The Body Ventura On Bin Laden, 9/11 and
more, by Greg Tingle - 21st May 2011
man is no stranger to controversy. Media Man, newsrooms
around the world... from Bondi Beach to New York...Mexico,
the Wrestling News Media outfit and friends have followed
his exploits in and out of the wrestling ring and
political arena for decades. Many call him a living
legend and a true American hero. Meet Jesse 'The Body'
Ventura, aka 'The Mind'.
been suggested that the last thing Osama Bin Laden
saw was what Jesse Ventura used to be...one of the
Navy Seals from the U.S.
Seals by default need to be able to fight, having
got some of the best hand-to-hand combat available
in the United States we understand.
would have Ventura faired in a real fight about a
Brock Lesner, Dan Severn, Frank Mir or even Kurt Angle?
We will never know, but leaks say Ventura was and
is one hell of a tough S.O.B.
is not only a former Navy Seal, officially known as
a Naval Underwater Demolition's team (UDT) member
, the precursor to the "Seals".
It would be been interesting to see Ventura fight
MMA - UFC - no holds barred style in his prime. In
the pro wrestling with his time at AWA and the old
WWF, it seemed apparent he was a tough dude, but his
style of pro wrestling made it difficult to see just
how tough he may have been for real. How about his
wrestling exploits with Rowdy Roddy Piper, Randy "Macho
Man" Savage, Hulk Hogan, the late Adrian Adonis
and WWE head honcho, Vince McMahon - the stuff of
wrestling folk law.
hard not to dig Ventura's real life rock n roll wrestling
connection, being a former bodyguard for The Rolling
Stones, pro wrestling champion, ex-Governor Of Minnesota,
TV talk show host and now, hes a well-respected
and best selling author with some extremely controversial
things to say about the U.S government.
you haven't done so already, grab yourself a copy
of his latest book '63 Documents the Government Doesn't
Want You to Read'. He gives his take on what he believes
really happened before, during and after 9/11.
hard not to dig Ventura's movies like 'The Running
Man' and who can forget 'Predator', where he played
opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger.
world awaits to see if Ventura will run for President,
perhaps with Schwarzenegger as Vice... no, not that
sort of vice friends. For a while it looked like Donald
'The Don' Trump was heading for that big white office
in Washington, only just deciding to opt out of the
course, Ventura might like to just jump back into
corporate sports endorsements and the like, ala WWE,
UFC and maybe even a bit of gaming and sports betting.
few things are for sure. He will keep 'em guessing
and we'll be hearing lots more from one of America's
most powerful pens and voices.
