Maybe it’s just me but it seems like every childhood hero of mine has become a laughing-stock. From Jose Canseco to Hulk Hogan, it appears very few athletes can find a way to retire and stay away from the limelight.
I won’t even go into what a joke Jose has become because we’ve all seen him spend time in prison, appear in women’s lingerie on VH1’s Surreal Life, and most recently get knocked out by complete bums in the “celebrity” boxing scene.
Recently, the just-vindicated Mike Tyson made headlines for beating a paparazzi within an inch of his life (thank you, Mike). Unfortunately, this little incident might lead to Iron Mike spending even more time in prison since he’s currently on probation.
A couple of days ago, everyone went crazy when news broke that ancient, imminent heart attack victim, Ric Flair, got into a fight at a press conference with half-cripple, Hulk Hogan. Much like everything else in wrestling, the whole thing was fake.
In case you’re wondering, Hulk is going on tour to fight. Among other great names on his show will be Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, The Nasty Boys, and Val Venis. Oh, and Beckett’s favorite wrestler, Ric Flair.
