So bad that Triple H actually apologized for it recently.
See it before Vince's lawyers have it taken down!
This was the point in which I started thinking "you know, I don't absllutely HAVE to watch this anymore, even though I've been doing so pretty regularly for years and years."
Set a new bar for mind-bogglingly inept wrestling angles at the time.
Maybe this makes me a mark, but I actually thought that was pretty fucking cool.
My favorite part? It just keeps going on and on and on, long after any further explanation is necessary or wanted. Is it too soon to make Chris Benoit jokes, or should I just say this is amazing and leave it at that?
SPEAKING OF... STIFF.
A terrible B horror movie ineptly framed in a trashy fake sport. Bad enough for 5 stars.

If someone can find it from the 80s, a mad scientist once hooked George "The Animal" Steele up to a Brain-o-Tron, an electric helmet attached to a machine, to cure his retardation. It was working at first, Steele said "How now brown cow?" but then Rowdy Roddy Piper burst into the room all "HAY GUYS WHATS THIS" and started pulling random levers, and sparks shot out of Steeles' head and he went even crazier and smashed through a wall and escaped.
This was back when you expected cartoony entertainment. It was glorious. That's how it should be.
Also, Rowdy Roddy Piper on Halloween.. he wrapped bricks in cellophane and spiked them into trick-or-treaters' bags so he could steal the candy that spilled out the bottom. "OH DON'T CRY HERE LET ME SWEEP THAT UP FOR YOU"
And that's why Piper is one of the all time greatest.
Sorry, Syd, but you just imagined Piper's interference.
It was on an episode of Tuesday Night Titans and his manager at the time, Lou Albano, had a "psychotherapist" (the same hammy actor they employed to work all of these types of skits) hook George up to an electro-shock machine.
Initially, it worked ("How now...). But, alas, the shrink got greedy and turned it up to full power, causing George to flip out.
Lou got mad and called the shrink a quack. George flailed around, yelling incomprehensibly. Vince said "We'll be right back with more TNT!" The noble therapeutic practitioners of the world reveled in the exposure. Great times had by all.
Well dang, it has been a long time. But you're right.. how could I have imagined Steele without Captain Lou around.
I am completely accurate about the Halloween one though. I remember Piper's manic grin as he swept up all the kids candy into a dustpan. "I'LL JUST GET RID OF THIS HERE"

Wrestling is fucking retarded
Are there wrestling fans out there who believe this is real footage? Please say no.
The joke was that it was OBVIOUSLY HHH dressed up as Kane. GET IT? HHH IS AN ASSHOLE! GET IT?
this is a prelude to the necrophilic-themed pay-per-view "BACK FROM THE DREAD" grudge match, between the Undertaker and Kane: the latter having refused to pay-up after a night in the Undertaker's weight-room / "Sexcropolis" - featuring, for the first time, WWF's female bikini wrestlers and a resurrected Doink and Dink the clown!!
Was that a real doll in the coffin, or was that a girl in a wig laying very still?
It was a mannequin. The guy who runs Wrestlecrap.com actually bought the entire cheerleader outfit from the WWE for some absurd amount of money - $500ish, IIRC.
holy shit. If I was a little kid and I saw this I'd be ruined.
"I did.... I did....... I screwed your brains out!"
That last bit was pretty amazing.

He rapes a dead girl on TV.
you dont see that every day
Yes! Just as awful as I imagined!
Just to be clear, the video wont play. I actually remember watching this and laughing my ass off. When Triple H got injured I stopped watching wrestling, because it became shit.
Oh damn, second time through it played. "I used to watch you bounce up and down" better than I remembered. Triple H once brought a recliner on to the ramp during Monday night RAW and just made fum of people, damn I'm that took me 5 minutes to type out and spellcheck dammit. Dammit.
