Patriots fans have probably already erased Bart Scott's wrestling-like promo that ran after the Jets eliminated the Patriots from the playoffs from their memories.
We half expected the Ultimate Warrior to run out in the middle of the interview and challenge Scott to a match at Wrestlemania. Apparently lil' Barty was just warming up for some "real" wrestling.
Bart Scott recently started doing some "work" for a little wrestling company called Total Nonstop Action, or TNA for short. Former Olmypic gold medalist and current TNA performer Kurt Angle is from Pittsburgh and Bart Scott came down to start some trouble with Kurt!
The storylines write themselves.
It was a poorly executed promo, complete with the expected bad acting, bad fight scene and fake injury to Scott. Brilliant.
The funny part is the wrestling world and the real life Jets actually are not that far apart. Rex Ryan is always cutting promos about how his team is the best and guaranteeing Super Bowl wins (he's 0-2 on those guarantees so far) and Bart Scott has threatened to end careers.
Maybe the two worlds should merge. It would give everybody something to do if there's a lockout.
Rex Ryan would be in the ring cutting a promo:
Then Belichick's music would hit and he'd storm into the ring and the fight would be on:
Oh no! The bigger, fatter Rex Ryan has Bill in a chokehold!
But Belichick reverses the move and slams Fatty McFatfat!
He goes for the cover.... 1....2....3!!!!! It is over!
The next day Bart Scott would start running his mouth about how Belichick's victory was a fluke and how he was going to take it out on Wes Welker. He'd say Wes Welker's days in a uniform are numbered after Welker makes several foot fetish comments towards Rex Ryan.
Then the lights would go off. When the lights come back on Welker would be standing behind Scott. As Scott turns around, Welker kicks him in the stomach and then gives Scott a vicious Welker Stunner!
Welker puts Scott over his head and readies him for the Welker Slam!
Bart Scott has to be carried from the ring after the brutal beating Welker dishes out:
Welker is cracking a few cold ones back in the ring in celebration!
You know, maybe this football-wrestling merger needs to happen. This scenario is infinitely better than the lame smack talk and slap fights current NFL players get in. If only.
