Honky Tonk Man's New Look & WCW Rings Re-Emerge: Ten Things You May Have Missed In Wrestling This Week

I had a really funny joke written for this part but Peacock removed it...

9. The Honk Abides

For a time, you couldn't load up your YouTube homepage without being recommended a video of the Honky Tonk Man shooting on someone or something. 

After his wrestling days were done, the WWE Hall of Famer became one of the more entertaining and colourful personalities on the shoot interview scene. 

It looks like those days may be over, however, because as well as selling off all of his old gear on Ebay, Wayne Ferris has now grown out his hair and has a huge grey beard. If that's not the look of a man settling into retirement, I don't know what is. 

I'm not the first person to remark that the greatest Intercontinental Champion in history now resembles The Dude character (as portrayed by Jeff Bridges in the Coen Brothers' cult classic film The Big Lebowski), but he really, really does. 

So from now on I think we should all refer to him as The Honk

That or, uh, his Honkness or, uh, the Honker, or El Honkerino, if you're not into the whole brevity thing...
