Boxing fans understood Floyd Mayweather needed some time off after his win over Oscar DelaHoya back in December. Afterall, he hasn’t taken off an extended period of time since he turned pro back in 1996.
We expected him to possibly do some more reality television and further develop his rap label. That would allow his bad hands to heal before his next big fight. Miguel Cotto, the top fighter at 147, is clearly the guy Floyd should fight.
Not so fast my friend. First, we hear Floyd and Oscar are going to try and scam another 49.99 from the public in September. And now Mayweather is entering the land of make-believe, WWE.
Mayweather made an appearance at WWE’s Las Vegas PPV event, No Way Out, and began a fued with The Big Show. The scene was laughable with the 5-foot-7, 160 pound Mayweather standing at the chest of the 7-foot-2, 440 pound Big Show.
The wrestler, who’s real name is Paul Wight, then mocked Mayweather by getting down on his knees.
WWE may be fake in a lot of ways but let’s give Wight credit…he then allowed Floyd to punch him in the face several times drawing blood from his nose (WATCH THE VIDEO HERE). I guess Floyd’s hands aren’t too fragile to bare-knuckle blast Wight’s huge dome.
Mayweather supposedly broke Wight’s nose. Next up appears to be an appearance at Wrestlemania 24 in Orlando. Floyd will team up with Rey Mysterio Jr. in a tag-team match against The Big Show and a mystery partner.
You’ll remember Mysterio is one of the many WWE stars linked to steroids.
This from SI:
David Wilbirt, an Arizona doctor, was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Agency from 2001 to 2005 for allegedly writing 3,879 prescriptions between November 2004 and April 2005, all for “patients” who had requested drugs over the Internet. His name came up in conjunction with Kurt Angle, a 1996 Olympic gold-medal-winning freestyle wrestler and now a star professional wrestler who allegedly received two prescriptions for trenbolone and one for nandrolone between October 2004 and February ’05.
According to the official documents we reviewed, Wilbirt was billed for HCG and the steroid stanozolol that were sent to WWE star Eddie Guerrero in early 2005. Wilbirt also allegedly issued prescriptions for the steroids nandrolone and stanozolol to Oscar Gutierrez, whose stage name is Rey Mysterio.
