It's awesome -- the player is defensive tackle Jay Bromley, a 3rd round pick from Syracuse who just completed his rookie season.

Ex-WWE Star Welcomes Jon Jones to D-Generation X 'Perfect Crotch Chop'

1/6/2015 6:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Shawn Michaels, Triple H ... and now Jon "Bones" Jones is OFFICIALLY a member of the baddest wrestling group of all time D-Generation X -- so says ex-WWE star X-Pac

If you saw Jones fight at UFC 182 this weekend, then you saw him flash the famous DX "SUCK IT" crotch chop to Daniel Cormier after beating his ass for 5 rounds. 

Well, the move struck a chord with X-Pac -- one of the first soldiers in the DX  army -- who told us Jones "did the crotch chop with perfect form, like he does with everything in the octagon."

That's why he's all about bringing Jones onboard as an honorary member of DX ... just like they did with Mike Tyson back in '98. 

"We've got Tyson, so why not Jones? The more the merrier," Pac says.

And if you're not down with that, he's got two words for ya ...

123114_the_miz_launchIt doesn't matter that he's training with Hulk Hogan ... if rapper Riff Raff actually makes it to the WWE, he's got an ass-whooping waiting for him ... so says The Miz.

The WWE superstar was at LAX -- when he told us he's glad Riff Raff is pursuing his dreams ... but warned the wannabe that A LOT of people have tried to get in the WWE, and A LOT of people have failed. 

In fact, Hulk Hogan recently told us several ex-NFL stars were told to kick rocks because they couldn't hack it in the squared circle. 

Interesting connection between Miz and Riff ... they both started on MTV (Riff was on "From G's to Gents," Miz was on "Real World") before trying to make the jump to pro wrestling.

Obviously, Miz was successful ... and Hulk is extremely confident that Riff can follow in his footsteps as long as he takes it seriously.

Stay tuned ...

WWE Sheamus DeLorean

WWE superstar Sheamus may not be a champ anymore, but he's still living like one -- dropping a bundle on the crown jewel for all exotic car lovers ... who also happen to love "Back to the Future."

Our sources tell us the Celtic Warrior went searching for a DeLorean last weekend -- and hit up Just Toys Classic Cars in Orlando for a test drive. He clearly fell in love with it on the spot ... 'cause he scooped it up for around $55K. 

Unclear if Seamus is a "Future" fanatic ... but he can forget about a road trip to 1955. The seller tells us the car -- which is more than 30-years-old -- has a "tough time getting to 88 miles per hour." 

Buyer beware! 

Fun fact: In "Back to the Future III" ... Marty Mcfly's great-great-grandpa's name is ... Seamus!

Wrestling superstar Kevin Nash has been suspended by the WWE in the wake of his violent, bloody arrest in Florida ... TMZ has learned. 

We broke the story ... 6'10" Nash was popped after allegedly choke slamming his 6'5" son Tristen during a domestic dispute.

Now, the WWE tells us that while 55-year-old Nash has not performed "regularly" since 2004, his non-wrestling "legends" contract has been immediately suspended until the domestic dispute is resolved. 

The "legends" contract is primarily a promotional deal with the WWE -- where Nash makes appearances under the WWE banner.

WWE Star Kevin Nash Arrested for Battery Bloody Fight with Son

12/24/2014 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ just got the two police reports. As for Kevin's arrest ... the report says he told cops his son came home wasted and belligerent toward him and Kevin's wife, then spit in his face and elbow-checked him. Kevin told cops he pinned Tristen to the ground and that's when Tristen scratched his face.

But Tristen said Kevin was berating him over his relationship with his girlfriend. He says Kevin then choke-slammed him to the ground and, just like Kevin's signature move, Tristen says he hit is head so hard on the ground he blacked out.  

Cops arrested Kevin because they felt he was the "primary aggressor."

As for Tristen's arrest two hours later ... Tristen's uncle told cops the young man -- who is 6'5" and 200 lbs -- was drunk and  had "slung his mom around the kitchen" and tried attacking him as well.
update-grey-gray-barWrestling superstar Kevin Nash was arrested early Christmas Eve morning -- after getting into a bloody fight with his teenage son Tristen ... TMZ has learned.

The 55-year-old legend -- who is currently under contract with the WWE -- was taken into custody in Volusia County, Florida  after cops received a call about a domestic incident just after midnight. 

When cops arrived to the scene ... they noticed blood on Kevin's face and arrested Nash.

Two hours later, cops received another 911 call from a person claiming 18-year-old Tristen attacked his mother. He was also arrested for battery. 

Cops tell TMZ alcohol may have been a factor. 


Both men were hauled to a nearby jail where they were booked and are currently being held without bond. 

FYI -- Nash (6'10" and 277 pounds) is one of of the biggest stars in wrestling ... he's won titles in the WWE, WCW and TNA ... by using his signature move, the jackknife powerbomb. 

Nash has also had a decent film career. He appeared in "Magic Mike" and will be in the sequel as well. He's also appeared in "John Wick," "Rock of Ages," "The Longest Yard" ... and as Super Shredder in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze."

Tristen is an aspiring singer in a band. 

Just four years ago, Kevin fiercely defended Tristen when Internet trolls blasted the music he posted in YouTube. Kevin wrote, "or those that are just haters because he is my kid, f**k you and I hope you wake up with a brain tumor tomorrow."

Hulk Hogan WWF Rejected Big NFL Stars

12/8/2014 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
120514_hulk_hogan_sports_launch Just because you can play in the NFL doesn't mean you're tough enough to WRESTLE -- so says Hulk Hogan who tells us all sorts of NFL tough guys have tried to cross over to the ring ... and FAILED.

And not just no-name scrubs ... we're talking some pretty famous NFLers who couldn't quite hack it with Vince McMahon's organization ... guys like Oakland Raiders legend Lyle Alzado.

Unclear why Alzado -- a maniac on the field -- didn't get a contract with the WWE (then WWF) ... but Hulk says he wasn't the only NFL star who didn't make the cut.

Hogan names names ... Bill Fralic (4-time Pro Bowler), John Matuszak (2-time Super Bowl champ) ... and explains that it takes a special sort of toughness to fake fight in the squared circle.

"You gotta be able to work hurt," Hogan says ... "You can't be taking a day off from wrestling because you twisted your pinkie if you're wrestling the main event at Madison Square Garden."

So, does Hogan think Sam has a shot?? Check out the clip ...

Fun Fact -- Matuszak went on to have a pretty decent career as an actor and famously played Sloth in "Goonies."
