I forgot to post this one yesterday as a THIS DAY IN WRESTLING HISTORY, but who cares! It’s an open-invitational for the WWF Hardcore Championship, it’s just as good one day later.
Also, it’s good to hear Steve Blackman’s theme again. I forgot how much it rocked.
WWF SummerSlam ‘99 Road Rage Two Pack - Hardcore Holly and Al Snow 1999
This particular set sparked outrage back in 1999 after the Atlanta Journal-Constitution posted an editorial that asked, “[c]an playing with a woman’s severed head serve as anything but a training manual for future spousal abusers?”
The editorial argued that Al Snow’s television antics “celebrated the disembodiment and objectification of women”, and that children would see the packed-in mannequin head as “a female victim who did not survive her encounter with the muscled figures who surrounded her”.
Due to the ridiculous controversy, Wal-Mart ended up pulling the figure entirely from the store shelves. The WWF responded by sending out a press release three days later that defended the Al Snow character and called the whole thing a misunderstand as he was nothing more than a “zany, comic, fan-favorite who talks to a mannequin prop head as a part of his act.”
The WWF ended up injecting this outrage into their storyline where Al Snow became depressed due to the major retailer refusing to sell his action figure.
Why I was prompted to post this, I don’t know, but enjoy (if you remember, n00b).
