Dennis Rodman's CNN Meltdown Got Turned Into an NWO Wrestling Promo

Wednesday January 8th, 2014


Suffice to say, Dennis Rodman's latest trip to North Korea -- this time with a group of fellow former NBA players, who participated in an exhibition -- has caused a bit of an uproar. Throughout the trip it seems that every new Rodman appearance has been more surreal than the last -- with his uncomfortable "Happy Birthday" serenade for Kim Jong Un standing out in particular.

In the latest contribution to what has been a bizarre story, we have Rodman's odd rant on CNN spliced into the format of an old WCW/NWO wrestling promo (video above). As you can see from one of the original NWO promo clips below, it's essentially perfect. Rodman actually wrestled wearing the NWO colors with Hulk Hogan at a WCW pay-per-view event in 1997, which turned out to be one of the more normal things he's ever done.
