Oh, and Brad Maddox was there, too!
Old Man Nut Kicker made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight as a part of Jimmy’s “Suggestion Box” segment. When someone suggested The Undertaker tombstone a turkey, The Undertaker’s signature DONG hit, and former RAW General Manager Brad Maddox was conveniently dressed as the Gobbledy Gooker.
I loved this skit so much. I know people are going to complain about kayfabe being broken, and nonsense like that, but this is old school wrestling. The Ultimate Warrior appearing on Arsenio Hall is one of the all-time great wrestling in pop culture videos, and possibly the most unappreciated. The Undertaker tombstoning Brad Maddox in a turkey costume just reminded me how much wrestler’s appearances can be.
P.S. How much of a savage move is it for the WWE twitter account to call Brad Maddox “a guy dressed as a Thanksgiving turkey”?
