If musicians of different genres got together as one in 1985 to record “We Are the World”, the WWF’s heels and faces came damn close to breaking kayfabe by collaborating on this Wrestlecraptacular version of the ’60s classic “Land of a Thousand Dances.” I’ll leave it up to my fellow Crappers to add their observations, but a few things stand out here:

– Apparently, that’s Meat Loaf on drums. No wonder he looked familiar.
– Iron Sheik hits a lot of bum notes…if you can call them that.
– Jimmy Hart is, by far, the most competent singer in the WWF’s Class of 1985. Everyone else should (have kept) their day jobs. (That said, Uncle Elmer’s pig may have been the second-best singer in this video.)
– Vince McMahon. ‘Nuff said.

…and did I say “damn close to breaking kayfabe”? That’s because the video ends with a good old fashioned schmozz.

Ah yes! Another classic music video from The Wrestling Album!

All I can possibly add to that is… well said!

    Vince seems like such a prick in the video he could have used a good old fashioned humbling old country way.
