For months former light-heavyweight champion Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson has appeared to be in a sour mood, falling out with the UFC, and then more recently stating that he wished he hadn’t even appeared in The A-Team, or as he refers to it, “that damn movie”, which could be set to make him a mainstream star when it hits cinemas on June 11th.
last night the UFC star made a guest appearance on pro-wrestling show ‘Monday Night RAW’ show to promote his forthcoming A-Team movie last night and it appears to have brightened his mood considerably. Here’s what he had to say on his twitter account after the broadcast.
“I was like a kid today,I have not been happy this past week,but meeting my child hood heros,and making new friends was all I needed I’m back”
“I will tell y’all everything tomorrow,it’s late here,I’m still on tour,I will let y’all know what I’m doing so y’all can keep u,btw I want n”
“Everybody was cool! They r a bunch of big kids like me,doing what they love. Big Show was so funny! He showed me the choke slam. I want n!!!”
So what was all the fuss about? I’m not entirely sure, the guest spots were some of the most cringeworthy TV I’ve witnessed in quite some time. Check it out for yourselves below.
We can only hope this isn’t going to turn into another debacle like last year when he said he was retiring from MMA to become a movie star.
As Dana White recently stated about that move, “the grass isn’t greener on the other side,” and Rampage would do well to remember that before jumping in with both feet. Despite it not being “real”, pro-wrestling is notorious for being a grueling business with a punishing all year round schedule that’s unlikely to suit the fighter.
The good thing is that he recently signed a new six fight deal with the UFC so it’s unlikely he’ll be going anywhere else anytime soon.
