John, next time you're in L.A. please contact me. Although I am
outweighed by Pro Wrestlers by 30-50 lbs (I'm talking The Rock, HHH,
Mankind...) I will do the following to you in order.

1) Closeline
2) Chair Shot
3) DDT

Afterwards, you can report to the good people of FoRK how fake it felt.
This will be done in a real pro wrestling ring complete with springs
and all.

Let me know,
