OK, if you haven’t already stopped reading after that headline, this is the first time I have submitted an actual blog post here. Some of you may know me from my random biting and sometimes irritating responses to posts. Or maybe from this.
My goal at Pax is to defend wrestling from all its haters in the world (including Father Scott). I was intitially going to be offering regular wrestling commentary but, a. it’s done to death online, and b. I’d kill readership. However, certain incidents that transpired last Thursday night led to the following clip, which needs to be seen by everyone.
Wrestling is awesome because, going beyond the “IT’S FAKE!” argument, it can be emotional (yeah I almost teared up when Ric Flair retired), scandalous (see WWE Diva Ashley Massaro accused in a prostitution bust that offered sex with playmates and porn stars for $25,000–don’t check my receipts), dangerous (see Mankind vs. Undertaker Hell in a Cell), and flat out hilarious.
As perfect evidence for the hilarity of wrestling, I present to you Math with Scott Steiner from TNA iMPACT! that aired last Thursday night (5/1) on Spike.
Quick background: Most people will know Steiner (or, Big Poppa Pump) from his WCW days. Now he’s in TNA, which rivals the WWE. He is fighting Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle in a Triple Threat match at the next TNA pay-per-view, Sacrifice. The guy who looks like Steiner is Petey Wiliams, formerly “Maple Leaf Muscle” who was taken under Steiner’s wing and is now dubbed “Little Petey Pump.” The tall girl in the background is Steiner’s most recent Freak, and the smokin’ blonde is Lauren, new TNA interview girl.
Kids, don’t do steroids. It wil make you do math like this:
