Tom Fordy on the murder of Bruiser Brody by José González:
Mantel has claimed the police weren’t taking his story seriously right from the start — and thought it was just another crazy wrestling angle.
Crazy doesn’t even begin to describe everyone involved.

Thank God for photographic memory, because what I did then right before I went up — I literally, I’ve never been at a point where I thought I was gonna get so sick that I was about — I was like, ‘Bad time for a joke.’ And they’re like, ‘No, no, no Kevin Dunn does not like, this is not boxing, you can’t.’ But I’m like, ‘But I don’t know anybody here and now I gotta know their weights, and their towns, what type of match it is, and if they hold the title?’
Sounds like a fun place to work!

I don’t know if “best of both worlds” is how I’d put it.

DDP Yoga is no joke, apparently.
