Rappers vs. Wrestlers On Punk'd

Screen shot 2012-06-04 at 9.26.07 PM

Though hip-hop's braggadocio retains its tough image, MTV's popular television series Punk'd seems to always find a way to prove the opposite. During this past Sunday's (June 3) episode, Ashton Kutcher and the crew managed to put a scare on YMCMB's Drake after tricking the "Take Care" rapper into thinking he was experiencing an earthquake. The result? Another hilarious prank pulled, at the expense of another rapper. What's interesting however—and sort of random—is that when professional wrestlers, who are often considered fake and/or athletic actors, come on the show, they seem to carry more of the hard-boiled hip-hop persona than some rappers are expected to show when featured. Comparing the two, XXL looks at a few notable Punk'd moments featuring rappers and wrestlers, distinguishing the realest moments between the two realms.—XXL Staff (@XXL)


WHO: Drake
REALEST MOMENT: "Yo CJ, I thought that we were about to get fucking blown up..."

As the YMCMB rapper was tricked into thinking he would be meeting with United States' Vice President Joe Biden, Drizzy was instead welcomed to his first fake earthquake experience.


WHO: Triple H
REALEST MOMENT: “You’re going to be pulling that camera out of your fucking ass if you don’t go in the other room and leave us alone.”

When he’s tricked into thinking he slammed the door open into a bride, who was entering through the opposite end, Triple H seems like he’s ready to kick some ass and even forces one of the fake photographers to shut his mouth and go into the next room—well more specifically “Go back to your fucking hole…because I'm about to smash [your camera] if you don't get out of here."


WHO: Bizarre
REALEST MOMENT: Bizarre sheds a tear.

After getting pulled over by impostor cops who soon after questioning him, Bizarre starts shedding some tears—or was it really the wind?


WHO: The Rock
REALEST MOMENT: “First of all it’s a Lava Lava, there’s only one fucking crease. Number two, you’re fine, you didn’t get killed or anything like that. Number three, don’t say it’s my fault.”

As he’s blamed for the explosion of his movie trailer, The Rock looks amped to put someone in his devastating “Rock Bottom” finisher and even attempts to whoop some Candy Ass.


REALEST MOMENT: “Don’t do that, bruh.”

Though there was no crying or weeping here, Tip's memorable episode after getting tricked into think he was about to be arrested for trafficking was just one clip that couldn’t be looked over. “This ain’t mine…it’s a bullet but it ain’t mine.”

Stone Cold

WHO: Stone Cold Steve Austin
REALEST MOMENT: “You look in the mirror everyday don’t you? You’re a stupid son of a bitch”

Austin 3:16 looks like he’s about to pull out a finishing move on this restaurant manager, after the latter fires an employee that he assumes took the wrestler’s cell phone. Even when he admits to being "Punk’d," Stone Cold looks like he’s already seeking revenge.
