Hulk Hogan vs. The Great Muta


It's not usual protocol for the WB4R podcast to promote matches other than NJHC/WWF matches. However, your favorite podcaster just has this guilty pleasure of watching some rare wrestling footage on YouTube.com. Yes, there's a lot of crap, but I love seeing the classic World Wrestling Federation videos that people post, as well as some rare Japanese videos that I wouldn't normally see.

I stumbled upon a match between Hulk Hogan and The Great Muta, who was for a long-time The Ivy Leaguer's favorite wrestler (you can see that the Harvard Elbow is very Muta-esque in its execution). According to the post, this match took place in Japan around 1993. I think Hogan left the WWF in 1993 when he lost the title to Yokozuna. It's weird though. He's wearing the WWF title belt, yet he's wearing what looks like WCW Hulka-wear and he's accompanied to the ring by Jimmy Hart.

What's neat about this video is that it's like a bizarro-world. In this match, Hogan doesn't really suck up to the fans like he does in the USA. And even more weird is that Hogan actually does some WRESTLING MOVES!!!

Anyway, this isn't an official podcast, just a link here on the blog to the YouTube Flash movie. I'm interested in what you WB4R fans think about it.

Hi,

I have been trying to search for Undertaker videos or dvd's to buy.

Can you recommend something in case you know where to order?

Thanks!
