More details on Bart Scott’s wrestling adventure

BenJarvus Green-Ellis, David Harris, Sione Pouha, Bart Scott

To summarize, we reported Monday that Jets linebacker Bart Scott engages in “wrestling moves and simulated violence” during a TNA wrestling appearance that presumably was supposed to feature only talking.  The Jets declined comment.  Scott’s agent, Harold Lewis, told Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com that, emphatically, Bart “was not wrestling!

“He was only the bodyguard for some small, helpless guy named Hulk Hogan,” Lewis insisted.  “It was nothing more than an appearance.”

A source with knowledge of the situation reiterates that Scott was indeed wrestling.

We’re told that, during the show that will air on Spike TV at 9:00 p.m. ET Thursday (thanks for cutting into our Office time), Scott is placed in an ankle lock.  He also tackles another wrestler on concrete in the tunnel leading to the ring, though it’s not clear whether that incident will be broadcast on March 3 or March 10.

Either way, we’re told that Scott indeed wrestles, and that his camp placed no limitations on what he would or wouldn’t do.

    If it helps The Office is a rerun this week and they are showing six consecutive Office episodes that night.

    Riveting news story.

    The most important thing I took out of it is that you still watch a show that has clearly jumped the shark.

    Don’t worry Mike, The Office is in repeats until March 24th.

    It’s not real wrestling anyway. I hate all that fake crap.

    Again, the ankle lock is a move where a guy grabs your leg and fake turns it.

    That doesn’t count.
