Andy Warhol was a fascinating man, with extremely diverse interests, skills and collaborations. Take one look at the crowd hanging around the Factory, and the crowd that surrounded him when he made appearances at events, and you know Warhol loved variety in his life.
Variety is great and all, but Warhol really never struck me as the type who would enjoy watching wrestling, especially 80s era WWF matches starring colorful characters like Hulk Hogan and Rowdy Roddy Piper.
However, this video shows that Warhol did at one time enjoy watching men pretend to beat each other wrestling, and he spoke with intrepid reporter Mean Gene Okerlund after a match when he "accidentally" entered the wrong door and found himself in the thick of some pretend beef ala Hulk Hogan and Lou Albano.
Man, those were the good ol' days!
