The Legend From WWE, Ric Flair, Got a Life-Sized Bronze Statue In His Dedication, Hilariously Looks Nothing Like Him

The similarities are so glaringly lacking it's almost impressive. What exactly were they aiming for? Putting together and carving the worst possible assemblage of a man that quite literally defined WWE's time? Then mission not failed, and accomplished.

Maybe it's the brutal winds or the fact that my car is one solid block of ice I'm going to have to deal with on Saturday, but there's something about this video just makes me happy. 

There's really not that much to it. A man dressed as Macho Man Randy Savage jumps off his roof into the snow. He doesn't even really do a good impression — though he has that Macho Man entrance walk down. But there's something about his enthusiasm and willingness to jump in the snow without a shirt on that I find endearing. Oh, well, back to the waking nightmare that is my life.

On his podcast the other day, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, the only professional wrestler to have delivered the stunner to a president, devluged the secret behind his finishing move, the "Stone Cold Stunner."

This came after WWE Universal champion Kevin Owen performed a stunner in his Royal Rumble match with Roman Reigns. Of course, Owens asked for permission to use the movie, however, Stone Cold took issue with how it was performed.

What follows is a breakdown of the move:

  1. The Kick
    • “Sometimes when you get into your oxygen reserves, what happens? You start to lose your thought process. You can’t perform up to your utmost ability. The beauty is when you kick the guy in the gut, right in the diaphragm, boom! You sap his lung of all the oxygen. All of a sudden, his brain’s like, ‘Ugh… I need to breathe! I’m about halfway blown up! This is deep in the match, I need oxygen.’”

  2. Lock the head:
    • “Right underneath the jaw you’ve got two holes on eiach side of your jaw, the foramen nerves. That’s where people get knocked out. So when you grab that head, put it on top of your collarbone, the AC (acromioclavicular) region, your trapezoid, you’re locking that jaw down.”

  3. Impact
    • “Let’s say someone (who’s) 250 pounds hits you with an uppercut. Now let’s take double body weight, 500 pounds, give or take, hitting you with an uppercut—that’s both men’s weights coming down on that shoulder. You hit your ass on the mat, the mat springs you back up, giving that energy a direct path—your vertebrae, your back— through your shoulders to his damn jawbone, wham! Lights out. That’s how scientific it is.”

Those are the key ingredients to a perfect stunner. But even when it's not perfect, it's pretty awesome:

Look, I've only ever been knocked out once in my life, and it was by a sumo wrestler, so I know exactly what this dude is going through.

After taking a shot from a sumo you go through five stages:

  1. Denial — There's no way I just got knocked out by a sumo
  2. Anger — When I get up, he's donzo
  3. Bargaining — Please, PLEASE, don't let me die here.
  4. Depression — It's hopeless. I'm going down. 
  5. Acceptance — This is my life now. I live on the floor.

Watching this sumo go through these stages is painful and hilarious. Enjoy it.

What do the The Rock, Tom Brady, and cameras on tripods have in common. They’re the recipe for one of the strangest YouTube videos around.

Let’s rundown what’s going on here:

  1. It opens with The Rock calling out Tom Brady for some reason. Deflate gate? Is that still a thing?
  2. They cut to Tom Brady telling the Rock that he’s sending him some new Tom Brady Underarmor
  3. The Rock tells us that he sleeps naked.
  4. The Rock refers to his penis as “peen-asaurus”
  5. The Rock plugs Baywatch.

Fin.

Is this an ad for Under Armor? Baywatch? The Rock’s brand? Somebody, help! Can any of 35,000 people that watched this thing help???
