If there’s one thing I’ve learned thanks to Maffew’s Botchamania, is that wrestling nerds love them some Simpsons references. Especially, when you can tie them into a joke about wrestling. So here’s a Simpsons episode full of wrestling references and jokes about wrestling.
Title: The Ren & Stimpy Show
Bio: Two tiny, masked, anthropomorphic grapplers who were known for overcoming the odds and defeating opponents three times their size, despite barely getting any offense in.
Signature Move: The Blister Popper.
Previously, I covered the best All-American wrestling attire that’s ever been worn inside the squared circle. And it still stands as the definitive guide in patriotic wrestling gear. Now, in celebration of American’s independence, I’d like to bring to your attention the most All-American fictional wrestlers to come across pop culture.
Title: Porky the Wrestler
Bio: A giant ogre of a man who ruled the wrestling circuits of the 1930’s. Suffered the biggest and most embarrassing loss of his career on a fluke to newcomer Porky Pig.
Signature Move: The airplane spin.
Bio: When not endangering the safety of his opponents by wrestling drunk, The Hangman likes to live up to his moniker by choking out his opponents with a magical noose that drops from the ceiling.
Signature Move: Hanging wrestlers.
The last installment of the fictional WrestleMania cards. I was only able to come up with nine matches and that’s probably a good thing, or else the terrier from Russell Madness versus Zeus would’ve been a match booked on this card.
With WonderCon having just taken place in Los Angeles last weekend; and, more importantly, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice coming out last week; and, even more importantly, my ongoing 10 Count! series in which I’m booking fantasy WrestleMania cards based on different pop culture mediums, I bring you the ultimate comic book fictional wrestling card. Which is way better than anything Marvel’s Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation has ever put on.
