Pierre-Paul -- who had a breakout season at defensive end in New York's run to victory in Super Bowl XLVI -- had been in negotiations to appear on TNA Wrestling, essentially the Hydrox to the WWE's Oreos.
But those talks stalled this weekend, according to FoxSports.com, ending Pierre-Paul's flirtation with the squared circle.
"He declined because he is exhausted," Rosenhaus Sports president Robert Bailey told FoxSports.com in a text message.
Had Pierre-Paul signed on the dotted line, he was set for an in-ring "verbal confrontation" with TNA star (and former Olympic gold medalist) Kurt Angle. Jets linebacker Bart Scott did the same exact thing a year ago.
And now, apropos of nothing, here's Mick Foley being thrown off a steel cage and through a Spanish-language announcer's table.
UPDATE: A source told FOXSports.com that Giants running back Brandon Jacobs will take Pierre-Paul's place and enter the ring Monday night during a television taping in Orlando, Fla. Jacobs apparently will have some type of physical altercation with Angle, but it won't violate the terms of his NFL contract. The segment will air during a Spike TV telecast on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.
