WWE boss, Vince McMahon announced this morning that he is to sign Australian actor, Mel Gibson to a three year wrestling contract.
Part time actor- full time racist- Mel, is said to be, "overjoyed" with the opportunity.
Gibson will debut some time within the next month and will either start a feud with any available black wrestler in the company; or fight with superstar grappler, John Cena.
Cena is currently viewed as a more in-demand actor than Mel and this could be the start of their on-screen problems.
McMahon was unavailable for comment but a spokesman from the company released a statement to the press: "I can confirm that Mr Gibson has signed a deal with us. He will wrestle as a stereotypical Australian man, complete with caulk hat and can of Fosters. We are currently training a kangaroo to carry him to the ring."
WWE, who has brought us, date rape, necrophilia and terrorist angles in the past announced that Mel, "won't be playing a racist" as the company are proud to produce, "entertainment that the whole family can enjoy."
Mel told our reporter, "My acting career isn't over. I now get paid and cheered for being aggressive! This is f***ing great! I'm going to get Rolf f***ing Harris to do my entrance music!"
WWE refuse to confirm or deny that a tag team with Russell Crowe may also be on the horizon for Mel...
