    Mmm… Soap.

    He’ll have to come back when the WWE introduces a team of suit-wearing wrestlers who claim to be lobbying for SOPA/CISPA.

  3. Oh, look. He’s a RON PAUL bot.

    The best part about this is that he was in  a stable called ‘right to censor’ for a short time which had the angle of wanting to purge all the filth from the WWF (this was before they changed their name). The idea was that a small group of people self appointed themselves to enforce their own ideology onto everyone else. Not related to copywrite, but same kind of thought process that they were right and didn’t care what anyone else thought.

    •  RON PAUL WINS OVER HEARTS AND MINDS TO THE CAUSE OF FREEDOM!!!! Plus, they were probably paying him better back then.

      What’s really, really funny is that before and since, his Val Venis persona is known as the world’s first professional wrestling porn star (complete with catch phrase “Hellllllloooo, Ladies,” and appropriately inappropriate bomp-chicka entrance music).

      Of course, since SOPA/PIPA would screw entertainment consumers on a previously unseen level, perhaps his Val Venis character resents the competition.

      Funnily enough, pro wrestlers take on fake personas as part of their act.  The more offensive, the better.

        funnily enough, most of us know that wrestlers aren’t the characters they portray.

          Funnily enough, the commenter to whom I responded doesn’t seem to have gotten that memo.

  5. There’s a man who is utilizing his notoriety and influence to stand out against an UNAMERICAN bill, to his parent company and the public at large. You dipwads just don’t get that!

      Sorry dude.  While I respect what he’s doing this guy hasn’t been revelant in the wrestling world for the past 20 years, give or take.  And even then he was hardly a main event superstar.
