It Came From YouTube: Slick teaches Kamala to bowl (and brings Lord Alfred along)

Lord Alfred Hayes (!) joins Reverend Slick (!!) as he teaches Kamala how to bowl (!!!!!!!).

Can you imagine how much fun it would be to spend the day bowling with these three? Chowing down on pizza and emptying a few pints of beer…

I’m surprised they let Kamala onto the lanes without bowling shoes.

    You can’t have a WWF/E comedy segment without his Lordship

    Maybe we can anticipate a bowling tournament before the Saturday Night’s Meme Event? I can’t believe they missed the chance of Slick of not trying to get bowling shoes on Kamala. With the way Kamala was fondling the ball I was hoping he would start doing the same to Alfred’s head.

    Isn’t this a remake of a vignette from the 80s?

  4. The Scanian Maniac says:

    What was the reasoning behind turning Kamala face in the early 90s, making him soft/weak, afraid of the Undertaker and bullied by Kim Chee and Harvey Whippleman and “humanizing” him by vignettes like this?

    I think it killed the character?

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Yeah, I don’t know what they were thinking either.

      • The Scanian Maniac says:

        I read an article long ago, where Jim Harris (Kamala) said that the reason why he was brought back to the WWE in the early 90s, was because of the action figures the WWE were selling, and that Vince McMahon thought it was cheaper paying him salary as an employee, rather than the royalties from the action figures?

        Can that (i.e. they really had no wholehearted or serious plans for the Kamala character), be the reason to why they did this?

        • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

          That doesn’t make sense because they wouldn’t have produced the action figure before he was signed to the roster.

          • The Scanian Maniac says:

            As I understand, it was the action figures that was produced when he teamed with Sika and was managed by King Curtis “The Wizard” in the late 80’s WWE, where he wrestled Hulk Hogan at The Saturday Night’s Main Event?

    Strange ideas for wrestlers that may not get over. Glad that’s over.

    As silly as this was, I don’t believe there was ever a wrestling bowler (or is that a bowling wrestler?). Yes guys like Al Snow used bowling bowls here and there but considering how many of the sports wrestlers were heels/heelish, Abe “Knuckleball” Schwartz, The Goon, Hole in One Barry Darsow to name a few, it makes me wonder how a heel wrestler with a bowling gimmick would have fared. He’d have a tailor made finished already called the 7-10 split.

    I don’t know why but my first thought of who I believe would have made a compelling bowling wrestler is George Grey. Surely he couldn’t have been worse off transforming from a Tough Biker to an Evil Bowler instead of the African Dream? He could have kept those funky dance moves AND Slick could have still been his manager since we now know he liked to bowl.

    Oh, what could have been?

    Collector’s Edition Kamala, the Ugandan Giant bowling balls – License To Print Money!!!

  8. Mav says:

    Good call about George Grey. I could see that, too.

    I always had a hard time figuring out why the WWF turned the One Man Gang into Akeem. OMG might have been kind of blah, but Akeem was absurd, even by 80s standards.

    • Preparation Triple H says:

      I think I read in the first WrestleCrap book that Akeem “the African Dream” was a parody of “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.
