If you know anything about minor-league and independent-league teams, you know they like to draw attention to themselves through any means necessary.
The Bridgeport Bluefish today announced that former nWo members Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman will guest manage the team on Friday, September 2 as the ‘Fish take on the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. The nWo will throw out the ceremonial first pitch and participate in a pre-game meet-and-greet with fans. Also, following the game a Micro Wrestling showcase will be held in the Two Roads Beer Garden.
The Bluefish had previously made waves by having Jennie Finch and Roger Clemens guest-manage. Those would seem to be bigger deals to a baseball-going crowd than a group of wrestlers whose popularity peaked 20 years ago.
But who knows — independent-league ball is bloody weird.
