Everyone Welcome Freddie Prinze Jr. To The World Of "Sports"

Thursday, July 31, 2008

I have to admit that I check in on the WWE from time to time. I'm no expert, and I'm not even sure who's champ at the moment (according to Google some guy named CM Punk), but the business side of it intrigues me. Well how about this for a business decision? Actor, and husband to Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. has been hired by the WWE to be a storyline writer for the Sports Entertainment behemoth....

Freddie Prinze, Jr., a long-time fan of World Wrestling Entertainment(R), has joined WWE(R)'s creative team. Prinze, Jr. will now have a behind-the-scenes role contributing to USA Network's ratings powerhouse, WWE Monday Night RAW, as well as WWE's weekly television and pay-per-view programs.

"Bringing on board an experienced Hollywood writer, actor and producer like Freddie Prinze, Jr. will only increase the level of entertainment to millions of viewers and passionate WWE fans every Monday on USA," said Chris McCumber, Executive Vice President Marketing Digital & Brand Strategy, USA Network."

"Freddie Prinze, Jr.'s passion, energy and creativity make him an excellent fit for WWE," said WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
How random is that? It must be nice to be able to work wherever you want to. I also promise Vince McMahon that if he gets Freddie into a storyline, I'll start watching on a regular basis again. The guy has certainly been in some crap movies but he's also been on Robot Chicken and Boston Legal recently.

Maybe he can script yet another WWE wedding. They tend to do at least one a year and the only one that was ever halfway entertaining was when Triple H drugged Vince's daughter and took her to a drive-thru chapel in Vegas.

Guess Vince is healed from that freak "accident" a few weeks back.

This sounds like something that The Onion would make up. I can't believe that it's real.

Just another reason why I won't go back to watching the product.

This is the kind of thing that killed WCW.
