W.T.F. Wednesday: The Sub-Crusher!

In this weeks' installment from the archives of The War That Time Forgot we get to see some moves from The Sub-Crusher, a giant spiky dinosaur and three-time World Wrestling Federation champ whose ring is the waters surrounding a prehistoric Monster Island.

His opponent? Any pencil-necked sub and ship that dares to call the champ out, and they're going down! After some naval gazers come across a submarine that's been crunched and tossed aside like an empty beer can, a couple of ships are sent out to find out what secret weapon is responsible for the damage. You want to know what's responsible? These 40-inch pythons, baby, that's who!

(Gee, I almost feel sorry for the challengers and their little patrol boat ... I hope it's not too late ...)

Oooh! Man, they'd just better hope The Crusher shows some sweet mercy and lets them go.

Snap into a Slim-Jim!

Next week: Giant coconuts.
