This had already closed when I found the link. But it's still darn funny.

What's even funnier is that someone paid $150 to manage Kamala.

There are a couple of weird things about this. First off, doesn't standard practice dictate that the wrestling promotion pays the manager for his work, and not that the manager pays for the honor and privilege? I mean, yeah, managers are almost universally trained in wrestling to some degree, and they'd have to pay for that. But for jobs they do, they get paid by the promoter... unless something weird's been going on that I'm just now catching on to.

Secondly... the Ugandan Giant, Kamala, has struck fear into the eyes of Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and The Undertaker? Hahaha... you kidding? I can imagine a discussion backstage in the WCW booker meetings, where Hogan asks for a match against Kamala because Kamala's such a horrible wrestler that Hogan looks like Chris Benoit in comparison.

Thirdly, you have to provide your own transportation?

I still can't get over the fact that someone actually paid $150 for this.

On the plus side, I have saved the picture for my own personal amusement. Every time I need a good laugh, I'll open up this one. “THIS COULD BE YOU!” Sounds like a threat, if you ask me. LOL...

Not too much longer until we see this for Marcus Bagwell or the Road Dogg.



So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one---big hitter, the Lama---long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

I could see Bagwell's mom winning that one.

Winning the auction for Buffy, or for the Road Dogg?

Of all the disturbing moments Judy Bagwell's been a part of, managing the Road Dogg would have the potential to trump them all. (Especially if they had some kind of love triangle thing going).

I know, I know... I shouldn't give Vinnie Ru any ideas.

Yeah, but it might actually be a good time managing Kamala!

*Kamala* striking fear into *the Undertaker*? I seem to remember that during their feud in '92 or '93, Kamala crapped his loincloth whenever 'Taker did the zombie sit-up or tried anything casket-related.

Heck, we in the indies will do almost anything for money, including taking a mark's cash. There's a saying about how a fool and his money are soon parted...although some of the boys on that show will probably have issues with a non-trained "mark" around the ring during what in all likelihood will be the main event.

I mean, it'd be worth $150 to manage Disco Inferno...but Kamala? Oy vey.

I ALMOST put in a bid on this one. I figured hey, Milwaukee is a 75 min. drive for me with good traffic. I've trained a little so I know enough to get out of the way and not injure myself or anyone else. And how many of YOU can say you've managed Kamala?!

Having spent a week recently touring Alaska with Disco Inferno, you'd have to pay me $150 to even CONSIDER doing such a thing.

You know, not for $150, but maybe like $50, this would be worth it. Just for camp value.

Now, I'd pay $150 to take a racquet shot from Cornette, which I almost got to do on an indy show in MD.

FINALLY, a wrestling auction on ebay worth paying for. I'd paint the moon and stars on my chest and everything.

And to think, David Arquette won the "become WCW Champion for a week!" Ebay auction for only $250! If I had only caught that one before it closed....

I would pay $150 to manage Kamala the Ugandan Giant. It would be worth every penny to tell him to roll the opponent over the right way on the pin.

Yep, them's the two that I found. I'm thinking of cropping Funaki out of the bottom picture at the moment. UPDATE: Lickicat has PM'd me and directed me to Dawn Marie's site, which has several pictures of her and the Mack Daddy himself. Sorted.
