We Enjoy These Guys: The Can-Am Connection
Did you enjoy these guys?
What do you get when you combine 1-part Canadian Rick Martel and 1-part American Tom Zenk? You get a parody called the Cam-Am Connection.
The Can-Am Connection had been formed by Martel in the Montreal International Wrestling Association in 1986. Tom Zenk was the boyfriend of Martel's sister-in-law, and had been introduced to Martel in the AWA by Curt Hennig. It's all about family in 1980's WWF Tag Teams. The team made their WWF in-ring debut on October 23, 1986 against the team of Steve Lombardi (later the Brooklyn Brawler) and Moondog Spot which they won. Moondog Spot, I think I gave one of those to my ex-girlfriend?
The Can Am Connection contested a series of matches with former tag-team champions The Dream Team (Brutus Beefcake and Greg Valentine), the team of Kamala and Sika, and the team of Magnificent Moraco and "Ace" Cowboy Bob Orton, whom they would face and defeat at WrestleMania III.
If you like a lil' Rick "The Model" Martel, go visit his site that probably has been sedentary since 1997.
If you like a lil' Tom Zenk, we have that as well.
Good Jesus Jiffy Pop, I enoy these guys.
