CLASSIC INDUCTION: WWF Christmas Party 2001: They Sure Don’t Have Parties Like THIS Anymore!

14 Submitted by on Mon, 25 December 2017, 01:03
WWF, 2001 Text by RD Reynolds Office Christmas parties ain’t what they used to be. While I was never privy to the insanity that apparently took place back in the 70’s (according to TV and film, those things had everything from guys xeroxing their anuses to drugs to orgies to guys xeroxing their anuses with drugs while having an orgie), I Continue Reading...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: Christmas Bounty – Because When You Think Christmas (And Bounty Hunting), You Think THE MIZ

40 Submitted by on Sat, 23 December 2017, 08:45
WWE Studios, 2013 The image above is unlike any I’ve ever led an induction with, but I think it may be the most appropriate ever. If not “appropriate”, it is the most personal.  What you see in this photograph is my living room.  That’s my crusty old Mitsubishi rear projection that is what the Reynolds family watches every night.  No, we’ve never Continue Reading...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: Santa Buddies: You Wouldn’t Think Puppies Could Suck the Joy Out of Christmas

13 Submitted by on Sat, 23 December 2017, 08:01
Direct to Hell DVD Release, 2009 Text by RD Reynolds Mrs. Deal: “Let me see if I got this right: you’re going to make fun of a kids’ Christmas movie starring puppies. What is wrong with you?” Oh no…no no no, Mrs. Deal. Don’t you dare paint me as the villain here. I didn’t make this movie. I didn’t make this horrible, horrendous, Continue Reading...

ABC Cartoon, 1982 Text by RD Reynolds Standard December Disclaimer: Every year, I take a week away from doing wrestling inductions to review the very worst of Christmas movies and specials. And this is that week! I do hope you enjoy a very special, and very horrible, Christmas Comes to Pac-Land! As anyone who has read this site for, oh, 90 Continue Reading...

Induction: Del Río Runs Over Santa Claus – GTA: North Pole

38 Submitted by on Thu, 21 December 2017, 08:45
WWE, 2012 The holidays are a time when WWE encourages its viewers to spend quality time with their families, preferably by turning off the TV altogether. Either that, or they figure that people aren’t concerned with TV wrestling around Christmastime, so why put on a half-way decent program when nobody is watching? Of course, back in, say, 2000, the “nobody” Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Jingle All the Way & Jingle All the Way 2 – We Watched Them Both And Didn’t Hear “It’s Not a Tumor” or “Get ‘Er Done” Even Once

68 Submitted by on Wed, 20 December 2017, 08:45
Ah December…the time we get to take a break from writing about horrible wrestling and instead go dumpster diving into the world of horrible Christmas movies!  We’ve been doing this I believe since year one at WrestleCrap, so there ain’t no stopping us now.  And this year, you get a double dose, as we do a two-fer-one with myself and Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Eric Young’s Christmas Party – Why Would Santa EVER Go To TNA?

31 Submitted by on Mon, 18 December 2017, 20:00
Impact Wrestling, 2007 Usually I like to spend the first couple hundred words laying the ground work for an induction, especially during Christmas time.  I mean, it’s my favorite time of the year and I love to wax philosophical about snow and decorations and Little Debbie North Pole Nutty Bars and all that jazz. But seriously, look at that.  This Continue Reading...

CLASSIC Induction: An American Christmas Carol – Sit On It, Marley!

68 Submitted by on Mon, 18 December 2017, 08:05
  Made for TV Movie, 1979 Not sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m an absolute fanatic when it comes to A Christmas Carol.  I love the book, but it’s other adaptations of it that really get my chestnuts roasting. Which sounds simultaneously lewd and painful. Anyhoo, I absolutely devour movies featuring the yuletide antics of one Ebenezer Scrooge. It’s Continue Reading...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: Back to the Future Christmas – Great Scott! This Show Sucks!

