Thumbwrestlers Rule

Indulge me on this slow Friday. I mean, come on...its a leap year/day, for cryin' out loud.

I came across Mental_Floss' WWF Superstars Quiz and started thinking about Thumbwrestlers. There's no adequate video of these amazing toys on the Youtubes, but I found this site. They actually had the commercial to download, so I embedded it using the awful fantastic Blogger video embedder.

I know for a fact I had Big John Studd and Hillbilly Jim. Nothing sick about sticking your thumb into a hole just above a rubber wrestler's ass.

Good times, the '80s.

Nikolai Volkoff, a forgotten legend.

Not that forgotten...he ran for public office in Maryland just last year.

Just read that on his page. Wow, that's impressively insane.

More impressive...that Nikolai Volkoff has a Wikipedia page

Wow, I even forgot I had that commercial on my site. I feel like I left it somewhere in the internet's moldy basement. Good find!

But yeah, they were pretty cool collectibles for WWF (WWE) fans. But as far as actual "thumb-wrestling" goes, playing without those things was more fun.
