Sweetness and the Joshi

Photo via WWE Divas Tumblr

One of the greatest football players and one of the finest professional wrestlers ever, in the same picture. This rare snapshot was taken backstage at SummerSlam 1994, where Bull Nakano unsuccessfully challenged for the WWF Women's Championship, while Walter Payton was Razor Ramon's cornerman. I'm not sure either had any idea who the other was before SummerSlam that year, but hey, they met, took this photo, and now history has a snapshot of two icons in two completely different fields. I love the surreality of it all.
