Rifftrax WWE Shout-out

So, last night, the boys from the Sci-Fi Channel era of MST3K Bill Corbett (Crow T. Robot), Mike Nelson (Mike), Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo) riffed on 1998’s horrible version of “Godzilla”. 

The last Rifftrax event for Sharknado featured a pre-show joke about ECW. The guys have been making references to WWE for years. Last night was no exception.

The show started a bit light on the laughs but picked up about a quarter of the way in and really rolled along as Godzilla invaded the city for the first time.
There were a few WWE references I found pretty funny — among them was Matthew Broderick’s blonde love interest “moving onto her new boyfriend, Jessie ‘The Body’ Ventura” after they broke up.
The next two were pretty good:
Mike Nelson: “Destroy Madison Square Garden?
The hallowed ground for Wrestlemania? Blasphemy…”
Mike Nelson: “This is the biggest let-down since the Gobbledy Gooker…”
As always…push the button, Frank…
