Sid don’t want none of that.

    One more directive. “Uphold the law.” I wonder what that will be. :)

  • RWill

    And so we are reminded that wrestling has NEVER had any dignity.

    Wasn't this back when breaking kayfabe was some serious taboo in the industry? How the fuck did they expect to explain Robocop showing up and fighting The Horsemen?

    Robocop… WTF they did to you….

    Worst WCW moment ever…

    Okay, maybe the finger poke a doom is, but this is a close tie.

    2 more directives… although the one about not attempting the arrest of an OCP officer might be a toughy.

  • MaSQuEdePuSTA

    At least, one can assume Peter Weller never got on that stage.
    Well, thinking about the track record of the guys at Orion: I wouldn't put it past them to have tried to make it happen.

  • backtoklondike

    1. What the heck was that cage made of, cardboard?
    2. Robocop fighting (were they about to fight?) against that wrestler is not fair. It is like having Chuck Norris fight against Scrooge McDuck. (And just to clear this up, Scrooge is Chuck Norris mentor.)

  • EvilClaire

    are you serious? they actually did that? ya know, if it was made of metal, it might have made a sound when it it the floor.

  • Lowcifur

    This hurts my soul. In my ass.

    Between this and Rick Steiner having an argument with Chucky on the big screen, this is more entertaining. Seriously, Robocop…

  • http://twitter.com/DavidFinniss David Finniss

    …What.

  • SignNinja

    Say what you want about this, Robocop helps Sting is far more entertaining than, say, old lady giving birth to a hand and DX strapping midgets to skateboards

    this ones better than teh first, lol!

  • Diggerjohn111

    Wrestlers, Japanese Fried Chicken and RoboCop. Odd feeling having, I am.

  • walmor

    Wrestlers, Japanese KFC and Robocop…Noah, you're getting a little bit predictable, i may say

    But it's still funny like hell

    Spoony! Get on it, make a new vid! No more diversions :)

    What the fuck was that? Robocop?

  • PandaBrawler

    WCW really did have its moments.
    Robocop, Chucky, David Arquette, Dennis Rodman, Drew Carey (oh wait, that was WWE…)

    robocop vs undertaker, wrestlemania 26!!!! It's gonna be a slobberknocker

  • dennett316

    If I'd have seen this clip years ago when I still thought wrestling was real, I think my mind would have exploded. As it stands it's just about the worst thing I've ever seen in wrestling. Yep, even the hand was better as it was a pun (Well, let's give Mae Young a hand. *applause*) and so instantly more entertaining than hearing Jim Ross seamlessly switch from wrestling angle to “oh…and here comes Robocop”.

  • CyanideBlizzard

    Oh man that is OLD school Sting. My gosh, I haven't seen that in some time. Reminds me of the good old daysl.

  • Anonymous

    Haha YES!!!! I have this on a V.H.S back home. Doesn’t the undertaker wrestle at that event under an earlier pseudonym? Oh, W.C.W nostalgia!!!!

    The funny thing is… this isn't the weirdest moment in Pro-Wrestling…

    Good grief wrestling, are you even *trying* not to look fake anymore? :¬

  • nick3889

    thats a very good point

  • nick3889

    Man that wrestling Moment has got to be up there with the giant Chicken one, Kudos to who know what i'm talkin about

  • thedeadpool

    wow that has to be the best tag team ever STing and Robocop.

  • thedeadpool

    best tag team ever sting and robocop.

    “But here comes Robocop, Bob.” I… I got nothing.

  • Chief_Blank

    lol…hey do you remember the episode where Robocop is playing chess…

  • areoborg

    Does nothing shock announcers at wrestling shows?

    I mean, Robocop just walks in out of nowhere, and they're like: “Oh hey… Robocop is here… THEY LOCKED STING IN A CAGE! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!?!

  • MrSaturn

    Is Rick Steiner's feud with Chucky up there?

  • theryno665

    Not really sure what the point of these Robocop videos are but I enjoy them nonetheless. Maybe a result of your pain meds, eh?

    By the way, whenever I see Robocop rescue Sting. I can't help but think of robocopatemylife.ytmnd.com. Thanks YTMND!

  • hwalsh

    … What… The… HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    *dies laughing*

    The announcers… Just… LOL… I can't stop laughing… F***ing Robocop walks out… And the announcers are like… It's Robocop… Like… I'm sorry… I'd be a little confused when f***ing ROBOCOP walks out and rips off a metal door.

  • AggsOfSpades

    Just wow. I mean I thought I was jaded, but these guys don't even flinch seeing Robocop walk in. I gotta find a way to stop laughing now.

  • caffeinatedbacon

    These guys must encounter Robo Cop daily. Whatever the announcers and wrestlers make, it's not enough. The odds of performing that little skit with a straight face are near impossible. I'm hoping they were high, 'cause there is no other way to explain it.

    Obviously I'm no wrestling fan…but how the hell do you write Robo Cop into the script? How does that happen on purpose?

