I would like to thank everyone who was able to make a donation for the purpose of obtaining new features for the forum. The donation goal was met rather quickly and we here at Kung Fu Fandom can not thank you enough for the support. The plan is once the new site is up and running, the focus will then turn to the forum on updating and adding these new features and we will continue to strive to make your time spent here on the forum as enjoyable as possible. _/|\_

All 3 of these are good, I haven't seen the "Montreal Screwjob" episode because I have no interest.

Looks like Dollar Store knockoffs...

They are, as these figures are pretty much re-purposed He-Man knockoffs. The guy who made the video I posted has a series of videos about knockoff toys - He-Man, but also TMNT, superheroes (especially Batman and Superman) or Transformers, have had numerous knockoffs that can be creative, stupid or just downright head-scratching.

There were a heap of these Mattel He-Man figure mould, Wrestling knock-offs in the U.K. Back back n the 90's. I had some scaled down versions of the one's @Secret Executioner posted, along with a ring, when I was a kid. There were dozens of lines, released under multiple names, with the same body moulds re-named/painted

This was the ring, the figures in the picture are another style of bootleg, released by German company Simba. Those used actual moulds from the official 90's Habros WWF action figures.
