I'm Canadian. Body-checking is part of our culture.

Asia was also significantly larger than that person and fooling around..
Nohman, you stealing my handle? Lol. Body checks are usually done in fighting scenarios that don't involve clinching or grappling. I use it in boxing whenever I smother an opponent to prevent punches and need to create space afterwards to fire my own punches off. I don't know if using Asia as an example is best because Asia is a huge dude.
I think that's the video we're looking for. Note the size difference. In addition, a body check will quickly move the fight into a ground fighting scenario. At the end, that's what Asia does. If you want to cause damage with it, I think a good ground-n-pound strategy as a follow-up would work.
