Yokozuna & Bastian Booger vs. Men On A Mission (and other Dream Matches)

Richard Land on Twitter: "An absolute TRAVESTY we never got a Yokozuna vs Bastion Booger feud!… "

It’s a shock and a tragedy that I can’t find any solo matches between these two.

And we’re back with more of wrestling’s wildest Dream Matches! Can you withstand the power of Yoko & Booger working the world’s softest match with Mo & Mabel? More Booger, as he wrestles Rick Martel in a battle of opposites! Also watch the Dungeon of Doom’s B-Team crush High Voltage, Joe Gomez & The Renegade! Speaking of “Plain Old Rick”, watch his last match as he fights Wrath during his “Goldberg” Run! And did you know that Terry Taylor had the world’s most forgettable run in the WWF during 1992-93? True story! He takes on Jim Powers!

As always, these are all readily available on YouTube.

YOKOZUNA & BASTIAN BOOGER (w/ Mr. Fuji) vs. MEN ON A MISSION (Mabel & Mo, w/ Oscar):
* An Oakland, California house show gets this AMAZING Dream Match, featuring four huge fat guys (when Mo is the Cruiserweight, you know a match will be good). Yoko was actually WWF Champion at this time, apparently. He tosses his salt right on a ring attendant and shoves the announcer after announcing the faces, then he & Mabel won’t get out of each other’s faces, practically squashing Hebner between them- dude has gotta be ribbing these guys. The terrible video and sound transfer has robbed us of Oscar’s famous diction, sadly.

Renegade


What on earth was the deal with Renegade?   Did Vince ever sue for such a Warrior ripoff?   And did the fans shit on him when they realized he wasn't Hellwig?   I mean by early 95, it was pretty awful with washed up WWF guys everywhere but to me Renegade takes the cake

​Well as to the legality, at some point Vince lost the rights to the whole Warrior gimmick back to Hellwig, so it might have been a case of him not being able to sue in the first place.  And yes, fans absolutely shit on Renegade from the moment he debuted, because WCW had essentially been promising Ultimate Warrior.  I think Hogan legitimately thought he could build up this clod into a Warrior-type foil and draw money with him, but I'm not in his deranged mind so I couldn't say for sure.  ​
