They have done it.. Re-released the sounds that made wrestling what it today. Vince McMahon had a vision back in the early 80s to make professional wrestling a mainstream product. His first venture in music was this album. Lots of commentary by Vince McMahon, "Mean" Gene Okerland, and Jesse "The Body" Ventura. Hearing songs like "DONT GO MESSING WITH A COUNTRY BOY" reminds me of Hillbilly Jim coming to the ring all over again. "THE LAND OF A THOUSAND DANCES" brings back memories of the WWF/MTV Rock 'n Wrestling connection back in the 80s. Who doesnt get a fond memory of Hulk Hogan coming out everytime you hear "REAL AMERICAN"? Hearing Mona (Cindi Lauper) Flambe, and Rick (Rock 'n Roll Hoochie Coo) Derringer belt out the WWF Champion's Anthem can't be beat.

I'm 32 years old as I write this. I remember buying this album brand new back in the day and spinning it (yes, I had it on an actual RECORD!!!) non stop. When the parents would leave, I would crank it LOUD and lip sync to my favs. My big time heroes at the time were Piper (so of course, I loved For Everybody), and Paul Orndorff (who old school fans will remember came to the ring to Real American after he turned on Hogan. Anyhow, the way I see it, anything that can make you smile is a good thing. This is a CD that will make you smile. It might be lost on those who didn't follow the WWF in the late 80's. I just wish it wasn't 12 bucks.

I purchased the album because of my long time admiration for the world wrestling federation and its supremacy over all its adversaries. The wrestlers on this album are the ones i grew up with from wrestling's first wave of popularity.
There is a typo ( as of 14 Feb. ) on the amazon track listing. There are 10 tracks on this CD and commentary in between by none other than Jessie "The Body" Ventura, Vince McMahon, and Mean Gene Okerlund. Artists on this album include The Wrestlers, JYD, Derringer, Jimmy Hart, Captain Lou, The WWF All-Stars, Roddy Piper, Mean Jean, Hillbilly Jim, and Nikolai Volkoff. It doesn't sound like Hulk Hogan sings on any of these, nor is he pictured with the others on the album cover. Regardless, this album is a must have, as soon as Real American Came on and i looked at the cover and saw all the great wrestlers from yesteryear, i knew this album was a great aquisition to any wrestling collection.

I've been looking for this for quite awhile, and it was worth the wait. Nostalgic WWF fans will love this. Newer fans (Bandwagon jumpers) will recognize Vince and George Steele...unless they watch WCW. Some songs are cheesy, but that was the basis of '80s wrestling (And it was dang fun!). Among songs "sung" by Superstars, the CD contains 3 real entrance themes..."Grab Them Cakes" (JYD), "Don't Go Messin' With A Country Boy" (Hillbilly Jim) and "Real American" which THEN was written for Barry Windham and Mike Rotundo although Hulk Hogan later made it famous. Also, there are no lulls in this CD. Between the songs Jesse Ventura, Vince McMahon, and Gene Okerlund intro the songs. A very nice piece of wrestling history and well worth the money.

I had this on cassette tape when I was a kid and I played it so much that it wore out. About 10 or 11 years ago, I found this in Ames while they were doing their closing sale and it brought me back to when I was 6 years old and these guys were larger than life. I still will listen to this, I actually put it on my ipod to always have when I'm feeling like hearing some old wrestling entertainment. Grab Them Cakes by Junk Yard Dog is my favorite on here, the original Hulk Hogan theme song that was also used on their cartoon show in the 80's is also on here as well as the original full version of Real American. I wish I could get their follow up album "Piledriver" on CD or MP3. If anyone knows where I can get it, please respond and let me know. Thanks!!

The first album made by the WWF (WWE)was the best. This album does it's job in entertaining the listener with it's "recording studio" angle. The songs are great till this day, I mean "Mean" Gene Okerland sang "Tutti Frutti"! Aside from that song, Roddy Piper, Junkyard Dog, Hillbilly Jim, and the great Nickolai Volkoff contributed. It's fun to hear the WWf when it was goofy and more importantly: Suitable.
A great buy to relive some good memories.

I bought this CD a LOOONG time ago, and I must say, it has stuck with me ever since....it's funny, catchy, and an all-around good CD...my only gripe is that it's a little...short (I wish that they HAD done the "duet" at the end)! Other than that, it is an amzing CD packed with good songs

I have been a wrestling fan (some would say "nut") for about 22 years, so I have seen 'em all (ICW, Georgia, Mid-Atlantic, AWA, World Class, WWA, Global, SMW, USWA, CWF [Alabama], Florida, ECW, and the WWF). I had The Wrestling Album on cassette many years ago, and I listened to it a LOT. I gave the tape to somebody several years later, and I missed listening to Roddy Piper's ramblings on "Land Of 1000 Dances" and "For Everybody" ("For Everybody" is my favorite on this CD), Capt. Lou Albano's ramblings on "Capt. Lou's History Of Music/Capt. Lou" (my least favorite track), Mean Gene gettin' down with his bad self on "Tutti Frutti" (a surprisingly good track), JYD & Vicki Sue Robinson (yes, THAT Vicki Sue Robinson) gettin' the funk down on "Grab Them Cakes" (another good track), and "Hulk Hogan's Theme" (I should've known it was cheesy...after all, it was written by the cheesemeister of music, Jim Steinman [of Meat Loaf fame]). Jimmy Hart does a decent job on "Eat Your Heart Out, Rick Springfield" (keep in mind this was released when Springfield was mega-famous, not only for his music, but also for his role as Dr. Noah Drake on "General Hospital"). Hillbilly Jim does a decent country song on "Don't Go Messin' With A Country Boy". Nikolai Volkoff does a good job of singing "Cara Mia", but Volkoff, in character, becomes disgusted with the song and sings the Russian National Anthem, much to the chagrin of Vince McMahon and Mean Gene Okerlund. But I saved the best for last...if you ever "marked out" back in the 1980s when "Real American" played and you want to relive those days, then get this CD because that song is included here as well.Read more ›
