Wrestling Superstars

Published by Toronto Mike on September 26, 2010 @ 12:33 in Memories

RewindYouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems. These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

I collected these WWF Wrestling Superstars. I was always surprised Special Delivery Jones made the cut. SD Jones was just a guy, as I recall, but he had his own damn doll.

My favourite was the Rowdy Roddy Piper one. Hod Rod!

I have a whole bunch of those things in my parent's basement someplace. I loved them when I was a kid.

Ah yes, the wrestlers. These damn things were the cause of one of my worst Christmas memories...

My brother asked for wrestlers and the ring for Christmas the year these came out. He found my mom's present stash, and had figured out her present coding system (she never put tags on til the last minute, instead preferring to wrap them and then mark them with our initials) Brother thought he found all the presents with his initials and peeked inside the paper, then wrapped them back up -- except for the damn ring. He TORE that paper more, and she discovered it.

Unfortunately he got into one of -my- presents as well.

For Christmas that year? He excitedly opened the box that previously contained the "sling-em-fling-em ring", to find a box with a picture of the ring from the Consumer's Distributing catalogue taped to the bottom of it. And I opened my cherished Whitney Houston cassette tape to find the empty paper holder from Woolco.

And I can't believe I just admitted that statement LOL

Kirsten that was Gold!! Did you give your brother the sleeper hold once you found out he was the instigator?
