WWE Meets Baseball Video: Alfonso Soriano, Cubs Called Out by…The Miz?


This is what I call random video:  WWE (they still have that?) performer The Miz doing some bad routine – I’m assuming at an event in Chicago – where he challenges Alfonso Soriano to a match, and blasts the Cubs for not winning a World Series in over 100 years.  I think Jay Mariotti may have written the dialogue.  Don’t worry, Alfonso didn’t accept the challenge.  Actually, he didn’t do much of anything – just stood there like a brick, absorbing the scripted abuse.  I’m guessing Alfonso was aware this was all going to happen – it’s wrestling after all – but, obviously, there was no rehearsal, or he skipped rehearsal, or he forgot the facial expressions he practiced in rehearsal and elected to remain completely impassive, like Rain Man.
