ESPN's Stuart Scott Says He Was "Surprised" Of Mayweather Working For WWE

ESPN personality Stuart Scott recently commented on Floyd Mayweather working with WWE for his match at WrestleMania XXIV against Big Show. Scott’s comments are from a chat that he does on the ESPN website where there are a few questions and answers selected and included in his “Two Way” column in ESPN: The Magazine. The below question and answer is featured in the Stuart Scott “Two Way” column in the latest 10th Anniversary Special issue of ESPN: The Magazine.

Dylan from San Francisco asks: Stu, what do you think about Floyd Mayweather’s plan to wrestle in the WWE? If Vince McMahon called, would you join the smackdown?

Stuart Scott: I see why older athletes who still crave competition and want to keep their names in the headlines doe something like this. But I admit I was surprised to hear the world’s best pound-for-pound boxer had signed up. As for Vince calling me, I’d have to decline. I’m old-school. If I can’t get in the ring against Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat, or the Road Warriors, then forget it. In fact, I’ll go even older-school here: Thunderbolt Patterson, Big Cat Ernie Ladd, the Mighty Igor – if I can’t wrestle the guys I watched as a kid, I won’t wrestle anybody.
