Jordan’s funny Guanajuato write-up reminded me:

When the acclaimed early 90s cartoon “Batman: The Animated Series” did an episode with Bane (a Latin American villain), they had the great taste to design him as a luchador. And they obviously had wrestling on their minds when Batman fights Bane at the climax. Batman actually pulls a couple hurricanranas, and Bane clotheslines Batman after “throwing him off the ropes”. (Yeah, they went a little overboard there.)

As you can see, ICO-PRO is Bane’s key to success, but also his weakness.

This one’s for you, R.D!

    This Bane > Bane from Batman & Robin (aka Jeep Swenson, who played in the WC Inducted No Holds Barred).

  2. Vealchop says:

    Early superhero costumes from he 1930s and 40s were based on those of pro wrestlers and circus performers. Hence the underwear in the outside for so many years.

  3. John C says:

    And Batman did have to resort to using an international object to get the advantage. I believe Bane may have been in violation of the WWE’s Wellness Policy however Impact had no issue with this alleged usage of a PED. Ace & Gary probably would let the girl go also.

  4. Mister Forth says:

    Hunico replaced one of them halfway through the episode.

  5. Guest says:

    One thing I always wished is that someone would take the scene with the hurricaranas and sync to a match from WCW where Tony Schiavone and some other commentator had trouble figuring out the difference between a hurricarana and a head scissor takedown.
