Top Ten Favorite Things On Youtube #3: Hogan/Flair Yappapi Strap Match Promo Remix

One hobby among wrestling fans is to poke fun at some of the sillier moments in wrestling history, and one event that ranks up their among the silliest is the yappapi match.

In March 2000 World Championship Wrestling had their Uncensored Pay Per View event in which the main event was Hulk Hogan (who was back to the red and yellow/not the evil Hollywood Hogan anymore) vs Ric Flair in a strap match. In a strap match the two wrestlers are tied together, and you win by touching all four corners of the ring. For some reason WCW decided to call this a Yappapi Indian Strap Match. The origins of the word Yappapi are unknown to me, but I’m going to guess there isn’t really an Indian tribe by that name.  (Even better, during the match Hogan won by pinfall, the rules of touching all for corners were seemingly ignored at the end.)

Anyway Hogan cut some pretty crazy promos for this match, and once youtube came around people were editing them into some funny videos. The one I’m linking has this promo, along with a Flair promo from when he and Hogan toured Australia years later, set to music. Pure nuttiness in all its glory. Enjoy.
