friend. And what better way to honor him again than with one of his Continue Reading...

Squash of the Week: Goldberg vs. Reese

4 Submitted by on Wed, 10 August 2022, 09:00
WCW, 1998 If you weren’t around for the rise of Bill Goldberg back in the late 90’s, you really missed out.  Dude was a massive star and got over in the simplest manner possible – he just went in and beat the ever loving crap out of everyone in his path. Goldberg squashes were always fun, and one of his Continue Reading...

Squash of the Week: Skyscrapers vs. the Ding Dongs

NWA, 1989 Welcome to yet another new column here at WrestleCrap.com, the Squash of the Week!   As many of you know, the late, great Blade Braxton used to do a column called Jobber of the Week where he’d glorify those who glorified others, namely the enhancement talent of the days of yore.  I wanted to do something to honor Blade Continue Reading...

Jobber of the Week Classic: The Easter Bunny

18 Submitted by on Sun, 01 April 2018, 02:00
This week’s Jobber Of The Week holds the distinction of being the oldest individual to ever make his debut in the wrestling world. And people say Diamond Dallas Page got a late start. Try entering the business at the ripe age of over 500 years old. Yes kiddies, get your Easter baskets ready for one rotten egg of a JOTW. Continue Reading...

Jobber of the Week: Sean

9 Submitted by on Tue, 26 September 2017, 09:00
Note from Blade: While Sean never actually wrestled, his moment of infamy dribbing the ball with Ted DiBiase is BEYOND legendary. It’s springtime again. This means a number of things – warmer weather, fat people wearing tank tops, and oh yeah, the time hoops fans have waited all year for. Two words – Final Four. Caught up in all the Continue Reading...

Jobber of the Week: The Messengers of the Black Scorpion

9 Submitted by on Tue, 29 August 2017, 09:00
Note from Blade: Somebody had to tell the history of all the jobbers that worked under the hood during the Scorpion angle. MIght as well be Scorpy’s biggest fan. It’s hard to believe it’s been fifteen years since the debut of my all-time favorite wrestler ever – and my idol – the Black Scorpion. Ahhhh, seems like it was only Continue Reading...

In Memory Of Iron Mike Sharpe (1951 – 2016)

20 Submitted by on Tue, 19 January 2016, 02:47
WrestleCrap was saddened Monday by the news that “Canada’s greatest athlete,” Iron Mike Sharpe, had passed away. When I started our Jobber Of The Week column here at WrestleCrap over twelve years ago, I don’t think anyone was more requested to be profiled than the man with the loaded forearm pad, Iron Mike. Any wrestling fan who grew up in Continue Reading...

Jobber of the Week: The Shadow

Note from Blade: WrestleCrap legend, the late Pistol Pez Whatley, throws on the worst Parts Unknown outfit ever and gets pummeled on WCW Saturday Night. After all these years, I’ve learned one thing: wrestling needs more guys named “Pez.” Note from Blade: This Tuesday, one of Wrestlecrap’s most beloved wrestlers sadly passed away. “Pistol” Pez Whatley, age 54, finally succumbed Continue Reading...

Jobber of the Week: Barry Horowitz

I can’t believe it’s been over two years since I began writing these silly Jobber of the Week columns. Nor can I believe that it’s been almost that long since the most requested prelimmer of all time has been reposted! The year was 1979. While the Bob Backlunds and Harley Races of the wrestling world were busy redefining the word Continue Reading...

Jobber of the Week: Mr. X

10 Submitted by on Wed, 03 September 2014, 13:00
Note from Blade: Hands down, my favorite jobber ever. Actually, he’s one of my favorite wrestlers of all-time…period. I started JOTW with one goal in mind…to honor him. I’ve profiled a lot of enhancement talent, doing this column every week. We’ve laughed, cringed, and ultimately paid a long overdue tribute to many a curtain jerker here at the Crap. But Continue Reading...

Jobber of the Week: The Conquistadors

7 Submitted by on Sat, 02 August 2014, 13:00
Note from Blade: Greatest jobber tag-team ever. Stay gold, Pony Boy! In the history of pro wrestling there has been countless masked tag-team menaces. Generic “assassins,” “executioners,” and “gladiators” have filled the sport for decades. There is one team however that will live on in infamy long after all the masked men have hung up their hoods for good. Yes, Continue Reading...

Jobber of the Week: Frankie Williams

9 Submitted by on Tue, 22 July 2014, 13:00
Note from Blade: First jobber we ever profiled and arguably one of the greatest. Before I made my selection on who would be the first ever Wrestlecrap Jobber Of The Week, I had to be sure my candidate had the right qualifications, so I pulled out my handy guidebook “Requirements To Be A Preliminary Wrestler In The 80’s-WWF Version.” Lets Continue Reading...

Note from Blade: A look back at one of Mick Foley’s infamous WCW tag-team partners, with candid comments from Cactus Jack himself. Last week, we took a look back to Cactus Jack’s first appearance in WCW, and the total disaster of a time he had with his Jobber Of The Week partner, Rick Fargo. Despite being 100% disappointed and completely Continue Reading...

Jobber of the Week: The Gambler

12 Submitted by on Tue, 01 July 2014, 13:00
Note from Blade: You can’t think about watching WCW Saturday Night in the 90’s without thoughts of this guy getting squashed on a weekly basis. You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em. Know when to walk away, know when to……get your ass kicked?!? Those aren’t exactly the lyrics Kenny Rogers crooned way back in Continue Reading...

  Welcome back to the rebooted Jobber Of The Week column here at the new and improved WrestleCrap. I was sitting back thinking that I really should profile a well-known enhancement talent for the big return. Iron Mike Sharpe? The Mulkeys? Sorry, those guys will have to wait for another day. I’ve been on a Bill Watts’ UWF kick lately. Continue Reading...

Welcome to the brand spanking new WrestleCrap. In the coming days and weeks ahead, me, along with my fellow yearbook staffer, the Filthy Ape, will be doing something I’ve always wanted to do – paying tribute to the entire population of the greatest town known to mankind, Parts Unknown.
