Todd Grisham - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (759 words)
On the October 30 episode of RAW, Grisham hinted at a heel turn by revealing that though supposedly a neutral party, he had voted for King Booker to face John Cena in the ring, after much ribbing from the WWE Champion.
Todd Grisham did another botched slip of enunciation during the Chris Benoit DVD Hard Knocks: The Chris Benoit Story during a match between the Pegasus Kid (Chris Benoit) and Japanese wrestling legend, Jushin "Thunder" Liger as Grisham would pronounce Jushin as "Justin," and much to Todd's chagrin, Benoit would correct him.
Todd responded in good humor by saying he may have experimented in college, but that was no reason for that claim.
