Video of the Day: Pee-wee Herman, Professional Wrestler


Now that he’s back on Broadway, Pee-wee Herman has been absolutely ubiquitous — greeting fans on the streets of New York, robbing the M&Ms store with Regis Philbin, and appearing on the cover of Paper magazine. Still, we never expected him to pop up on WWE Raw. Yet that’s exactly what he recently did, opening the evening by announcing that the night’s secret word was “ring.” Then, he was confronted by MTV Real World/Road Rules Challenge veteran, The Miz, who dresses in a T-shirt and underpants, thus alleviating our fears that any Pee-wee-related homoeroticism would be out of place in the professional wrestling world.
