That's a stupid new nickname made up by the stupid new announcer. The original nickname was created by the original nickname master Rex "THE WONDERDOG" Hudler because Bam Bam listens to the group Bam Bam on the bus and blasts it for the whole team to listen to. Speaking of which

Sorry but the opinion of anyone who enjoyed anything Rex Hudler ever had to say or has to say is completely invalid :(

Stupid, easy, uncreative. I miss the days of Cool Papa Bell and Piano Legs Gore.


I agree with NTorp on this one...
