Gotta Love a Gimmick - Drew Carey in the Royal Rumble

You might know him from his former sitcom, or from his current job as host of the Price is Right, but did you know that Drew Carey once wrestled? Because he did...sort of.

In the 2001 Royal Rumble, Drew Carey entered fifth. After the Hardy Boys eliminated each other, Carey stood alone in the ring, and the audience cheered. But then Kane came in and, after Drew tried to shake his hand and bribe him with money, began the motions for a vicious chokeslam. Just then, however, Raven entered and attacked Kane from behind. Drew then stepped over the top rope and exited, eliminating himself from the Rumble. He then gave all the fans high fives on his way to the locker room.

So not much of a "wrestling" career since he never actually hit anybody, but i know I'd love to be in a Royal Rumble, so kudos to Drew.
