That's Randy Macho Man Savage to you.

They forgot a beautiful promo where Booker T lost it on TV and bellowed "Hulk Hogan, we comin' after you, nubian!"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kpvzuuq9xfs

Watch his and Sherri's reactions. Stevie Ray and Mean Gene kept it together.

My favorite bit was when Mick Foley was betrayed by Vice McMahon the week before. It was the Monday after Father's day and he comes out carrying a leaf blower. He said something like this,"I was going to give this leaf blower for you Dad (Vince McMahon) but since you betrayed me I won't. So if your grass dies of necrosis don't come crying to me."

First, how in the blue hell do you miss this epic promo by Randy. This is top 5 easily.

Second, the Shockmaster "intro" is in the top THREE in terms of complete hilarity.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: traxan: Mean Gene kept it together

Mean Gene was a professional


Annnnnd, right to number three letting you know that no, he wasn't:
Mean Gene interviews Doctor D in the AWA. Watch Gene completely lose it to the point that the camera has to go right to the Doctor.

The WCW Spoiler fail is in the top 5, period. That was the point you *knew* the Monday Night Wars were, effectively, over.

The whole "Kane in Anger Management" is...just fail here.

Also missing: the DX "Nation" promo which turned them faces. The complete opposite of the infamous nWo "Horsemen" promo.

I'm too lazy to look it up, but there's a photo out of there of the Iron Sheik with a raging erection in the ring. I mean, it's disturbing, but pretty funny all the same.

Hell Doc didn't even miss a beat either, dude was fully in the zone. On the Warrior bit, I found this little gem relating to that DVD. It's either a hilarious satire or the greatest mark article ever written.Link

Favorite by far is when Jake the Snake looped a clearly sedated snake around Andre the Giant's neck, and Vince screaming into the microphone "The snake is choking Andre! The snake is choking Andre!"

At work or I'd look for it on youtube.
 
2012-10-10 05:58:03 PM
When Chris Jericho was feuding with Dean Malenko in WCW should have been on there. Also when Chris Jericho told Ken Shamrock: "This isn't the fake world of UFC, this is the real world of sports entertainment where I am the world's most dangerous man."

/ Did you watch the clip of the invisible man wrestling? It was interesting.

Stone Cold and Booker T trashing a grocery store...

ANY Hardcore Match back in the day, when it could be won anywhere, anytime...the one in a Chuck E Cheese was hilarious!

Kurt Angle with a tiny cowboy hat, playing guitar...

Stone Cold and Debra's cookies...

Brock Lesnar throwing a one legged guy down a flight of concrete stairs backstage...

Of course, Vince being attacked by Stone Cold in the hospital...

Randy Savage being interviewed at home by Mean Gene...especially the part where Randy explains how the best company in the world is when he's by himself...
"The Macho Man Randy Savage with himself, yeah...that's right!"

All awesome!

When I was growing up, Bob Luce wrestling was on in Chicago Sunday mornings on either channel 26 or 44. Baron Von Raschke had a claw hold with its "vice-like grip", as announcer Sam Menacker described it, on Dick the Bruiser during a match, when after a few minutes, DB pried the claw off his face and applied it on the Baron, who proceeded to roll around the ring, kicking his own ass. It was hilarious! It was at that point that the 12-year old me figured out that this stuff was all a work.

The funniest thing I ever saw was in the WWF back in the Golden Years. I was probably about 10-12 yrs old.
Mean Gene was doing one of his interview segments that they would show in-between matches. Greg "The Hammer" Valentine was set to fight wrestler-who-I-forget and Captain Lou Albano was managing him at the time. Keep in mind that at this time it was "still real to me" and my father would just laugh and tell me "You know it's fake, right?". Naturally, I didn't agree.
So, The Hammer talks to Mean Gene and does his typical schtick, all the while Capt. Lou is grinning and nodding in agreement about how Valentine was going to crush his opponent, fondling his beard, rubbing his belly, and laughing at the poor sod who would dare face the Hammer.

Gene finishes with Valentine and, of course, asks Lou about his thoughts on the match. If you've never seen Capt. Lou in action, run to YouTube right now and take a look. Truly one of the greats.
Anyway, Lou starts on about what Valentine is going to do, how he is going to pulverize his foe etc, etc... Now one of Lou's favorite phrases about Greg Valentine was something about how powerful his hands were. I forget the actual phrasing, but it was along the lines of how his hands could produce x amount of pressure per square inch (PSI). He launches into his speech, lauding his client's physique, his skill, how pretty he is (I always loved that because Valentine was one ugly MF) and the tremendous power in his hands. However, when he got to the hands part he completely flubbed the line. Just mangled it. He must've tripped over at least 5 or 6 words in a row. It was hilarious and I was crying laughing. Well so were Mean Gene and The Hammer. I've never seen any wrestler, and ESPECIALLY Mean Gene, lose it like that. Valentine had to turn his back to the camera he was laughing so hard, and poor Gene, he just had to hold the mic while Lou (without missing a beat mind you) finished.

That was the day I accepted that wrestling was fake and I've had a tiny hole in my heart since.

Or more likely since no one watched it, the decision to go from running a mixture of ads to all negative, all the time making her completely indistinguishable from her opponent.

Most of the people I've talked to feel the same so much that If there's an independant candidate on the ballot, they might actually split the undecided vote.
