A WWE Legend Is Pretending To Be Virgil Van Dijk

A WWE Legend Is Pretending To Be Virgil Van Dijk

Sometimes, in the world of professional wrestling, it can be said that a superstar is only as strong as their gimmick. Let's face it, in the mid '90s many a career was doomed by some poor sod being turned into a bin man or a magician or an actual fucking turkey. Yet every now and again, you'd get a man who would live the gimmick and become a bona fide main event player.

And, over 25 years since his role as the Million Dollar Man's butler, Virgil is making a play for a main event push once again by using another famous Virgil to get himself over.

In much the same way as he rode the coattails of a man worth millions, Virgil has jumped on the back of Virgil van Dijk's record breaking £75 million move to Liverpool from Southampton this week by pretending to be the Dutch centre-half on Twitter.

And let me tell you, this work is worthy of a return to the WWE and at least a spot in next month's Royal Rumble.

On 26th December, a day before van Dijk put pen to paper on his Anfield contract, Virgil was tweeting about meat sauce. Since then, however, we have seen the birth of what may be the biggest superstar sports entertainment has seen since the Texas Rattlesnake Stone Cold Steve Austin bled himself unconscious at WrestleMania 13.

Dear Vince McMahon, if you don't book Virgil vs Van Dijk for the rights to the Virgil name at WrestleMania, are you even a wrestling promoter any more, mate?
