Back when the WWE was still known as the WWF, we spent many hours watching the back-breaking suplexes and collar-tightening sleeper holds. This love for faux wrestling further translated to collecting the plastic figurines, as well. Wasn’t quite an obsession, but with older brothers, was certainly close enough.
Which reminds us. Twenty years ago on July 4, the deck of the Intrepid became the scene for a highly propagandist and borderline-offensive wrestling bout. The “Stars and Stripes Body Slam Challenge.” Of all the entrants, it was All American Lex Luger (wearing high-waist denim) who defied the odds and body slammed Yokozuna. We remember watching this match as a young bloke and totally eating it up. Funny seeing the total camp factor all these years later.
