"Australia's Courier Mail had an article yesterday talking about how WWE was using footage of former Queensland premier Wayne Goss to promote the arrival of Nathan Jones. The story talked about how WWE was using video clips where Jones, who was convicted of armed robbery in 1989 and spent a total of eight years in prison, was referred to in news reels by his nickname of "The Colossus of Boggo Road". The story also wrote that Jones "initially won fame for ripping cell doors off their hinges and snapping handcuffs. It once took 10 prison guards to restrain him when he went berserk in Hobart's Risdon jail, where a political scandal was created after it was revealed gas was often used to subdue him." Sounds like the kind of guy I would want to share a locker room with! The paper also reported that he has had his visa revoked in the past "because of his violent past and self-confessed steroid abuse"."

Hey look, a wrestler that's a bigger criminal than the owner, how about that.

Can we get Bob Holly to try and stiff him in the ring?

Somehow I don't think anyone backstage will be bitching about the push Nathan Jones gets.

I'm surprised old 1bob didn't suggest all these guys with a police record get together and form a stable...

Tazz: Arrested for indecent exposure.
Paul Wright: Also for indecent exposure.
Booker T: Armed robbery.
Ahmed Johnson: Prostitution and possession.
Jake Roberts: Deadbeat father who doesn't pay child support.
Jim Duggan: Possession and DUI.
Brian Adams: Possession of drugs AND unregistered firearms.
Scott Steiner: Assault and Battery.
Scott Hall: VANDALISM!(Yep, that's all, just vandalism is all I found on him...)
Jerry Lawler: Alleged vehicular battery.

I think there are more too, but I don't feel like looking any more.

Hall didn't get charged for groping the granny? Lawler was accused of statutory rape but got cleared.

Booker T's armed robbery was of Wendy's so he gets a pass. LOL

Oh my God, you mean Nathan Jones actually is a convicted felon? I thought that was just a gimmick.

Eight years for armed robbery....damn. Where's the Boss Man when you need him?

Well I'm not one to believe a criminal can't reform, but hopefully this is a greater chance of him getting fired based on temper problems.

Either way Vince has fucking lost it. Hopefully he stays away from Jeff Hardy or !O_o!

Well I think the "admitted steroid abuse" bit sure explains a lot.

What bothers me more about Nathan is he looks like a really pissed off Peter Garrett.

Maybe he'll come out to a hard rock version of "Beds are Burning."

Will anyone volunteer to room with this guy on the road? I think as a locker room leader this responsibilty should fall on the shoulders of Taker.
Also, if the Matt Hardy/Shannon Moore relationship doesn't end with Moore running to Jones for protection and becoming his prag, I will be disappointed. Done right and this angle could turn Shannon Moore into one of the most sympathetic figures in WWF/E history by the end of the summer.

Please help control the McMahon population. Have your Triple H's spayed or neutered.

Wasn't he picked up on a DUI not too long ago? Like within the last two years?

I'm fairly certain he was.

And of course you forgot the net's favorite criminal, Steve Austin.

Has anyone seen WWA? (crickets sound). No? The guy is an absolute stiff in the ring. Oh boy, another Test, that's all the WWE needs.

They could make him out to be (and it looks like they are) what Scott Steiner was SUPPOSED to be- a raging maniac who could snap on anyone, anytime.

I can't wait for J.R. to refer to him as "the hoss from Boggo Road!"

Put me along side Big Bad in thinking this was all a work. What The Hell!? This is a shoot (eww bad choice of words in this case, sorry) gimmick.

Does WWE want to bring in unstable elements into their lockerroom so we can have a unforeseen unfortunate happening backstage.

G'day indeed.

Oh they have the internet on computers now!

I worked with Jones for about 6-7 months in UPW. Whatever his problems were, he's put 'em behind him. He was always eager to please, ,and would do anything anybody asked him to. When I was building lighting rigs, we always used Nate to judge whether it was high enough, since he was the tallest there.

Seriously, EVERY time I try to get hyped about any new potential I get this shit. Great, now we will get a menage a trios with Crocodile Druggie, HHH and Steiner blowing a hot water bottle with Ken Patera on a pole.

Bossman and Dan Spivey should do a run in and kick the shit out of him when he debuts. I would mark out for that. How sad is that?

Scott Hall's DUI charge was dropped, same with the granny groping. Lawler's statutory rape charge was dropped also so really, why bother mentioning them. Austin's record has been touched on MANY times on the boards, so why bother mentioning them again.

I'm surprised no one has made a Ahmed Johnson/Prostitution joke here yet, this could be bigger then the 'Helmsley holding _______ down' jokes.

At this weekend's house shows, Jones defeated Matt Hardy.

I read somewhere that Jones is going to wrestle Benoit at this weekend's Smackdown house shows.

As far as I'm concerned, if the WWE were to actually pull the trigger on a Bradshaw DVD like you all so cleverly suggested, it should be *at least* four or five discs. Anything less would not do his legendary career justice. Well, let's see...
