The 13 Greatest WTF Moments in Professional Wrestling History
It's been 12 years since a fire took the home of North Texas professional wrestling, the famed Dallas Sportatorium, thus extinguishing the notion of North Texas as a hotbed for dudes in underwear fake-punching each other.
Who cares what The Rock is cooking? Hogan made pasta!
Before Sportatorium's demise, professional wrestling was already limping along, thanks to the Dallas-based World Class Championship Wrestling's folding more than a decade earlier. Since then, "wrasslin'" has again found its legs. The once-named WWF went national; made a ton of money; changed its title to WWE; gave us a top-grossing action movie star; and generally pissed off right-wing television pundits with its over-the-top story lines.
Saturday, WWE Live takes over the AAC so we've gone down the rabbit hole and put together a list of the most WTF moments in wrestling history. Get ready folks, it's about to get real Dadaist up in this blog.
This is the weirdest episode of Supermarket Sweep I have ever seen. Stone Cold spends part of the video just chugging beers and chucking eggs. Little-known fact: He learned this during his time at North Texas in Denton; it's an elective class for American history students.
I have no idea what's going on here, but the tubby dude who just fell through the wall is called The Shockmaster, and his mask is a Ke$ha-fied stormtrooper helmet. I'm 99 percent sure this is one of Will Ferrell's Funny or Die pranks.
The big blond dude in the singlet is the least believable Muppet of all time. Either this is something that actually happened, or I've lost my mind and am now sitting in an institution, drooling and muttering terrible Fozzie jokes to the wall while wrestling plays on the activity room television.
