Verne Lundquist Off the Top Rope On ESPN

Videos by OutKick

Late in Alabama’s win over LSU, CBS cameras found AJ McCarron’s mom and Katherine Webb standing on the sideline. 

Our guy, Uncle Verne Lundquist, identified them from the television audience and then several seconds passed. Gary Danielson needled him, “That’s it, that’s all you’re going to say?”

And then Verne Lundquist jumped off the top rope and flying elbow smashed ESPN and Brent Musburger. 

“You darn right,” Lundquist replied, “I don’t work for that four letter network.”



I think I speak for everyone when I say this Musburger – Lundquist feud can only end one way — in a legendary no holds barred street fight at the end of Anchorman 2. 

Needless to say, this was a moment when y’all needed to finish all your drinks.
