For those who are a fan of the show Tosh.0, you probably already know what I'm talking about. For those that aren't, Tosh.0 is a show on Comedy Central that shows different outrageous YouTube clips while stand-up comedian Daniel Tosh cracks jokes about the idiotic or nasty things that the people do.
This week, he had a web redemption for a crying wrestling fan.
For those who don't know what a web redemption is, it's where he gives the person or people who where in the video a chance to redeem themselves in the same situation that they messed up somehow.
The video was of some guy at a thing called "The Tribute To Starcade" in South Carolina. I'm not sure when the date was, but this guy was given the mic to ask the wrestlers a question and he just basically broke down into tears and said that he wanted to thank each an every one of them for what they did to they're bodies, before saying, "It's still real to me, damnit!"
Then it comes back to the show and the jokes start rolling. The first one I found very distasteful and not funny at all: "And if you think wrestling is fake, why don't you dig up Owen Hart and tell him."
Some other jokes were, "Wrastling is like Broadway for hillbillies. It's the third-favorite white trash pastime behind incest and NASCAR.
"Plus it's the one sport that allows people to roid their d***s off—the only time there’s a performance enhancement scandal is when there's not enough juice to go around (pic of Ric Flair comes up). Sorry, Natureboy. WHOOOOO!."
My favorite was, "I miss the good old days back when it was called the WWF and the World Wildlife Fund could go screw itself." But then it really starts to get funny: It cuts to a ring made to look like the WWE ring and it has the fan sitting in there and Daniel Tosh comes in dressed like the Ultimate Warrior, makeup and everything. He even acted like the Ultimate Warrior talking all crazy.
He then gives the fan a chance to redeem himself. They now cut to Tosh dressed up as Roddy Piper with the Pipers Pit background and then he gives "the crying wrestling fan" the mic. He then presents an award to Koko B. Ware, and surprisingly, the real Koko comes out to accept it with Frankie and all.
Next thing you know, you hear that iconic laugh which could be only one person, The Million Dollar Man.
He comes up and says that he should be getting the award and they start arguing back and forth before Dibiase says if he can't have it, no one can, before smashing it on the ground.
They both start brawling outside, then in the ring. Tosh jumps in dressed as Piper to interfere before getting clotheslined by Sgt. Slaughter.
Some other stuff went down that was just hilarious, but I'll let you check it out for yourselves. They are showing a rerun of the show this Wednesday, Feb. 16th at 10:30 ET on Comedy Central.
If you get a chance, check it out. It's a must-see for any wrestling fan.
