Staff Picks (June14): Slam City — Finished
Jun 15, 2014
Based on the toyline-turned-cartoon, Slam City: Finished expands on the events of the claymation shorts that pose the question: "What would superstars do if they weren't wrestlers?"
When the nefarious Finisher (a masked villain who has taken over Vince McMahon's office) starts firing superstars, they must venture out into the city to find new jobs. Now John Cena gives "attitude adjustments" to cars, Kane uses hi hellfire to reheat cafeteria food, and Rey Mysterio 619's anyone who doesn't regard his crossing guard sign.
What will make this series enjoyable for WWE fans of any age is its inability to take itself seriously. Bonus: see if you can find the Spaceballs reference.
