T To Tango

I read the other day that Mr. T will be one of the celebrities on Dancing with the Stars in the USA.

That's funny.

He's obviously one of the 'gimmick' contestants these kind of shows always have for comic relief.

As I'm sure I've written in the past, I was a fan of Mr. T back in the day. I sat through The A-Team every single week, I watched his cartoon series religiously, I had his toys, I even drank his drink (yep, there we go with me going on about the blue Mr T SodaStream drink!).

This was all before I became a fan of American professional wrestling. Fellow fans will know that T was one of the celebrities that was brought in for the very first WrestleMania in 1985. He was one of the important pieces that made the initial Mania a success. In fact, it could be argued that the WWF/WWE would not be where it is today if it wasn't for the Mr. T brand being associated with the company back then as the McMahons went all-in on the first Mania. Had the special event not been a success, there's a good chance the company wouldn't have survived.

So, with all that said, I don't think Mr. T will win this year's Dancing with the Stars.

In fact, I know he won't!
