TV sitcom, 1996 Have you ever looked back on things you enjoyed during childhood, or at least things you thought didn’t suck, and been disappointed? For me, a prime example is the ’90s family sitcom Step By Step.

In 1997 Jakks-Pacific released a line of WWF statues that were pretty unremarkable except for the fact that they were called… “Heroes Of Wrestling”. Gee, what does that remind you of? Okay, so this toy line came out a year before the terrible independent wrestling show (you can read all about that in The WrestleCrap Archives) but I still thought it was a funny Continue Reading...
