Stone fake

Greensburg residents missed out on getting a taste of high culture:

Locals fans clamoring for an autograph or photo with their favorite iconic wrestler received a Stone Cold disappointment on Saturday.

According Greensburg Police Chief Brian Heaton, a visit to the city by the retired World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) icon Stone Cold Steve Austin was really an impostor looking for some cold hard cash.

Originally slated to appear before the pro wrestling event at the Armory on Saturday, the look-alike Austin and his manager were able to convince the local Wal-Mart to hold an autograph signing. During the event, the phony charged fans $10 for an autograph and picture. As the fake Austin began greeting fans, Wal-Mart managers noticed something wasn't right.

Imagine that. A fake event involving a wrestler.

Not a fake event. It was a real event, involving a fake wrestler....

Shame on those Wal-Mart managers, spoiling everyone's fun....

There can be no faking of a fake autograph from a fake athlete representing a fake sport. Fans would have been better off spending their hard-earned cash at Stone Cold Creamery ..especially in Dallas.

Does Cold Stone Creamery still exist?

They closed all their locations here in Lancaster, and auctioned off the store contents.
