The Baltimore Sun’s Kevin Eck reports Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis confirmed that he was scheduled to wrestle in a TNA event on June 17th of this year. It was first reported in the Wrestling Observer which also noted that he was supposed to wrestle for the WWE in 2001.
Lewis was supposed to tag team with James Storm against Jerry Lynn (girl’s name) and former Maryland Terps/Tennessee Titans TE Frank Wycheck (two concussions short of Merrill Hoge). He backed out three days before the event without giving a reason. If he had gone through with it, Lewis was supposed to turn on Storm and help Wycheck win the match. Someone by the name of Ron Killings took Lewis’ place. How appropriate.
I can see it now. “From parts unknown at the U, Stabbin’ Blacula!!!” Lewis comes out dressed like Blacula with a purple cape and carry a carving knife. Mr. Fuji and Virgil would be so proud.
If you’re still wondering what happened in the match, let’s go to the tape. You gotta love 4:35 where they do a Jeremy Shockey imitation in a Titans helmet.
By the way, the ‘Skins never should have cut Wycheck.
