Hell of a way to start. Everyone involved getting so into this is what makes it entertaining. Finlay, in particular, is having the time of his life in that crowd shot.

Best wrestling-related thing I've seen in ages. Col. Brody's stache. Finlay grinning uncontrollably. A moping PN News dejectedly singing about living in hotels while wearing a giant Miami Vice suit. Kautoff's goofy arm-wagging dance. Nogami's enthusiasm. The guy in the back row of the locker room shot waving his cape in the air. The five star thumbs up from the car. But the best guy in this is Owen, who always understood that intense sincerity to something stupid is usually way funnier than ironic detachment. Dude sells the hell out of this like it's the most important stuff he's ever said.

The combination of MC Hammer to this music video was so disorienting I didn't know wha was happening and I didn't recognize anyone but Vader.

 

Anyway, a couple lyrical tweaks And a charitable cause and this could have been the wrestling version of "We Are the World."

Late to the party and holy hell, that was awesomely bizarre. I was 6 at the start of 1990, so the WWF/WCW stuff will bring back some memories, but after this, I'm ready for anything. So cheesy in a good way. I'm interested to see some CWA shows now too.

I'm sure a lot of what I post will already have been said but I spotted Col. Brody, Dave Taylor, Giant Haystacks, Fit Finlay, Tony St. Clair, Otto Wanz, Owen Hart, Cannonball Grizzly and Rambo (Luc Poirier). This is surprisingly catchy and a lot of the wrestlers are clearly enjoying themselves (especially Taylor). Amazingly it would appear there is a suit large enough for Haystacks!

Loved this bit of cheese. The fat guys dancing around while walking down the street and clearly getting into it is just so....bizarre and train-wrecky....it absolutely works! Great intro to the set.

What a way to start the yearbook. Awful stuff, I loved every second of it.

 

I noticed Owen Hart, Giant Haystacks and Vader in this and I had a hard time telling what promotion this was from.

Decided to rewatch 1990 today, and good lord is the most 1990 wrestling thing imaginable. Fat guys dancing and singing to a so bad that it's good pop song.

The best part is how into it Akira Nogami is. He looks like he's having the time of his life.

 

I posted the video on Facebook, and it got around. Low & behold, I see the video was shared by & I get a friend request from Akira Nogami. He said that everyone had a great time filming this.
