Ask a Professional Wrestler

John Stossel, reporter/professional Liberterian, decided to answer the burning question of whether or not professional wrestling was genuine. Among the people he interviewed was David Schults, a.k.a. "Doctor D."

The interview didn't go well.

Stossel later filed a lawsuit against the World Wrestling Federation and settled out of court for $400,000. Schults, who claimed he was simply doing what he'd been told to do, was fired.

Interestingly, Stossel claims in his book Give Me A Break that he stayed on the ground until Schults had stormed off. I guess it sounded better than "I ran like the colors on a pair of Madras slacks."
