Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals! Macaulay Culkin became the real-life Kevin McCallister when he used his Home Alone tactics for a wrestling match. The ’90s star made a surprise appearance at Bar Wrestling in LA, helping tag team Joey Ryan, Candice LeRae, and Dick Justice take on Peter Avalon, Ray Rosas, and Swoggle.
The 37-year-old came out of the crowd chanting Home Alone repeatedly and proceeded to empty a bucket full of balls on the mat — causing his rivals to trip and fall in the middle of the ring. He then proceeded to climb on the middle rope and swing a bucket in the face of the opposing team.
Fans of the holiday classic will remember Kevin using the same skills to take on would-be Sticky Bandits Marv and Harry. And just like last time, the tactics worked, and Macaulay along with his team won the match. According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, the whole thing was filmed by the actor for an upcoming YouTube series he’s working on.
Recently, Macaulay revealed a new look and has been spotted with new girlfriend Brenda Song. He is also working on a new movie, Changeland — and fans can expect a mini-comeback from the private star. In a 2015 video, Macaulay joked how he was traumatized by his Home Alone character.
“I still have nightmares about this bald weirdo dude chasing me around talking like Yosemite Sam,” he said. “They don’t even curse! They remember my bastard brother but they forget me, the cutest f–king eight-year-old in the universe.” Daniel Stern, who played Marv in the film, also remembers those traps set out by Kevin.
“There were lots of paint cans and falling down the stairs and walking across glass and a tarantula crawling on my face,” he told The Wrap.. “I remember they had Christmas bulbs I had to walk across and they were made of candy glass. As an actor, you get to really go for it, and that was a realistic one I could do myself.” We think it’s time to sit down for a Home Alone marathon.
