Um… There’s a headline you never thought you’d see, huh? No, we’re not making it up, either.
Former WWE star and TNA star, Johnny Swinger (Johnny Parisi in WWE), has revealed a storyline idea he pitched directly to Vince McMahon that would see him portray a hermaphrodite who competes in both the men’s and women’s divisions.
Swinger, who was in WWE from 2005-06, adds that he even came up with storyline ideas in which he would feud and defeat Trish Stratus for the WWE Women’s Championship.
Speaking to Right After Wrestling last night, Swinger said: “I sidestepped creative and went straight to Vince. I asked for just a moment of his time and I laid out this character where I was a hermaphrodite and I would wrestle in both the male and female division. I would do a program with Trish Stratus and win the the Women’s title then go against Cena. I had angles written to go against Trish, Kane and Cena. I wanted to go to the top. I wasn’t going to pitch an idea to wrestle the first match of the night. I wanted to make money and be in the main event. I own the character…I have a patent for it so if it used on TV, I’ll get paid either way.”

Hmm, wonder why that never came to fruition…
