WTF Wednesday #12: Hellfire Deathmatch

hellfire

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I am your host, the Baumeister.  As a dedicated wrestling fan, you’ve watched through both the good and the bad.  But, there are just some things that are so bad that you have to go “WTF?” Each week, we’ll cover a match, person or storyline that will confuse you and give you a headache as you ask yourself, “WTF did I just watch?”

This week’s WTF: Hellfire Deathmatch

I’ve been fearing featuring this “match” for quite sometime now.  This is probably one of the scariest match concepts that have ever been conceived (and that’s saying something considering all of the matches that come out of IWA Mid-South).  Not just scary, but one of the most dangerous matches.  I’m very thankful that the clip below is only 2 and a half minutes.  You’ll see why.

This week’s WTF: Katie Vick Storyline

Probably one of the worst storylines that came out of WWE…ever.  This was about the time that I was not watching wrestling, or even following it.  So, I was fortunate enough to miss the entire storyline live. I’m not going to even try to explain the whole storyline, but I will give you what is touted as the most infamous moment from this storyline below.  There are no words.

This week’s WTF: Jenna Morasca vs Sharmell

Oh boy.  Now, up until now, I haven’t really seen this match.  I’ve just heard about this match.  About how bad this match was.  When a match gets MINUS FOUR STARS, I usually try to stay as far away as I can.  But, since I started these WTF Wednesday features, it’s been…enlightening.  Enlightening just how bad things can get in between the ropes.  Below, is one of those MINUS FOUR STAR matches.

This week’s WTF: Heroes of Wrestling PPV

Well, ladies and gentlemen, here it is.  The event that I’ve probably dreaded covering the most.  On October 10, 1999, there was a PPV in Bay St. Louis, MS.  It was ran by an independent promotor, who was willing to take a bunch of legends from the 80s and early 90s, and put on a show. Alas, any expectations for this to be a good show quickly came crashing down.  This…is a god awful show.  I give to you below, the event, in it’s entirety.  So, enjoy.

I’m gonna need to find something good to watch…stat!

This week’s WTF: TNA Reverse Battle Royal

Well, we all know that TNA never had the most…well thought out concepts.  Such as this one.  The picture above states the rules, but I’m going to try to simplify it out for you.  The match starts with everyone outside of the ring, with the objective being to get inside the ring. Not so bad, but you have to go over the top rope to do so.  Doesn’t make a lot of sense to me there, but whatever.  Then, after you make it over the top rope to make it to the next stage, then you have to avoid going back over the top rope to the floor.  Once six of the eight men get eliminated, then it finishes out in a pinfall or submission victory.  Did I make that any more clearer? Because I’m certainly still confused and I just wrote it all out.  Ugh.  Anyway, below is the 2007 Fight For The Right Reverse Battle Royal, which is actually a qualifier for a eight man tournament that would happen on Impact.  Aiyiyiyi.
