Former professional wrestler Andre Davis was sentenced Monday to 32 years in prison for having sex with women without telling them he had tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS. Davis, 29, wrestled using stage names including Gangsta of Love and Sweet Sexy Sensation, was convicted in November.
Prosecutors had said Davis violated state law by not telling a dozen sex partners about his HIV status or lying to them. Davis told the judge Monday that he was a “sex addict” and that his addiction grew worse when he lost his dream of becoming a professional wrestler after getting the HIV test results.
“Drugs and alcohol are terrible, but sex is something everybody wants,” he said.
Davis, who said he didn’t disclose his HIV test results because he didn’t want his family to know, said he never intended to hurt anyone.
“I am not a monster,” he said.
The judge, citing medical privacy laws, had prohibited attorneys from bringing up whether any of the women was infected with the virus, which can be transmitted through unprotected sex.
The Cincinnati Enquirer has reported that World Wrestling Entertainment told Davis in July 2009 that it wouldn’t hire him because he failed his physical and tested positive for HIV.

The Idaho Statesman reports Rodriguez was at Axiom Fitness in Boise on Monday with Wilson, who also has was a Playboy centerfold.
Mike Murad, an anchor for Channel 2 in Bosie, also spotted the Yankees star, and posted a photo of him on Twitter. Murad told the Statesman that A-Rod said “He was trying to keep a low profile.”
Rodriguez and Wilson were photographed earlier this month riding bicycles together in Miami, according to the New York Daily News. They also were seen in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, vacationing with actor George Clooney and gal pal Stacey Kiebler, another former woman wrestler.
Wilson was the 1998 Miss Galaxy fitness winner, and appeared on Playboy’s cover in 2004.
Former NBA superstar, rapper, actor, and Deputy Shaquille O’Neill revealed in a radio interview this week that he is in negotiations to make his pro wrestling debut in Miami for Wrestlemania 28. Shaq told the Abe Kanan show that he is negotiating with the WWE to go one on one with The Big Show, following up an angle June 2009 on RAW.
“This would mark The Big Show’s second WrestleMania match against a sports celebrity,” the report notes. “Show wrestled boxing great Floyd Mayweather, Jr. at WrestleMania 24 in a match that was a lot better than most people expected it to be.”
The report also goes on to warn that the WWE is not happy that this news has leaked and may reconsider, since the whole point of Shaq showing up was that it would be a surprise. But either way, the The Rock is already set to wrestle John Cena for the big night.
Relations between ex-spouses are often strained, but in the case of Hulk Hogan aka Terrance Gene “Terry” Bollea and Linda Bollea, things are getting downright ugly. As the Telegraph is reporting, Bollea recently claimed that Hogan is gay and had an affair with wrestler Brutus Beefcake. She also accused the wrestler of being prone to violent, threatening outbursts during their marriage.
US Weekly notes that in her memoir, “Wrestling The Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes,” Bollea writes, Hogan “…tore my clothes, threw lamps, and held me down on the bed with his hands around my throat during arguments… I was always afraid he would kill me in one of his rages.”
The revelation of Hogan’s supposed affair with Beefcake occurred while she was promoting the book.
Hogan himself said:
“If any of that was true, I would admit it, and (if) I was a homosexual I would embrace it. It’s just so crazy to hear, so I have a real problem with it… If you’re going to say I’m something that I’m not to try to ruin my career and my livelihood… I have to answer her back. It’s so ridiculous. I don’t mean to laugh about it, because it’s not funny. But it’s insane. It doesn’t make any sense to me.”
Boston Red Sox Dustin Pedroia is a huge wrestling fan and the former MVP got a surprise Tuesday when he met wrestling legend Ric Flair. However it wasn’t enough for ‘Laser Show’ to spark his club into a win as they lost 7-5 to the Baltimore Orioles.
To be ‘The Man,’ you gotta beat the man!
Ellis Coleman a wrestler from Northern Michigan University pulled off one of the more ridiculous wrestling takedowns ever seen at the Junior World Championships. Coleman pulled the flying squirrel on Mehdi Chooli Zeidvand of Iran before he had any idea of what happened.
We normally don’t touch on wrestling instead leaving that for the more dedicated wrestling websites but when the Nature Boy Ric Flair hits the people of North Carolina with the chance to be rich then that deserves a good WOOOOOO!
Rory McIlroy endured one of the most painful lapses in Masters Tournament history on Sunday, when he shot an 80 in the final round, giving up a four-stroke lead to finish tied for 15th place. McIlroy had a stretch holes not even Greg Norman would want to watch however did end the meltdown moment with a handshake from former WWE executive and professional wrestler Shane McMahon at Augusta National.
McIlroy can always look back at this years Masters appearance and forget he tied Ken Venturi in 1956 as the worst final round by a 54-hole leader instead remembering that he shook hands with one time Hardcore Champion.
New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott will make his official wrestling debut the same day the current NFL Labor agreement is set to expire between players and owners. On March 3rd Scott will assist wrestling legend Hulk Hogan’s to TNA Wrestling as he tries to settle a score with Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle and Kazarian on Spike TV’s “TNA iMPACT.” The special episodes featuring the Jets defensive star will air 8 p.m. CST Thursday, March 3 on Spike TV.
The Hulkster critiqued Scott’s infamous postgame interview after the Jets second-round playoff upset of the New England Patriots.
“I knew when Bart looked down the barrel of the camera he believed in himself and in what he was saying,” Hogan said. “That makes him a real dangerous man. When his career’s over and he wants to make some real money, tell him to give me a call and we’ll break him in the right way.”
Scott isn’t the only non-wrestling personality TNA has added for the March 3rd show as “Jersey Shore” cast member Angelina Pivarnick will be appearing and will be joining forces with TNA’s “Jersey Shore” knockoffs Robbie E. and Cookie and issuing an open challenge to former castmate Jenni “J-Woww” Farley.
We don’t normally touch on wrestling on this site but having come across this video I could not stop laughing and just had to. This is either the worst thing I’ve ever seen or the best thing, I’m still not sure. I guess I’m still hypnotized.
A high school wrestler will go to trial this week for sexual assault. little Tommy is facing expulsion for using a controversial wrestling move on a freshman teammate. 17-year-old Preston Hill was wrestling a freshman in the summer and performed a controversial move called the “butt grab” in which the wrestler grabs his 14-year-old opponent’s ass to execute a move.

The father of the victim, Ross Rice said his son had to be treated by a doctor. A criminal trial on the sexual assault charge is scheduled for today in Juvenile Department of Fresno County Superior Court. An expulsion hearing is scheduled for January.

The gig is to pay the Jersey Shore vixen $15,000. How much did Snookie get paid for taking an actually hit by a guy? Nothing.
I don’t claim to know anything about greco-roman wrestling except I’ve seen Vision Quest more than once but I believe this is a illegal move. Just guessing here.
