Dr Disrespect gets a challenge from WWE's Undertaker
Twitch personality Herschel "Dr Disrespect" Beahm IV's charisma and gaming skill have combined to make his character's history and lore fascintating enough to garner him a television show and memoir deals. But now Dr Disrespect's timeline getting even jucier.
In a recent stream, fans were on the edge of their seats when Dr Disrespect's seemingly innocent stroll was interrupted by a message telling him to pick up. His followers frantically spammed the chat, telling him to answer his phone. Dr Disrespect reluctantly did, cautiously lifting the phone up to his ear.
"You've trespassed on sacred ground," an intense voice said.
Fans immediately recognized the voice as WWE wrestler, Mark William Calaway aka The Undertaker. He is currently regarded as one of the best professional wrestlers of all time, known for The Streak, a series of 21 victories straight at WrestleMania. His persona is a macabre entity and sometimes biker with links to the supernatural.
"I have no patience for the Two-Time. WWE is my domain, my yard. Your transgressions will be punished. Dr Disrespet, you will rest... in... PEACE!" The Undertaker exclaimed.
"I swear we are living in the weirdest timeline," one Dr Disrespect fan said on Reddit.
Many people loved Dr Disrespect's production value and dedication to creating an entertaining storyline reminiscent of WWE's past. While little is known about Dr Disrespect's lore (for now), his larger-than-life persona is meant to mirror that of a WWE wrestler. And many fans felt he could maybe even be a WWE wrestler for real.
"I always thought the Doc would be a top notch pro-wrestler. Athletic, tall as fuck, he'd cut great promos. The Undertaker is billed 6'10'' but is probably actually about 6'8'' so he'd go eye to eye with the Doc," one fan noted.
This got many fans speculating if Dr Disrespect would truly get involved with WrestleMania, even if he wouldn't actually wrestle. It'd be like when Mr. T and Mike Tyson made appearances on the program. While this was met with some doubt from other Reddit users, it might not be much of a stretch.
Dr Disrespect made a surprise appearance on WWE Smackdown late last year. The two hosts turn around to see him in the background and he introduces himself as the "two-time video game champion."
When asked what he's doing at WWE Smackdown, Dr Disrespect gives him an intense stare and says he's looking for someone. They ask him who but he mysteriously storms off without answering.
"He's very tall," the host says. "And very intimidating. I don't want to be the guy he's looking for."
In a YouTube video posted by WWE at the beginning of February, Dr Disrespect can be seen "driving" on a green screen. He calls out WWE, telling them he's still looking for someone, lightening crackling in the sky behind him.
"And I will find them!" he yells. "I will find them..."
After that eerie message, the video cuts out dramatically.
It's not clear if the person he was looking for was The Undertaker, but it appears the famous wrestler has heard of Dr Disrespect snooping around WWE and is not happy about it.
Either way, most fans are excited by the growing storyline and thickening plot and they're hoping to see Dr Disrespect become the Three-Time by duking it out in the ring.
