VIDEO: Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo continues wrestling pregame routine, ends Robin Lopez with Cobra finish
It’s no secret that Milwaukee Bucks backup center Robin Lopez is a big pro-wrestling fan, often seen tussling with mascots throughout his nine-year NBA career. It seems that his affinity with the sport has rubbed off on his teammates, as the East-leading squad had a rather interesting pregame routine prior to their match versus the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday.
The 31-year-old lumbering center figured in a locker room “match” with reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. The pair showcased their best WWE-esque moves, with the Greek Freak even tagging in teammate Wesley Matthews once again.

Giannis came up with coup the grace, hitting Lopez with the cobra finisher, a move popularized by former WWE superstar Santino Marella.
RoLo’s acting skills were pretty impressive, as he fell to the floor and got pinned by Antetokounmpo. Riding the high of a 16-game winning streak entering Friday, the Bucks were tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for the best record in the league at 22-3.
