Chris Pontius and Steve-O reflect on their experience in a WWE ring.
The duo of Steve-O and Chris Pontius stepped into a WWE ring on the October 16th edition of Monday Night RAW in 2006 and they came face-to-face with the late Edward Fatu who was known at the time as former two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion, "The Samoan Bulldozer" Umaga. Steve-O and Pontius received a beat down from Umaga and Steve-O has spoken about the experience in the past and shared that he was seriously begging for Umaga to stop tossing him around but realized that if he kept telling him to back off, Umaga would have to continue.
Steve-O and Chris Pontius sat down to re-watch the segment for a new video that was posted onto Steve-O's YouTube channel. When the two came around to the final portion of their segment, Pontius spoke about when they went back to gorilla position and stated that Vince McMahon was thrilled with how things turned out but wished McMahon explained the importance of staying down more so that Umaga would've put an end to his beat down earlier.
“When we did leave the ring, we went down the aisle, we went to the control room and Vince McMahon is in there and he’s like, ‘Yes!’. He was so stoked. He could’ve stressed the importance of staying down a little more." Pontius laughed.
At the time, Fatu was managed by Armando Alejandro Estrada and Estrada made a return to wrestling in March for the AAW promotion to manage the nephew of Umaga, Jacob Fatu.
