I watched this, and I cried. Now, I get to see it in person…
The Timmy Takedown benefits Timmy Global Health, a foundation run by ex-pro wrestler turned pediatrician Dr. Chuck Dietzen. In a nutshell, Dr. Dietzen becomes his old wrestling persona Dr. Doom and gets in the ring with his special needs patients. They create their own wrestling personalities (The Hug-inator is bad booty daddy!), and they proceed to give Dr. Doom and other wrestlers the “whupin'” of their lives. We might be in Pier Six Brawl or ‘government mule’ territory, who knows?
In reality, Dr. Dietzen has the best gimmick in the world – helping kids. Timmy Takedown is Saturday, November 16 at Park Tudor High School in Indianapolis. I will be there, and I hope you will, too. Please listen to my conversation with Dr. Doom himself below. And yes, that is the theme song for World Championship Wrestling, circa 1983.
