That was (not) awesome! (clap clap clapclapclap): Two words - Gobbledy Gooker ... or is that one?

Those guys in the picture sure seemed to love it...

The big reveal.

When it's done well, it can be a great moment. In the case of a certain "Suburban Commando," it turned the wrestling industry on its head. 

But the Gobbledy Gooker ain't no Hulk. Hell, he isn't even a Horace.

A giant egg followed the WWE during every one of its shows leading up to Survivor Series 1990 with Matt Lesko-esque question marks all over the riser, teasing something big for the November show.

It ended up being a turkey egg or rather, a big fat goose egg.

Puns! Oh, man, I slay me. Anyway, take a look at this (not so) awesome moment in honor of Thanksgiving.

Have a great day, all you Cagesiders, enjoy the feasts. To Keith Harris and all my friends abroad, I guess have a good Thursday ... ?

It doesn't take long before the crowd turns on the poor guy. One guy -- a full-grown adult with a Hulkamania foam hand (a time travelling Jesse Holland, perhaps? -- loves it, though.

I love the reaction from the Roddy Piper. "They're really warming up to the Goobledy Gooker!" right before he's greeted by a shower of boos. The whole thing is so terrible that I can't stop myself from laughing. Actually, you know what? This IS pretty awesome.

Also, is that Rick Rude's brother at the 3:15 mark?!
