Netflix’s Squid Game has taken the world by storm, as it has now become the streaming platform’s most successful show yet. It was also said that Netflix paid $21.4 million for Squid Game. Being a big trending topic right now, it was certain the show was going to get parodied. It seems The Elite have parodied the show as well.
Squid Game has managed to become a huge part of pop culture already, as it has seen multiple parodies across various mediums including games, shows, skits and many more. Now it seems pro wrestling can be included in that field as well.
During the latest Being the Elite, the episode featured a terrific parody of Squid Game. It all started with Brandon Cutler answering a knock on the door. A card with some symbols (and a phone number) is thrown under the door, much like in Netflix’s Squid Game,
Eventually, Cutler calls the number and gets into a car with others already asleep. Cutler is then knocked out via a spray. Private Party, Lulu Pencil, and Nakazawa are woken up by Squid Game workers. The leader welcomes them to the game and tells them they have a chance at winning a big sum of money.
The first game featured a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, where Private Party and Pencil and Nakazawa pass the first challenge. The second game is The Floor is Lava, where Kassidy gets eliminated.
Quen is eliminated later on in the night after Lulu Pencil stabs him. The third game is Mortal Kombat. Pencil and Nakazawa battle each other and it ends with Nakawaza wining $5 million.
After the game, the workers were revealed to be Cole, Matt, and Nick. The leader comes over and says the moment they revealed themselves, they cease to exist. Kenny then gets angry and says, ‘“You guys made me do that! Why did I have to do that for a Halloween episode?!”
The episode ends with Nakazawa having red hair at the airport, where he calls the number again. They answer and tell him to get on the plane as he has already been paid. He turns around and decides to go back for another round.
