How Do Wrestling Locker Rooms Police Themselves?
Jim Ross' latest FOX Sports blog examines how pro wrestling locker rooms police themselves when a domestic issue arises. The following is a blog excerpt, which also contains quotes from Steve Austin:
It was 1974 when I broke into the showbiz world of pro wrestling, and I entered my first locker room in that business.
It wasn't what I expected. I was expecting "Animal House," but that's not what I experienced.
Some men were actually reading hard-cover books, some played cribbage or dominoes, others napped and some were having casual conversations. These small groups of men were in a season-less business and spent more than 300 days a year together on the road, while occupying small locker rooms with few amenities.
