Someone Bought This: Stupid AWA Steel Cage Ring toy

AWA Remco Steel Cage Match playset

This is the AWA  Steel Cage Match Playset.

You put your wrestler in a clamp on a stick (oh I’m sorry, it’s a “corner pole” according to the packaging), poke it through a hole in the cage, and the wrestlers kind of… dry-humped each other.

This looks like it was fun to play with for about 30 seconds.

Okay, more like 10 seconds.

    are you sure it’s not three seconds?

    But it least it had a Judges’ Area where you can re-create all the thrilling drama of having judges decide on a time limit draw. Imagine Ken doll, Batman & Harry Potter decide the winner of a Rick Martel-Baron Von Rascke 60 minute broadway. Which one will be the jackass who votes for a tie while the others split their decision. Will Batman make a heel turn and piledrive someone through a table, you make the call!!!!

    the sticks are the “figure controllers” actually i do be;ieve

    Any kid that knows his rasslin’ would take his “figure controller” and beat the bejeezus out of the other kid, triggering a month long program of rematches. A Texas Figure Controller Death Match, an Indian Figure Controller Strap Match, the possibilities are endless. Those two well manicured doofuses on the box would never figure that out.

      A Figure Controller on a pole match where you have to use figure controllers to climb the pole. This gimmick match is approved by Vince Russo.

      • Jay says:

        If Russo approved it, then you could use various tv show and movie action figures to win the title! Followed by flushing it down the toilet.

    A cage with gaping holes in it? Is this where TNA got the idea for their cage?

  6. johnny says:

    Are the two kids on the box deformed? Alien children from a Twilight Episode don’t cha know.

    Holy Sh!t! I actually had this! And yes, the sticks or poles were useless. But my brother and I just played without them. FYI, at the time I had NO idea what the AWA was. But my family was slightly better off than poor, so I just figured it was a Go-Bots version to the Transformers-esque WWF.

    Why in all that is holy would verne gagne want to release this piece of crap toy ?

    • Drew says:

      When he inflicted his hapless kid, Greg, on the world, I figured Verne had pretty much lost touch with reality.

  9. kmtown says:

    Add a turkey on a pole and you’ve got toymaking gold.

  10. Mister Forth says:

    At least Road Warrior Animal got to be on the box.

  11. TjM says:

    I actually had that as a kid

  12. Sean Bateman says:

    Spoony reviewed the AWA Wrestling VCR Board Game and boy does that game suck

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Yeah, it’s somehow worse than the WrestleMania game. His review is pretty funny.

  13. Dave S says:

    Considering it goes for between $500 and $800 nowadays, the someone who bought it is having the last laugh.
