Thanks To…

Sammmy Smooth for the fabulous intro

Lewis Howse for the British Crossbody

Trucker Shield for the shield trucker

yoremouth deacon for KENTA vs tables

Notes…

Alex from Street Fighter III is loosely based on Hogan, hence why he pops up in the intro. I’m running out of ideas.


I thought Survivor Series was pretty awful. Every negative off WWE was there on display from old-timers getting pushed over young uns, lazy MITB cash-ins, no forward-planning and Reigns pushed as this nice guy as the crowd mercilessly booed him. Ambrose vs. Owens was great though.


The Khali/Hornswoggle ending and music is from Attack on Titan, a show about killer giants. Or something. I don’t know, never watched it but I love the theme song.

      I’m not your buddy, guy!

    I was almost expecting the “Oh shit I’m sorry” on Pushing Onwards

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      I was so tempted to use that version but realised explaining it to people would have been more trouble than it’s worth.

  • J. Waltz

    “Where’s your Rumble win” LOL

  • Jr.

    We need more of these Pokemon endings

    • tony

      DIS-agree; can we please put a moratorium on Pokemon endings that go on forever and aren’t funny?

      • van hammerstein ballroom

        Agreed. %100.

      • vern

        The first Pokemon ending was funny because of the “CENA CAN’T LEARN MORE THAN FOUR MOVES” thing, but after that they’ve been a chore.

  • Kyle

    Jesus! I’m not sure who the guy wrestling Okada is, but I hope he got chewed out for that disgusting powerbomb. He didn’t even try to lift him, and it’s less than 2 months to Wrestle Kingdom, which Okada is main-eventing.What the hell was he thinking?

    • Groan

      He is Genichiro Tenryu, one of the biggest legends in professional wrestling history. He is also 65 years old.

      • Kyle

        Fair enough, but why is he wrestling the biggest star in Japanese wrestling at 65, and why did he think he could powerbomb Okada?

        • BeowolfD

          Last match of his career! He chose Okada as his last opponent!

    • Catherine Bouey

      At the very least he didn’t pull a Dory Funk :S

    Love the South Park references, more please; hey there, Monarch! Who’s the guy at 8:00? Where’s the “no crying in wrestling” clip in the first ending from? What’s the cartoon in the second ending?

  • Catherine Bouey

    Not for nothing but could the apathetic crowd following the Reigns screw job be because they just watched Reigns get screwed out of the title in predictable fashion not because they hate Reigns?

    And really how are going to show sympathy for a babyface getting screwed out of the title by a heel outside of booing about the outcome?

    • Brownie_the_3rd

      The only reason the crowd don’t hate Reigns is that they are too apathetic to him to elicit such a strong emotional response. They still don’t like him but it’s more the idea of what he represents that they dislike.

  • 2D2Will

    If you’re running out of ideas for Hulk Hogan replacements, you should use some Bulk Boulder footage. Hogan sued Post over the ad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmFORkFhYAE

    • Gruntt

      Little did he know WWE would make a movie with The Flintstones anyways.

  • Antonio Genovese

    You could use Paul Hogan for the intro, or the Hogan shoes, or Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan in Iron Man’s movies)

  • Twisted

    That VVVVVV music is so good. Instantly made me want to play it again

  • Mad Sheltie

    Fuck yeah, lady Puro wrestlers!

    Props for 寸劇の巨人 shout out!

      “Uh, there’s no stopping WWE from marrying two people that are already married. Like Randy and Elizabeth.”

      That’s not what Bruce Chung meant you bleeping retard! The WWE/Vince wanted the Renee/Dean wedding to also be a storyline/angle (with the wedding most likely broadcasted on that Total Divas garbage), but Dean and Renee stood up to that idea similar to the time Ken Shamrock stood up to that brother/sister love angle and just like how Ken Shamrock was “rewarded” with a three month losing streak, Dean and Renee’s “reward” for not having their wedding being part of an angle is Dean moving to Raw, but Renee stays on Smackdown.

      That’s what Bruce Chung meant! But hey, that’s just another reason most of those posters don’t take anything seriously from a pile of bleep like you!

      And if you have a problem with that, you can respond to me at my Youtube board below!

      But I bet you don’t have the bleeps to do it you chickenbleep!

  • Dickbutt

    How come the name on the Vimeo video is “Attack on Titan Towers” but on the others it’s “The Slack-Jawed Yokel!”?

  • MisterForth

    The Survivor Series stuff was the best part, though the second ending and the final ending were awesome.

  • Gruntt

    Tenryu damn near ended Okada’s career.

  • Andy Badwool

    – “Undertaker wants blood!”
    – “Brock Lesnar used bladejob!”

    • Richard Manning

      Brock Lesnar doesn’t blade.

      The blade Brocks.

  • Snake

    Brilliant as always! Thank you

  • Zanon23

    That moment when someone is able to shove Attack on Titan’s theme, making Hornswoggle and The Great Khali something more epic than it ever could be… that’s when you know wrestling is awesome.

  • Dat Alex tho

  • Shoryumik

    At 3:50 from wich Joshi promotion is this match from?(And the event if you can)

    • samurai crow

      • Shoryumik

        It’s never too late ahah,Someone replied to me on Twitter last year but i totally forgot the name anyways ;p

  • Placid_Snake

    Holy shit, it’s beena while since I’ve watched WWE shows… they’re doing blade jobs again?
