I always wondered if he was talking about Hendo.
Possibly. Wrestling is really all it's cracked up to be. When I was in high school, we had football stars who went on to be stars in college try to come in the wrestling room for a workout. I personally saw them break. It was hilarious to me that I was an average high school wrestler, witnessing our biggest stars not be able to handle it... it was that much cooler seeing them go onto what they did. I know thy're different sports... but still.
It may have been hendo, maybe not. Wrestling and MMA seems to attract a lot of people to the mat these days.
