found this at Newsaskew.com..

Professional wrestler Rob Van Dam did an interview is this month's issue of Wizard Magazine (#142). He's the writer of an upcoming series called "Twisted Perception." In addition to this, he's opening Rob Van Dam's Five Star Comics in LA. So they couldn't resist asking:
WIZARD: Kevin Smith owns a comic book store. Who'd win if you two fought?
RVD: I could take Jay and Silent Bob on at the same time and kick their asses. And then steal their stash.

-hehe...He wouldn't stand a chance against the Hemp Knight and the Boy Blunter



*sigh* Why bother?

Awesome!!! RVD's a comic nerd! WHEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

... Makes me feel more confident if I ever make it...

I wonder if they play D&D in the locker room? If not, that's something I'm so totally going to start! Playing with Angle would be a ball...

First off, you need to check out this link:
http://www.scoopthis.com/pages/article.cgi?file=wrestletales/005_wrestletales.htm

That'll illustrate what happens.

Secondly, most of the WWE wrestlers that I've met through UPW seem to be comic geeks. The only one who was adamantly NOT one was Christian.




As the days go by, we face the increasing inevitability that we are alone in a godless, uninhabited, hostile and meaningless universe. Still, you've got to laugh, haven't you?

That's surprising about Christian. Based on how he acts on TV and his sense of humor and stuff you'd think he would be a comic book fan.

Yeah, RVD is one of the better-known comic geeks (along with Raven, Al Snow, Edge, Hurricane...). RVD did a signing at our local mall last fall, then afterwards stopped by the comics store where my friends work and bought a few trade paperbacks.

Man, I should try to stop by his store. i'm sure he'll drop in by surprise on occassion.

on the subject of wrestlers who are comic book nerds, you guys might be interested in these pics of some WWE (then WWF) superstars hanging out at a Golden Apple:

These were taken around the time of the Invasion, I think.

Humorously, that's what others were thinking. We had a guy on staff who had connections with Graffitti (I think I spelled it wrong, they're the folks that make most of the comic shirts among other things) and he often tried to hook the WWE (and other outside guys at the time) up. Plus, a lot of comic geeks among the boys and crew. When it was being brought up to Christian, he was slowly getting miffed, until he widely announced "I don't like comics! Talk to Edge!"

Edge was more than willing to get swag. =)

that was pretty much Kanyon's gimmick for a while in WCW.. though while i like Chuck, i doubt he is the "innovator" that Kanyon was/is..
