Dennis Rodman: 5 WWE Promos (Maybe the Only 5) That Were More Insane Than His CNN Rant

Categories: Game Time, Sports

Rodman used to play basketball, in case you forgot.
Dennis Rodman's relationship with North Korea started with the best intentions (to film a documentary and help raise money to build a basketball court for some kids), but somewhere along the way, in a misguided twist, Rodman's trip became one of the more bizarre and, to many Americans, infuriating campaigns we've seen.

Rodman has now made multiple visits to North Korea, all the while professing his friendship for dictator Kim Jong Un. On the latest journey overseas, Rodman brought friends -- a handful of former NBA players including Charles Smith, Kenny Anderson, and Vin Baker -- to play in an exhibition game with some North Koreans.

Naturally, this didn't sit well with the basketball community or most of America, so Rodman went on CNN to explain himself to reporter Chris Cuomo.

It did not go well.

Eventually, the game would take place (including an odd rendition of "Happy Birthday" sung by Rodman to Kim Jong Un), but the damage had been done. Rodman's perceived lack of patriotism was surpassed by only his blood alcohol content, as he admitted later that he'd been drinking on the trip to deal with the stress.

Again, best intentions executed by a man totally ill-equipped to deal with the complexities of what he was trying to execute. But Rodman did leave us that quasi-wrestling promo that he cut on Cuomo and that might be the gift that keeps on giving.

If nothing else, it gives me an opportunity to go find five actual wrestling promos that are more insane than Rodman's was. And make no mistake, these might be the only five that were more insane than Rodman's. His was pretty insane.

Anyway, enjoy these:
