Magnum TA! is a current Superuniverse Top 10 character, based off of the mispronounciation of Magnum T.A. (Tee-Ay) as TA! (Taaah) by TGBL in 1989 when he was first introduced to Pro Wrestling Illustrated.
Magnum TA! was mentioned in the very first episode of the show during a conversation between TGBL and Bix regarding their first experiences with TBS wrestling. Brian stated that he started watching TBS in 1989, and after watching for a month, he would go to purchase some of the "Apter mags" at a local store on Long Beach, NY. After reading the different magazines, he would be exposed to many different wrestlers that he wasn't used to (since New York was primarily a WWF market), and he was puzzled when he came across Magnum T.A., asking the question "Who's Magnum TA?", pronouncing the T.A. as Taaah.
