I was watching Nitro with my roommate's girlfriend a couple of months ago. The 'Wunderkind' is in the ring beating the smack out of some nobody when she pipes up "Holy shit, get that guy a cup or something!!"Well, Ben, that's an interesting question. If you ask the religious right, they believe that sexual orientation is something that can be 'fixed', thus, in your case, could possibly have been 'broken'. However, if you ask a liberal, they would probably see it's been with you since birth, and it was just the narrow-mindedness of your peers that wouldn't allow you to recognize it until now. I vote for the first explanation because I know that the horror of dating me made a few women turn gay, so theoretically the studliness of Alex Wright might have the opposite effect on straight men.
Since then we make it a point to check out the Wunderpackage everytime. And yes, it always appears to be recently 'fluffed.'
Does this make me gay?
I was watching WCW Worldwide and Lee Marshall during an Interview with Alex Wright announced WCW is having a show at the Goodwill Games next Sunday, July 26th. No word if it is telelvised but it does start at 3:00 p.m.
Matches announced were Goldberg vs Curt Hennig, Chris Jericho vs Dean Malenko and Alex Wright vs Disco Inferno. I thought this was an interesting news bit.
Whenever I heard people mention the man who plays Kane (Glenn Jacobs), I always thought his name sounded familiar. And then I was surfing my university's website and came across this article from the athletic department's newsletter:Pro Wrestling Unlikely Home For Former Bulldog Two-Sport AthleteThe thing I was wondering is if on Parents Day, did Paul Bearer ever come up to visit?
Former basketball and football player Glenn Jacobs (1988-90), who signed a free-agent contract with the Chicago Bears in 1991, can be seen nearly every week on television as a pro wrestler. Jacobs first came on the pro-wrestling scene in the summer of 1995 as Isaac Yankem in the World Wrestling Federation. That year, he participated in the federation's two big pay-per views. After a character change in early 1996, Jacobs emerged as 'The New Diesel' a character based on the WWF's most popular wrestler in the 90s.
Following a brief stint as 'The New Diesel', Jacobs again needed a character change. He was reintroduced to WWF fans in October, 1997 at a pay-per-view event in the St. Louis Kiel Center as 'Kane', the evil brother of The Undertaker.This current feud has given Jacobs the opportunity to be on television each week to more than 10 million viewers on USA Network's 'Monday Night Raw.' He participated this past March in the WWF's 'Wrestlemania XIV' at the Fleet Center in Boston. At Wrestlemania XIV, Jacobs chokeslammed baseball great, Pete Rose, after Rose made derogatory remarks about the Boston Red Sox.
His current angle as 'Kane' is receiving good fan reaction and should get a huge push in the WWF throughout the rest of 1998. Alumni may not recognize Jacobs in his current role, as he wears a mask as part of his act.
