Toy Commercial Tuesday: WWF Wrestling Superstars

I wasn’t much of a wrestling fan as a kid. That probably stems from my dad actually wrestling in high school and decrying the professionals as actors at best and fakers at worst. I had friends who were really into wrestling and I’d see matches on TV every now and then, but it seemed like WWF was everywhere back then. There was Hulkamania, a cartoon (Hulk Hogan’s Rock N Wrestlers), all kinds of video games, those weird pillow wrestlers and, of course, the classic LJN figures. These guys had no articulation and could probably be used to inflict a serious amount of blunt force trauma to an adversary. I never had any, but my friends did so I’d go over to their houses and sometimes we’d play with them. This commercial is awesome and reminds me of how much fun wrestling at least seemed back then.
