Former WWE superstar Tyler Reks recently filmed a commercial that was submitted as an entry for the “Doritos Crash the Super Bowl” contest.
In the commercial titled “A Dorito A Day” shows a dying man that is terminally ill in a hospital bed. He has his family surrounding him as his doctor tells him that there is nothing more that medicine can do for him.
As the terminally ill man starts to hyperventilate, his mother passes him a Doritos bag of chips that his father was eating out of at first. As soon as he starts breathing into the bag, he quickly turns into WWE superstar Tyler Reks. The newly healed man states he feels “pretty good” as everyone (including the nurse at the foot of his bed) stare at him with shocked expressions on their faces.
The video was originally posted by Jamie Tuell on his official YouTube channel Thursday.
Tyler Reks has even been promoting this video on his official Twitter page, trying to get his fans (aka “The Rekking Crew”) to vote for the video in order to better its chances of winning the contest.
Gabe Tuft (aka Tyler Reks) signed to a developmental deal contract with the WWE back in January of 2008. Tyler Reks made his official debut in the main roster of ECW on SciFi in June of 2009. When the ECW permanently closed down, Tyler Reks joined SmackDown in 2010. He had basically killed off the on-stage persona of a surfer dude that he portrayed during his time with the EW and replaced it with bearded man with chest hair and a brand new wardrobe.
Throughout his wrestling career, Tyler Reks went by quite a few nicknames in the ring — including “T. Reks” and “The Dreadlocked Demolition Man.” Pro Wrestling Torch reported in August of 2012 that Tyler Reks was officially released from the WWE.
Tyler Reks’ release was also confirmed on the official WWE Twitter page around the same time.
Several reports claim that Tyler Reks decided to leave the ring in order to focus on spending more time with his wife, Priscilla and their daughter, Mia.
Do you like Tyler Reks’ commercial? If it receives enough votes in the Doritos contest, it just might win the chance to actually be seen during the Big Game in 2015.
