In an upcoming episode of 'The Simpsons' we learn that Grampa has a past as a professional wrestler. This is the first real spoof of professional wrestling by the gang from Springfield and, honestly, what took so long?

Here is the official episode preview from Fox.

"Homer’s obsession with the TV show “Storage Battles” leads the family to discover Grampa’s past identity as 'Gorgeous Godfrey,' the most feared, villainous man in pro-wrestling history. What’s more amazing, he was once revered by a young Montgomery Burns, who now convinces Grampa to get back in the ring. But when Bart starts to adopt some of his grandfather’s former cheating ways, Grampa must reconcile with his past before it’s too late."

The episode was directed by Chuck Sheetz and written Matt Selman.
