History: Hulk Hogan and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff [Videos]

Airing on July 19, 1986, Hulk Hogan and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff took on the tag team duo of King Kong Bundy and Big John Studd in Poughkeepsie, New York. Watch for the subtle clues before and throughout the match and the surprise finish that set off one of the fiercest feuds in World Wrestling Federation history. The Hogan-Orndorff feud would eventually be named Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine's Feud of the Year for 1986, by a vote of the magazine's readers. In addition, Orndorff also received the Pro Wrestling Illustrated's Most Hated Wrestler of the Year award in 1986.

The Captivating Career of... [Videos]

Cultaholic is an entertainment/video production organization based out of Newcastle, England with a primary focus on professional wrestling. In late 2017, Cultaholic launched a YouTube channel along with a website that featured their original content. The Cultaholic crew has been recognized for its extensive knowledge regarding professional wrestling, as well as their excellent production value.

Below are some of their videos featuring a retrospective look at some of the most popular wrestlers in history.

Ric Flair

"To be the man, you've gotta beat the man." To varying degrees, "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair was the man throughout his distinguished and illustrious career...

Bret Hart

"It was the sagely Gorilla Monsoon that coined the nickname, "The Excellence of Execution" for Bret Hart, and while "The Hitman" is a wonderfully-concise descriptor for Hart, Monsoon's declaration is perhaps more fitting. Nearly 20 years have passed since Bret Hart took to the ring as a full-time wrestler, and while we've seen wrestlers since perform rather marvelously between the ropes, few have ever matched Hart's combined offering of timing, psychology, realism, precision, and grittiness. Bret Hart was a champion for many reasons, valued for his earnestness and work ethic, beloved for his understated heroics, and legendary for his innate ability to always rise to the occasion."

'Macho Man' Randy Savage

"The confident flamboyance, gravelly baritone, and acidic ramblings of Macho Man Randy Savage have lent themselves well to parody and imitation. Even if our voices creak and crack as we attempt our own Macho monologues, we can't help but try and channel the spirit of pro wrestling's most colorful paradox - the eloquent madman, the untamed animal that could wax philosophically before clawing your eyes out. Through the decades, we saw many shades of Randy Savage, from chauvinistic villain to virtuous hero to enthusiastic meat snack pitchman. But what we also saw was the gifted athlete and orator who was the only man capable of doing his unique version of justice to each of those roles..."

Andre the Giant

"To be billed as standing seven feet four inches tall and weighing in excess of a quarter ton is to be lent out for comparisons. As far as professional wrestling is concerned, Andre the Giant was and still is, the measuring stick for every subsequent monster that has attempted to walk in his chasmic footprints. We marvel at his astonishing acreage, yet Andre defied measurement."

Shawn Michaels 

"For many years, Shawn Michaels would brashly let us all know just who WWE's unquestioned showstopper really was. Even if you detested Michaels with every fiber of your being, you had to come to the same conclusion as the most dedicated of HBK boosters: "The Heartbreak Kid" truly was the greatest at what he did. No wrestler before or since has displayed his particular blend of technique, charisma, selling, timing, athleticism, and rare intangibles. You don't earn the name "Mr. WrestleMania" without excelling on the largest stage time and time again, and no wrestler would do so as consistently, and with as much gusto, as Shawn Michaels."

The Undertaker

"For nearly three decades, The Undertaker has cast an enormous shadow over the WWE landscape, presiding at different times as its Frankenstein's monster, its Batman, its Satan incarnate, and its Clint Eastwood, sometimes a combination of those four archetypes. No professional wrestler has ever had such a continuous presence in McMahon-centric sports entertainment quite like the everpresent "Phenom", nor will any other wrestler likely match up to his awing longevity..."

Stone Cold Steve Austin

"His in-ring career lasted a mere 13 and a half years, spanning from September 1989 to March 2003. And yet, it feels like Stone Cold Steve Austin's time as a transcendent and influential star in professional wrestling has been eternal. More than 20 years have passed since that first tidal wave of celebratory beers, middle fingers, flagrant law-breaking, and Whoop-Ass cans by the boatload, and yet it still feels like at any moment, the glass can shatter, and all Hell could be on the verge of breaking loose. In less than 14 years as an active wrestler, Steve Austin carved out a legacy that has spawned inspiration and imitation, but never once duplication."

