WTF Friday: The Gobbledy Gooker
It’s Survivor Series weekend. What else did you expect today?
For weeks leading up to Survivor Series 1990, the WWF hyped up what was in this giant egg. There was all sorts of speculation about what or who it could be. Many thought it could be a debuting wrestler, possibly even Ric Flair.
But fans were extremely disappointed. Instead, they got an actual person dressed as a turkey. It was Hector Guerrero as the Gobbledy Gooker. And the fans rightfully shit on it. And it goes down as one of the biggest flops in WWF history.
