Titans to Put a Chokehold on Pacman’s Wrestling Deal August 10, 2007Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports.
Just days after Pacman Jones signed with TNA Wrestling, the Tennessee Titans are attempting to file a restraining order that would prohibit Pacman from ever participating in the ring.
Lawyers from both sides are to meet on Friday, and reach a deal determining if Jones will be able to wrestle. Jones is scheduled to make an appearance for TNA on Sunday, but it has not yet been confirmed if he is scheduled to wrestle.
Technically, Jones should have never been able to sign the deal with TNA because it violates his contract. Every player in the NFL is prohibited from engaging in an activity that can cause possible injury.
If the restraining order is put into effect, it would bar Jones from participating in any TNA event. This includes appearing as a spectator, commentator, or participant.
I was really curious to see if the NFL was going to allow Pacman to do this. By allowing him to wrestle, it not only puts his career in jeopardy, but also makes a mockery of his year long supsension given by the NFL. I hope Pacman understands why his decision to wrestle isn’t a good idea, and doesn’t try to fight this. But, when dealing with someone like Pacman, this could become a wrestling match all in its own.
