WRESTLER OF THE DAY (Series 2) - MENG/HAKU


RIPPA
 Share

Recommended Posts

I have done Christmas and Star Wars gimmicks before and don't really have a burning desire at the moment to revisit that.

 

Of course - Dec. 18 is a big birthday... day 

 

So of course I WANTED to pick Sputnik Monroe because fuck you Sputnik Monroe is awesome but the footage is lacking.

 

And while I like Steve Austin and Trish Stratus, I feel like I need to keep them free for potential theme weeks so fuck it - Meng it is.

 

WAR BITCHES~!

This thread needs some squash matches.

 

Dungeon of Doom / Society To End Hulkamania era Meng vs. Adrian Byrd who deserves to have his ass beat for wearing tassels to the ring.

 

 

Faces of Fear era Meng vs Hard Body Mike Tolbert

 

 

Haku in his Huge Tongan Afro phase vs. Rory "Whiy Did I Sign This Contract?" Fox

 

 

King Haku vs. Bob Emory

"If I had a gun and was sitting inside a tank with one shell left and Meng is 300 yards away, he's mine, right? Well the first thing I'm going to do is jump out of the tank and shoot myself because I don't want to wound that son of a bitch and have him pissed off at me." - Jake Roberts

 

Also, according to Bobby Heenan, there were only 2 men that Andre The Giant legitimately feared. Harley Race and Haku. 

 

There's a ton of good stories about Haku here:

This match makes me sad because it's such an anticlimactic end to Harley's WWF run.  If only it had happened, say, five or six years earlier in AJPW, it could've been so much more violent.

 

Harley said in his book that he picked his own successor for the King of the Ring. I wonder how that conversation went down. "Okay Vince, here's what we're gonna do..." *cracks knuckles* I mean seriously, if Harley is saying him and Tonga are gonna have a match that headlines your PPV, are you gonna argue with them?
