  1. Oh, didn’t recognize Typhoon at the beginning without Ole Anderson doing the voice for him!

  2. left handed cigarette says:

    One of the best fun facts about the Road Warriors was that they,Rick Rude and Barry Darsow, who I think was Smash in Demolition, were all bouncers at the bar Grandma Bs at the same time.I would love to hear a story from someone removed from that bar by that group but I’m sure there were no survivors.

  3. Paul E Cautiously says:

    1st, thanks for another great episode. Here are my top 3 patriotic moments:
    (1) The video montages during America the Beautiful that lead off each Wrestlemania.
    (2) Hulk Hogan’s Real American theme song.
    (3) Roddy Piper’s pro-American commentary during the Gulf War. Notable because he was a Canadian portraying a Scot.

    Least patriotic:
    (1) American Badass Undertaker

  4. Joe from Big Bean says:

    patriotic themes
    1. Hulk Hogan monster truck. What is more American than fiber glass 24 inch pythons on a ten foot tall monster truck with American made 572 cube inch motor in it.

    2. Any gimmick with a military theme i.e. War games, Boot camp or Desert Storm Match.

    3. Sting’s face paint

    Lesser patriotic themes Col. DeBeers

  5. Midmorning Express says:

    Least Patriotic:

    The Fabulous Rougeaus theme song of “All American Boys”
