Remember when the WWE was the WWF? Remember when professional wrestling was so cool you carried a Rowdy Roddy Piper Trapper Keeper in your duffel bag? Yep! It was so cool that even Andy Warhol himself bought into the hype.
In this vintage clip from 1985, the legendary artist is interviewed by the equally legendary Mean Gene Okerlund backstage at The War To Settle The Score! Andy is so thrilled, so excited, so beyond himself he nearly bursts into hysterics.
I hadn’t seen Andy this excited since he paid a pack of down-on-their-luck street hustlers to sit around, drink Mexican beer, and urinate on specially prepared canvases for what would ultimately become his ‘piss paintings’ (check out some of those after the jump).
