My nephew is a professional wrestler. Strictly smalltime right now, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see him go on to stardom. He’s only 20 years old and is in amazing shape; the kid’s a natural athlete, so yeah, he could very well hit the big time. If he does, I’m gonna take some of the credit for it, since it was me who introduced him to wrestling back when he was just a tyke. Not infrequently I’ll make the hour-long drive to watch him perform. I see many things at these small show wrestling events, vintage Americana even if of a crude variety. Plenty of rednecks, lots of unattractive people. One thing I would not have expected to find there, however, was fodder for a vampire article, yet find it I did.
My nephew told me all about Bubbula. That’s a commingling of the names “Bubba” and “Dracula,” if you couldn’t figure it out on your own. Bubbula is not the guy’s real name, but it should be. Bubbula is a retired wrestler and is now a wannabe promoter. It’s sorta the equivalent of prostitutes, when they get too old to turn tricks, becoming madams. What makes Bubbula stand out is his teeth, or lack thereof. He only has two in his whole mouth, and these are the canines in his upper gums. This lends Bubbula a distinctly vampiric appearance, despite his wearing of overalls and a baseball cap instead of a suit and cape. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Bubbula is out there!
