so, i'm a wrestling fan. after doing a bit of digging recently, i found out that david arquette made a brief stint as a pro wreslter in the year 2000.

most people here know david arquette as the voice of eddie in ssx tricky. with that time frame, his pro wrestling stint must have ended shortly before he did the voice work for tricky, which released in 2001.

guess what his entrance music and theme song for wrestling was?



bif naked, also known for being the voice of zoe in tricky and 3. so, these two were likely at the very least aware of each other and tangentially connected before the game.

to make things even more interesting and connected to wrestling, guess who else is a voice actor in the original ssx

*legendary* wrestling interviewer and announcer gene okerlund

who can be heard as the SSX announcer in this video



as far as i can tell, he only announces for the merqury city meltdown course

he also did voice work for ea sports big's sledstorm in 2002

i found all of this pretty interesting, as ssx and wrestling are a couple of my top passions. seems as if they both go way back together. i couldn't find anything else noteworthy on this though.

hopefully anyone else finds this at least curious and worth reading!

David Arquette, a non-wrestler, suddenly winning the top WCW title in 2000 has been cited by wrestling commentators as being pivotal to the degradation of the title and the ultimate demise of WCW as a company.

welp

Luther also happens to sound exactly like his character Jimmy King from Ready to Rumble.

I'm too lazy to find a clip of Luther speaking, but they sound exactly alike.
