Pro Wrestler Wears Dragon Ball Armour, Gets His Arse Kicked Anyway

Pro Wrestler Wears Dragon Ball Armour, Gets His Arse Kicked Anyway

Not even Saiyan armour can save this guy from a quick defeat. If you tuned in to last night's WWE NXT show, then you might have seen a segment featuring the unstoppable Baron Corbin and a wrestler wearing iconic Dragon Ball armour.

Video: Tim Burke

Here's the armour from the DBZ anime, for comparison's sake:

Unfortunately, the wrestler loses the match mere moments after it begins. It's a bummer. But still! Kind of awesome to see someone sporting a Dragon Ball getup on this stage, no?

While the clip above doesn't identify the DBZ wrestler, my guess is that it's 'Mr. 450' Hammett -- a Puerto Rican pro wrestler that has finishing moves such as 'Final Flash,' and 'Saiyan Driver' according to Wikipedia. He is known for wearing Saiyan Armour on occasion, amazingly enough. Hopefully Hammett's next appearance on NXT can be worthy of such dramatic attire. I'd love to see a DBZ fan make waves in the WWE!

    Clearly the lack of shoulderpads lost him the fight...

    What's with the javascript fadeout on the video? Looks like some 90x120 "affiliate" button from an anime fansite.

    I'm really hoping this theme is part of his long game and he's going to come back after his defeat stronger than ever.
    Y'know...after eating some beans or something.

    It's a combination of 3 armors
    - Purple and black coloring comes from Turles' suit
    - The non-shoulder pads version is the basic soldier style of Freiza's troops (Elites have large shoulder pads)
    - The logo on the left chest piece is Vegeta's family crest (Seen on young Prince Vegeta & his father in flashbacks)

    GOD DAMN I'M A NERD!!

    He didn't keep his eye on the birdie....

    can someone tell me where did he get that from?
