Some TMNT stuff really isn't for little kids.

In the IDW continuity, Cryin' Houn' is the International Wrestling Federation champion wrestler on Stump's asteroid, and appears to work as Stump's assistant when not in the ring. He was scheduled to fight a championship match against Antrax, but that was thwarted when Raphael defeated Antrax instead.

Instead, Stump decided to have Cryin' Houn' and a rookie wrestler tag-team-battle Leonardo and Donatello, with Cryin' Houn' set to win. Cryin' Houn' pretended to search the audience for a suitable partner, but was interrupted by the arrival of Hakk-R, and was displeased that he was being left out of the fight. When Hakk-R attacked him as well, Cryin' Houn' retaliated by trying to smash the assassin.

Cryin' Houn' accompanied Stump and the Turtles back to the hot rod spacecraft, where Stump was already scheming the next phases in his and Antrax's careers. He was outraged when Raphael declared that wrestling was fake, and attacked him.


  • This incarnation of Cryin' Houn's gimmick as an Elvis Presley impersonator is a reference to the entertainer's cover of the song Hound Dog, which featured the lyric "You ain't nothin' but a hound dog, cryin' all the time."
