For some inexplicable reason, on the rare occasion we post wrestling content, we get many emails asking us to do more. For the life of us, we can’t figure out why this is. In response to these emails, we have decided that we will NOT do any wrestling analysis. Who really cares anyway? It’s fake.
What we will do, however, is very quickly every Wednesday induct a new embarrassing wrestling moment into the prestigious Max Wrestling Hall of Shame. Hopefully, this whets some of your appetites while we spend our time focusing on real sports.
This week’s induction: Fake Diesel
After losing former WWE Champion Diesel to rival WCW, WWE found a Diesel lookalike and paraded him out to the ring as if nothing had happened. The person they dressed as Diesel later turned out to be a sure-fire Hall of Shamer Isaac Yankem … the same guy who eventually settled on the persona of Kane. Take a look:
Feb. 25, 2009: Vince McMahon singing “Stand Back”
If you thought his work at the announce table was cringe-worthy, just wait until you see VKM singing at the Slammy Awards.
Feb. 18, 2009: RoboCop
hard enough to find people who thought the RoboCop movie was a good
idea, let alone find a single living being who believed the tin-can
cop’s appearance in WCW during the early 1990s was worth watching. (And
people wonder why WCW went out of business.)
At the Capitol
Combat pay-per-view, RoboCop — moving at the speed of an injured snail
— came to his buddy Sting’s aide, rescuing him from a “steel” cage.
See for yourself:
Feb. 11, 2009: The Shockmaster
Luckily, we found a video
that explains the whole situation… saves us from having to type about
a fake sport. Give it a watch; it’s sad and funny all at once.
Be sure to check back next Wednesday for the latest induction. Also, feel free to leave some nominations below.
