Well, we might as well follow this story to the bitter end.
Last week, we discussed Ricco Rodriguez‘s auction of his championship belt, and his possibly-related problems with substance abuse. The eBay auction was scheduled to close tonight at 11 p.m. ET; checking in with the auction page this morning, we got the following message:
This Listing Is Unavailable
This listing (140194796581) has been removed or is no longer available. Please make sure you entered the right item number.
If the listing was removed by eBay, consider it canceled.
Did Rodriguez get cold feet about selling his most prized possession, or was he just frustrated by the lack of bids? We’ll do our best to get to the bottom of this mystery. In the meantime, enjoy this clip of Bas Rutten knocking Rodriguez out to punish him for hurting Mark Kerr‘s feelings.
