Here’s a list of every match I could find on the WWE Network involving The Hart Foundation stable, wrestling against each other in some form or another. Warning: it’s very Hart Foundation vs. British Bulldogs heavy. But is that really such a bad thing? Also, things switch up a bit after 1992.
Title: Steven Universe
Bio: Dashing Danny Doober and Handsome Hank Hackleschmidt stomped their way through the tag team tournament and into the fans’ hearts.
Signature Move: Helping Tiger Millionaire and Purple Puma actually win the tag team titles from them in the name of wrestling.
Title: Mama’s Family
Bio: The Masked Mabels were once the most dominant tag team in the women’s wrestling division. Despite their size and years of wrestling experience, they were easily defeated by a wrestling grannie on the biggest show in the history of Raytown.
Signature Move: Jobbing to an older lady who has never wrestled.
There’s nothing wrong with being athletic. In a pseudo-sport like pro wrestling, it’s kind of expected of wrestlers to be athletic. And if you happen to wrestle for Vince McMahon, it’s especially helpful to look the part. Some wrestlers happen to be naturally gifted when it comes to their physical attributes that it becomes part of their character. This is particularly the case with several black wrestlers. There was a funny video that came out about the three characters black wrestlers are allowed to play on TV. One particular gimmick that falls into the “happy black wrestler” category is the amazingly talented, naturally athletic black wrestler.
In the late 80’s/early 90’s, Hulk Hogan wasn’t the only household wrestling name when it came to outside film and TV projects. In fact, Roddy Piper and Jesse Ventura were in A LOT better movies than Hogan was. I’ll always choose Jesse Ventura in The Running Man over any Hogan vehicle, except for maybe No Holds Barred. That movie is an undeniable classic to seven-year-old me. And Roddy Piper is basically pro wrestling’s Samuel L. Jackson, he’ll take any role so long as the check clears. As of this writing he has five projects in post-production.Yet, Ventura and Piper’s combined star power wasn’t enough to get their one-hour pilot, Tag Team, picked up for a full season. Which is a shame when you consider Thunder in Paradise ran for 22 episodes.
Granted, I’m a little late on this press release that Setta Entertainment put out… to WrestleZone. But still, it’s worth mentioning since a large part of this site is dedicated to actual TV episodes that feature pro wrestling in one way or another.
New York, NY – WRESTLING WITH JOEYLICIOUS is a single-camera half hour comedy, filmed in and around NYC. It will follow Joey’s trials and tribulations as he attempts to lead a normal life balancing work, family and a romance while desperately clinging to his dream of becoming the greatest professional wrestler of all time.
In honor of Black History Month, I decided to compile a list of the top black tag teams in professional wrestling history. It was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be.
