-- Earlier we posted videos of Rove McManus on The Tonight Show last night (link), here is a recap of the segment from Eric Sturrock:
On the 4/6 Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Leno had Rove McManus go to WrestleMania 27 for the show. Rove had the top TV show in Australia for awhile and his brother ran World Wrestling All-Stars in Australia. Rove is good friends with Jeff Jarrett & Jeremy Borash of TNA. Rove will launch a new show called "Rove L.A." soon but it will only air in Australia right now.
Rove said Jay wanted him to go to a real American event, which only happens here, and capture everything about the United States. Back in November two of Rove's co-stars on his old show were the two that interviewed Hillary Clinton when she said the rest of the world thinks of America from what they see on TV as wrestling and bikinis so Jay sent him to WWE's WrestleMania 27. Rove said it was amazing and he loved it and there were over 70,000 people at the show. Jay laughed. Rove said it was a whole weekend of fun with fans dressed up as wrestlers.
A graphic shows "Rove across America".
Rove is at WWE Axxess and said he is t here for a great American tradition, WrestleMania! We saw video clips of Heath Slater & Chavo Guerrero in a match from Axxess, two fans jumping into foam blocks in a ring and Sheamus lifting Rove off of the ground with only one arm. Rove said he is t here for a 4-day celebration all things wrestling. The camera panned to a banner showing Triple H, Edge, & Miz, and Rove said he felt overdressed.
Rove interviewed a fan dressed as Hulk Hogan. Rove said, "Please tell me you are here for WrestleMania". The fan quoted Hogan and called Rove " Mean Gene" and talked as if he were Hogan and said Hulkamania will be at WrestleMania this weekend. Rove asked what the fan does when he is not dressed as a 50 year- old wrestler. The fan said he is a prison guard, like the Big Bossman. Rove acted surprised and got excited and said, "Please tell me you dress like this for work!" The fan said, "No they'd throw me off the building." Rove said, "Oh come on!"
