Although it feels somewhat odd to be writing about Dennis Rodman on a retro-themed website, it’ll be fifteen years this summer since Dennis Rodman made his debut as a part-time professional wrestler in the WCW alongside Hulk Hogan as a member of the New World Order (NWO). After receiving multiple suspensions from the NBA (one for headbutting a referee, another for kicking a cameraman in the groin), professional wrestling seemed like a perfect match for “The Worm”.
I picked this figure up at a garage sale last weekend for $2. The “Power Slam” version of Dennis Rodman came with several accessories, including a breakaway backboard (that breaks into four pieces) and a pink fedora. You can also remove Rodman’s silver jacket for when it was time to get in the ring and get down to business. I have seen the same figure for sale with orange hair instead of blue, leading me to believe that the figure (just like the real Rodman) was available with multiple hair colors.
