Apart from basketball, Dennis Rodman is a retired part-time professional wrestler and actor. He was a member of the nWo and fought alongside Hulk Hogan at two Bash at the Beach events. After getting suspended for the rest of the 1996–1997 NBA season, Rodman seriously took up his hobby of professional wrestling and appeared on the edition of March 10 of Monday Nitro with his friend Hollywood Hulk Hogan in World Championship Wrestling (WCW). At the March 1997 Uncensored event, he appeared as a member of the nWo. His first match was at the July 1997 Bash at the Beach event, where he teamed with Hogan in a loss to Lex Luger and The Giant. At the August 1997 Road Wild event, Rodman appeared as the Impostor Sting hitting Luger with a baseball bat to help Hogan win the WCW World Heavyweight Championship...

 

After the 1997–98 NBA season, where Rodman and the Chicago Bulls defeated Karl Malone and the Utah Jazz in the 1998 NBA Finals, Rodman and Malone squared off again, this time in a tag team match at the July 1998 Bash at the Beach event. He fought alongside Hulk Hogan, and Malone tagged along with Diamond Dallas Page. In a poorly received match, the two power forwards exchanged "rudimentary headlocks, slams and clotheslines" for 23 minutes. Rodman bested Malone again as he and Hogan picked up the win. Rodman returned to WCW in 1999 and feuded with Randy Savage. This culminated in a match at Road Wild which Rodman lost.

 In the final minute of the fourth game of the 1998 NBA finals, Rodman forced Karl Malone of the Utah Jazz to foul him and then sank both the free throws to clinch a 86-82 victory for the Chicago Bulls, giving them a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Rodman’s performance was all the more remarkable because he had skipped a Bulls training session during the build-up to the game to take part in a wrestling match in Detroit. For choosing to pair up with Hulk Hogan rather than work out with Michael Jordan, Rodman was fined $20,000, not even a tenth of what he was paid for, among other things, breaking a chair over an opponent in the ring.

~So what do you think ? Celebrity hoax or was The Worm on the right track? We've seen his antics on and off the court... Always into something wild. Just what will be next for one of the original "Bad Boys"!
