Fred is a man of many talents! He is a drama teacher, bar trivia host, and professional wrestler. Recently, viewers were introduced to him through a Hawaiian-themed episode.
Fred admitted that he does not make much money from the sport he does, but does it for the fun of it. Fortunately, he recently won a series of puzzle games and took home $75,800. Sajak celebrated Fred’s success by giving him a body slam, which quickly turned into a hug.
“Just because he’s a professional wrestler, you want me to body-slam him for you?” Sajak asked the other contestants. When the episode ended, the host actually attempted to put the man in a headlock.
Sajak has been the host of the show since 1981 with Vanna White. Vanna shared her feelings on the possibility of Pat’s hosting duties potentially ending someday.
“I can’t imagine,” White said, “Everybody relates Wheel of Fortune to Pat and Vanna. We’re like Ken and Barbie, you know? We’ve been in everybody’s homes for 40 years, so it would be weird having somebody else turn my letters.”
“I mean, we’re a team,” White continued. “That’s depressing. I don’t even want to think about it.”
Several viewers are watching a replay on the clip on various platforms and sharing their reactions.
“The guy is a drama teacher and a wrestler. What Pat did was perfect. It was drama and wrestling in one. And this will make a great trivia question that he will read at a bar one day,” one user wrote.
“Remind me not to mess with pat sajak,” another shared.
