James Corden: “We talked about your love of wrestling before, but I can’t believe this…this is real. You’re about to make you’re professional wrestling debut, next week. Ok, why and how did this happen?”
Ron Funches: I didn’t plan on it, sometimes I do my thing and I get asked to go to events and do commentating. I go up, talk a little trash and go home. This guy, I was talking trash about him, I met him a couple of times. He’s a real jerk, he has a hotmail account in 2021 (laughter from all).
James Corden: “Who is this guy?” (laughing) Who we talking about? Who is this?
Ron Funches: “His name is Tony Deppen, he’s just an independent wrestler and he doesn’t like jokes. He doesn’t understand humor, so he called me out. I was like ok, this guy is gonna talk to me, we’ll do a little bit, but he took it too far.”
Corden showed a video of Deppen slapping Funches
James Corden: “Hang on, wait now, is that real?
Ron Funches: “It was, that slap was so hard James, yes! (it was real)…he slapped the hell out of me.”
James Corden: “I’m worried about this, what’s the strategy going to be here?
Ron Funches: “I got techniques, first of all bribery, that’s my number one move. He has a Hotmail account, clearly he doesn’t have much money.
