Welcome to another edition of "Slapstick Saturday," Cagesiders, where your old pal Hulk Holland pokes fun at every botch, blooper and bomb the world of professional wrestling has ever given us.
So, who was the brains behind this WCW promo?
Well, it certainly wasn't Sid Vicious. Sure, the big galoot was twice the wrestler Kevin Nash was, but he only had half the brain. Hey, that's not me talking, that's Siddy himself in this surprising confession on Monday Nitro:
"It all stops tonight. See Nash, you can wear any Halloween costume you want to, but you know and I know that you're only half the man that I am. And I have half the brain that you do! But week after week you've tried to make me look like a jackass, but it stops tonight. And for you Hall, the road to WCW, the heavyweight championship of the world, well, it ends tonight. Look at you, Nash. Even though I'm already scheduled to wrestle here tonight, if I can get your chickenshit ass outta retirement, it'll be you and me, one on one if ya' got the balls -- which I doubt -- and I will show you who the master is."
I believe he was looking for, "twice the brains you do." Poor Scott Hall can hardly contain himself.
Sid does a nice job of covering it up with some profanity later on, but alas, the power of YouTube has betrayed him. However, in fairness, I included his side of the story, because who wants to miss out on another opportunity to hear the talent bag on Vince Russo?
And it sure beats the last video of Sid we posted. Ouch.
