Someone Bought This: Would you pay to see the WWF SuperSlam Jam music video?

WWF Wrestlemania The Album ad October 1993 WWF Magazine

From the October 1993 issue of WF Magazine, here’s an ad for WrsetleMania: The Album.

I’m posting this for that line of text: “See The Video “SuperSlam Jam” on The Box Selection #152“.

The Box was a Music Video On Demand channel where you could pay anywhere from $.99 to $3.99 to see a music video up to 20 minutes after you ordered it online or by telephone.

This is what you had to do before YouTube if you wanted to see a video on demand, kids!

    Whoa, was the chorus to that song used in the “Space Jam” theme?

    This cassette tape was the soundtrack to my life in 1993.

    Hey, how bout at the beginning of the classic Wrestlemania theme/Linda McMahon’s theme song the screaming voice says “Are you ready for the Survivor Series!!”

    What an egregious fuck up.

    Also, this album was produced by Simon Cowell.

    Bought the VHS on eBay a few years back for about $2. Still haven’t watched it.

    I saw this at my local record store (Sam Goody’s, yep remember those) a few years after the CD came out. I seriously thought about buying it. I guess I should be glad I didn’t because a few decades later it would be on Wrestlecrap.

    Alright everyone, now count up the number of guys in the picture who were still in the WWF after the next WrestleMania!

    Did everybody know Howard Finkel was the magazine’s editorial Technical Advisor?
