“[He] called me a ‘rapist’ and a ‘recluse.’ I’m not a recluse.” June 15, 2007Posted by skribbel24 in Divas.
Well that’s just one of Mike Tyson’s famous quotes.
So I was finally able to track down an Iron Mike figure from the Rocky line, for the following reasons: 1) I’ve been wanting a ring gear Mike Tyson since these Rocky figures came out, 2) I want to try doing a DX Tyson custom with the right head, 3) I cloth accessories would look sweet on a Deluxe Vince McMahon, and 4) I just thought the figure was awesome. My only grip: he could have come with removeable gloves, so you can have a suited Mike and a boxing Mike.
Here’s my favorite Tyson moment during the Attitude era. Stone Cold Steve Austin interrupted Vince McMahon in his presentation of a special appearance by Tyson over the objection of McMahon referring to Tyson as “the baddest man on the planet”, with Austin attacking Tyson and the two needing to be separated, much to McMahon’s embarrassment, who began to publicly disapprove of the prospect of Austin as his champion. Tyson would later be announced to be “the special enforcer” for the main event at WrestleMania XIV. The video can be found here.
Man, what a great time it was to be a wrestling fan back then.
