Not really sure if i should be putting this here or in random.

    The Eli XXXperience featurettes is a riot. Chris Marquette goes to the Adult Industry Expo held during CES and mingles with the porn stars. In a Howard Stern moment, hulking ex-pro wrestler Matt 'Horshu' Wiese walks up to men at the expo asking them if they want to make out with him. This has to be seen.


Fun stuff indeed.

Not entirely surprising. 'Shu kinda lives on an entirely different planet from the rest of us.

Doesn't the Horshu character sound like it has a lot more marketable potential than a generic bodyguard gimmick? Why must WWE never allow their minor league guys to use their original characters?

I don't know about this case, but I'm sure that there are times that the WWE wants to own the name, and the wrestler might not want them to own it (presumably because they can get more money from independent promoters).

Plus, I don't mind the name Luther Reigns. It sounds better than Horshu to me. Now if we could just get the name Tyson Tomko changed.

Agreed. I can't help but think "Newly Unemployed" would be a gimmick much more suited to Tomko's abilities.

Did Luther even have a character as Horshu? All I ever noticed about him in WCW was that that was the shape of his haircut.

Indeed. He was able to show some character in the indies, but basically, just being Matt Wiese is a bizarre gimmick in itself. Once, when I was working backstage at a UPW show while injured, he grabbed my cane and began to curl it, with me still attached.

This has been driving me crazy: Wasn't "Luther Reigns" the name of the largish indy wrestler who dressed all in white? He made a short -- and I mean, short -- stint in the WWF before he almost killed himself in a fiery table-spot on the west coast at an indy show.

I think you're referring to Vic Grimes, there.

Rumor has it that a house show audience heard his name and started chanting horsesh*t. So they changed it Luther Reigns. May be it ture and may be it's crap but I'd rather have Luther than hearing hoursesh*t all over my TV. Though it would be funny.

Well, I guess they could just turn Luther into a wacky face and have him start referring to himself as the 'Luuuuuu'.
