Triple M Footy favourite Jake “Push Up” King joined the Rush Hour with JB & Billy today and told a ripper story about a recovery wrestling match he had with Matthew Richardson — and won!
JB set the story up, saying it’s his favourite Jake King yarn.
“The Tigers go down, I think it was Port Melbourne, South Melbourne, Middle Park, wherever your water was, to recover,” he said, before Jake clarified it was Albert Park.
“They used to get into a circle, and two had to get in the middle and wrestle.
“Anyway, Push Up kept taunting Richo, saying ‘at some stage, you’re mine… my understanding is finally Push Up got his way, and it was he and Richo…”
JB said Jakey quickly got the upper hand, and asked Push Up to explain what happened.
“I did have him from behind and by his locks that he did have then,” Jake said.
“I then I had him under, and as you know, when you’re under the water you’re panicking, you don’t know which way is up.
“After a certain point of time I did let him go, and I ran on top of water quicker than you could imagine!”
