Al Snow shares story of Walmart banning his action figure over a strange complaint

The legendary Al Snow recently spoke with NBC Sports Boston on a wide variety of topics, including the OVW president who shared a story about one of his action figures being pulled from Walmart over a strange complaint from two women writing the Atlanta Constitution. Watch the story below.

Recalls two women writing a letter to the Atlanta Constitution complaining about his mannequin-headed action figure:

“I was canceled before cancellation culture was a thing. Two women, who were all kinds of things, assistant professors of communications at a university in Georgia… went into a Walmart and without any study, without any homework, without any research, jumped into a very wild and completely innocent conclusion that the action figure I had, including a Barbie doll that jumped off with ‘HELP ME’ on it, a decapitated woman’s head, then wrote a letter to the Atlanta Constitution.’

How Walmart banned his figure, which made the doll sell out much faster:

“And of course, because wrestling was so hot at the time, the Atlanta Constitution printed it, without doing any real research itself…and then of course Walmart saw it, panicked, and then it led to where the toys were in it.” nationwide was banned in every store, making them sell out much faster. Walmart won’t sell (the figure) because they consider it a danger to the community; now admittedly, you can still go to Walmart, buy a shotgun with ammunition and a hunting knife to cut up your victim, but you can’t buy pregnant Barbie or my action figure.”
