NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Adam "Pacman" Jones can call himself a
pro wrestling tag team world champion, even though his only
wrestling move was to cover a wrestler knocked out by someone else.
The suspended Tennessee cornerback has a legal agreement with
the Titans to avoid any physical move that could leave him injured.
So Jones left the dirty work to tag team partner Ron "The Truth"
Killings in TNA Wrestling's "No Surrender" pay-per-view Sunday
night against Kurt Angle and Sting.
Jones twice refused to tag in and join the staged match.
The turning point came when Angle's wife appeared ringside,
refused to leave and then slapped Sting. She went down as if hit
when the wrestler pointed for her to leave, and her husband came
over to investigate.
By the time Jones finally tagged in and got into the ring, Angle
put a move on Sting that allowed Jones to cover the wrestler for
TNA wasted no time promoting the victory, putting a picture of
Jones and Killings with their championship belts on its Web site.
Jones was suspended for the 2007 season in April for violating
the NFL's personal conduct policy. His case won't be reviewed until
after the Titans' 10th game on Nov. 19. He has two felony coercion
charges pending against him in Las Vegas for a strip club fight and
triple-shooting on Feb. 19.
TNA, which stands for Total Nonstop Action, is a Nashville-based
pro wrestling league.
