Someone Bought This: Stupid AWA Steel Cage Ring toy

AWA Remco Steel Cage Match playset

This is the AWA  Steel Cage Match Playset.

You put your wrestler in a clamp on a stick (oh I’m sorry, it’s a “corner pole” according to the packaging), poke it through a hole in the cage, and the wrestlers kind of… dry-humped each other.

This looks like it was fun to play with for about 30 seconds.

Okay, more like 10 seconds.

    are you sure it’s not three seconds?

  2. John C says:

    But it least it had a Judges’ Area where you can re-create all the thrilling drama of having judges decide on a time limit draw. Imagine Ken doll, Batman & Harry Potter decide the winner of a Rick Martel-Baron Von Rascke 60 minute broadway. Which one will be the jackass who votes for a tie while the others split their decision. Will Batman make a heel turn and piledrive someone through a table, you make the call!!!!

    the sticks are the “figure controllers” actually i do be;ieve

  4. Drew says:

    Any kid that knows his rasslin’ would take his “figure controller” and beat the bejeezus out of the other kid, triggering a month long program of rematches. A Texas Figure Controller Death Match, an Indian Figure Controller Strap Match, the possibilities are endless. Those two well manicured doofuses on the box would never figure that out.

    • John C says:

      A Figure Controller on a pole match where you have to use figure controllers to climb the pole. This gimmick match is approved by Vince Russo.

      • Jay says:

        If Russo approved it, then you could use various tv show and movie action figures to win the title! Followed by flushing it down the toilet.

    A cage with gaping holes in it? Is this where TNA got the idea for their cage?

  6. johnny says:

    Are the two kids on the box deformed? Alien children from a Twilight Episode don’t cha know.

  7. terrence says:

    Holy Sh!t! I actually had this! And yes, the sticks or poles were useless. But my brother and I just played without them. FYI, at the time I had NO idea what the AWA was. But my family was slightly better off than poor, so I just figured it was a Go-Bots version to the Transformers-esque WWF.

  8. Derek says:

    Why in all that is holy would verne gagne want to release this piece of crap toy ?

    • Drew says:

      When he inflicted his hapless kid, Greg, on the world, I figured Verne had pretty much lost touch with reality.

  9. kmtown says:

    Add a turkey on a pole and you’ve got toymaking gold.

  10. Mister Forth says:

    At least Road Warrior Animal got to be on the box.

  11. TjM says:

    I actually had that as a kid

  12. Sean Bateman says:

    Spoony reviewed the AWA Wrestling VCR Board Game and boy does that game suck

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Yeah, it’s somehow worse than the WrestleMania game. His review is pretty funny.

  13. Dave S says:

    Considering it goes for between $500 and $800 nowadays, the someone who bought it is having the last laugh.
