World's First Robot vs. Human Pro Wrestling Match Ends in KO

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

In one corner, we've got a spry, three-foot-tall robot, prone to floating like a butterfly and doing its damnedest to sting like a bee; in the other, a medium-sized Japanese pro wrestler in shiny silver short shorts. WHO WILL WIN?!

All that crowd-baiting mugging and genital-constricting athletic gear evidently couldn't help the representative of humans everywhere, as he went down in the first to the remote-controlled robot's fierce uppercut. The robot, given the noble and awesome name of Genuine Great King Kizer, is the current model designed by Naoki Maru, who creates a new one double the size of the last every 18 months or so. The next one, obviously, is going to destroy Tokyo. [BotJunkie]
