Yeah yeah a hairless muscular man grappling other hairless muscular men in a leathery ring surrounded by ropes is really the yardstick of heterosexuality.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: MagSeven: blindio: On your tax forms you write "Professional Wrestler", you're already identifying yourself at the bottom 1/64th of the evolutionary ladder.   Chances are you're a roid monster with the IQ only a banana would be jealous of, but you can't actually fight worth a crap and couldn't make it in MMA.  Oil yourself up, squeeze into your speedo, and get to your job where you hug men for the entertainment of a audience full of redneck idiots.  If anyone ever wanted to actually hear your idiotic opinion chances are you wouldn't have ended up in such a ridiculous profession.

But really, some of these guys are legitimate bad asses. Jericho, Lesnar, Shamrock, Haku, Andre, Punk... Actually most of them are legitimate bad asses!

Leaner got his ass handed to him in the UFC. He's far from a legitimate badass.


Right, being UFC Heavyweight champion sucks.

Way I hear it, he's already in damage control mode.  Supposedly apologized then deleted his own twitter feed.

/Have a guy at the office who keeps up with wrestling.
//not a redneck, just poor taste in "so bad it's good" entertainment.

Briscoe's tweet, and entire Twitter account, have since been deleted. ROH issued the following statement in response to Briscoe's remarks:

Ring of Honor Wrestling respects and appreciates every fan regardless of age, gender, race, religion or sexual preference. The recent post by Jay Briscoe does not represent the views or opinions of Ring of Honor Wrestling, its owners, management or employees.
ROH sent out another statement moments ago noting that Briscoe will issue a public apology and donate his pay from the next two ROH events to the Partners Against Hate charitable organization:

Jay Briscoe would like to again express his sincerest apologies and regrets to all, especially his young fans, for his recent hateful twitter comment. Ring of Honor has insisted that Jay also make a public apology at the Ring of Honor event this Saturday night. Jay will address the public during the event.
In addition to this apology, Ring of Honor and Jay have agreed that he will donate his full pay from the next two Ring of Honor events to the Partners Against Hate charitable organization. Partners Against Hate was created to help prevent, deter, and reduce juvenile hate-related behavior.

FTA:

CageSideSeats.com states:

However, even if he wasn't the Ring of Honor World Champion, Jay Briscoe's latest homophobic outburst on Twitter should not only embarrass ROH management, but also the whole wrestling industry. It's one thing to politely disagree with gay marriage, quite another to say that you would commit acts of violence on anyone who teaches your children that it's OK.


No, ROH management will condone his statements, as they are owned by the good people at Sinclair Broadcast Group.

FirstNationalBastard: uncleacid: Meet Adrian Adonis.

That gimmick was a punishment for Adonis getting fat, and he STILL made it work.


Yep; a rarity of rarities.  Returned way out-of-shape, Vince punished him with this gimmick, still had a great feud with Piper.

FTFA: Slam! Wrestling, he would not get away with these comments if he wrestled in the WWE:
If a WWE wrestler made these statements, it would probably be pretty close to the end for them. Luckily for Briscoe, ROH is so far under the radar that he'll likely skate on these statements.


Sick burn.  Unfortunately I've heard of Ring of Honor wrestling, but I've never heard of Slam! Wrestling.  Sounds like a George Michael cover band.

Quantum Apostrophe: Yeah yeah a hairless muscular man oiled up and grappling other hairless muscular men in a leathery ring surrounded by ropes is really the yardstick of heterosexuality.

cman: I hope this wasnt an attempt to be a good heel.

If it was then WOW you really farked it up. If this was the 60s, you would have have no problem, because that is how heels acted back then. That was entertainment then. Prowrestling is very different now.



60s?

If it was the 80s, hell, 90s, he'd get away with it.

Adorable Adrian? Goldust?
