Pac Man -- The Next Hulk Hogan?!

7/30/2007 6:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pac Man JonesSuspended NFL player Adam "Pac Man" Jones -- yeah, the guy who allegedly "made it rain" on strippers before a shootout in a Vegas strip club -- may soon be wrestling with more than just felony charges. Sources close to the star tell TMZ that Pac is just about set to go from the gridiron to the wrestling ring. Intercepted!

The troubled Tennessee Titans cornerback is currently facing felony charges related to a trigger-happy melee at a Vegas strip club in February. The hot-headed Jones is also accused of punching a stripper at the club while she was trying to grab some dough off the stage. Maybe he already knows how to pack a punch! TMZ has confirmed he's on his way to Nashville-based TNA, also known as Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling. A source connected with the deal says an official announcement will be made soon. Can ya wait?

Perhaps the scantily clad ring girls should think about keeping one eye on the crowd ... and one on the Pac Man!

2 things:

1) TMZ, why do you have a WWE logo, when this guy signed to TNA?

2) you heard they are gay? where did you hear that? from your gay connection? wwe is known for firing guys who are gay!

How retarded is this web site? The WWE logo shouldn't even be associated with this story when he was signed to TNA. Granted, no one knows who they are, but hey, obviously they are desperate for publicity instead of always flying under the radar.

Let's brush up on our journalistic ethics, Harvey and co. That's right, I forgot. TMZ has NONE!

Yeah, its the wrong logo, I am sure it will be fixed soon. WWE will make sure of that.

This is nothing but a publicity stunt from a company that is getting 1/4th WWE's ratings and no where near the buyrates of WWE PPV's. Honestly, after the Chris Benoit tragedy, Pac Man Jones wouldn't be my first choice for a celebrity appearance to get publicity. Considering that K-Fed's appearances for WWE earlier this year didn't do much for WWE, I can't see this doing much for TNA, other than people now know TNA exists.

Pacman should be more concerned with keeping his fullest focus in the ring and not on the ring gals(now that he's sigend a deal with TNA Wrestling),for the likes of Samoa Joe,Sting,and Kurt Angle could entrap him in a leg-lock if he isn't careful.

Well, at least he's doing something to keep in shape while he's suspended. He should have gone back to school and finished his college degree in that time off, but hey, his life. his choices.

I, personally, will be interested to see how he does, cause he was one hell of a good player in college and the NFL, just has some serious behavior problems.

Rg i grew up loving pro wrestling in the mid 70s dont watch it anymore even got in the buisness in the mid 90s my coclusion was from what i heard pat patterson was one of the biggest gays that ever exsited in the wwf or wwe whayever it is now . I dont think wwe fires anyone for being gay i was under the impression in times past that how most of the guys got hired as alot of the guys in the wwewho are bisexual i personally feel most are swinging from both sides of the fence to work there anyway no offence just wanted to clear that up about the thing there calling pro wrestling . IM a big football fan played in colledge as far as pac man hes probally a young man who has made alot of bad choices and possibly regret it throwing the dream of playing in the nfl so as far as him being gay or bi i seriously doubtt it his name will bring something like publicity to the tn whatever i was under the impression thats what its about its possible they approached him get the book chokehold by jim wilson they all run it down but its true so remember when you say wwe is firing for being gay usually the opposite there hiring because your bi or gay im a guy whos been in the buisness ,
