Rock Riddle on Fernwood 2 Night

I’m a big comedy fan, and Fred Willard was always one of my favorite actors. After hearing him discuss the show Fernwood 2 Night on Leonard Maltin’s podcast, I looked it up on YouTube.

I saw an episode labeled “Wrestling,” so naturally, I picked that one first.

Imagine my surprise seeing the one and only Rock Riddle playing “Mr. Wonderful” Rock Mondo.”

If you know me, Rock is one of my favorite people in the wrestling business. He’s a real character, and he has great Hollywood stories as well as wrestling. The first time we met, I asked him about Chuck Barris.

Rock gives a truly wonderful performance here, and the show is a riot beginning to end. Enjoy.
