Crossface Chickenwing Rhymes: 7 Hip-Hop Lines About Bob Backlund

By: 11.28.11  •  4 Comments

After both DMX and Sheek Louch referenced infamous Hall of Fame wrestler Bob Backlund during Ruff Ryders’ “World’s Greatest” comeback track, we were reminded the WWF Superstar-turned-wannabe-politician had actually been referenced more than a few times in rhymes. So, as a treat for our scatterbrained audience, we’ve taken the liberty of compiling quotables from some of Hip-Hop’s elite, speaking on none other than the king of the Crossface Chickenwing himself.

Hopefully you find the odd combination amusing enough to deflect the fact that most wrestling diehards here probably hated this crazy sumbitch back when he boring his way to glory in the ’80s and ’90s.
