    Default What Was This Wrestling Tape?

    A long time ago, I had a friend who got a wrestling VHS tape for his birthday. We watched it a couple of times, and it was unlike anything I had ever seen. It was a showcase of some of the most unusual aspects of the genre. There was a segment covering odd gimmick matches, such as a concession stand match, a trash can match, and even a Texas bullwhip match where the ropes were removed from the ring and each wrestler had a whip! I remember some of the segments being set to music. There was also a segment on the Moondogs, who freaked me out at the time. There also seemed to be some hosts for the video who would introduce each segment.

    Can anybody find this? I wish I knew the name, hopefully someone reading this could identify it.

    Here is a direct quote from one of my sources:
    " No, not Muscle Rock madness. It was called "Rock and Roll Wrestling," or something like that, and was hosted by Johnny Legend. I received the same tape for my 14th birthday in 1989."
    I hope it helps

    I think that's totally it. I found a copy online, but I'll have to wait to get it until I have a working VCR in the house. Thanks for the help, androidvirus!
