Will The Circle Be Unbroken...

I can't believe they're still dragging their feet on Bam Bam's toxicology report. The public has a right to know. That said, here's footage of Bam Bam's CWA debut in all its dated, ridiculous glory. Please ignore any similarities to the Abu Gharib torture tapes; this was filmed in simpler times. My favorite moment is when Larry Sharp sez, "Look at those flames," and Bam Bam's grimace slips for a moment. He appears almost beatific, and gamely tilts his head toward the camera while stifling a chuckle.

Goddamn I miss that guy.

Nice find Apollo! That clip has got all kinds of old skool wonderful...Lance Russell on the stick, some ridiculous JAWS music playing during Larry Sharpe's promo, Larry Sharpe's bowl mullet cut, and of course a very green Beast from the East.

But you gotta love the last three or four seconds featuring some one-piece trunk wearing masked tag team delivering a patented Memphis fire ball, followed by a one second clip of Hilbilly Elmer (Uncle Elmer in the WWF) kicking ass and taking names!
