It Came From YouTube: WWF SummerSlam 1993 live hotline call gets awkward

3 Submitted by on Wed, 31 July 2013, 00:00

Presenting a very uncomfortable moment from SummerSlam 1993 showing what happens when a fan calls the SummerSlam Hotline and gets the “privilege” of being put live over the air to ask a wrestler a question.

So, the lucky caller decides to ask The Undertaker what he thinks of Jake “The Snake” Roberts turning on him, and what he thinks of Hulk Hogan now and if he’ll ever form a tag team with him.

Unfortunately, Hulk had just left the WWF a few months earlier and was on his way to WCW, and Jake had been gone from the WWF for some time, so these weren’t exactly the kind of questions the WWF wanted their wrestlers to be answering at the time…

Awkward!

So, now you know why they don’t do things like this anymore.

    I absolutely love how Vince and Bobby cut off the answer right in the middle of the response, and take us back to action almost immediately. Clearly, this question wasn’t what Vince and company had planned for! They were muttering such incoherent stuff! Bobby: “Some idiot doesn’t know how to use a telephone”! LOL Classy!

    Even as an 8 year old mark watching live, I was thinking “odd question to ask” when I heard Jake Roberts’ name. He had been gone from TV for long enough that it felt weird to use his name on T.V.

    What a great screen capture. On a set covered with American flags, you’ve got a Canadian wrestler, a Canadian interviewer, and an overdressed undertaker holding a telephone.
