Vote For Steiner, Brother

The former professional wrestler Rick Steiner, known as the Dog-faced Gremlin and as part of the Steiner Brothers tag team, has decided to take his act into the political arena, running for another term on a school board in Georgia.

But in a development that should come as no surprise to anyone who remembers him as one of the dimmer wrestlers in history, Steiner has had to pursue a write-in candidacy, because he mistakenly filed for office under his real name, Robert Rechsteiner, rather than his ring name, Rick Steiner. Let me say, I'd vote for either Ron Simmons or Butch Reed over Rick.

This trend of ex-pro wrestlers going into politics sure is weird, but it's still vastly preferable to the much bigger trend of ex-pro wrestlers dying in their 40s.
