    Kitty makes Red go with Eric and his friends to a wrestling match, in order for him and Eric to bond. Bob goes and tries to get advice from Fez and Hyde about what to do with his marriage to Midge. Jackie has been really nice and willing to do whatever Kelso wants ever since they lose their virginity.



    Good episode, it was nice to see Red actually have a good time with Eric, a side of him we do not see. Fez and Hyde trying to get beer was funny, as was Bob actually buying them beer near the end, just so they would talk to him. Overall decent episode, I would say, my final grade would be a B+moreless

  • Red takes the gang, plus Bob, to a wrestling match in Kanoshia. Meanwhile, Donna tries to convince Jackie that she is not Kelso's love slave after they had sex.

    So Kelso announces to the guys that he was the first of the four to officially become a man. And now, there's better news. Jackie will do whatever it takes to make sure he doesn't get bored! Meanwhile, Kitty convinces Red to go with Eric and the gang to see Rocky Johnson and others fight in a wrestling match in Kanoshia. (Red and Eric were previously having some problems with Eric's 'smart mouth') So anyways, Bob comes along becomes he would otherwise be alone in the house since Midge is taking therapy. And the whole gang has an adventure at the wrestling match. Red and Eric bond with each other. Donna convinces Jackie that she's in charge (ugh) in the relationship between her and Kelso, so she's NOBODY's slave. Hyde and Fez are trying to get beers on their own, while Bob wants to talk with them. Hyde and Fez say that they'll only talk if he gets him some beers, which he eventually does, and the three have a nice talk. So they all have a great time, Eric, or should I say, Red, gets an autograph from Rocky Johnson. (The Rock) It was a great episode, and it's good to see Red and Eric getting along together, at least, in my opinion.moreless
  • Series Classic.

    9.7
    Awesome, awesome episode. One of the best in That 70's Show history, it is that simple. You just cannot stop laughing during this episode, no matter how hard you tried.



    From the great cameos by The Rock, Ken Shamrock and the Hardy Boys to Bob, to Eric and Red wrestling, this is one of the episodes that really helped shape the show we all know and love. Season 1 may not get the appreciation it deserves, but it was without a doubt one of the top years in comedy history, comparable to the early years of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm.moreless
  • Red & Eric bond!

    10
    This episode was so great, first of all, the 2 plots are very common in the 70s, Pervert therapists, and wrestling, and a guy buying beer for minors. An amazing episode in my opinion, first of all cause Red & Eric bond for the first time, second of all Laurie comes back! And you get to hear Kitty's real thought, and Midge gets chased by a fake therapists, I found that pretty creepy especially in the end, when it turns out she is with another fake therapist. Anyways also a lot of midgets in this episode, That 70s Show satisfies again in this hilarious episode!moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The music used in this episode was:
      Iron Man (1971) by Black Sabbath;
      Rhinestone Cowboy (1975) by Glen Campbell;
      Kung Fu Fighting (1974) by Carl Douglas.

    • Red takes the whole gang to a World Wrestling Federation (WWF) match. In the 70's, the federation was called the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF).

      In the 1970's, professional wrestling was still divided into regional areas. The WWWF was located in the northeastern United States. There was another based in the mid-west, another in the south and there were probably others. It wasn't until the early 1980's when the WWWF's promoter Vince McMahon, broke the boundaries and took wrestling to a national level.

    • The Rock, playing father Rocky Johnson, uses the phrase "sports entertainment". However, that euphemism wasn't invented until the 1990s.
      Response: It was said on purpose, quoting a modern statement about 'The Rock' being the most electrifying figure in sports entertainment.

  • QUOTES (7)

  • NOTES (1)

    • While Donna has Eric in a headlock, Donna asks him why isn't he fighting back. Hyde says, "Why would he?" He then says, "look where his head is" (Eric's head was near Donna's breasts), but reran versions, syndicated versions and even the version on the Season 1 DVD cut that line out.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Red: Are you telling me 'no'? Is that what I'm hearing?
      Eric: ....Yeah.
      [Music plays.]

      The music that plays as Eric and Red try to stare each other down is the theme from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, a 1966 Western starring Clint Eastwood.

    • Rocky Johnson: You know, I got a kid too. One day he's gonna be the most electrifying man in sports entertainment!

      That "kid" is actually The Rock, the man who played Rocky Johnson. Rocky Johnson is his real life dad. Johnson is currently a trainer at Ohio Valley Wrestling in Louisville, KY.
