• Jim Ross Recalls Vince McMahon Wanting A Female Wrestler To Wear A Plastic Penis Under Her Attire
During the latest edition of Grilling JR, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross discussed the chemistry between former WWF wrestler Goldust and Marlena (his wife at that time).
JR revealed the hilarious pitch from Vince McMahon, which was to have Marlena (Terri Runnels) wear a plastic penis under her wrestling gear.
Below is what Good Ol’ JR said:
“Goldust was created to be polarizing. You know, it was very polarizing and when we put and is even going to be more so, Vince was all in this, the Attitude Era coming along with the $exual characters, this androgynous guy. Was he really androgynous? Was he gay, was he straight, was he bisexual? We had no idea. But it was a very unique presentation to the point, and I told this to Terri Runnels one time and she was appalled, probably appalled at me.
I’m not sure. But Vince had an idea to have to give her a prosthetic penis to wear under her attire. Something that was never [to be] talked about. Nobody said anything. It was never focused on. It was just there.
Luckily, cooler heads prevailed and that never made air and it never even happened. She wasn’t aware of it. There was a thought at one time about really going…‘Well we’re going to go all the way, let’s go all the way.’
No, let’s don’t if we go all the way, we’re gonna step off of a cliff here. I don’t want to fall off a cliff. We don’t need to be falling off cliffs here. Let’s get close to the edge, but not quite step over it.”
