ESPN.com asked Scott what he thought about his wrestling critics:
“It would be like going on ‘Dancing With the Stars. Did I have to check (with the Jets) when I ate Wise potato chips? (An endorsement he did last fall.) Did (Mark) Sanchez have to check when he threw a Pepsi bottle in a Pepsi commercial? Do you have to check when you shoot a Dicks commercial and have to run across the floor? (A Darrelle Revis commercial.) At what point does it bear conversation?”
So now Scott’s appearance was nothing more than a glorified commercial/endorsement deal?
As for the Jets front office, they have declined to comment so far on Scott’s part-time career as a wrestler.
