When you say "stuff like this", I assume you mean offended little bimbettes who flip out & publish stuff on the web, right? Which then gets picked up during a slow news day in Manitoba.
Here's the thing: She's (most certainly) not a "ring rat" at all. He's an idiot & had an actual affair with some chick half his age. He dumped her, she had a hissy-fit, & puked the details to as much of the world as social networking would allow. Some old guy got caught having an affair. Whoop-dee-doo.
I expect "ring rats" operate under exactly the same model as rock or any other sports' groupies. You go public, you're out of the game. All parties understand that this is not "a serious relationship". What happens on the road, stays on the road.
(Actually the most surprising thing to me about this story? Billy *isn't* actually gay??)
In case anyone is wondering what the former WCW referee is up to... http://www.necwwrestling.com/Profiles/Dickinson.htm I met the guy once and he seemed pretty nice. He had a program with Perry Saturn I believe.
