It isn't Halloween just yet but I think if I were to review this figure on October the 31st I might bring about some kind of spectral apocalypse upon the world due to its sheer terribleness. The world and his brother will admit the class that was the Macho Man, even during his late WCW … Continue reading Woeful Wrestling Figures:The Macho Man Can-Can Dance.
Bum-bum, bum-bum, bum-bum, bum-bum, beep, beep, beep, beep, beeeeeeeeep. IT'S TAZ! Yes indeed ladies and gentlemen this time your humble purveyor of plastic grappling takes a turn for the extreme this week with a look at a very early figure of the "human suplex machine", plucked straight from the original ECW toy line. Now let … Continue reading Woeful(?) Wrestling Figures : Choking You Out Hazard.
On balance I may have been a little harsh on some of these TNA figures but in my defence, the lows were far lower than the highs were high. Scott Steiner couldn't stand under his own power thanks to some shoddy leg joints (of which I can sympathise, or should that be "Sympy-thise"), Brother Devon … Continue reading Total Nonstop Action Figures 4: Paint it black.
So it looks as though I'have in fact exhausted Poundland's supply of cheap wrestling toys for the foreseeable future but I still have a need to give you the lowdown on some polymer pugilists. Instead of some lousy fakes I've taken a step towards respectability in an odyssey to official merchandise and a sextet of … Continue reading Woeful Wrestling Figures:Royal Grumble.
I'm worried that I've exhausted Poundland's supply of cheap wrestling toys. All I could dredge up from my latest dumpster dive was perhaps the final two X-treme Wrestlers in the line and perhaps my toughest challenge yet. Trying to talk up these generic jobbers seems like too herculean a task but in what could very … Continue reading WWF : Woeful Wrestling Figures: FanPlasticamania.
My toy story continues! Those nice folks at Poundland have gotten their mitts on another clutch of plastic wrestling figures of questionable origin. In the next part I'll have something different in a troupe of miniature figures complete with enough weapons and accessories to make New Jack jealous but before that the heavyweights are back … Continue reading WWF: Woeful Wrestling Figures 3: The Chode Warriors
by Billy Carpenter (@4CR_Billy) Chicago is in for what could be a hell of show tonight! Most of--if not all--of the matches on Payback have been built solidly, at the very least. Intrigue surrounds the main event, we've got a lot of new faces on the scene post-WrestleMania and a bit of a fresh … Continue reading WWE Payback 2016 Recap
by Billy Carpenter https://www.facebook.com/WWENXT/videos/998730846843146/ Enzo Amore & Big Cass make their way out in what is, I believe, their NXT swan song as the second set of tapings from WWE Axxess gets under way. They challenged American Alpha last week to a non-title affair and Cass proclaims that on this night, they'll find … Continue reading WWE NXT Recap (4/20/2016)
By Martin Dixon ( @BunnySuicida ) And so a bold new era begins. I leave the cut and thrust of the Monday Night War and delve deeper into the dark recesses of the WWE network for something really old school and find myself beginning a new education in the AWA, the American Wrestling Association. I … Continue reading TWx3: The Ballad of Bun Boy Barton.
by Billy Carpenter William Regal is in the cold open this week, running down the card for this week. Let's face it; we're all just here for Shinsuke Nakamura this week, right? Side note: how long has Regal been general manager of NXT? It's been quite a while, he's surely in the running for … Continue reading WWE NXT Recap (4/13/2016)
