Limp Bizkit Clashes With ECW Wrestlers Onstage

For those who feared that the world of professional wrestling had not completely penetrated pop culture, we offer the following news.

Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst found himself in the middle of a donnybrook involving Extreme Championship Wrestlers Steve Corino, Balls Mahoney, Axl Rotten, and New Jack onstage during a recent concert.

The band's Billionaire Pirates tour rolled into Peoria, Illinois' Civic Center on November 20, the same night that ECW was staging an event in town. Limp invited some of the ECW stars to its show, and Corino (the scourge of the ECW) accepted, running onstage during the band's performance and announcing that he'd rather see "good bands" like Carly Simon and The Bee Gees.

"You are the epitome of what's wrong with the United States of America," [RealVideo] Corino barked at Limp frontman Durst. The singer retorted that perhaps Corino wouldn't talk so tough if Mahoney, Rotten, and New Jack were

around, a cue that brought the aforementioned wrestlers out from backstage.

The ECW stars then proceeded to pummel Corino with fists, a metal chair, and a beer can as Durst held Corino's arms behind him. After Corino crashed to the ground with a bloody forehead, the band then resumed its set.

Limp's Billionaire Pirates Tour (with Method Man, Redman, and System Of A Down) wrapped up last week in Madison, Wisconsin without further incident.
