A recent post by VicSage featuring Robocop and Richard Nixon got me thinking that I’d seen pictures of Robocop in another unusual setting – the wrestling ring!
I wondered idly if this was actually an episode from the Prime Directives TV series but the internet put me straight on the matter – it was a 1990 pay per view event called Capital Combat: Return of Robocop from World Championship Wrestling. Youtube provides the promo videos and footage of the day when Sting and Robocop joined forced.
Best line of the video – “Here comes Robocop, Bob!”. Classic. Though I can’t help but wonder who on earth came up with this?
What I can’t tell from the video is if there was any actual Robocop wrestling? The poster below reads as though there should have been. If you watched this event, I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