  • http://twitter.com/CMWaters Chris Waters

    To the people complaining about the announcers not reacting…IIRC, Robocop was announced as coming in ahead of time, so it wouldn't have been as much of a surprise.

    Still a stupid moment though.

  • EatTheHumans

    …I ….There are just no words for this.

    Wrestlemania 26: Robocop vs. The Gobbeldy Gooker with Chucky as guest ref.

    BOOK IT!

  • ssnakebite

    “how the hell do you write Robo Cop into the script?”

    You don't. This is WCW we're talking about. And IIRC, Russo-era WCW (for non-wrestling fans Vince Russo is a booker known for coming up with some of the stupidest, most nonsensical stories in pro wrestling history -and considering the amount of crap we wrestling fans are ready to accept as plausible that says a lot- and for generally being an egomaniac dick), so it didn't feel the need to make the least bit of sense and any random crap could happen, especially if it made no goddamn sense.

  • http://www.facebook.com/TimADugan Tim Dugan

    This has to be one of the worst moments in wrestling history…freakin' Robocop? Are you kidding me? I knew WCW was bad a times, but Jesus…

  • http://www.facebook.com/TimADugan Tim Dugan

    Oh God…why did you have to remind me that Drew Carey took part in the Royal Rumble? Like they couldn't bring in some washed up wrestling celeb to at least TRY to make an interesting appearance…

  • hwalsh

    I dunno man…

    I mean, wrestling has been known to have everything from:

    Afghan Princes (Iron Sheik)
    Spiritual Warriors (Ultimate Warrior)
    Undead Zombies (The Undertaker)
    Multi-Billionaire Playboys (Million Dollar Man)
    Psychotic Bikers (Road Warriors)
    Vampires (Gangrel)
    Voodoo Priests (Papa Shango)
    Superheroes (Hurricane)
    Psychotic Mass Murderers (Cain)
    Druid Wizards (The Undertaker… Again…)
    Texas Oil Barons (JBL)
    Ghetto Gangsta Rappers… That are white guys from the South… (John Cena)
    Millionaire Playboy Diamond Moguls turned Roughneck Redneck… (“Stunning” Steve Austin anyone?)

    That honestly… Robocop… Not all that strange.

    Also, need I remind everyone, that around this time in the WWF (not WWE) the Undertaker was winning his matches by calling down lightning bolts to strike his enemies down.

    So yeah… Robocop… Not all that strange.

  • http://www.youtube.com/smeghead4269 Smeghead

    Yeah, WCW did some pretty stupid shit back then. As bad as wrestling is nowadays, this is a good reminder that it could be worse.

  • http://www.facebook.com/TimADugan Tim Dugan

    Ya know what, I can almost forgive all of those (though zombies not so much…). At least they're mostly confined to the characters in wrestling. We're talking about making a movie fictional character into a one night prop for Sting in an event that lasted like 10 seconds :P

    So…yeah, I'd call pulling Robocop out just a bit above strange :P

  • http://www.facebook.com/TimADugan Tim Dugan

    Ya know, it's not even the fact that the Horsemen put Sting in a cage and he was busted out. Now, I was not watching WCW when this happened, but seriously, couldn't they have just had Sting bust out of it himself? Or have someone from the back come down and effectuate the same result? Did they have to bring ROBOCOP into the mix? :P

    Gosh, and I used to like wrestling too. Now I look at it all and wonder what the hell I ever saw in it.

  • fmdof

    i have no idea why wcw did so bad.

  • natethedestroyer

    hahahah ph nevermind Spoony's on top of it, yeah and i mean people were supposed to believe that was real?! even for wrestlign thats a stretch

  • http://www.facebook.com/heirofsparda Nate Anderson

    Give it a few months and TNA will be doing this too.

    I'd rather have Robocop than the Nasty Boys.

    Couple of problems with your list:

    * Iron Shiek was Iranian, not Afghani
    * John Cena isn't from the South; he's from Massachusetts

    But yeah, point taken

  • RPGaholic

    Oh wow, yeah, back before we had monthly PPVs. I remember the lead up to this. Sting's leg was broken because he refused to give up his title shot against Flair and was kicked out of the Horsemen, which would be his “achilles heel.” Come 1990 and the knee's injured again, negating a title shot for the Stinger, so Sting's buddy Lex Luger ended up with the title shot while Sting was unable to compete, and Sting wanted to be in Luger's corner. Sting, in no real shape to defend himself should Ole, Arn, and new Horseman Sid Vicious (fortunately Woman wasn't accompanying the Horsemen at the time to avoid any potential Sex Pistols joke) decide to further injure him. It was announced that Sting would have a bodyguard, and then it was announced who the bodyguard was, Robocop.

    I am now glad I couldn't afford that PPV, as I would have played it up in my mind to being far more than it was.

    I know this post was made like a month ago, but I just realized something: Didn't they do that once with Honky Tonk Man?

  • TimADugan

    I'm actually positive they did it more than once with him, but it was at LEAST once ;)
