If you aren’t familiar with the works of Virgil — the wrestler, not the guy who wrote the Aeneid — he was The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase’s manservant who parlayed that into a career of being sad at conventions and begging people for money on the Internet. In his latest attempt to get F*ck Money, Virgil stopped by The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore to discuss racism in pro wrestling, but mostly to teach Ricky Velez how to be the most racist wrestler of all-time. Tommy Dreamer’s there too for some reason, but he mostly just says ECW was great and brags about his sex life. It’s somehow slightly weirder than Virgil.
Anyway, the best part of the clip is seeing Velez actively trying to film a bit, and Virgil just being as prejudiced as possible throughout. At one point, he tells Velez to imagine him as a “big black burrito” as he rolls into the ring. When you pay for Virgil, you get Virgil, I guess. Tuesday night’s episode will feature the “epic conclusion” for the Minority Heavyweight Championship. Sure, let’s do it.
By the way, if you want the full version of that “Virgil fights the KKK” clip (which is absolutely real), you can watch that below.
