Honky Tonk Man’s WWF debut… as a face

From the Random Stuff Department: It’s no big secret that the Honky Tonk Man debuted in the WWF in 1986 as a babyface, but I’d never seen his first match until now. Oh man, this was a terrible idea all around. His look was awful, the commentary was hilariously awful (Jesse Ventura making fun of Honky AND Hulk Hogan, and Vince McMahon trying his best to keep up), and the crowd silently shit on the whole thing. Good times. -Eric

    Nice find. Honky’s opponent looked like Frasier Crane. Was that a chorus of boos as the bell rang? Awesome for all the wrong reasons.
