Yr Old Skool Friday Flashback Interview 'O the Wk.

An absolutely amazing clip!

Notice how the couch sells much more believably than either the Warrior or the Hulkster.

I wish McMahon had seen its intrinsic potential and offered it a contract. Just think of the marketing and licensing potential...

WM VII would have been a much better show with Arsenio Hall's Couch on the card.

Don't believe me? Judge for yourself...

the rev.

Watching Arsenio Hall point gives me finger envy.

Woof, woof, woof!

I believe Arsenio's Couch did have a brief run in the WCW during the mid 90's, most notably feuding with Sgt. Craig Pitman.

Speaking of Arsenio, check out Tribe Called Quest with Leaders of the New School performing Scenario on his show. It's the most fun you'll have all day:

Upon re-watching this clip, I have concluded that it is the single greatest sports entertainment clip ever culled by Team Facebuster! Every element in this clip -- from Arsenio's flat top haircut, to the couch jumping antics of the Warrior, to him cutting a fairly clairvoyant yet aggressive (by his lofty standards for derangement and assertiveness, anyways) promo to hype Wrestle Mania, to the Warrior running through the troglodytes in da dog pound -- brings a smile to my face.

Well done, Rev!

Now where can I get some arm tassles to accessorize my vests?
