Did any of you happen to see a 6-foot long iguana around the Spectrum or roaming the streets of South Philadelphia sometime back in the '80s? If you did, WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat would probably like to speak with you. Fellow WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan (HOOOOOOOOOOO!) was interviewed by Brian Haddad on WIP last night and shared yet another tale of Spectrum lore, this one about the time Steamboat lost his pet iguana somewhere in the arena and never saw it again. The building was a stronghold of the then-WWF during pro wrestling’s territory era of the 1970s and 80s and the organization would hold shows multiple times a year there during that time period. During last night’s interview, Duggan told Haddad that Steamboat let the iguana loose during one of the WWF’s stops at the Spectrum back in the day and never saw the lizard ever again. “Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat lost his iguana,” Duggan said. “He had a big, giant iguana that he used to carry and it got loose in the Spectrum and disappeared. So the big rumor in the old Philly Spectrum was that the thing grew to six feet long eating grass in the Spectrum.” Grass, spiders, rats, ticket stubs, decades-old stale popcorn – you name it and that runaway iguana probably ate it in the Spectrum. Despite the fact they each no longer exist, old-school WWF and the Spectrum are gifts that just keep on giving.
Eagles fans.... they're the worst.
Even famous ones like Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout can't keep their hands to themselves when their team is owning the opponent.
The talent that Joel Embiid possesses is frightening at times. The man shows off incredible skills on the basketball court and in a body that is gigantic.
Brett Brown called him "Shaquille with soccer feet."
But that doesn't mean he is skilled in all areas of life as well. Take singing for instance.
Someone captured the Instagram story that Joel shared of himself singing at karaoke over the weekend.
Rouuuuuuugh, Joel. Rough.
We're just glad Joel is letting off some steam before the lazer-focus of the season is needed. It all starts Wednesday against OKC.
*beware an F bomb or two*
