The Piledriver, The Sleeper Hold, The… Marion Barry?

God bless Google Alerts. Otherwise, Loose Lips might never have discovered this gem: Marion Barry has a wrestling moved named in his honor. Well, maybe.

According to the Web site WestGeorgiaWrestlingFans.com, amateur wrestling duo Jon and Trey Williams, aka “The Washington Bullets,” used the “Marion Barry” this last weekend to defeat two female opponents, Sunshine and Pandora.

Here’s an excerpt from a write-up of the match:

“Jon kicked Sunshine out of the ring then ducked Pandora’s clothesline allowing him to pull her into a a backcracker, and Trey finished off the Marion Barry combination with a diamond cutter for the pinfall.”

When queried by LL about the Marion Barry, a very helpful “Mike” at the Web site said the term “is a reference to moves that two wrestlers made when pinning their opponents. Two guys teamed up on a girl. It is not a common reference.” LL could not ascertain whether the wrestlers came up with the name, or whether the good folks who chronicle wrestling in western Georgia just decided to use it on their own, without consulting the Williams. And we're not sure how Barry got tagged with a two-on-one reference, either. Barry has had plenty of problems with the ladyfolk, but a twofer?

Here's a glimpse of the Washington Bullets:

“Mike” has promised to forward LL’s questions about the provenance of the name to a more expert source. Stay tuned!

    ShadyLady Cora Masters-Barry stole money from youth boxers and D.C. Government in teh 80's and 90's while she was an alleged Boxing Commisioner. That how she got tight with Rock Newman (Box Promoter and Riddick Bowe fame)and met the Williams Tennis sister-gals. Put that lying cheating beeitch on the street and watch she finds another sport to exploit Black youths. Why, you think Marion Barry loeft her, her weight gain is awful, her attitude wreak of sewage slut, will not mention her notorious bad breath well documented in SE. Peter Nickles,you my Negroe, uh Whitey this week, now go run and evict this slick gal Cora MB and do not allow her to rip off anymore youth of color in DC. Fenty, still cannot get my vote but if you evict this slut from SE I will send you a campaign contribution but promise retribution on Cora the Whora!

    He has defrauded the DC government of thousands of tax payer dollars under the Homestead Deduction Act. The Coalition is calling for Mayor Fenty, Chairman Gray, the DC City Council, as well as the Internal Revenue, to make a thorough investigation of this man’s fraudulent activity. We are asking the Mayor and the DC government to make sure that any and all fees that have accrued in penalties and interests are paid back. Was this money defrauded from the DC Homestead Deduction Act used to pay for his son’s -- Jacques Chevalier, III -- tuition at Howard University? Is his wife, Carolyn, aware that he is a pervert as well as a thief?

    We are also going to contact States Attorney Glenn Ivey in Prince George’s County to investigate this MOCHA mom who ran mayor in New Carrollton, MD this year and lost.
