CLASSIC INDUCTION: He-Man Christmas – We Wish You a Merry Atheist Day and a Happy New Year

14 Submitted by on Tue, 19 December 2017, 08:07
Cartoon, 1985 Text by Blade Braxton It’s no secret to listeners of Wrestlecrap Radio, that I am a huge fan of the original He-Man and Masters Of The Universe cartoon. I regard the original set of episodes as some of the best cartoons of the 1980’s. The abomination you’re about to see today however, is quite different. Straying far away from Continue Reading...

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

32 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: Silent Night Bloody Night – Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, How Lovely is Your Barbed Wire

11 Submitted by on Sat, 16 December 2017, 15:45
TNA, 2007 Text by RD Reynolds Confession time here at the Crap.  Last year during the Gooker Award voting, I was concerned. No, more than that, I was scared, mortified, almost, at what appeared to be an inevitability: a TNA angle was going to win WrestleCrap’s biggest (and by biggest I do mean ‘only’) award. The storyline was the Robert Roode-Traci 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: Babes in Toyland – Georgy Porgie Puddin’ Pie, Shows RD His Cameltoe and Makes Him Cry

12 Submitted by on Fri, 15 December 2017, 08:45
Theatrical Motion Picture, 1986 Special Note from RD: This is yet another trek down memory lane, as I take a look at one of the worst holiday movies ever made. This has nothing to do with wrestling, but in the spirit of the season, I thought it might be fun to cover. If you just want wrestling, hit the back 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...

Classic Induction: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians – Yes, This is a Real Movie

9 Submitted by on Thu, 14 December 2017, 19:00
Movie, 1964  Quick Note from RD: As is the tradition ’round these parts this time of year, I take time away from WrestleCrap and delve into the equally amusing and absurd world of HolidayMovieCrap. Enjoy! Ah yes, the holidays are upon us once again. For many, the highlight is waiting to see what’s waiting for themselves under the tree. For 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...

Classic Induction: Needles the Tailor: The Superstars’ Stitch Bitch

5 Submitted by on Tue, 05 December 2017, 09:00
WWF, 1992 Text by Harry Simon It has been said that “clothes make the man.” But what about the man who makes the clothes that makes the man? What’s his story? Well, in the WWF’s case, he was a nervous little fella who talked like an unholy cross between Professor Frink from The Simpsons and every neurotic middle-aged guy in every Woody Allen 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...

Classic Induction: The Nasty Boys Invade a Science Center

7 Submitted by on Tue, 21 November 2017, 15:00
WCW, 1995  I admit it: I screwed up. In the middle of working on the editing of the new WrestleCrap Celebrity Roast DVD (which comes with the 2010 WrestleCrap Archive Discs FREE – preorder it here!), I ignored my email completely for over a week. In doing so, I missed this email from Triple Kelly: “Hey Deal! How is everything? Continue Reading...

CLASSIC INDUCTION: The Star Wars Holiday Special – Welcome to the Dark Side

29 Submitted by on Fri, 17 November 2017, 04:00
Television Special, 1978 Note from RD: As you can probably surmise from the title, this has nothing to do with wrestling. But since reviewing bad Christmas movies has become a holiday tradition here at the Crap, I thought there was nothing more appropriate to cover than this stinkbomb from the late 70’s. Enjoy! November 17, 1978 is a date that 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...

Classic Induction: No Holds Barred – A Tale of Crapped Pants and Teeny Weiners

27 Submitted by on Sat, 11 November 2017, 02:00
It’s a travesty. It’s a travesty of the highest magnitude, and, I believe it is fair to say, without hyperbole, a crime against mankind itself. Here we are, 15 years removed from the release of the first movie featuring Hulk Hogan in a starring role, and where, I ask, is the anniversary DVD release? (Note from 2013 RD: It’s right Continue Reading...

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

36 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...

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

24 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...

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...
