The obscenity case against former XPW owner Rob Black and (insanely hot) wife Lizzie Borden was thrown out, according to Meltzer Score one for the 1st Amendment, which protects even the sleaziest, scuzziest of us all.
As a former worker and current non-wrestling fan (both coincide), and more importatntly, someone who follows the Politics page on the W moreso than Wrestling, I do have to say good for Rob Black. While there are many who might feel that he is a scumbag, the first amendment does indeed protect scumbags.
Also, I do hope this doesn't turn into a "Lizzie Borden is hot or not" thread, as it would detract from the more pertinent topic. Attractiveness is HIGHLY subjective, remember, and to put that in a more anecdotal way, one man's trash is another man's treasure.
Hold nothing sacred and you'll never be dissapointed. Especially not this statement.

(Thankfully) No. Black lost too much money doing it. The people who worked beside him in XPW recently started up a new company of mediocre garbage wrestling.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Originally posted by CerebusOk, refresh my memory... wasn't this the company that also put out the pseudo-rape, almost kiddie-porn videos, and was selling them along side the wrestling stuff at the shows?
...and THAT'S covered by the First Amendment?
Pseudo rape is not rape, almost kiddie porn isnt kiddie porn. Yep protected 'speech'. Seems fucked up and in bad taste, but, there must be a market for it.
BTW, Borden is far from hot. Skanky might be a better term.
I don't think it's the Hat Guy brought up earlier in this thread; that guy was almost exclusively an ECW fan (although he sometimes showed up for televised WWF/E/whatever events in Philly), and I don't recall him ever bringing signs.
