It would be many, many times *less* sad if Virgil delivered my pizza than seeing him do this.

The sort of person who could've played the character he did isn't going to be a man who has much in the way of self respect, which itself is usually rooted in self-awareness, which he has absolutely none of and thus why he does what he does. The vast majority of people in that same spot (fleeting moment as a recognizable WWF character, then it ends) would've quietly left the limelight and gotten a job as a roofer, or whatever. Not set up card tables to ritually demonstrate how little people care about what apparently is the high water mark in your life.

Research the Lonely Virgil thing, it's not just some LOL meme where people took pictures of him at conventions when nobody was around and then 'haha-nobody-cares-about-Virgil'. This is a 'thing' he actually goes and does in random events, flea markets. You'll be at the State Fair walking back to your car with a deep fried pickle on a stick and there in the parking lot will be Virgil, sitting behind a card table with a sign that says "VIRGIL".

Deep down there's a part of me that hopes against hope Virgil is really a super-genius and this whole thing is a ridiculously brilliant DGAF meta characterization of post-stardom obsolescence that will only be appreciated for its breadth and magnitude many years after Virgils death when his detailed journal is discovered in storage locker sale and its revealed the whole thing was the greatest Kauffman'esque character in human history.

What's more sad? Lonely Virgil or Scram typing multiple paragraphs about Lonely Virgil? :)

They are already setting fights for Super Bowl weekend? Something about Diaz vs Silva makes me think that someone is either going to get injured or pull out. Sounds too good to be true