The Rock

"Kids, teens, and adults alike will attest to his one-in-a-trillion cool factor that facilitates his otherworldly success. And yet, he's the same guy that used to tepidly execute outdated babyface offense before disinterested crowds in 1997. Yes, that was Rocky Maivia and not The Rock, but c'mon - what are the odds that such a basic, blandly-presented wrestler would one day become the modern-day King of All Media and Multimedia?"

Kurt Angle

"Olympic gold medallist Kurt Angle."

Eddie Guerrero

"It's truly special to witness a figure that can inspire and astound you for their performances as they do in their mild-mannered real life. If the only Eddie Guerrero we ever knew was the remarkable athlete whose appealing underhandedness and raw emotion artfully enhanced his razor-sharp wrestling, we'd have been privileged enough. But to see that same man be written off and forsaken due to his overwhelming demons, only to valiantly, and sincerely, turn his life around for the better, is to find that achievement greater than any of his working exploits. The man known as "Latino Heat" touched the hearts of millions, in both well-crafted fiction, and stark reality."

Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling [Videos]

Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling is the autobiography written by professional wrestling legend, Bret Hart. Published on October 16, 2007, the book details Hart's life and how it was greatly influenced by professional wrestling.

"Forget everything you thought you knew about the insane world of professional wrestling. The sixth son of legendary Canadian wrestling promoter Stu Hart, Bret Hart was born into wrestling royalty. From his early twenties until he retired at forty-three, Hart kept an audio diary, recording stories of the wrestling life: the relentless travel, the practical jokes, the sex and steroids and cocaine, and the real rivalries (as opposed to the staged ones that unfolded before the fans)."

Tag Team Battles: Demolition vs The Powers of Pain [Videos]

Formed in the World Wrestling Federation in early 1987 as villains, the team of Ax and Smash, collectively known as Demolition, went on to become three-time WWF World Tag Team Champions. Beginning with the betrayal of Mr. Fiji during the 1988 Survivor Servies, Demolition started their official run as fan favorites until they became villains again with the addition of team member Crush, in the spring of 1990.

Formed in 1987 in the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), the team of The Barbarian and The Warlord, took on the name of the Powers of Pain. Arriving in the World Wrestling Federation in June 1988, the first tag team they faced on a regular basis was Demolition. Originally known as heroic good guys, the Powers of Pain turned into villains with their alliance with Mr. Fuji in November 1988.

The Powers of Pain battled against Demolition in at least a dozen television matches in the WWF that spanned from July 1988 to January 1990.

Vintage Wrestlers: Vincent Lopez [Videos]

Vincent Lopez was born Daniel Vincent Lopez DeVinaspre in Meridian, Idaho on July 24, 1908. Lopez was the son of Spanish immigrants and was a standout football player while in high school.

Lopez entered professional wrestling in early 1930 traveling throughout the world including Australia, Hawaii, and South America. In Los Angeles, California on his birthday, July 24, 1935, Lopez defeated Man Mountian Dean in the Undisputed World Heavyweight Championship tournament final.

Lopez was mainly known as a "bad guy" and the fans loved to hate him. Lopez held the World Heavyweight Championship for over a year, defending the title against the likes of Gino Garibaldi, George Calzi, and Howard Cantonwine.

On April 27, 1936, Vincent Lopez was presented with the “Lou Daro World Heavyweight Championship Trophy” by Civil Service Commission President George Lyon.  Lyon was acting on behalf of Los Angeles Mayor Frank Shaw.  The presentation was made at a special luncheon at the Biltmore Hotel. Among the others in attendance were promoter Jack Daro, matchmaker Joe “Toots” Mondt, and the Los Angeles Chief of Police Davis.

On August 19, 1936, a historic three falls match between Vincent Lopez and Dave Levin took place at Wrigley Field in Los Angeles, California. Coming from different parts of the county and different organizational championship lines, both Levin and Lopez claimed to be the world champion. Lopez would lose two of the three falls and Levin was declared the victor. In classic "bad guy style," after the loss, Lopez proclaimed that he was robbed of the victory, and blamed referee McCullough.

Lopez would continue to wrestle for over 25 years facing champions and upstart wrestlers alike.
