The suspended NFL player is headed to the 6-sided ring.
Late last week TNA Wrestling signed suspended Tennessee Titan cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones to a contract that will see the NFL star perform as a wrestler. Jones is currently suspended for the entire 2007 NFL season, without pay, for personal conduct problems off of the field. Under his suspension, Jones is not allowed to attend the Tennessee Titans' training camp. He is currently trying to get his suspension reduced to 10-games. Reportedly the Titans has no issue with Jones getting involved in professional wrestling.
Let's hope Vick isn't next after all is said and done with his court case.
What a terrible, terrible idea. And making him a face! Ingenious.
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
Somehow this thread actually managed to get stupider with each new post. People, please try harder to police yourselves. (kentish, actually going ahead and making TWO lame posts in this thread instead of just one deserves some special scorn.)
No joke, remembering Curt Henning and Brian Pillman, I clicked on this thread thinking the same thing. My mom has a friend in her sixties who loves wrestling too. I wonder why the senior ladies dig it so much?
