This is the 79th installment of the ‘Wrestling with Sin‘ series. A group of stories that delves into the darker, underbelly of pro wrestling. Many of the stories involves such subjects as sex, drugs, greed and in some cases even murder! As with every single story in the Sin series…I do not condone or condemn the alleged participants. We simply retell their stories by researching interviews, newspapers, magazines and various other sources of media.
Are You Smarter Than A 4th Grader?
Back in 1987, while the WWF was in Miami, Florida for a show, physical confrontation occurred between a fan and a wrestler. The thing was, the fan was a nine year old 4th grader and the wrestler was ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage. According to the 4th grader’s parents, their son wanted to give a high five to Savage as he walked down the aisle. That is when Savage turned around and punched their son in the stomach.
The boy went to the hospital for treatment and had a welt on his torso. The WWF insisted there was no proof that the Macho Man did anything wrong. A security guard who worked the show said that the boy tried to touch Miss Elizabeth’s hair and when he reached out to touch her and Savage turned around and jabbed the 4th grader in the stomach. No word of how this turned out from a legal perspective if anything at all.
Charlie Williams was a professional wrestling out of the Mississippi area back in the 1980’s. His ring name was Charlie Boo and he teamed with a wrestler named Greg Hawkes as the ‘Mississippi Blondes.’ Fast forward to 2016 and Charlie Williams is now working as a cab driver to make ends meet in Tupelo, Mississippi. One night, a group of bikers see a body laying on the road and it turns out to be the body of Charlie Williams.
Police say he was shot in the back of his head and his cab was stolen. Police did recover the abandoned cab in another town, but so far, no arrests have been made in the murder of Charlie Williams.
You’re Watching Fox
An independent wrestler named AR Fox was involved in a scandal several years ago. It all happened after it came to light that Fox had allegedly filmed and participated in a gay porn. It is alleged that Fox worked for a company called “Thugbait” and he made at least one gay/bi video with that company.
According to some, the reason AR Fox did the porn was because he was young and homeless sleeping on park benches while he was trying to make it as a pro wrestler. While Fox has had a lot of success on the indy scene through the years, many feel he will never get hired by the WWE because of his past.
I can’t get no…Stratusfaction?
Chalk this one up right now as strictly rumor and urban legend but for several years, it was rumored that now former WWE ring announcer and WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus were once “more than friends.” I remember the story vividly, it all allegedly took place back in 2000, when both Lillian and Trish were still relatively new to the WWE.
Both were apparently spotted at an appearance together and holding hands. Not a big deal at all, but then rumors started to swirl that they were spotted kissing at a club not long after that. Considering the different climate back in 2000, it was allegedly not looked upon positively by the male dominated locker room and both were ostracized for the alleged affair.
To further fuel those rumors, The Rock once conducted an interview with Lillian Garcia on Smackdown. In the interview, the Rock said he knew Garcia “liked pie.” As Rock fans know, pie meant vagina in Rock code.
The couple allegedly split up due to pressure from management but still remained good friends. Personally, it doesn’t matter one way or the other if those rumors were true or not. I have my doubts, but I’ll let everyone else decide for themselves.
