It Came From YouTube: page 2
Christmas may be over, but we here at Wrestlecrap have one more gift for you. It’s a WWF clip from 1983 where all the stars wish you a Merry Christmas from inside a wreath. All your favorites are here: The Iron Sheik, Captain Lou Albano, Tito Santana, Salvatore Bellomo, Freddie Blassie looking like Mother Teresa…
Your friend and mine Diamond Dallas Page is here to read us The Night Before Christmas. LOVE the suit and hat combo, Dallas. Grab some gluten-free cookies, some soy milk, sit back and listen to the former three-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion.
For Dallas, Payge, and the rest of the DDPY crew, make sure to make this holiday season, what? Your own! NOW HULK IT UP!
It’s Hanukkah! 8 wonderful nights of songs, latkes, and, of course, playing dreidel.
Drew Gulak is a mensch and shows other WWE Superstars the joy of playing this classic Hanukkah game. He’s bringing culture to the locker room during the Festival Of Lights and I am here for it. I’m enjoying the looks of utter confusion melting away into total delight once they start playing.
We even get old NXT tag team The Ascension at their most likeable. They’d still be in the WWE today if they played dreidel every week live on Raw.
Drew, you have an open invitation to come on over next year for some sufganiyot and no-nonsense, mat-based wrestling.
Some of your favorite stars let us know what AEW gave to them for Christmas. Darby says a skateboard. Sure, that makes sense. Jungle Boy and Marko Stunt mention their “pet dinosaur” Luchasaurus, which may go against certain state laws about owning reptiles. Kenny Omega says a V-trigger, which, I guess, means they gave him the move? Or they gave him his knee? Hmmm.
What I do know for sure is that MJF is the best, rightly pointing out that he doesn’t celebrate Christmas and therefore gets nothing. Thank you, Max. I’ll save a plate of Chinese food for you on December 25th.
Now that he’s back with the WWE, lots of people will want to revisit CM Punk’s greatest moments with the company. There’s the “pipebomb” promo or when he won the WWE championship or his feud with Big Daddy V.
Personally, my favorite was the saga of John Cena vs. Punk’s diet soda.
“John! What are you doing?! John, my diet soda! What are you doing?!” gets me every time.
Thanksgiving is just a few days away. What should we be thankful for? Classic wrestling clips on Youtube, of course!
WWF Superstars are telling us what they’re thankful for before Survivor Series. In just a few short seconds, we learn more about these wrestlers than in today’s never-ending 20 minute promos.
We’ve got Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Roddy Piper, Demolition…and “The Model” Rick Martel! I’d be thankful for a big atomizer of Arrogance. If only we had gotten Earthquake and Dino Bravo talking about how Thanksgiving actually took place in October.
WWE needs to bring back these pronto.
The NBA season has begun and what better way to celebrate than with the evilest basketball player of them all, Basket Case?
RD inducted this triple-double of a WCW gimmick not too long ago, but during his match, he was referred to as plain, old Mark Jindrak. This introduction by Bert Prentice proves that he was, in fact, known as Basket Case. It’s not exactly a slam dunk of a promo, more of an underhand grandma throw, but hey, it’s proof enough.
