• “If they had hit him in the head it would have killed him” – Haku Once No-Sold A Brutal Fan Attack
NWA/WCW Legend ‘The Taskmaster’ Kevin Sullivan was a guest on an episode of Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts’ weekly ‘The Snake Pit’ podcast, where they talked about how tough WWF Veteran Haku (Meng in WCW) really was back in the day.
The former leader of The Dungeon of Doom revealed a story about how a fan actually threw a cinder block from a roof and it hit Haku right on the shoulder, but he just no-sold it and kept going.
The incident took place during the good old days of kayfabe – where most fans hated the heels with a passion – in a run-down Nassau County, Florida arena, that was basically a storage unit.
Here’s what Kevin Sullivan said:
“Everybody talks about Haku being the toughest guy in the business? I saw something that I guarantee you made him the toughest guy in my eyes.
They’d sit on the roof of that place and we’d have to run in, and as we’d run in and they’d have umbrellas too and they stab you with their umbrellas.
As I’m ready to go out and I see Meng (Haku) coming back and all of a sudden, they threw a cinder block and hit him on the shoulder from the roof.
He dropped to a knee, but he just shook it off and came in. If they had hit him in the head it would have killed him.”
