History[edit | edit source]
Rod had appeared as a model in several magazines, such as Men's Exercise and Playgirl. He worked as a personal trainer for Met-Rx and won an award for being the best personal trainer in 1999. He also had success in his competitive bodybuilding career. He likely got invited to be a part of the Knaked Knights cast because of his appearance in Playgirl.
Role in Gachimuchi Pants Wrestling[edit | edit source]
Rod Pupret is a minor character. His body is considered one of the best. Rod's physique is characterized by moderately sun-burnt skin and looks to have been trained to its limit. He is on the cover art of Knaked Knights. However, he is not a main character of the film, unlike Anthony Capriatti.
Rod Pupret has his own theme from his solo scene in Knaked Knights.
Fans' Investigation[edit | edit source]
Japanese fans later found out that in his philosophical scene he had what looked like a black scar and other bruises on his legs, The black spots on Rod's shins, knees, left hand, and the scratch marks on Rod's left thigh, respectively; can be looked at in Rod's philosophical scene. This raised questions, and an email was shortly sent to the film's producer, Sharpshooter Video:
"Thank you for your inquiry.
A few days before the filming of this video, he had his leg injured in a car accident.
So we couldn't get him to move violently. Some cuts and scratches were hidden (possibly with makeup).
The side effects of his painkillers made him so sleepy, that he could sleep for several hours while filming.
Despite such adverse conditions, he played as much of a guard as possible. Certainly there are no fighting scenes, etc, but he has still starred throughout the video.
Thank you for your support in the future."
Death[edit | edit source]
A tweet made by Doubleuman states that Rod passed away on June 4th, 2019 in his home due to an apparent drug overdose. He was 42 years old. Little is currently known.
