The Bushwhackers were one of the most popular tag teams of the ’80s and ’90s. Their weird style and gimmicks made for some fun and entertaining moments. Despite being over with the fans, the Bushwhackers’ only achievement in the WWE was their Hall of Fame induction in 2015.
Although the Bushwhackers were retired, Bushwhacker Luke came out of retirement in 2007 and made appearances for ROH, Ultimate Championship Wrestling, and several Independent shows. At 75 years of age, Luke still competes in the Independent circuit.
Bushwhacker Luke has recently stated that he would love to participate in the 2023 Royal Rumble. To help him achieve his goal, a petition has been started on change.org and has gained 159 signatures. The petition reads as follows:
“Bushwhacker Luke, one-half of the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame tag team, The Bushwhackers, has recently stated that he would love to return for one last go in the WWE as an entrant in the 2023 Royal Rumble on January 28, 2023, at the San Antonio, Texas Alamodome.
As you may know, one of Bushwhacker Luke’s most memorable Royal Rumble appearances was in the 1991 Royal Rumble, when he famously marched to the ring and was eliminated by Earthquake John Tenta in four seconds. Now, at the age of 75, he’s ready to return!
So, please sign the petition and urge the WWE to bring back Bushwhacker Luke for one last ride at the 2023 Royal Rumble!!! Wooaahh Yeeaahh!!”
Although these petitions aren’t taken into consideration often, it would be entertaining to see Bushwhacker Luke participate in the 2023 Royal Rumble. However, it is unlikely to happen considering his age. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more coverage of such stories.
