In I Have Til 5, 3MB will Pick a Topic and Discuss the 5 Finer Points of it
While the discussions around the release of Magic Mike will mostly center around the abs of Channing Tatum, or Joe Manganiello or Matt Bomer or Matthew McConaughey, the overlap between the wrestling fan community and the Male Stripper community will most like focus on Kevin Nash, who has a role in the film as Tarzan in Magic Mike. It would be a nice nod - either from Big Sexy or Director Steven Soderberg - if Nash's scenes could incorporate something about professional wrestling. As long as it's not Nash RUBBING HIS NIPPLES LIKE HE DID IN THE LONGEST YARD!
No, Oz! No!

NOTE: We've excluded Shawn Michaels' "Sexy Boy" from "I Have Til 5" since it's the definite go-to song for any wrestling fan turned stripper. I'm pretty sure Nash dancing to Shawn's theme is a violation of the bro code (If it's not, then it should be: Thou Shalt Not Grind to Another Bro's jam) and nobody wants to see the ladder match that will settle this dispute. Plus, after years watching HBK gyrate and strip to "Sexy Boy," do you really think Nash would want to re-create that? Of course not. He'd tear a calf just thinking about it.
1. Simply Ravishing - Ravishing Rick Rude
If the song is in your head right now, look down: your hips are swiveling. Don't worry. It happens to all of us. It's perfectly natural. Rick Rude was the definition of an 80's lothario, with the bushel of hair on his chest and the Tom Selleck mustache on his face. Despite this somewhat dated image, the lyrics to his WCW theme are timeless: "All the girls go crazy / they don't know what to do." If you're a male dancer, I imagine that's the reaction you'd want from a female audience. Also, I'm sure at least a male stripper or two have modeled their performance attire after Rude's custom spray painted tights.
