– TMZ Sports did a story about WWE Superstar The Miz, along with several other celebrities such as Adam Devine and Iliza Shlesinger, spending Christmas over in the Middle East as part of a four-day USO tour. The Miz did various activities such as being boomeranged off the USS Theodore Roosevelt in a military plane:
“I’ve been on all kinds of rollercoasters and nothing beats this,” The Miz said. “I literally tell (Devine), ‘My balls are in my throat.'”
– The Guardian recently did an interview with former WWE Champion JBL to discuss his work with kids in Bermuda through Beyond Rugby Bermuda. Here’s some of what JBL had to say:
“I had seen the ethos of rugby and I was very much an admirer,” JBL said. “For us it’s a beautiful sport, what I guess what Pele called soccer in Brazil. It’s so simple, it’s easy to understand, you can play five on five or 15 on 15. I would be so much better coaching American football, but you need 22 on each side and all the equipment and everything. With rugby you just need a mouthpiece and grass.
“We have issues with gangs and with drugs in Bermuda but we want to attract the most hardcore kids. We want the gang leaders, because they’re going to be leaders either in a gang or on the rugby pitch. And we’ve had a lot of success. We have super-tough kids who grew up in super-tough environments and they enjoy getting out there and knocking each other around and having a piece of pizza and going home.”
