Weekly Hypothetical: Turn One Current or Former STL Athlete into a WWE Character
Last night, the wrestling hotbed known as St. Louis played host to a historic 1,000th episode of WWE Raw. That’s 1,000 nights filled with shirtless, sweaty men pandering to an arena filled with thousands of equally sweaty men who scream relentlessly when two of them decide to roll around on a canvas mat together. In other words, it’s fantastic.
The storytellers that ply their craft in the WWE know no creative bounds when it comes to building characters and the story arcs that make them so damn entertaining. A homoerotic transexual painted gold from head to toe? Done that. A guy who claims to be a genius and reads poetry off of frisbees? Yep. An evil clown? Check that off the list too.
But as creative as the WWE is, we’re still certain that JSF readers can toss in a few nuggets to help them come up with the next big thing. Especially when we’re talking St. Louis athletes. That leads up to the Weekly Hypothetical:
Let’s do it.
With Raw coming to St. Louis for their 1,000 episode earlier this week, you have been invited to a private meeting with Vince McMahon in which you are granted the authority to choose one current/former STL athlete to become a WWE character. Per his requirements, we need a character name, outfit description, and a signature wrestling move for consideration.
Who do you go with?
