"Welcome to the mat!"
22 September 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Star Wars collides with the WWF (no, I didn't see it coming, either) and it's a blast. This is another one of those "Everybody gets something to do" episodes but Barry owns this one. You can imagine what you're getting into when he confuses high school wrestling with sports entertainment; it's just one face-palm after another.

Erica and Adam waiting in line for "Return of the Jedi": is mostly just sweet (except for Tom Lennon sealing his scenes astride a Tauntaun), but the rest of it makes excellent use of Goldbergian screaming, Barry's sick moves in the ring and crackling banter.

7/10
