It Came From YouTube: It’s raining men (and also rain) when MTV airs a WCW special

Crapper Sean Bateman posted this video to our very own The Craphole forum (join up today!) and when I saw it, I just knew I had to post it.

It’s The Public Enemy vs. High Voltage…. in the rain!

Truly a main event on any episode of WCW Worlwide in the country!

Because nothing goes together better than high voltage and rain! Erm, wait a minute…

This is from some show WCW ran on MTV in 1998 called “The Ultimate Video Bash” (that link is only really helpful if you can read German).

Oh, wait! I found a review of it on DDT Digest and that one is in English! Okay, progress!

The video above caught my attention because someone left The Public Enemy out in the rain.

Sort of like that cake in MacArthur Park, I guess…

    Nah… if they were like the cake in MacArthur Park, Junkyard Dog would’ve done a run in.

    MTV had a couple of WCW specials, I think one was for Spring break and one during the Winter.

  3. Stuart Ratliff says:

    WCW really broke the budget with this show.

      It’s funny that they spent so little on this show considering how much they spent on stupid crap in WCW.

    You know it sucked when Tony didn’t refer to it as the greatest event in the history of wrestling. And really Ski-vone you consider a garbage can to be furniture? I’d love to visit the trailer where I’m sure he lives today.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      I think Tony’s actually doing pretty well for himself these days. He really wasn’t that bad of an announcer until about 1997 when he stopped caring altogether.

    • Alan says:

      Actually, Tony is working at WSB radio in Atlanta & also broadcasts games for the Atlanta Braves farm club. He’s doing well. Tony was underrated as a pxp guy. I thought he was good in his WWF days as well. I’m not sure why or what lead to his WWF departure. He did the pxp on Summerslam 1989 & Royal Rumble 1990 & did color on Wrestling Challenge for awhile, which lead to Bobby Heenan storming off the set in protest.

    and the sad thing about that event it got caneled halfway through the event

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      MTV and WCW were apparently unaware of the concept of forecasting the weather.

  6. Lawrence Miles says:

    Wasn’t Will Smith a reasonably big star even in 1998? And HIGH FRIGGIN VOLTAGE was the best he can do?

  7. Peter says:

    I remember their Spring Break stuff but not this, what a great find. At least they learned their lesson after this disaster. This looks like a low budget indy show, the Spring Break shows were much nicer. Oh, and they had the brains to have a roof over the ring in case of rain.

  8. Franchise says:

    I remember the one in the winter time. Kinda cool as guys would take bumps into the snow

  9. Nick Michalak says:

    Oh, I watched this mess live on MTV. This as supposed to be all wrestling, but since they held it outside and it rained they switched over to the wrestlers standing in neutral corners while music video clips played and people supposedly voted on them via a 900 number. Just a terrible mess.
