Cloverleaf Radio Presents: Former WWF Superstar Duke The Dumpster Droese!

26 minutes

Cloverleaf Radio's host The Host with the Most Jimmy Falcon welcomes Former WWF Superstar Duke The Dumpster Droese!

Michael David Droese is an American retired professional wrestler and special education teacher. He is best known for his appearances with the World Wrestling Federation between 1994 and 1996 under the ring name Duke "The Dumpster" Droese.

From the garbage heaps of Mt. Trashmore, Florida to the rings of WWE, the burly rubbish collector known as Duke "The Dumpster" Droese was one of the few Superstars who literally talked trash.

Starting his career in the Florida independent circuit in the early '90s, Droese debuted with WWE in 1994 and immediately began to butt heads with Jerry "The King" Lawler. The rivalry between these two men earned a small place in WWE history when Lawler struck "The Dumpster" in the head with his own garbage can. Considered to be one of the first occurrences of hardcore ring action on Monday Night Raw, the act was so shocking that "The King" was forced to apologize for demonstrating such brutal aggression on television. 

"The Dumpster's" other notable rivalry of the era was against a young Triple H. Again, Droese would achieve another interesting distinction when he dealt Triple H his first loss in WWE. This victory earned the trash man the No. 30 spot in the 1996 Royal Rumble match. While Duke failed to win the bout, he racked up a few more victories over Triple H in the coming months. JOIN US!
