New York Giants star running back Brandon Jacobs is not letting teammate Victor Cruz get all of the recent post-Super Bowl shine as he made his official TNA Wrestling debut this week.

Much like recent footage of rap star Rick Ross' TNA appearance, Jacobs is shown in a confrontation with a rival wrestler.

Forget the Kanye shrug. Can we all start doing the Brandon Jacobs "I don't want any problems" gesture? In his TNA Wrestling debut, the New York Giants running back went from knocking back a beer with James Storm to snapping and getting held back by three people after Bully Ray spit some brew in Jacobs' face in only a couple minutes. Sidebar: D'Lo Brown (in the white polo) deserves an Oscar nomination or something for that overdramatic performance. (Complex)

Just last month, Ricky Rozay made headlines for taking party in a pay-per-view TNA event.

You might disagree, but to me, Rick Ross belongs to the upper class of celebrity that I can't imagine doing normal people things. Like, I can't imagine Prince running to the convenience store to buy a half gallon of milk. I can't imagine Jay-Z going to Target to buy a heated blanket and a candle. It's impossible to imagine those people interacting with normal folks. So, the fact that Rick Ross was just chilling with some of his people at the most recent pay-per-view for second-tier wrestling promotion TNA (TNA: Genesis), rubbing his hands and high-fiving wrestlers is about the funniest thing I've seen all day. Like, shouldn't he be running his Wing Stop franchise, or "dealing cocaine," or being a boss in some capacity that doesn't involve high fiving dudes in sweater vest coats or wearing cargo pants? Maybe those People articles are right: Celebrities are just like us! (Prefix Mag)

Three years ago, WWE announcer Jim Ross denied reports claiming the company offered rap star Kanye West $10 million to wrestle on television.

"I even saw on the 'net that it was alleged that WWE had offered Kanye '$10M' to step in the ring and wrestle," he wrote, "which is so outlandish and ridiculous that it's insane." (Headline Planet)

Recently, "Love & Hip Hop" star Erica Mena told SOHH why the ladies love Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz so much.

"Oh my God, yes! It's salsa time, baby!," Mena told SOHH when asked if she was familiar with the NFL star. "I'm a fan. You cannot deny a man who can dance and who's not afraid to dance. I know for me, that's just sexy as sh*t. [laughs] And then a man who can make touch downs and then [dance on the field]? Yeah, that's sexy, I'm sorry. Plus, men in tight pants? Ohhhhh. He has everything working for him. The tight pants, dancing on the field, the touch downs, he is the total package. That's what it is. He's a New York Giant so what more can you say? He's the perfect player. [laughs] He is the man right now." (SOHH)
