I was asked earlier today what I thought of the alleged drowning in the pool story that Taylor has been spreading around. Once again I am usually the last to know what Taylor says but thanks to my friends on Twitter I am usually kept abreast of her rhetoric. I responded that I never watched what Taylor has to say so I didn't know anything about a pool or a supposed drowning incident. I was sent some links to explain the story. One of the links I received was from the chirping_twit: http://thechirpingtwit.wordpress.com/2012/02/14/reunion-ninja-pool-fight-scene/. Without getting into too much detail Taylor claimed that Russ could lift much bigger men, throw Pitbulls in the pool and drown her all while being beat in the head with a log being swung like a baseball bat. I believe Taylor made the claim that Russ beat much bigger men and claimed he was 250-0. I grew up with Russ and was his best friend. I also was always much bigger than him so I honestly say that her claims are just utterly ridiculous. While growing up Russ used to think it was funny to jump on me and start wrestling. We wrestled and wrestled and wrestled. We would knock things off the wall, wrestle in to his bathroom and knock down shower curtains. We were both very competitive and had teenage energy running through our bodies so we wrestled hard. One of our best friends witnessed many of our famous wrestling matches. I can remember him jumping on the bed nervously laughing saying "ya'll are going to get in a fight". Russ and I never got in a fight. We never threw a punch at each other and he certainly didn't have superhuman strength. That was quite a tale Taylor told of being in a couple's backyard whichever version you read. What might be the hardest part of the whole story to believe is her friends were scared a coyote might get their bulldog. Since Taylor is from Oklahoma I am surprised she doesn't know a coyote wants no part of a pitbull. If she had said a cat that would be more believable. Where are the ambulance records, hospital records and did her friend not bust Russ' head open hitting him with a log like a baseball bat? Take it from someone who wrestled with Russell Armstrong a number of times when he was much stronger, Russ didn't have superhuman strength and he was most definitely not 250-0.
