Thank goodness for the speed at which the internet moves. Here we were, not hours from trying to determine the best possible celebrity opponent for Rusev at WrestleMania 34 when it seems a challenger has appeared. And a good challenger, at that!
If you need a recap, the Bulgarian Brute (and probably most popular Superstar in WWE right now not named “Braun Strowman”) Rusev has finally figured out the best way for anyone to get straight onto the WrestleMania card: find a celebrity to wrestle.
While some people (like Stephen Amell) are too terrified of the sometimes-nude Superstar to step into the ring with Rusev, there is at least one man who is a certified, legitimate mainstream celebrity … and one who seems SUPER EAGER to actually have a WrestleMania match against the guy. And on Rusev Day, no less!
Yes, we’re talking about none other than Macaulay Culkin.
The new podcast host and recent attendee of Bar Wrestling isn’t even afraid to call out Rusev’s hype man, Aiden English.
We’re all in on CulkaMania. Especially since Culkin has actual WWE experience, helping Hornswoggle defeat Chavo Guerrero via Home Alone tactics. (Yes, that Bar Wrestling stuff was already an existing Culkin highspot in wrestling canon.)
Let’s book this, WWE. It will at least go better than Mickey Rourke’s WrestleMania 25 … whatever that was.
