*HYPE* Wrestling With Pop Culture

Greetings everyone, my name is Joe and I’m what you would call, a pop culture nerd. I love everything from movies to retro video gaming, and everything in between. I also have a love for pro wrestling, especially old school wrestling. Some of my favorite “Old School” wrestlers include; Razor Ramon, Bret Hart, Ric Flair, and Randy Savage.
Now a days, pro wrestling and pop culture go hand in hand. However, there was a time when that wasn’t the case. It would be rare to see a wrestler on a television show or a wrestler hocking a product on a commercial. When that stuff did happen it stood out, such as Freddie Blassie on the Dick Van Dyke Show or King Kong Bundy selling computers. It was also rare to see products geared towards wrestling fans, like video game or albums.

In the coming weeks and months I will posting articles that cover these topics in great detail to help show how much of a big deal these things were, and how it help shape the business that we know today. I hope you enjoy what I have to bring to you. So, stay tuned, Brother!!!
