Johnny Justice isn't often compared to Roger Blade, his co-wrestler in the AWA -- but that's exactly what happened to the grappler on March 28. "I just got mistaken for a Mr. Blade at Newark Airport," the 24-year-old "Just" Johnny 'rassler told his Twitter followers.
The pseudo star strolled through the New Jersey airport wearing ripped jeans, red sunglasses and a black sweater. That same night, 78-year-old Roger Blade attended a Old-Foggie sunglasses photo call at Rua Oscar Freire in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
When wrestling exec Spazz jokingly told Justice, "I do that all the time when I see you," the yet to win a match wrestler replied, "I get it." Justice then said the "bigger mistake" was flying out of Newark airport; Justice wrote, "I couldn't agree with you more at this moment."
Justice and Blade haven't exactly kept in touch since sharing the ring alongside Eric Draven, Yukon Mike and Morty Blakenship. "Blade was great on 'hammer-locks.' I think that was before he got a little nuts," Justice told Teen Vogue in 2008. "I've met some people who are just so freaking distraught and who don't know how to handle it. ... I kind of don't expect some of these dudes who've been working since they were two to be sane. This business is just weird when you're young."
Despite his feelings for Blade, in a January 2012 interview with the Los Angeles Times, Justice said he still views "Blade's matches" as "time to smoke."
"I am so innocent. I am so green," Johnny explained. "I look back, and I'm like, 'Really, I thought I was doing a terrible job.' But Eric and Blade was protected so well and so wonderfully shielded from danger. My pants made me look good; Blade made me fart. And Morty wrote the biggest checks of all time. I'm so grateful for every experience."
