Hey everyone. I’ve been recently messing around with the video editor and decided to do something a little more creative with this week’s wrestling game video. Wednesday is typically wrestling game day on the YouTube channel but rather than just doing one match, I put together a little small compilation similar to “The Best of the WWF” video series that I watched growing up in the 80s. In fact, that was the very inspiration for the above video.
Vince McMahon and the way his company presented wrestling as a spectacle in the 1980s had a profound impact on me as a kid. I can remember asking my mom to take me to the video store so I could rent the next volume. For me, it wasn’t just about the matches or the over-the-top personalities. Even as a kid, I paid attention to how the whole package was put together from the intro music to the ending credits. It all was very fascinating to me. Watching the WWF at a young age played a significant role in my choosing to pursue and obtain a broadcasting degree.
Fire Pro Wrestling World and WWE 2K19 are the games used in the video as the lineup includes the NWO (Hollywood Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Randy Savage) vs DX (Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn), Bret Hart vs Kurt Angle, Andre the Giant vs Big Show, and Ronda Rousey vs Chyna. Enjoy and thank you so much for stopping by.
