Sportscaster Uses 31 Pro Wrestling References During Highlights
Adam Lefkoe from WHAS in Louisville, KY decided to liven his sportscast for the Louisville Cardinals season opener this past weekend. How did he do it, you ask? Oh, just by dropping 31 pro wrestlers’ names during the highlights.
The long list includes wrestling greats such as: the Ultimate Warrior, Ric Flair, Koko B. Ware, Junkyard Dog, Iron Sheik, Honky Tonk Man, King Kong Bundy, Doink the Clown and Macho Man Randy Savage, just to name a few. Take a listen:
Apparently, Lefkoe has been listening to ESPN’s Robert Flores (an admitted rasslin’ fan), who also occasionally drops wrestling names into his sportscasts.
Pro wrestling isn’t as popular as it once was, but WWE has been gaining popularity as of late with its latest storyline. Daniel Bryan has become the most popular guy in the company and to set up storylines for months to come, Triple H (now the real-life C.O.O.) turned heel to cost Bryan the title shortly after he won it at Summerslam. Triple H and the other WWE brass have joined forces with new champion Randy Orton to form a modern day corporation (a la 1999). This is known as ‘stacking the deck’ against a superstar, in which they must run through multiple heels to get back to the top. It’s a great way to prolong Bryan’s journey and it makes his eventual recapturing of the title even sweeter.
