It Came From YouTube: The Twin Towers invade The Arsenio Hall Show!

The Twin Towers (Akeem and The Big Bossman) appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show and they even brought Slick along with them!

Arsenio always loved having wrestlers on his show.

He was a big fan who wasn’t ashamed of it, and it looks like he’s having a blast here!

    Words can not describe the awesomeness of that clip. Slick is amazing verbally sparring with Arsenio. Akeem seems like he is genuinely having a blast and Bossman never breaks keyfabe. This clip is so legendary that I believe the footage should be saved for its historical and cultural significance.

    Is it just me or does the guy Bossman is beating up look like Arsenio?

    Man… Big Boss Man in this era would work up a sweat just, well, just walking onto the Arsenio Hall set. No wonder he eventually switched to black.

    Hard to believe that even 20 years ago, kayfabe or not, that Big Bossman could call Arsenio “boy.” That’s surprising to me.

    Hilarious clip…man Akeem was such a bad gimmick.

      Thing is, he always said “boy”. I don’t see why it should be a big deal when he said it constantly to people of any race/color with that gimmick.

      I guess the rappers back in the day should have started calling each other boy, yet got mad when others called them that, and maybe that “other word” wouldn’t be tossed around as much today.

    I love the fact that everyone in this video takes it seriously. There’s no goofing around or being “ironic” (gosh, I hate that word)- it’s just how it was supposed to be. Suspension od disbelief, how we miss thee…
