QOTD 106: Soccer Dog: European Cup (and friends)

I recently saw the best movie of all time.

Soccer Dog: European Cup. 

I don’t want to ruin anything – but lets just say there’s 1) A soccer playing, genetically enhanced dog 2) A second soccer playing, genertically enhanced dog that uses a regular toilet. 3) A guy who is NOT John Lithgow. 4) Scottish people! 5) The worst CGI Soccer you’ll see in your life.


What’s your favorite so-good-its-bad movie? Specifically movies that didn’t INTEND to be bad, but turned out that way and ended up like campy, silly fun. 

The above does NOT include movies like Sharknado as I’m in the camp that if you intentionally make a bad movie, it loses all camp and ‘silly fun’ value because the joy in such flicks comes from the unintended failings of the director and film crew while trying to make a mostly decent movie. Not that I think the folks making soccer dog thought they were about to win an Oscar, but the ‘bad’ in that feels more genuine than the bad in a SCI-FI movie or what not.

Also Toss in: On The Line, The Room, and Plan 9 from Outer Space   

European Title

So what was the deal with the European Title back in the 90s? At the time, WWF only had three championships, unless light-heavyweight had been added, I'm not sure. 

Was it expected to be an equal to the Intercontinental title? I know they've moved on to have countless titles over the years, but this was the first major new one and I'm wondering if anyone knows what made them pull the trigger?



It was basically a vanity title for Davey Boy Smith that was supposed to boost business in the UK market by having him defend it overseas, and then Shawn threw a tantrum and put himself over for the belt to kill it in that market and it became just another joke title from then on.  Nothing else to it, really.
