I am proper gutted at this, when I was around 9-10, I used to watch a lot of wrestling (still do today), and Earthquake was by and large my favourite. I was never one to succumb to the popular vote of Hulk Hogan or the Ultimate Warrior (despite all the kids at school calling me “gay” for liking “the fat man”, they weren’t laughing when Earthquake dicked on Hulk Hogan at Summerslam 1991), I liked the baddies, and Earthquake was my favourite. I just thought he seemed like he could kick your ass any day of the week. His finishing move – where he sat on the opponent – always made me laugh out loud. Especially when he did it to Jake “The Snake” Roberts’ snake, I hated snakes.
Anyway, R.I.P. Earthquake, may you sit on all the dead wrestlers up in the ring in heaven.
