It’s not every day you see a 6-foot-6 dude who weighs 300 pounds scrapping with someone at the Walmart check-out line. Sure, we’ve seen some crazy things (like this insane wrestling match) happen at the superstore over the years.
But a dude the size of an NFL offensive tackle getting knocked out while bystanders wait to have their groceries bagged? Simply wild.
In fact, a clip of a massive dude getting the snot beat out of him made its rounds on social media because everyone thought he was a former NFL left tackle.
Internet Mistakes Walmart Fighter For Ex-NFL Player
This Walmart fight is objectively crazy. This big guy in the green antagonizes another shopper into throwing fists, and all hell breaks loose in the store.
The much smaller man lays into him punch after punch. One right hook sends the “NFL player” into a self-checkout register. Another blow sends all 300-something pounds of him to the ground.
Finally, a heroic woman is able to stop this bloodbath of a fight that probably happened at 2 p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon.
In a tweet that went viral, a user named “Raider Albert” jokingly posted the video with the caption:
“BREAKING: ex #Raiders offensive tackle Bruce Campbell involved in altercation. Was taken to hospital with a broken jaw. Wow. #RaiderNation”
The only problem? That wasn’t Bruce Campbell, the offensive lineman who spent time with the Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers and New York Jets.
That was debunked by The Athletic‘s Ted Nguyen, who wrote on Twitter that the tweet was from a “troll account which was joking.”
It sure looked like a former NFL player, though. Numerous websites ran with headlines saying Campbell was the perpetrator in the fight. The former Raiders player’s name was everywhere on social media.
There’s no denying that the man in the viral video of the Walmart fight is a large human being. I don’t know who he is, but it’s not former Oakland Raiders’ Bruce Campbell.
