This is what is categorized as “WrestleCrap”. Playboy Buddy Rose was professional wrestler in the 1970s – 90s. He achieved moderate success in the WWF and AWA in the 80s and returned to the WWF in 1990. However, when he returned to the World Wrestling Federation in the 90s, he was struggling with weight issues, something that would trouble him throughout his life and leading to his death in 2009. The WWF knew they had a good talent but didn’t know how to address his appearance. In a poor attempt at comic relief, they came up with the Buddy Rose Blow Away Diet. This was a goof on “As Seen on TV” infomercials. What resulted is something cheesy, funny, crappy and somewhat-entertaining. Enjoy.
The recent passing of The Ultimate Warrior has made me sad for many different reasons. Not only am I sad because we lost the Warrior so soon after he made peace with the WWE. But I’m also sad that we never got to see the greatest main event in WrestleMania history. The Ultimate Warrior vs….Phil Collins. Yes that’s right, for so some strange reason in 1990 while promoting a new album/VHS tape, Phil Collins thought it would be good marketing to cross promote with the World Wrestling Federation Champion The Ultimate Warrior. The end result is what many call “WrestleCrap”.
