[quote="Steve Lentz"][quote="Duane Sampson"]-- Pacman Signs with TNA Wrestling -- Mon Aug 6, 2007 The Nashville Tennessean reports suspended Titans CB Pacman Jones has signed a contract with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, and he's expected to make numerous appearances as part of the deal, USA Today reported in today's editions. TNA is expected to make an official announcement today. Jones' first TNA appearance is Thursday (Spike TV, 8 p.m.), and his first match is reported to be no later than TNA's No Surrender pay-per-view on Sept. 9 in Orlando. The Titans open the regular season Sept. 9 in Jacksonville. Jones was quoted as saying that wrestling is "something to do, to keep me out of the streets while I have my little off-time from my real job, and, I'm a big fan of wrestling, so I wanted to give it a try." "I think wrestling is a great sport,'' he said. "You don't really give (wrestling) much (credit) until you get in (the ring) and try it.'' Plus, "it will help get my mind off a lot of stuff that I'm going through. It's sort of a way to relieve some stress.'' NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, in Nashville on Saturday, was asked about Jones' potential involvement in professional wrestling. "I haven't focused on that,'' he said. "He's going to have to determine what's in his best interest in the short term.'' Attorney Worrick Robinson, who represents Jones, said Sunday night he expects TNA to make a formal announcement today "regarding the relationship (Jones) has agreed to with TNA." Robinson repeatedly has said Jones won't be wrestling, although he could be in the ring with a role that would include him in the action. [/quote] Just another clown in the big carnival. Certainly no Crusher or Hulk. :lol:[/quote] He didnt even sign with the heavyweight promotion. I am a pro wrestling fan and TNA is an upstart promotion that is operating in the hopes of competing with the WWE. Honestly, it almost feels like a desperation move by that company to sign Pacman, in the hopes it gets people to watch. Whatever.
