Welcome to Ring Riffs, where we take the absolute worst of professional wrestling and wrap it up in a neat little episodic package for your entertainment…and my own sense of masochism.

I have made my (small) claim to fame writing here at 411 (even a Goldberg-like Fact or Fiction undefeated streak), but I have taken a break from the written word for now because school is a little too heavy to hammer out some complex thoughts about the current wrestling climate. On the odd occasion, I’ll be able to slip a new column out. I am both a professional wrestling fanatic and a glutton for punishment, so I have found other ways to get my wrestling fix out there.

Ring Riffs is my video love letter to everything absolutely horrid about professional wrestling. We are all aware that, like any form of entertainment, there is the best of it and the worst of it. We nerd-rage over matches and moments that are beneath our expectations of what wrestling should be – but over time, those terrible moments become inside jokes and memes for us to point and laugh at, wondering exactly what life-altering drugs were ingested by those who believed their ideas would get over with the wrestling fanbase.

So here we are, and here I am, ready to exploit the bottom of the barrel when it comes to wrestling matches. There is an entire galaxy of terrible matches for your entertainment…and for my punishment for the evil things I have done in my life.

Episode 5 begins an arduous, month-long journey into the endless rabbit hole of cattle feces that is WCW Uncensored 1995, considered as one of the absolute worst pay per views of all time. The PPV started on the highest of highs…which means that it started in the most insane way possible. A grudge match taking place on the back of a truck? In a promotion that dismissed blood as a rule? With helicopter shots galore that makes it impossible at times to see the action? What could possibly go wrong? Experience the WTF of The King of the Road Match between Dustin Runnels and The Blacktop Bully.

***WARNING***If you are easily offended by words, or if you are generally a good parent who doesn’t want their children exposed to potty-mouthed anger, viewer discretion is advised.
