When not yelling at his GoPro camera Wanderlei Silva walks the Earth in search of people to announce his name. In Tokyo, Japan for Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2014 Silva cruised the concourse, rolled his wrists, hummed the beat of “Sandstorm” in his head while he interacted with fans. Several years after the death of Pride FC Tokyo is still Silva’s city.
The narrator of many of Silva’s Pride FC’s fights was ring announcer Lenne Hardt. In the voice acting game Hardt beats Morgan Freeman nine out of ten times. Freeman could have tried to introduce Silva prior to his second fight with Rampage Jackson and Hardt could have screamed at penguins waddling to their demise in “March of the Penguins”.Freeman isn’t about that soccer kick life.
Morgan Freeman did not attend Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2014 but Hardt and her siren sounds did. “Wanderlei SILVVVVVVAAAAA” was belted from lungs of Hardt right into the face of The Ax Murder in a perfect Instagram video. The rants and happenings in the ongoing Wanderlei Silva story become completely logical if they are introduced by the voice of Lenne Hardt.
