FARTS: The Unfortunate Byproduct of Taking Bumps in the Ring
‘Victory Rolls & Fire in the Holes’
Professional wrestling is a sport which requires a lot of squatting and bending over. On top of that, supplements and protein powder. It’s only natural a bit of free speech or back-end blowouts occur from time to time! Here are two stories that will open your eyes (or nose) to one of the byproducts of taking bumps in the ring.
“Bret Hart Farted in My Face” – BAM BAM BIGELOW Shares a Breezy Memory from King of the Ring 1993
“It was one of the best matches in my career, you know? Right up there, I think actually better than the Barry Wyndham match. I think even today people rate that as…Bret’s just such talent, you know? He’s a great guy. Me and Bret got along very, very well. We were very good friends, and we still are. We communicated really well. His style of wrestling complimented mine and my style complimented his, you know? He just liked to sell. Get some heat and he would like them big long comebacks and that’s what I used to like. Our chemistry was perfect together. Me and Bret always had good matches together. Always.
[When we were wrestling], it’s not like we were going to be running and doing a lot of spots, because that’s not my thing, you know? I move a lot more than most of the big guys, but it was easier for Bret, because like I said, he would sell. So I’d be able to pound the shit out of him, he’d make a little comeback, he’d get a little bit tired and I’d just pick him up and smash him and then grab a hold and just let him get some air because I knew he was tired.
It went on, twenty-something minutes. I still remember the finish, man. A little roll-up, a little victory roll, man, you know? I think when he did that, he farted right in my face, too! And I was like, ‘You son of a bitch!’
He went up, did a victory roll, I’m under and ::fart noise:: I was like, “Oh, BRET!”
You know, taking all that protein powder. Oh, he killed me, man! Oh God! Even [the ref] was dying going down for the pin. He was holding his nose! It was hysterical, man.
Bret, I loved Bret, man. He was just one of my best buds in the business.”
