In its world where illusion is everything, the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) says it is negotiating with Mike Tyson to appear in one of its shows.
And in a world where a former world heavyweight champion disgraces himself by biting off the tip of an opponent's ear, a role in the outrageous antics of professional wrestling doesn't seem to be all that much of a stretch.
The WWF said it is negotiating "with 'Iron Mike' Tyson and (promoter) Don King for the former heavyweight boxing champion to participate in Wrestlemania XIV" March 29.
Elsewhere, former welterweight champion Meldrick Taylor has been accused of trying to swindle an insurance company by claiming his $85,000 Mercedes convertible was stolen in 1994. The 1984 Olympic gold medalist, now a minister at a Cheltenham, Pa., church called the University of Practical Knowledge, waived his preliminary hearing and is scheduled to be arraigned on the fraud charges next week.
