Video: Cooking show pilot starring Savage/Big Show Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/17/2017 at 06:13 PM
A few weeks ago, I was sorting through some of my Father's belongings (he passed in 2014) when I came across this on VHS.
Here are some clips from my Father's, (Jim Strauser) cooking show "Wrestlin' Up Some Grub".
Back in 1999, my Father pulled together Paul Wight (WWE's Big Show), Macho Man Randy Savage, The Bushwhackers and Brian Knobs (of the "Nasty Boys") to do a unique cooking show that combined food and wrestlers. He rented a Tampa studio and made it happen in one day. It was never picked up by a network. My Father pitched it to WWF (at the time, now WWE), Food Network and other networks. Looking at the stuff on Food Network these days, I wonder if it would have worked 10 years later.
The audio is poor, but I am working on reducing the noise and removing anything I can. Meanwhile, I wanted to get a small clip up for family and friends that wished to see it.
