They may have just wanted to make another black figure since they probably already did Ron Simmons.

29 of 30 are white guys. Guess we need another black guy for series 6

I was about to say that Craig Pittman was white until I googled him and realized Iíve been combining Sgt. Craig Pittman and Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker in my memory for fifteen years.

Pittman was also unfortunate in that he came along in a transitional time. I want to think that he showed up in the fall of 1995.

By that winter, WCW was doing early ECW experimentation (Sabu) and a few cruiserweights were showing up. Pittman might have fit in, might even gotten a cult following a few years earlier. I always kinda liked the character.

Lance Russell worked for WCW at some point. Lance Russell was great and is provably my favorite announcer of all time and was a perfect fit for Memphis.

Suck it
Two tears in a bucket
And then another thing
I'm not the one they'll try their luck with
Hit hard like brass knuckles
See your face through the turnbuckle dude
I got no love for you


I tried listening to Tony's podcast, but his cohost sucks and they say too many inappropriate things.

At least the Nitro Grill had fun with the menu items. The most you got out of WWF New York was "the People's Sundae"

I imagine Powerplant Pasta was a dish served cold by Sgt Buddy Lee Parker.

There was absolutely a Slobberknocker Burger and DX "Crotch" Pork Chops. Possibly a Big Valbowski kielbasa? I never actually ate there, just wandered in and contemplated buying remaindered Steve Blackman shirts or whatever.

The WWF cookbook from that time was great and included things like Billy Gunn's Badd Assparagus.

Start pumping your bunions, I'm coming

Flame your crew quicker than Trump fucks his youngest
Now face the flame fuckers your fame and fate's done with

I know you really want to believe that, but you're wrong. Not only was I there a few times when it was still open, but here's the menu:


Not the best quality, but you can still see that almost all the menu items have regular boring names and descriptions.

As other people have semi-pointed out, I am probably mixing up Jim Ross's cookbooks with the WWF New York menu. I probably bought those cookbooks on clearance *at* WWF New York. I have them around somewhere, so those specific menu items might not have been in there, but it was definitely full of actual puns/wrestling names for basic rear end recipes.

The only two recipes I explicitly remember trying from it were:

-Mark Henry's Sexual Chocolate Cake, which I think we probably screwed up because it turned into sludge

-The Undertaker's Turkey Tetrazzini, which was incredibly off-brand but pretty decent, though I had just moved into my own place in college so my standards were probably pretty low

It was way better than Mark Henry's Filth Pie though.
