This week on Wrestle Buddies, GameSpot’s professional wrestling podcast, Chris E. Hayner and Mat Elfring are looking back on some of the most entertaining moments in WWE history–and they’re not doing it alone. In addition to welcoming former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia to chat,, we revisit what might be the most bizarre year of WWE programming ever and dig deep into the company’s former on-screen president.
First up, Mat decided to watch all of WWE’s programming from 1995. Why is he doing this? Not even he knows the answer, to be honest. However, what a journey it’s been so far. You might not remember this–or perhaps didn’t even watch wrestling then–but this was not a great time for WWE. From characters like Man Mountain Rock to the company’s obsession with Pamela Anderson, it really was a sight to behold.
Then, given it’s election week, we look back at one of the most important presidents of any of our lives. We are, of course, talking about WWF President Jack Tunney. That’s right, Before WWE had general managers, commissioners, or even a sheriff named “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Jack Tunney was an on-screen authority figure named president of the company and some of his decisions were downright ludicrous.