23 Submitted by on Sat, 16 December 2017, 08:35
Cartoon, 1992 Note from RD: It’s that time of year again – CHRISTMAS!  As is the tradition around these parts, my last induction of the year prior to Christmas is always a non-wrestling one that focuses on a terrible Christmas movie or TV special.  Take a break from awful wrestling with an awful yule log instead! As I write this, I am Continue Reading...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: Santa’s Workshop Street Fight: On Don West’s Christmas Wish List: SPANK ACTION!

3 Submitted by on Thu, 14 December 2017, 19:06
TNA, 2007 Text by RD Reynolds Over the years, at times, I’ve felt as though I’m running out of material on this here site. Generally when I feel that way, I then get a flood of requests for things I either a) never saw; b) don’t remember; or more often c) saw, thought “Man that was atrocious and I never ever Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Good Santa vs. Bad Santa – Cancel Christmas? How About Raw Instead?

35 Submitted by on Thu, 07 December 2017, 20:00
WWE, 2013 I’m probably setting myself up for a lot of hate mail, but I was talking with a friend the other day about how it feels as though the legendary A Christmas Story is somewhat played out.  Don’t get me wrong, I still love that movie and consider it an all-time classic.  But it’s been aired non-stop for years and Continue Reading...

Induction: Stephanie vs. Vickie – Lie, Cheat, and Puke

33 Submitted by on Thu, 30 November 2017, 20:00
WWE, 2014 It was June 2014, and Vickie Guerrero was approaching the end of her long and unexpectedly successful tenure as an on-screen character and authority figure. Now, I distinctly recall watching in person the previous summer as the McMahons fired Vickie from the Raw GM position. It was one of those oh-so-riveting performance reviews that WWE loves to center Continue Reading...

Induction: Triple H vs. Kozlov – Can’t Hardy Wait

26 Submitted by on Thu, 16 November 2017, 20:00
WWE, 2008 For long-time fans of WWE, Jeff Hardy’s journey through the ranks was one of the most inspirational in wrestling history. After starting at the very bottom, debuting at age 16 as a last-minute replacement for an enhancement talent in 1994… …the decided underdog Jeff toiled in obscurity before capturing the tag team titles with brother Matt in 1999… Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: WWF’s No Holds Barred Hype – The BS-o-Meter is About to Get RIP’ed!

35 Submitted by on Thu, 09 November 2017, 20:00
WWF, 1989 Before I jump into tonight’s induction, I would simply like to thank all the readers and writers on this site for their unbelievable support during the recent tragedy of my Mom’s passing.  The outpouring of love and kindness was nothing short of amazing.  I thank you all. It feels like I’ve been covering Hulk Hogan’s movie career for Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Trick Or Street Fight – Wrestling meets Smashing Pumpkins (but in WWE, with no Billy Corgan)

16 Submitted by on Thu, 02 November 2017, 20:00
WWE, 2014-???? October 31st, 2002 – that was the night I put away childish things and became a man. Or, at least, that was the night I decided I valued wrestling over candy. That Thursday, I gave my trusty Bob Dole costume a rest (and not just because the ’96 election had long since ceased to be relevant) and skipped Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: WCW.com – A Dead Site Lives at WrestleCrap.com!

74 Submitted by on Thu, 02 November 2017, 02:00
WCW, 2000 As I think everyone knows, Matt over at Dinosaur Dracula (formerly x-entertainment) and I have been buddies for years.  I mean, it’s not like we talk all the time, or even have each other on speed dial…so maybe “buddies” is a stretch.  Still, we’ve respected each other’s work since I started WrestleCrap.com back in 2000.  I consider him, Continue Reading...

