Default Michael Buffer: $400 million in retail from Let's Get Ready to Rumble catchphrase!



A bit of history about the famous phrase.

Michael Buffer's brother Bruce states that in 7 years the Let's Get Ready to Rumble phrase generated $400,000,000 in retail sales!

Buffer went through various catchphrases in his early days until he was finally inspired by Muhammad Ali to come up with the famous line.

If you could list all the top fighters he has introduced, it would be a great list. He is definitely my favorite ring announcer ever. Something that I'll always remember is when he anounced Marquez name after he beat Manny. When he said Marquez and rolled the R, the look on Marquez face was priceless. You could tell it really hit him.

He doesn't look like he's worth 400 mil in a Benz. He would look much fresher in a Lambo.

I dunno, he'd look like a guy who can't come to grips w/ his age, IMO. Besides, that Benz rides a lot nicer than any Lambo, so maybe he just wants to be comfortable and not wave his c0ck around.

Well, yeah a Lambo is a rapper type of car anyway. He needs one that's above rappers and NBA players, he needs a car that a CEO would drive.
