I’m sure that it’s not just me, but it seems like a ton, if not the majority of professional wrestling fans constantly complain about every single decision that WWE makes… while continuing to tune in every week and spending a ton of money on merchandise every year.
While I’m still a new enough fan that I really don’t understand all of the hate (I like Roman, every PPV doesn’t suck, let’s just see where this Jordan Angle thing goes, etc, etc), the one thing that fans seem consistently excited and constantly postitive about is the Southpaw Regional Wrestling parody series.
The YouTube series premiered (and surprised pretty much everyone) back in March of this year, and it’s nearly impossible not to watch it all in one sitting. The series is a parody of 1980’s Southern wrestling, and stars many of the biggest WWE superstars playing characters far, far more ridiculous and over the top than those that they typically portray. I’m not from the South, and I wasn’t alive in the 1980’s, but I’ve heard that it’s a fairly accurate representation as well.
Once the first set of episodes was released, I was sure that another Southpaw tape would never be found, and that the series would be finished for good.
Today, with the help of some new sponsors (like some futuristic invisible deodorant spray) a new season of Southpaw regional wrestling has debuted online, and somehow it’s even funnier than the first.
Thanks, WWE. I still love you.
