Kim Kardashian’s fiery choice in fashion brought to mind images of Bam Bam Bigelow and caused him to trend on Twitter!
Reality star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian is never out of the public eye, particularly now that her new series The Kardashians has aired on Hulu in the United States and internationally on Disney+.
Images of the socialite emerged on social media on April 13th that saw her wearing an outfit that included flames embroidered on a black turtleneck along with a red wrap skirt and red boots, accessorized by black faux fur sunglasses and bag to match.
Fired up wrestling fans immediately began drawing comparisons to Bam Bam Bigelow, who famously wore flames on both his gear and tattooed on his head. The comparisons were so numerous that the former Million Dollar Corporation member was trending on Twitter, with one account asking who wore the iconic flames better.

Upon seeing these comparisons, some fans on Twitter also called to mind another set of WCW legends, noting that Kardashian’s dress could also have been inspired by WWE Hall of Famers Harlem Heat.

This isn’t Kim Kardashian’s first time being connected to wrestling, however, as she was previously a guest hostess at WrestleMania XXIV. As she was hyping up the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at the event, she was interrupted by Mr. Kennedy, who claimed that he would go on to be a two-time Money in the Bank winner before yelling his name in his signature style.
Bam Bam Bigelow began his wrestling career in 1985 and had multiple stints with both WWF and WCW before wrestling his final match in 2006. The legend sadly passed away in 2007 at the age of 45.
