Bayonne Bleeder: "Basta!"


After 27 years of seeing the Rocky franchise rake in cash, Chuck Wepner, who went the distance with Muhammad Ali back in Old '75, wants a piece of the action. I'm not sure what the greater danger is now: That Joe Frazier, who pioneered the running-up-the-steps routine at the Philly Art Museum, will decide his ringside cameo in Rocky I wasn't enough payback; or that Wepner will realize somebody also ripped off his later career as an exotic dancer/welder/ballerina.
