King Kong Bundy, Polaroid, Mattel discussed on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast


I'm moving the the collectibles out of one side of the room and moving them to the side of the room where the TV and the couch and all the lounge stuff was an I'm moving the TV and the couch and the lounge stuff over to where all the figures are now. So literally everything in the room has to be moved. And at the moment, it's a disaster area. Thank God the studio is quarantined off because it's my one solace. Although like to the left of me right now is the Mattel ring that they made their the Monday night raw wing ring that lights up and everything and on the right of me is the Mattel retro ring that looks like the old Hasbro ring, I mean, there's stuff everywhere. So hopefully over the next couple of weeks, I'll actually be able to get everything cleaned up and make this place livable again. That's the goal. We'll see if we get there. But in the meantime, I'm gonna live vicariously through you and all your beautiful clean, wonderful places of business and leisure and living gay, and that's all we're trying to do. Speaking of wrestling figures. You know, I got all my wrestling figures on display what not all of them not nearly all of them, but many of them, and I'm going through all my old figures and cleaning them up, and I'm recollecting stuff, and it's really getting absurd. But the reason I'm doing all that is because I was inspired by. Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder and their podcast the major wrestling figure podcast I've been at war with them. It's been no secret for the last couple of months, some of you have been enjoying it. So if you have been suffering through it, some of you have been indifferent. But I'm happy to announce that the beef is indeed over I did the intro for their podcast last week. I'm sure they'll talk about it this week. But the beef that was it was pretty brutal. You know, the shots that were going back and forth. Not only on our podcast, but on social media. It was a lot quite frankly, it was exhausting. I'm glad to be done with the bitter, bitter rivalry, and it all culminated at a live event on Caroline's on Broadway. We were able to squash the beef, and we were able to move forward as friends at that great live show. I appreciate any and all of you that turned up to Caroline's last week to watch that show live. It really wasn't amazing thing to be a part of. And I was getting booed out of the building. But I know that a lot of you. Were there? You know, how I know that because I taught you all you got gotta boo the bad guy. And in that moment, I wasn't he'd the villain. And I think I did earn my booze and came out of it on top. And I appreciate I appreciate everything. And I wanted to share some of that with you today. Now, there's a couple of things I want to share with you today. I'm going to share with you. I'm going to share with you the live event that was the plan going in. But you know, we lost a couple of people this week. First of all, we lost King Kong Bundy, and that's a real shame. You know, I never interviewed King Kong Bundy, but I did meet him as a little kid somewhere. I've got a polaroid of me when I was probably like twelve I look like I'm about eight, but I've got a degeneration next suck at t shirt on. And I'm an independent show. It was in new Rochelle New York. I believe in, you know, a high school gym somewhere and King Kong Bundy was on the show and they were offering entering photo ops for however, much they were Polaroid's. I gotta find the polaroid is the thing. But I never forget that moment because not only that I get a picture with king gung Bundy, and he wrapped his hands around my neck, and it was the coolest thing in the world because this wasn't that far removed..

Coming up next
