Induction: The 1992 WBF Championship – Posers beware

23 Submitted by on Thu, 19 April 2018, 20:00
Titan Sports, 1992 The World Bodybuilding Federation was Vince McMahon’s ill-advised foray into the sport of bodybuilding. I say, “ill-advised” for a number of reasons. For one, it launched just as former WWF steroid supplier Dr. George Zahorian was standing trial, leading to the WWF’s steroid scandal of the early 90s and McMahon’s indictment on distribution charges. That, and nobody Continue Reading...

WWF, 1988 Anyone who knows wrestling will tell you that Wrestlemania is WWE’s biggest pay-per-view every year.

Syndicated TV, 1987 This week’s induction is “Mama Mania,” the ninth episode of the fourth season of Mama’s Family. Why is a situation comedy being featured on a wrestling website? Bear with me, perplexed reader, as your confusion shall be dispelled in due time. The show begins with the Harper family sitting down to a macaroni dinner. Supper time is Continue Reading...

Induction: Mr. Rocko – Val Venis rocks out with his sock out

WWF, 1999 This week’s induction stems from WWF Raw’s highest-ever rated segment (or at least its highest-ever rated segment with no wrestling), the much-celebrated “This is Your Life” segment put on by Mankind for The Rock. Over the past two decades, WWE has repeatedly attempted to recapture the magic of this first “This is Your Life” segment… …with each version Continue Reading...
