The superstars of WWE are in the New York and New Jersey for WrestleMania this week, so that meant they got to make an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night. They were part of a four-minute bit called Kid Trash Talk.
The six WWE superstars involved in the skit were Braun Strowman, Kofi Kingston, Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins, Alexa Bliss and Carmella.
The idea behind the skit was they had kids send in some trash talk notes and then the WWE superstars had to do their best to make the trash talk seem intimidating. Jimmy made it clear that these were written by real kids. It was a funny concept.
Braun Strowman was up first. As you would expect, it involved a lot of yelling and the dialogue was pretty funny. Strowman was very good at it.
Carmella was next. Her dialogue was the shortest of them all.
Drew McIntyre had a good delivery for his unique trash talk.
Alexa Bliss delivered her lines well too. The key thing is that delivered it in a serious way without laughing. The words were pretty silly, but it’s all in the delivery in a comedy bit like this.
Kofi Kingston had a lot of fun with it even though there wasn’t much to say: “You look like a potato and a chicken nugget had a baby.” That is better than some trash talk we get on Raw!
Seth Freakin’ Rollins was up last. As you can see above, the trash talk that he had to read was probably the funniest of all. Kids have a way with words.
The bit ended with Fallon plugging WrestleMania this Sunday night and then the superstars are all intimidated Fallon to end the bit.
If I had to pick one as the best trash talker in this segment, I’d go with Strowman. His intensity helped a lot.
