News from Slam City
May 14, 2014
A lot is happening these days in WWE Slam City… Alberto Del Rio is working as a Barista, Sheamus is an usher at a movie theater, and the “World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry is a dancing, singing, pizza slinging, penguin??
We’ve had such a blast collaborating with the good folks over at Mattel, including Director Matt Danner, we couldn’t wait to share a peek behind the scenes with you. Check out one of our favorite episodes below and a little Q & A with our resident Director and long time Buddy, Harry Chaskin!
Do you have a favorite episode of WWE Slam City?
H: I really like the Perk E. Pizza episode with Mark Henry. The more demeaning the day jobs, the funnier the episodes play, and putting a 400 lb former Olympic weightlifter in a penguin costume is about as good as it gets. Plus, he’s fighting robots!
Who is your favorite WWE Superstar?
H: My favorite Superstar is probably Santino because he has a sock puppet. You don’t see too many sock puppets in pro wrestling these days.
If you could pick any new “day job” for one of the Superstars to do, what would it be?
H: I’d like to see Mark Henry be a stop-motion animator. He seems like a patient guy.
