It Came From YouTube: WWF New York opening

This is from Access Hollywood in 2001 covering the grand opening of WWF New York in Times Square.

Overpriced food, lousy service, and and ugly interior…

But it was good enough for The Big Bossman to show up at!

    Wow, two crap things in one video – WWF New York & The Rock’s “autobiography”.

    Id been there and it was sort of a neat place then again i was 12 too so alot of things were back then

    This was an amazingly gigantic money loser for Vince.

    Here’s to hoping Paul can find us some Nitro Grill stuff. I still have my shot glass from there! Anyone ever have a Booker T-Bone?

    Seriously. That was a menu item.

      Tell me you did not just eat THAT.

      “This was an amazingly gigantic money loser for Vince” – which makes it different from 99% of the Times Square theme restaurants in what way, exactly?

      The one thing I remember about The World (wasn’t that its name?) was, the marquee was still up – and lit at night, IIRC – for well over a year after the place closed.

    I did like their chicken wings the one and only time I went there.

  5. Art0Donnell says:

    Bossman is the last celebrity you want at your restaurant opening. People will assume that chihuahua is a menu item.

  6. Justin Cook says:

    I thought it was ironically funny that when they mentioned not so favorite superstars, they showed a clip of Triple H & Stephanie at that moment.

    Only time I’ve been to WWE (this was when they got the F’ out) New York was for a Stone Sour and Chevelle concert at the joint. Pity, I thought the concert space was really nice, although I don’t think the space was actually connected to the rest of the place.

  8. Peter says:

    It’s funny I live in the NYC area but never went there once. I guess I had so much wrestling stuff at the time that I didn’t care to go.

  9. Down With OPC says:

    I had a chance to go to the Nitro Grill when it was open, I sort of regret not going.

    Man, this rekindled some memories from 2000. I almost cringe at the memories.
