FIGHTER HAYABUSA, WCW MASTER MIFFED OVER DELETED SCENES FROM WRECK-IT RALPH
By Justin Henry
Burbank, CA – Disney’s latest animated offering, Wreck-It Ralph, is the story of a video game villain who dreams of finally becoming a hero. Several video game heroes and villains make appearances in a movie sure to please viewers of all ages.
That is except for 2 particular video game villains from the hard knocks world of professional wrestling.
Fighter Hayabusa of NES’ 1987 game “Pro Wrestling”, and the masked WCW Master from, what else, 1990’s “WCW Wrestling”, discovered that their scenes from the movie were removed from the final cut.
“I don’t deserve this kind of snub,” said Hayabusa, who now trains create-a-wrestlers at an animated New Japan dojo after an errant piranha bite ended his career. “I finally make my foray into acting and they take 2 weeks of my time to film me, and don’t even have the courtesy to let my work be seen? I haven’t been this insulted since Vince McMahon offered me a job as Saba Simba!”
The scenes, which will likely be restored as DVD extras, depict Ralph and partner Fix-It Felix wrestling Hayabusa and The Master.
“My scenes deleted by no good Disney,” said Master, whose French accent was muffled by a mask. “People who make Princess Bride very gracious to me, give me good money to be Fezzik’s stunt double. I even improvise with, ‘You are ex-champion, Ralph!’, and they tell me I do good job and will be star. Such disgraceful people. So I drink 120 beers and say to hell with them.”
A similar controversy emerged earlier this year, when Paul Roma’s scene from Project X, where he played “Man with Back Turned #6” was removed from the theatrical release.
