Sunny Has Sex With Elmo AKA The First Two Episodes of WWF (WWE) Shotgun Saturday Night

WWE's first attempt at an "edgier" show was the short-lived Shotgun Saturday Night which featured Sunny have sex with Elmo in one episode.

Season 6 - Episode #45: Sunny Has Sex With Elmo AKA The First Two Episodes of WWF Shotgun Saturday Night

I honestly can't believe this is real. Back in early 1997, before the Attitude Era was in full swing, WWF decided to run a weekly live show from nightclubs in NYC. It was called Shotgun Saturday Night and it was an attempt at bringing "edgier" content to the company. Well it was a complete failure and gave us some moments that are simply unbelievable. The main one was when Sunny had sex with Elmo! Others included, The Flying Nuns, Hog Farmers, midget wrestling with Jim Cornette, Honky Tonk Man karaoke, a pregnant Goldust and so much more!

It's Me Austin! (The Greater Power/Higher Power) and the 20th Anniversary of David Arquette as WCW Champion

The Greatest Power/Higher Power angle was the most wasted storyline in WWE history. We are also celebrating the 20th anniversary of David Arquette becoming the WCW champion.

Season 6 - Episode #43: It's Me Austin! (The Greater Power/Higher Power) and the 20th Anniversary of David Arquette as WCW Champion

WWE has a history of ruining well built up angles but this one is by far the worst. The Greater Power (also known as Higher Power) story was a massive one that spanned five months and utilized the biggest names in the company. It had good, if not bizarre, character development and was pretty intriguing at least. But in five seconds they threw it completely down the drain with the worst reveal in wrestling history.

We also have to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our show's Patron Saint David Arquette winning the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. On April 26th, 2000, he pinned Eric Bischoff to become the first actor to hold the gold. He went on a memorable two week run culminating in a heel turn at Slamboree in a triple cage match with DDP and Jeff Jarrett.

WWE Releases and The Unfortunate Career of Muhammad Hassan

WWE has had their biggest firing spree of all time and for the show we talk about the short-lived career of Muhammad Hassan and how WWE took this character too far.

Season 6 - Episode #42: WWE Releases and The Unfortunate Career of Muhammad Hassan

This was a brutal week for many WWE wrestlers as a spree of releases torn through the company.

For the show this week we go back to 2004-5 when a new character debuted. Muhammad Hassan was portrayed initially as an Arab-American who had turned on America due to racist oppression in the wake of 9/11. It was actually a pretty well done heel character both from a writing perspective and from Hassan. He started to rise in the ranks and was being positioned for a massive push when it all came crashing down due to an awful segment at the worst time.

For our 100th episode we are going back to WCW in 1999 when Chris Jericho and Perry Saturn had a feud that involved a crooked ref, cross-dressing and dog collars.

Season 6 - Episode #41: 100th Episode: Chris Jericho Makes Saturn Wear A Dress

We have somehow made it to 100 episodes of Behind The Gorilla! Thanks so much to all of you who listen to our crazy show!

This week we have a topic that goes from pretty weird to downright freaky. Perry Saturn found himself in a feud with Chris Jericho in January of 1999 in WCW. It started with a crooked referee Scott Dickinson helping Jericho win on several occasions. This lead to a match at Souled Out where if Saturn lost he had to wear a dress. It would escalate to Saturn becoming a cross-dressing Gothic transvestite looking character and a dog collar match. You don't want to miss this one!
