And he won, too! Half the ring was surrounded by serious NFL talent (including the incomparable Reggie White, Carl Banks and others) , the other by serious WWF talent (including the incomparable Tatanka, Ted DiBiase and others).
God I miss my childhood.
I'm actually really confused as to why Goodell and the Titans are having such a problem with this situation, though. AJ Pierzynski won a belt from TNA for something, and his manager Ozzie Guillen hit some guy with a chair at training camp ... Kevin Green, the great Steelers and Panthers linebacker, was a guest-referee for a match and "sacked" somebody. How did David Stern not shit himself when Dennis Rodman and Karl Malone fought in WCW? Brian Urlacher, Johnny Damon and David Eckstein all did little guest-spots with TNA over the past few years, and were met with little more than giggles from their teammates for their involvement in something so ridiculous.
Lest we forget, one of the greatest boxers of all-time, "Iron" Mike Tyson, was involved with the WWF a few years ago, sucker-punching Shawn Michaels and helping "Stone Cold" Steve Austin get the win. Former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar almost made the Minnesota Vikings roster a few years ago. Former WCW and WWE Champion Bill Goldberg was an Atlanta Falcon for a few seasons. Former WWE Champion The Rock was a highly-recruited U of Miami defensive tackle (before Warren Sapp came in and pushed him out of the way).
What if Roger Goodell is keeping Jones from his true calling? What if Jones' destiny is to fly off the top rope and hit Sting with "The Rainmaker?" What if the Titans front office is actually planning some kind of pay-per-view with all their old players who wrestle now (Frank Wychek and Kyle Van Der Bosch have both wrestled professionally ...)?
Let the guy wrestle. I really just want to see him power-bomb Marvin Harrison in his first game back. Plus, he's going to fill out a pair of tights really nicely ...
