For the past couple years, the folks over at TNA Impact Wrestling have featured NFL players in their wrestling events.
This year, New York Giants defensive-end Jason Pierre-Paul was asked to do so but declined the offer at the last minute. TNA found a replacement for JPP in Giants running back Brandon Jacobs:
Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com reports that Jacobs will step into the ring during a TNA Wrestling taping. The appearance will air Thursday night on Spike TV.When the video of the pseudo-match is released, we will post it on the site.
Jacobs will apparently confront wrestler Kurt Angle in something that stops short of a full-scale wrestling match.
