Dennis Rodman finally has another job -- but it isn't in the NBA.
Rodman has agreed to a one-year contract with World Championship Wrestling, the organization for which he wrestled on pay-per-view shows in 1997 and '98. A WCW source said Rodman will be at the Bash at the Beach pay-per-view show, which takes place July 11 at National Car Rental Center in Sunrise, Fla.
Rodman's most recent in-ring appearance was in July, when he teamed with Hollywood Hogan against Diamond Dallas Page and Jazz F Karl Malone.
The Rodman-WCW marriage comes at a time when the star power of both parties is fading. Rodman was cut by the Lakers before the playoffs and found no other team interested in signing him, while WCW is desperate to improve slumping television and pay-per-view ratings in its battle with the rival World Wrestling Federation.
Maybe Rodman can form a tag-team with rapper/NBA wanna-be Master P, who also has signed a one-year contract with WCW.
COACH DOC: Doc Rivers was hired as coach of the Magic, succeeding Chuck Daly and taking over a team that was upset in the first round of the playoffs. He signed a four-year guaranteed contract worth about $8 million.
He has no previous coaching experience, having served as a broadcaster since retiring as a player.
