The Dynamic Dudes: Dudes? Yes! Dynamic?...

Here at Arabian Facebuster, we are all about dichotomy. For that reason, we are committed to bringing you not only pro wrestling's very best but also its absolute worst.

This clip (sorry, embedding was disabled by the uploader) featuring The Dyanmic Dudes -- the NWA's fantastically futile attempt to find something for plucky pretty boy upstarts Shane Douglas and Johnny Ace something to do that incorporated shopping for neon colored shorts and aqua socks, throwing out hand gestures that would resonate with the surfing and skateboarding crowd, shoving slices of Sabarro in their chipper pie holes, schlong cuts flapping in the wind, and losing on a regular basis to credible heel tag teams as the result of nefarious circumstances during the Summer and Fall of 1989 -- clearly falls into the latter category.

Other than Rocky Mountain Thunder botching spots and almost crippling his opponents, Buck "Rock and/or Roll" Zumhofe refereeing a match featuring his daughter taking on a midget in a cornfield, the entire Soldat Ustinov/Teijo Khan-Baron Von Raschke feud, anything involving the Dungeon of Doom, and the verdict and sentencing phases of Nick Hogan's trial, there's nothing so dreadful in wrestling that puts a bigger smile on my face than watching these future wrestling malcontents and master politickers get humiliated so thoroughly.

And after a careful viewing of this clip, I suspect you will too.

Ahh, so this is the notorious Johnny Ace. One wonders if Vince Russo may ever been forced to work a similar gimmick such as this, and thus explaining why both men have spent the rest of their lives working to destroy wrasslin' as we know it?

This kind of reminds me of Bart Sawyer's "Bartman" run in Portland wrestling. This clip:

features him in action against The Grappler at the Portland Sports Arena, complete with "Do the Bartman" entrance.

Sadly, no YouTube postings of the less popular Lenny and Carl tag team are available at this time.

How these beach babes escaped my niche wrestling portraiture hobby until now is a mystery. an absolute mystery. I promise to capture the radical ones in all their neon glory before 2010 is over and out.

Shane Douglas looks utterly toolish in every single photo in that montage of neon.
