As I was watching Kimbo Slice virtually rip a guy’s ear off this weekend, it dawned on me that he has a striking resemblance to one of my all-time favorite wrestlers: The Junkyard dog.
They may not look exactly the same but come on. Kimbo moved his way up through internet backyard fighting. The guy fought anywhere, anytime in pretty strange conditions. It’s just a JYD vibe.
The Junkyard Dog’s real name was Sylvester Ritter. Unofrtunately Ritter passed away in 1998 (in a car crash, not steroids) but it would have been amazing if this guy came out and managed Kimbo Slice posing as his father.
I think the only fair thing to do would be to have Kimbo Slice start wearing a giant chain around his neck, a shirt immortalizing the JYD, and his new walk out song to be “Another One Bites the Dust.”
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
