1wrestling.com has a story on their newsline about Jesse Ventura: The Music. I am still laughing. Check this out:
"While most people probably did not believe it at the time it was announced, work on the Broadway musical based on the life of Jesse Ventura is progressing, and once Ventura gives approval on a revised Act Two, and a final draft is created, the play will be one step closer to making it to the stage. Both the Associated Press and Reuters published articles about the show, with the AP quoting Ventura as saying "I wanted more gutty and gritty and we're starting to move that way. Instead of being milquetoast and G-rated we're starting to go for R-rated. Let's make it who I really am.''
A list of proposed songs for the play, which will have a hard rock sound to it, includes:
- Do You Like the Rolling Stones?
- The Heart is a Muscle
- You're Different
- Hooyah! (About his time as a Navy Seal)
- Take the World By Storm (Ventura telling his parents his dreams)
- I Don't Know the Meaning of Can't (Jesse at a press conference)
- Retaliate in '98 (Jesse at a political debate).
However, the song that most wrestling fans will be looking forward to (if it makes the final cut for the show) will be "Sign With Me", which will be sung by Vince McMahon as he lures Ventura into the WWF (the actor playing the role will sing, this won't be "Stand Back" part two) .
It will be interesting to see if the play, once completed, makes it to Broadway."
All I have to say is this could be the funniest thing I ever seen if they get it done.
I wish someone would write WWF Broadway show. Now that would be high comedy. Could imagine Kane and UT singing a heartfelt duet lamenting the loss of their parents?
If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.
---=---:---=--- [Look up a line] Wow, that belt looks like crap... I'll take it and carry it around for years and see if people can take it away from me... What? What was that? You mean even THIS belt doesn't matter! What? I'm insulted! Get away from me you... you... defiler!
What an awesome DVD... spent a good chunk of last night scanning through the extras (yeah, I know it was New Year's, but I'm officially too old to party now) -- it's just incredible.... the Harley Race-Ric Flair "press conference" is a must see.
