BIG BALLER SQUAD STAND UP!!! I wasn’t watching wrestling the first time Hulk Hogan came out to “Real American” or the moment Steve Austin officially became Stone Cold. But I know exactly where I was on June 26th 2017. I was watching LaVar Ball waddle down not only into the ring but also into the hearts of a whole new demographic as he became the next great WWE superstar while also pushing merch in a move that can only be described as Portnoyian.
As a fan of The Challenge, I know that The Miz is usually the most electric man in the squared circle. But tonight LaVar took that title home no ifs, ands, or maybes while also letting the world know he is bringing a few new people into the Big Baller Zone. The NBA Award show had just tipped off and the Big 3 tape delay was already an hour in. But all the entire world could talk about was LaVar Ball and his sons taking over yet another sport. The American dream is playing out in front of our eyes and it is fucking beautiful.
Whose got it better than the Balls right now? Nooooooobody. Well actually LiAngelo may have a problem with that phrase. But LaVar, Lonzo and LaMelo are having a fucking BLAST. LaMelo may even have had a little too much fun.
That being said, I really wish the BBB crew came out to the Titantron video I made about 15 minutes before they came on screen.
Robbie Fox will obviously have a full Raw breakdown tomorrow and I imagine LaVar’s electric appearance may get touched on during Robbie’s new From The Top Rope podcast.
