What is the single craziest thing you saw in WWE between 1984-1992?





Mine:  The snake biting Macho on tv.  Even now I can hardly believe it happened.

I saw the clip where Heenan was with Monsoon and Neidhart and he had the belt in a bag, then did the whole "ice cream and horse manure" promo until he pulled out the belt and said Flair's name.  I don't know if that happened before or after Prime Time, but that was my moment.

That segment was from Challenge during Neidharts short run as a color commentator.  I feel like the Prime Time mention happened first.

The one I remember is from Primetime and I'm pretty sure that was first.

I'll say this too. First happened on Challenge, then on a clip on Superstars.

Oh yeah...has to be this for me as well.  Followed closely by Flair winning the Royal Rumble after entering #3 and facing so many of his past NWA contenders and partners!

Which came first, Heenan coming out with the belt on Primetime or Challenge?  I seem to remember the Primetime a lot more vividly.  Does anyone have air dates of the two shows?

According history of WWE.com Heenan coming out with NWA title on Challenge happen the show that aired  wwekend of 8/11/91.

The site doesn't have any info of Heenan coming out with the belt on primetime.

I remember Challenge taking place first...

Flair's debut in WWF was on prime Time a month later.

I wonder if this aired on All American Wrestling this same weekend of Challenge.

I'm pretty much 100% sure that Challenge beat Prime Time by three days.  And, the All American promo came after Prime Time the following weekend...at least here in NY.  The reason I remember it so vividly is that Challenge happened the only Saturday I had off the entire summer of '91 and I was watching Prime Time every week.  And I was so excited to see this, I made sure to watch Prime Time that week to see the further developments.

After watching the video again another Holy cow thing was the chair shot Vince took during the Flair/Piper angle on Superstars. Never thought I would see that happening to Vince.

Why was Gorilla Monsoon wearing a hat in that Challenge segment with Heenan and Neidhart? I have no recollection of that at all.

That was during the brief time Gorilla had taken over as Mike McGuirk's pimp.

What about Hulk Hogan losing the WWF Title to Andre The Giant on The Main Event?

Sorry. Saw it was posted before. But, yeah, Hogan jobbing on TV was pretty shocking.

Bret's book had an account of a wild night out in Texas with the boys going to Flair's penthouse and them pissing on his bed.

Lou Albano absolutely smashed and dancing with female midget pressed up against his naked torso.
George Steele seen speaking normally in the background of many shots.
A masked woman, "Mrs. Executioner", being attacked and nearly stripped naked before the boss of the company could pull her away from the perpetrators. 

Yeah, this was it.  To me, the greatest 2 hours of TV from the 80's.

That was David Shultz who bodyslammed Vachon.

Albano and Blassie were in rare form.

I always got a kick out of Vince directing this nonsense on the fly.

"Yes Alfred, this is a most unusual ceremony." Lol

Vince was best as the clueless straight man in the midst of ridiculous chaos.  It was almost vaudevillian.

You're right, it was Shultz.  Jesse was busy pawing the bride, who was lying prone in the ring!

"Lord Alfred Hayes, as you know, some of the outstanding individuals that have been invited to this wedding include, President and Nancy Reagan, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip (Lord Al, "gosh!"), Cyndi Lauper, Lee Iacocca, Jerry Fallwell, Idi Amin -- I doubt he'll be here -- Clara Peller, Mr. T.  Also to join us, perhaps, Liz Taylor, along with Linda Lovelace -- one of your favorites -- (Lord Al guffaws), Nikita Kruschev, who definitely will not be here, and also Prince, Tip O'Neill, also perhaps to join us, H. R. Haldeman, and maybe even Eddie Murphy!

That sentence alone is like a perfectly preserved time capsule from 1984.

I always loved the Mrs. Executioner gimmick they had as one of the guests.

I wonder who she was? I assume one of the office secretaries or someone like that. She did have a really nice body on her. She played her part quite enthusiastically too, props for that. Maybe it was Linda McMahon and that is why Vince made the effort to pull her out of the mauling she was getting on the floor by Jesse and some of the other wrestlers.


The scene reminded me of those female joggers that got groped and assaulted in Central Park during the 2000 Puerto Rican Day Parade in Manhattan.


True story....I was actually in Central Park that day when those joggers were assaulted by the roving gang of cretins. Never saw anything to do with it though.
