A petition has been launched with the aim of getting a 75-year-old WWE Hall Of Famer as an entrant in the upcoming Royal Rumble!
Having one of the most memorable moments in any Rumble, the clip of Bushwhacker Luke’s four-second entry in the 1991 Royal Rumble is shown in plenty of highlights packages every year. It may no longer be the shortest entry in history, however the way he carried on Bushwhacking all the way backstage afterwards is unparalleled.
It would now appear that the WWE Hall Of Famer would like to give the Rumble another go – even at the age of 75.
A petition started by John Crowther who co-wrote the memoir The Bushwhackers: Blood, Sweat & Cheers is looking to make it a reality. With the first target of 1,000 signees, within the first two days the petition has already reached three quarters of that goal.
The description for the petition is as follows:
Bushwhacker Luke, one-half of the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame tag team, The Bushwhackers, has recently stated that he would love to return for one last go in the WWE as an entrant in the 2023 Royal Rumble on January 28, 2023, at the San Antonio, Texas Alamodome.
As you may know, one of Bushwhacker Luke’s most memorable Royal Rumble appearances was in the 1991 Royal Rumble, when he famously marched to the ring and was eliminated by Earthquake John Tenta in four seconds. Now, at the age of 75, he’s ready to return!
So, please sign the petition and urge the WWE to bring back Bushwhacker Luke for one last ride at the 2023 Royal Rumble!!! Wooaahh Yeeaahh!!
The upcoming Royal Rumble emanates from The Alamodome in Houston, Texas on 28th January 2023.
