A few weeks ago, Vince and I had a segment on our podcast about a bizarre series of photos and videos featuring the Undertaker and Michelle McCool in a pool with a tiger at a tiger day spa? in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. At the time, we weren’t sure what the purpose of this was; they talked about tigers needing us to save them and if we don’t save the tiger we won’t rest in peace and if we save the tiger we can save the world. While they didn’t touch on HOW we save the tiger or explain why they were in a pool with the tiger, the video managed to make a minor splash across the internet with the “campaign” being called one of the purest things ever, and Undertaker being celebrated for showing his softer side.
Later that week, I tried to watch Netflix’s “Tiger King” series and this is when things started making more sense. One of the facilities featured in the series is none other than Myrtle Beach Safari, which is where the McCools climbed into a pool with a tiger and blessed the internet with their plea to save the tiger in order to save ourselves. The photos and videos were posted on Undertaker’s, Michelle’s, and Myrtle Beach Safari’s instagram pages just days before Tiger King premiered on Netflix.
Doc Antle, founder of Myrtle Beach Safari, whose doctor status is questionable – he claims to have earned a doctorate in medicine while he was studying in Asia (this is straight off Myrtle Beach Safari’s website) – is not a fan of Tiger King. More specifically, he’s upset over his portrayal in the series, stating that it’s sensationalized and inaccurate and paints him in a bad light. Considering his displeasure with the series, and the fact that the Undertaker tiger photos were posted right before the series premiered, was this an attempt from Doc Antle to get ahead of the series and prove that he truly cares about saving the tiger?
Vince and I started a wrestling-themed YouTube Channel called “Babyface Bullies”. !!
We upload a weekly video with either Vince or me in front of the camera, sometimes both of us. I edit the videos, Vince makes the thumbnail, and we work together to add in jokes, sounds, and anything else we want to include.
We’re just two fans looking to laugh over one of our favorite things: wrestling.
As of right now, all our videos are under 8 minutes long making it easy to watch when you have some free time. Give them a thumbs up, leave a comment, give us some feedback, tell us what you want to see!
Well, we did it. Boyfriend and I saved up for over 9 months and went to New Orleans this past weekend. But we didn’t just go to New Orleans. We went for the ultimate of wrestling events: Wrestlemania.
Now before you pass judgment on me for going to a city just to see half-naked men wrestle each other, let me remind you that it’s New Orleans. There would’ve been half-naked men wrestling each other even if WWE wasn’t in town.
Anyway, what can I say about this trip?! To sum it up in one word: amazeballs. Wait, no: drunkfest. Or maybe adventuretown? Gah. Okay, summing it up in one word is impossible, so I will ramble on about our adventure.
As you may or may not know, AKA in news you probably do not care about, Hulk Hogan returned to the WWE on Monday during Raw in Green Bay. Da “Frozen Tundra,” dontcha know?! Cheeseheads across the stadium freaked da shit out (but did not spill their beers) to see the Hulkster in all his glory.
(My partly-dead wrestler/lover, the Undertaker, also returned and I was insanely jelly of everyone in the audience, but this isn’t pertinent to the story. I just wanted to mention how awesome the Undertaker is.)
The following night, WWE was in Milwaukee to tape Smackdown, which is also a popular show the WWE has. Let me emphasize that this show is popular and people watch it. Why do I emphasize that? Because every time WWE comes to Milwaukee, the show is … uhh … suckish. It’s not totally sucky because some cool things happen sometimes, but also it’s nowhere near as good as shows in other cities.
OMG ya’ll – Total Divas returns in March! Raise yo hand if you can’t wait for these sassy sexcakes to return to your television screen.
(I’d raise my hand but it’s too difficult to type with just one hand.)
For those of you that didn’t raise your hand, hear me out. Don’t give me any BS about how you don’t like drama and you don’t want to support these “trashy” ladies by watching their show. Uhh do you watch any TV? It’s all drama, even the news (insert conspiracy theory here about how the media distorts the news for us laypeople). At least with the Divas, you’ll know what you’re watching is real. Well, besides their boobs and hair.
