Geek House Guide: Vol 2, Ish 4

Sorry we were late with this issue, but work, illness, technical difficulties, and Brian's hit-and-run got in our way. See?!?:
No Brians were hurt in the filming of this accident.
Legit, Brian is not hurt, but the sucka what did it got away like a thief in the night. If he was a terrible wrasslin' gimmick, he'd be the Hit-And-Runner, and he'd suck.

WCW's answer to those video gaming things the kids are into: Glacier

And what would become Glacier's MORTAL enemies (Get it? MORTAL? Get it? Yeah, yeah...), Wrath and Mortis!
And their manager...an evil...banker?
 The Dudley family (ECW)

Yup, Gene Simmons owns the trademark for this:

KISS not rocking out, and without makeup on:

Ok, back to wrasslin'. Lightning round!!!
Great Khali
Fit Finlay and his little b...uddy
Ugh...so boring
Lex made boring an artform
Hey look! Two people who actually want to watch us!
Feels X-rated just putting this guy here
Wonder if Godfather employed as many people as Vince?
Beaver Cleavage. Were they even trying at this point?
The Attitude Era, producing genius gimmicks like Meat.
Boogeyman meets Donald Trump. Cause I just had to:

Doink the Clown, predating the current evil clown phase by decades.
Seriously, though. This clown nonsense is ridiculous and dangerous.

And speaking of dangerous.
I love how often people call Vince McMahon a visionary. 
Can't really blame Arachnaman on Vince, however.
I can blame Xanta Klaus on him.
And Duke "The Dumpster" Droese
And Repo Man.
Lest we forget:

And another moment of greatness from WCW:
That little kid left front is the legendary Rey Mysterio, Jr. A sad time for wrasslin' fans everywhere.
But at least we got "Rap Is Crap" out of it:

Making it work:
From TNA's Okato to...
IWGP Heavyweight Champion "Rainmaker" Kazuchika Okada
From Miz's stunt double Damien Mizdow to...
Getting the pop of the night at Wrestlemania 31

And finally, Brian hates The Miz cause of this:

And probably this:

But Casey loves The Miz cause of this: 

And this:
