It Came From YouTube: WWF Wrestling Buddies commercials

9 Submitted by on Mon, 20 May 2013, 14:21

I’m sure many of you had these WWF Wrestling Buddies at one point.

What I want to know is; how did the kids set up the ring ropes and turnbuckles around their bed like that?

Hey; here’s an idea- the next time the cops show up at your house because of a perfectly valid noise complaint, toss your Big Bossman Wrestling Buddy right at their faces (say you learned to do it from watching Family Matters- “We hate cops!”).

Let me know how that works out for you…

Which Wrestling Buddies (or similar toys like the NWA and WCW ones) did you have or do you still have? Leave a comment below and let us know!

    I had a version of this from WCW as a kid, with nWo Hulk Hogan. He would make noises if you punched him.

    I had an Ultimate Warrior one when I was around 11/12 years old, and I beat the living crap out of it! I did every wrestling move imaginable to that thing and it was awesome!

    I still have the Million Dollar Man and my brother still has his Ultimate Warrior and we got it around when we probably got it 1990.

    I used to have those stiff rubber ones that you couldn’t move, way back in the day. I had Hogan, Piper, Studd and JYD. I even had some AWA figures, some of these, and the ring on the right:

    Ok, so the first one was the dad coming in and rolling around playing, yeah, I get that one. The second one, though?

    Yeah, a fully grown guy, even though he’s a cop, comes into the room and starts pillow wrestling and rolling around on the bed with a bunch of kids.

    Time to call Internal Affairs, methinks…

    That’s the late great Arnold Stang (Top Cat himself) doing the voiceover in the first commercial. Really cool.

    I remember buying the Ultimate Warrior one on vacation in Cape May, NJ. My mom was pissed at me for buying this 30$ plush with the money my dad gave me. I still have Macho Man, Jake the Snake, Hulk Hogan and the Warrior !
