Watch Old WWE Wrestlers Take a Zumba Class

Have you ever wanted to watch ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan, ‘Mean’ Gene Oakerlund and other 80s wrestling greats awkwardly strut their stuff during a Zumba class? Of course you haven’t, but chances are, you’ll want to watch them do it anyway.

TMZ claims the old-school grapplers, as well as personalities Jimmy ‘Mouth of the South’ Hart and Howard Finkel, are training for a secret new reality TV show. “SummerShimSham?”

It’s currently unknown if a steel cage or Singapore cane will be involved, but we’re crossing our fingers. The show will air in “parts unknown.”

We’ve never taken a Zumba class, so for all we know, Hacksaw and the other rasslers could have been doing it all correctly. We emailed professional Zumba Instructor Angela Vetri, requested she watch the video, and give us her professional opinion on the gang’s performance.

“The guy in the blue shorts looks like he’s ‘Walking like an Egyptian,’ and the guy in all black was dancing the way I imagined Ronnie James Dio would dance. I don’t put anyone down for trying Zumba, so I’ll just say, it’s awesome that they were good sports. Men who take Zumba are either sorta creepy or really great sports that make the class more fun. I’m glad they’re the latter.”

Nah, they are probably just creepy old men.
