But did you know that Jason Hervey (the man who played Wayne) got into the wrestling business? It's a weird story. I saw a video on Youtube where he's at a WCW Nitro taping ringing the bell to start the match. He was just like a "celebrity" guest. He was still in his Wonder Years days at the time. Maybe 15 years old.
But it was this appearance where he began his friendship with Eric Bischoff. It wasn't long before Hervey (a Jew, by the way) got a job at WCW. He was part of the creative team. His big creation was the Latino World Order.
The Ultimate Warrior had a funny moment in an interview where he shits on the whole Latino World Order thing. It was indeed a terrible idea.
But it didn't end there. Hervey and Bischoff formed a production company and created such shows as Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling. It lasted one season and involved z-list celebrities "wrestling".
Speaking of wrestling, you remember that big World of Sports revival from last year? There was talk that it was going to turn into an ongoing, weekly television show. They even got Jim Ross as a commentator.
Nothing came of it. It was just a one off. From what I read, everyone thought it was a good show. I wanted to watch it but my ladyfriend was here. I might have seen a bit of it on Youtube or something.
I got a reply from my sister yesterday so I had to rush to buy gifts for her kids. I got a stuffed monkey and bought a bunch of food for the older niece. Not a bad selection, really. I later looked at professional Scottish food hampers and I bought much of the same stuff.
Those Christmas hampers are a weird British thing. They almost always have alcohol too. That's probably why they're popular. But why not just buy alcohol? It would surely be cheaper to buy all of this shit separately too. It's baffling. Caters to lazy, stupid, drunks, which I guess is a pretty big segment of the UK population.
