SQUASH of the Week – Big Van Vader vs. Scott McKever

WCW – 08-29-92 Look for a little bit of brutality in your SQUASH of the Week?  We got ya covered for sure as Leon White makes his first ever appearance in these here parts! Vader’s opponent…or more realistically, victim, today would be young Scott McKever.  Pasty, doughy, and with a fantastic mullet.  Yeah, I don’t like your chances kid. And right Continue Reading...

SQUASH of the Week – Diesel vs. Bob Backlund

Madison Square Garden – November 26, 1994 We’re stockpiling quite of few of these one-sided battles here at, but I believe this is the first where a title – a world championship, no less! – has been decided.  And in this case, in less than ten seconds! In the fall of 1994, Bob Backlund did the unthinkable.  He returned Continue Reading...

SQUASH of the Week: Rob Van Dam vs. Jeff Hardy

Monday Night Raw – May 12, 1997 Lately I’ve been on a bit of a shoot interview binge.  Like so many things in life those kinda came and went, evolving into nonstop podcasts where the hosts tell the same stories 37 times under different click baity titles.  Still, this recent dive has brought me a lot of laughs, sometimes from Continue Reading...

SQUASH of the Week – Sandman vs. Macho Libre

ECW, 2006 I know that header up there says “ECW”, but let’s get real.  This rebooted, completely WWE-ized version of 2006 of ECW was about as extreme as a spicy chicken sandwich from Wendy’s.  All that said, it wasn’t without some real comedy.  Who could forget Kevin the vampire, the exhibitionist that couldn’t figure out how to remove her bra, Continue Reading...

SQUASH of the Week – Yokozuna Debuts!

6 Submitted by on Wed, 02 November 2022, 08:00
WWF, 1992 This is a classic case of not catching something the first time around. For years, I’d viewed Yokozuna is little more than a waste of time.  Upon his initial run, I was never all that impressed.  Sure, he was huge, but any time I saw him coming to the ring I pretty much used it as a bathroom Continue Reading...

SQUASH of the Week: Hulk Hogan vs. Rusty Brooks

3 Submitted by on Wed, 19 October 2022, 08:00
WWF, 1985 I remember this one like it was yesterday.  Hulk Hogan appearing on WWF TV?  In an actual MATCH?  This may sound absurd, but mid 1980s Hogan was the epitome of a special attraction, with his appearances being kept rare to make him even more special.  During his first run as WWF champ, I believe this may be the Continue Reading...

SQUASH of the Week: Doink the Clown vs. Scott Dane

2 Submitted by on Wed, 12 October 2022, 08:00
WWF – June 26, 1993 Since the inception of SQUASH of the Week, we’ve seen matches you’d kinda expect to see.  The Road Warriors, Steiners, Skyscrapers…gigantic men pummeling smaller geeks into oblivion.  So when you see Doink the Clown show up here you may be scratching your head a bit.  But this ain’t that ridiculous babyface, happy good guy Doink.  Continue Reading...

SQUASH of the Week: Koko Ware vs. the Patriot

CWA – February 1, 1986 I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking that if this guy is ever showing up in a SQUASH of the Week, it’s gonna be as the guy looking up at the lights.  And you’d usually be right. Usually.  Just not today. As you’re about to witness, on February 1, 1986, Koko was in a bad Continue Reading...

SQUASH of the Week: Bastion Booger vs. Mike Khoury

5 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

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

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

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

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...

NWA, 1989 Welcome to yet another new column here at, 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...
