Not since WCW put the belt on David Arquette has any wrestling organization sunk so low. It wasn’t enough to draft Ozzie G. and AJ Pierzynski for an angle, TNA have now enlisted the services of the reigning World Series MVP, according to the Miami Herald (link swiped from Repoz and Baseball Think Factory)

World Series MVP David Eckstein of the world champion St. Louis Cardinals baseball team will be seated front row Sunday night, Dec. 10 during the TNA pay-per-view Turning Point at Universal Studios Orlando.

Eckstein and several of his teammates attended TNA shows during Spring Training, and the lifelong pro wrestling fan is back for more.

”I have been intrigued by and enjoyed pro wrestling since I was a kid,” said Eckstein, 31, who has played six seasons in the majors.

“Having the chance to see the events live is something that’s very special to me. It’s great entertainment to me. I really like watching the wrestlers perform. I can just sit back, watch and enjoy.”

Eckstein’s favorite wrestler is The War Machine Rhino, a 6-foot-2, 270-pound powerhouse who, ironically, is a diehard Detroit Tigers’ fan and season-ticket holder. The Cardinals defeated the Tigers to win the World Series.

”He’s unbelievable, always full of energy, always full-go. He’s entertaining, fun to watch,” said Eckstein.

Eckstein’s least favorite TNA star is the ever-arrogant Robert Roode.
