Glenn "Disco Inferno" Gilberti: Illegal Gambling Operation Kurt Angle: DUI in Moon Township, Pennsylvania Some of them are minor. Some of them not. But it's pretty obvious that a lot of wrestlers appear to have trouble following the law. I'm really not sure why that is. It might be the same for other predominantly American related sports. But I'm unsure as I don't follow them. Anyway on to the topic. Wrestlers and you can include other sports and types of media into this, shouldn't be allowed to profit if they have criminal records. Be it a minor a major crime. Minor crimes like DUI's and err acting strangely (Thanks Sunny), are still crimes. I don't get drunk and drive home. I don't do it because I'm awar that it wrong, and that it will effect me. I've been aware of this for quite some time now. Probably since I was a child. Yet it appears as though a lot of wrestlers don't know about this law. Wait. They do know that law. They just chose to not abide by it. That is no excuse in my opinion. For their inability to do one little thing that is been asked of them. A minor thing if I do say so (the law, so easy to follow). I would impose a three strikes and you are out policy in wrestling. One strike equals one year away from the ring and any buisness associated with it. Two strikes equals two years away from the ring and associated intrests. Three strikes and you can no longer participate in professional wrestling on any level. I think you'd be surprised by how well behaved a lot of wrestlers would become. Now more serious crimes. In short. That is it. Your career is over. No more wrestling for you. And in the cases of Booker T & MVP, your career would never have got started under my wrestling law. Booker T: Armed robbery. MVP: Armed robbery and kidnapping. Why should people like that be allowed to profit greatly from being huge stars? Why should people like that gain fame and hero status because they're on TV? They may well be reformed. But they can be reformed in another profession. They need to go to school and work at something. They can profit from being great buisnessmen or something else. They can make money that way. But they shouldn't be allowed to do it via TV screens. Booker T is supposed to be a nice guy. It's great that he's turned his life around. But as far as I'm concerned, most of the world should never have heard of him, or watched him perform. It's my first column, bit rough. I didn't think about it much so I've probably rambled. I know my spelling is terrible. It's a real concern for me. I've just done one to see if I can get this section going.
