November 22, 2007 TNA Sources: Pacman Jones Kept Asking Where Doink The Clown Is
NASHVILLE—According to sources from Total Nonstop Action, the pro-wrestling league in which Adam "Pacman" Jones fought for the past two months, the suspended NFL star would not stop inquiring as to the whereabouts of such wrestlers as Doink The Clown, Bam Bam Bigelow, the Steiner Brothers, Big Boss Man, Marty Jannetty, and Lord Steven Regal.

I think it would work better if it were Jones and Bradshaw. If Bradshaw rejects Nathan's advances, then he can fly first class, in which case Bradshaw will have to 'punish' him anyway, which Nathan's character would enjoy.
