NBA Announcers Make Fun Of WWE & WWE Superstars

Matt Boone

Matt Waters sent along the following to WrestleZone.com:

During the UK broadcast of last night’s NBA Playoff game on Channel Five they ran the story about WWE being double booked at the Pepsi Center. They then listed a mock "starting 5" for the WWE, saying why they might be good for basketball. It read as follows:

Point Guard – John Cena – 6’1" (star of hip-hop and films)
Shooting Guard – Randy Orton – 6’4" (former marine – dishonourably discharged)
Center – The Big Show – 7′ (massive in size and former college player)
Small Forward – Montel Vontavious Porter – 6’3" (MVP)
Power Forward – Batista – 6’5" (Champion at Summerslam 05 in Wizards’ MCI Center)

Just found this to be quite amusing, especially the way they linked Orton’s career in the armed forces to being a shooting guard.
