Who ever said nothing happens in Delaware?
If World Wrestling Federation legend King Kong Bundy were a stand-up comedian, what would he joke about?The time he interfered in a match between former cohort Big John Studd (R.I.P.) and Andre the Giant (again, R.I.P.) in Toronto on Aug. 18, 1985, and broke the Giant’s sternum after leveling countless Bundy Splashes on the big man? Or how it itches to wear those huge man leotards with the shoulder straps? Or what it’s like to pull on Hulk Hogan’s skullette? Well, Bundy is a comedian now, and fellow funnyman Jeff Collins says the dude is pretty good.
Bundy will host the “Heavyweights of Comedy”…
I’ve heard that in person, Bundy is a legitimately nice guy. I guess you have to have a sense of humor to squash two midgets.
Of course, as a kid, I was scared to death of Bundy. I remember my mother taking me to a live closed-circuit showing of WrestleMania 2 and thinking Hogan (BTW, today is the 24th anniversary of Hulkamania) would not make it out of the cage alive.
Sadly, Bundy didn’t go over the top of the cage, nor did he get a five-count. After that match, his career didn’t reach those heights again, and I’m guessing he’s now retired.
Thinking about it, I would pay to see him do standup.
But, “Heavyweights of Comedy?” Come on, who are the ad wizards who came up with that one?