Induction: The Greater Power – Aw, son of a…

WWF, 1998-1999   I. “I really didn’t want to have to do it” On October 19th, 1998, The Undertaker and Paul Bearer announced the creation of a Ministry of Darkness that would serve Taker’s evil purposes, whatever those may have been. For the next four months, The Undertaker would grow his Ministry until it was powerful enough to take on Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: WarGames 2000 – Russo’s Revenge Indeed

23 Submitted by on Thu, 12 October 2017, 20:00
  WCW, 2000 The recent announcement of NXT bringing back WarGames set the inter webs into a tizzy recently, and with good reason.  The original bout was a legendary contest, a staple of the NWA and later WCW.  Due to the fact that it was so closely tied to a promotion WWE had a blood feud with, it was reportedly Continue Reading...

Induction: The Terri Runnels Pregnancy – Spoiler: Attitude Era angles never lasted 9 months

32 Submitted by on Thu, 05 October 2017, 20:00
WWF 1998-1999 WWE is currently experiencing a baby boom, with both Maryse Mizanin and Maria Kanellis expecting little ones next year. Over the years, WWE has earned a reputation as a supportive environment for new families. In fact, when one female on-screen talent wanted to return to TV after her pregnancy but was self-conscious about her weight, Chief Brand Officer Continue Reading...

Tribute: RD Reynolds’ Favorite Bobby Heenan Moment

48 Submitted by on Wed, 27 September 2017, 20:00
I’ve written about it before, but whenever I go through a rough patch in life, I turn to Prime Time Wrestling. To those outside of our little hobby/business/sport whatever you want to call it, that has to sound completely bizarre.  What kind of person, what kind of man, would focus on pro wrestling when life starts throwing hard curveballs?  Is that Continue Reading...

Induction: The Toxic Turtles – Hell in a Shell

27 Submitted by on Thu, 14 September 2017, 20:00
WWF, 1993 It’s not often that everyone in the wrestling world suddenly starts talking about a nearly 25 year-old match, especially one with no recognizable stars (both in the “WWE Superstar” sense and in the Dave Meltzer sense)… …but with the arrival of WWE’s new Unreleased 1986-1995 DVD, it seems that everyone from Charly Caruso to Sean Mooney wants to Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Nailz vs. El Gigante – Yes, It Happened…and It’s Every Bit As Horrible As We Hoped!

33 Submitted by on Thu, 07 September 2017, 20:00
NEW JAPAN, 1994 Not gonna lie, this was NOT the induction I was planning for this week. I had a few other ideas.  I was pondering going back one more time to the Piledriver VHS and doing another in-depth, scene by scene breakdown of maybe Girls in Cars or Jive Soul Bro.  I’d kicked around going completely off the rails, and reviewing an Asian Continue Reading...

Induction: Dustin Runnels – Cuckoldust

28 Submitted by on Thu, 31 August 2017, 20:41
WWF, 1998 One of my favorite parts of Raw these days – and that is a small list, let me tell you – is the return of Goldust to his roots as a mysterious film aficionado rather than as wacky comic relief.  See, over the course of just the first three years of his character’s run… …the bizarre, androgynous movie Continue Reading...

INDUCTION: Divas Pajama Pillow Fight – Far More Dangerous Than It Sounds!

36 Submitted by on Thu, 24 August 2017, 20:00
WWE, 2012 This past weekend, the WWE Univer…no, I can’t do that. I don’t care how many times the company tries to shove that gibberish down our throats, it always sounds completely idiotic.  Why can’t we simply be wrestling fans?  Seriously, think about that – we can’t be pro wrestling fans because WWE won’t allow the words “pro wrestling” or Continue Reading...

Induction: Triple H on Pacific Blue – XXX DX HHH vs. BMX PD

32 Submitted by on Thu, 17 August 2017, 21:23
USA Network, 1998 Pacific Blue was a USA Network show notable for two things: Kicking off the 1997 Sunday night lineup called, “Sunday Night Heat” [not to be confused with the wrestling show of the same name, which debuted the following year]… …and for being a police drama about cops who ride bikes – not motorcycles, but bicycles. Make that Continue Reading...
