Traina Thoughts: NFL RB DeAngelo Williams makes pro wrestling debut
The best of the Internet, plus musings by SI.com writer, Jimmy Traina.
1. Free-agent running back DeAngelo Williams, who has played for the Panthers and Steeleres, made his professional wrestling debut at last night's TNA pay-per-view, Slammiversary. Williams and tag team partner, Moose, defeated Eli Drake and Chris Adonis.
The 34-year-old Williams did have a slight problem, however, when he tried to jump off the top rope and onto one of his opponents who was on a table.
A scripted win is a scripted win, though, and Williams took the botched spot in stride.

3. Social media legends, Paul Bissonnette, aka, BizNasty2Point0, took to Instagram yesterday to pay homage to his Speedo.
I've been through thick and thin with this speedo. Mostly thin, and short, but I have an ass like a sewing machine and my tongue game 💯. But that's beside the point. This speedo has seen the top of mountains for Ice Bucket Challenges. It's seen oceans to mostly just float there and urinate because I was too lazy to walk to the public restrooms. Side pieces come and go, but this speedo has stayed by my side. So here's to you Laquisha, that's what a I call my speedo. Happy 4 year anniversary. #HappyCanadaDay #HappyFreeAgencyDay #relationshipgoals
