Friday Night Videos (Mulkeymania Edition)

A few weeks back I promised you the return of Friday Night Videos, Arabian Facebuster's attempt to shine the spotlight on the assorted in-ring finery that professional rasslin' has to offer. And unlike Buck Rock and/or Roll Zumhofe's vow to bring his shiny new title belt, undersized ring, apish daughter, and vertically challenged carousing buddies to Western Wisconsin's finest town festivals, ice cream socials, church picnics, barn dances, and dank taverns cum bait shops over this Fourth of July weekend, Arabian Facebuster actually possesses the capacity to follow through and deliver with our assertions.

And just because I've been slacking off with regard to content here on 'da Facebuster, I'm going to make this a 2 for 1 on Friday Night Videos. And since this weekend is a celebration of America's founding and freedoms, I thought it fitting that we celebrate our greatest contribution to global culture and civilization -- Randy & Bill, The Mulkey Brothers.

Clip 1 features our favorite hapless, pasty, and glaringly out of shape jobber tag team combination doing what they do best, bumping around like lotto balls just before the big Saturday night mega millions drawing and getting squashed in abrupt and convincing order. The suppliers of this onslaught on a 1987 episode of NWA Pro Wrestling: Animal & Hawk, The Road Warriors. I'm sure the uploader of the clip wishes to apologize to you all for the poor sound quality.

Clip 2 also comes from the NWA Pro Wrestling broadcast and features the NWA debut of the jacked to the gills lumbering lug The Warlord. Standing in his way...none other than a purple trunked Mulkey Bro that answers to the name "Randy."Unsurprisingly, other than his impressive and no doubt steroid enabled physique, The Warlord adds nothing of value to this's all Mulkey running from post to post, taking massive, dynamic, MAN SIZED bumps in the process. The tremendous pairing of Bob Caudle and Jim Cornette narrate the action.

That concludes this edition of Friday Night Videos. Fire back one more beer, kick the cabin fatties out, and head off to bed. We'll do it all over again next week.
