PWInsider linked to this article about an Indian film called Singh Is Kinng. It repeatedly states that the dudes pictured in the article are "WWE wrestlers from Australia". They are quite plainly not, but the thing I found particularly amusing was this:


    Akshay sure has a special interest in WWE. A few years back, he had fought against famous the WWE wrestler 'The Undertaker' for a fight sequence in Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi.

I figure I would have heard something about Taker acting in Bollywood. I looked up Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi on Wikipedia. The guy he worked with? Brian Lee. Technically not a lie!

Were either Brian Lee or Brian Adams with the WWF/E in 1996? That's when this movie was released.

There's a pretty funny video of a wrestling match between Crush and the Imposter Undertaker right here (youtube.com) which is really fun to watch. They filmed it in Toronto, interestingly enough.

Ok, words cannot describe how awesome that clip was, but I will attempt:

  • THE SOUND EFFECTS. Crush's INCREDIBLE dubbed-in screams of unending torment every time Taker does ANYTHING at all. The weird-ass screaming eagle noises. And the fake punching noise! Did you notice how, even when Taker grabbed Crush to pick him up, there was a punch noise on contact? So cool.

  • I forgot how well Brian Lee pulled off the Taker look, especially in the face.

  • Crush utterly no-sells the Tombstone. Of course, he can't no-sell a broken neck...

  • You sure that was actually Toronto? It kinda looked like a backdrop with the CN Tower on it...

  • I need one of those teeny-tiny rings in my living room.


I'm entirely sure I'm going to watch this many more times.

I have a new favorite "big man" match.

And, yeah, CN Tower is in Toronto.

Wow Oliver, Great find.

Taker wins the match. A gimmick match nonetheless. You don't know it until then end, but it was a Casket Match!

Loved the kung Fu sound effects.

As far as the picture of the Australian wrestlers go. I don't recognize them at all.

From left to right (help me out here).

1. I dunno
2. I dunno
3. I dunno
4. I dunno
5. I dunno
6. Jim Neidhart or the dad from O.C. Choppers with an even crazier goatee.
7. I dunno
8. Taker or Bryan Adams.

I'm sure lots of wrestlers have come from Australia, but the only two I can think of are Outback Jack and Nathan Jones. Perhaps he's one of them?

http://www.obsessedwithwrestling.com/profiles/australian.php has a list of Australian wrestlers. I'm familiar with basically none of them.

I only recognised the obvious 3 Aussie guys myself.

I caught old episodes of International Gladiators over the weekend with Mike Adamle as the US announcer, and they say you improve with time ?

Now as GM ?, scary !

Am I the only one missing The Fabulous Kangaroos, and former LPWA Champion "Superstar" Sue Sexton on that list?

Wouldn't surprise me if it was just a backdrop. Bollywood movies back then were nowhere near the production quality of what they are today.

Good point by the Sham. In Dawn's case if another woman were to cause trouble, she'd send the FBI, which would then cause the other woman's guy to rush over and help out.
