So, I work at a newspaper, and we once had these two young men working in our mailroom - each about 6'3 and around 350 lbs. apiece. They loved talking about pro wrestling. It occurred to me that they could be a tag team - the Paper Boys!

They'd come on dressed in classic "newsie" outfits - the knickers, the snap-brim caps, the whole bit. They'd have carriers' bags, and toss copies of their "newspaper" (a promo piece for future matches, of course) out to the fans... but of course they'd keep the one with the steel pipe in the bag for use in emergencies...! Their finishers would have names like "The Headliner," "The Free Press," and "The Final Edition".. and in their off hours they could promote literacy!
