Is it safe to say that Shawn Michaels does not look thrilled that The Ultimate Warrior is trying to wrap tape around his head, neck n’ body? And that Marty Jannetty is trying desperately to be noticed?

This promo is confusing, odd, uncomfortable and might also be crap.


You have no idea how much seeing this video clip brightened up my day! I love it!

Ultimate Warrior insanity always makes for a great promo in my book.

    This almost looks like an exercise from an improv class. “You’re doing a wrestling promo, and your prop is… a roll of athletic tape. And go!”

    I guess Warrior got confused when they told him they were going to tape that interview together. Lesson, never tell him to wrap things up.

      Maybe some scotch would have calmed him down.

      I like that Shawn duct to try and avoid it.

      It was effective at masking Marty’s inability to cut a promo.

      End of the day, they’re gonna send the Heenan Family packing.

    Thanks, Paul, for the upload. Happy to help.

    I know pro wrestling is prone to some soft core porno level of acting but watch Shawn Michaels as Jim Neidhart cuts his promo. He’s watching the Warrior walk with his athletic tape out and he’s genuinely confused. And as Shawn tries to bark out his own tough talk his irritation with Warrior wrapping tape around his face and neck is evident. Poor Marty trying to peek through Warrior’s shoulder and HBK’s face as it to say “I’m here, I’m here! Don’t forget about me…”

    I’ll say this, it’s a memorable promo which is more than I can say for a lot of them!

  5. AdamX says:

    Shawn is feeling here what we feel when his best bud cuts a promo.

  6. Geoff says:

    Yeah but while Shawn is uncomfortable and Marty is unnoticable, did you notice Jim. He just kept talking, didn’t miss a beat while Warrior was wrapping tape around his head and then when Warrior was talking, the tape went over his ear and under his nose and unlike Shawn, didn’t move it. I’d say that Jim was in his element. He and Warrior would have made a great team. The Ultimate Anvils. With their powers coming from the norse Gods (mostly Odin) and their manager would be Thor

  7. Doc75 says:

    unfortunately they caught them on all tape doing a badly done promo

  8. GeneMean says:

    Did Warrior just say he came from the “dark, deep ass?”

  9. Geoff says:

    If you heard it on, then it must be true.

  10. Johnny Ace says:

    I wonder if he trapped them all in tape;
    then had his way with them like he did Santa in Warrior’s comics?
