Working out well! Alex Rodriguez and WWE girlfriend Torrie Wilson

Baseball star Alex Rodriguez may well be stacked.

But he has some hot competition in the form of his new girlfriend Torrie Wilson.

As a former WWE champ, 36-year-old Torrie may well be able to give Yankees slugger A-Rod a run for his money in the fitness stakes.

Last night Rodriguez - who recently split from Hollywood star Cameron Diaz - escorted his lady to watch the LA Lakers.

The sports star, also 36, shared courtside kisses with Torrie at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Both A-Rod and Torrie looked like they were enjoying each others company as they laughed and giggled like love struck teenagers alongside Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber.

Why is Cindy Crawford talking to Urkel?

Alex and I have different tastes in women.

That picture is just begging for a caption, likely one involving "gift baskets."
   5. Lassus Posted: January 06, 2012 at 11:56 PM (#4030957)
People give Alex a lot of crap, but how many 36-year-old pro baseball players are dating women their own age?

I used to watch pro-rasslin' back when it was real.

...or maybe he's not, since that phrase doesn't mean anything in this context. It's only here to set up the "twist" in the second paragraph.

is it just me, or do those look like some very thick glasses? is ARod's vision perhaps in decline? might be a reason to bet against him this season...

A-Rod: OMFG - I got the same gift basket they did?

Too soon?

I'd give A-Rod more credit if he was with Kelly Kelly.
   12. Random Transaction Generator Posted: January 07, 2012 at 02:21 AM (#4031027)
Back in the day, Torrie Wilson was smoking hot.
She's aged nicely without looking like she's had too much work done.
I'm just curious how they ended up in the same circle of friends.

Why? Has he been house-sitting for 3 months?

I used to watch pro-rasslin' back when it was real.

I couple of months ago, I had some business in Boston, at the federal building on Causeway St. Before our meeting, we were in the cafeteria looking out the window to the street below, where a WWE tractor trailer was parked. The Rock and John Cena were painted on the truck, big. A federal employee was standing near us, also looking out the window.

"Remember when wrestling was real?" she said to us. I didn't answer. She said "yeah, these guys, they go from town to town, one night that one jacks up the other, the next night the other jacks up him. It's phony."

I thought she was gonna talk about Ed "Strangler" Lewis or whoever, but she went on to say "Guys like Chief Jay Strongbow, now, those guys were for real."

I nodded and walked away.
   18. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: January 07, 2012 at 12:29 PM (#4031138)
It was marvelous when Chief Jay Strongbow wrestled with his "brother," Jules. Nothing like an Italian-Hispanic tag team of Native American brothers, thirty years apart in age.

It was the Iron Sheik who first turned me off on Iran. Much like Ivan Koloff laid bare the evils of communism.

I became enamored of Parts Unknown thanks to Killer Kowalski.

Wow, you must be really old, I'm only 41 and watched some of it in the 70's and it sure as heck wasn't real then, my guess is that it hadn't been real since the early 50's? sooner?
   22. Downtown Bookie Posted: January 07, 2012 at 01:50 PM (#4031198)
To show you how out of the loop I am, I didn't even know Wilson had separated from Billy Kidman. Turns out they've been apart for over five years now, and officially divorced since 2008.

I think I pretty much stopped tuning into wrestling after the Chris Benoit tragedy, though I would say that my interest really started to fall off after Eddie Guerrero passed away. Just checking the dates, those two shocking events happened about eighteen months apart; but in my mind, they seem much more closely related, as if one almost immediately followed after the other.

He looks a little odd to me.

Chaz Bono did the same for me this year.

#21 - CFB, just to anticipate your next post, the photo linked in #12 really isn't Torrie Wilson.

my interest in pro wrestling usually dips in and out. luckily (i guess) i was on the outs with it during the guerero/benoit time period, so i was insulated from alot of the emotion that came along with that era.

Cindy to A-Rod:

"When you're done with the gerbil, give it back to Richard."

In a short span of time, my second favorite wrestler died, and my favorite wrestler murdered his wife and son and committed suicide. That was it for me.

I can always count on you, Gonf.

" The Sheik, he's after my belt"!
So exclaimed Bruno Samartino to Wild Bill Cardell on WIIC's Studio Wrestling, circa 1965.

I really don't believe there has ever been a time when professional wrestling has "been real".
Gorgeous George in the early 50's was as phony as a 3 dollar bill; cant speak for a time before then.
   32. Random Transaction Generator Posted: January 07, 2012 at 05:18 PM (#4031318)
I saw Hulk Hogan fight Big John Studd at Maple Leaf Gardens some time back in the mid-80s when I was a young teenager.
I pretty much stopped watching around then, until a co-worker told me about the kid who absolutely tore up the mic, called "The Rock".
I started watching again (enjoying the antics of The Rock, Kurt Angle, and Stone Cold), but dropped it again around the time Brock Lesnar made his appearance.

I'll see that bet, and raise you "I don't know who the hell Tori Wilson or Billy Kidman are."

Well, I obviously know now that Tori Wilson is a former Sec State. But I still don't know who Billy Kidman is.

Yeah, the ultimate Primey award for RTG--the fearsomely ferocious, surprisingly action-packed Madeleine Albright Sex Tape...
   36. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: January 07, 2012 at 07:52 PM (#4031395)
We'll settle for the Ernest Borgnine/Ethel Merman honeymoon tape. Yup, honeymoon. The director's cut would feature Borgnine's proclivity for Dutch ovens. I only wish I were joking.
   37. Eric P. Posted: January 07, 2012 at 09:12 PM (#4031429)
But I still don't know who Billy Kidman is.


The only thing you need to know about Billy Kidman is that you should never try to powerbomb him. NEVER.
   38. SouthSideRyan Posted: January 07, 2012 at 09:48 PM (#4031437)
Didn't Hogan powerbomb him through a table?

So we've got Torrie Wilson with A-Rod and Stacy Kiebler with Clooney. McMahon buying WCW really set them for life.
