Britney's Husband Gets Rude Awakening in Wrestling Debut
K-Fed —also known as Kevin Federline or "Mrs. Britney Spears" to some detractors — may hope that his debut CD is better received than his debut in a wrestling ring.
On Monday night, Federline appeared on World Wrestling Entertainment's "Raw" program, which was broadcast live from Los Angeles, Calif. He was greeted by a cascade of boos from the audience, and he seemed to bask in the jeers.
Federline, whose rap CD "Playing With Fire" will be released on Oct. 31, played the "heel" (a wrestling term for villain) to the crowd, calling them a bunch of materialistic "posers" and imploring them to give him the "respect I deserve."
Federline, who purportedly was friends with two WWE stars Johnny Nitro and his manager Melina, refused to rap a single from his CD for the crowd. After he insulted the audience, WWE Champion John Cena came out and confronted Federline. Cena insulted K-Fed and questioned his credibility as a hip-hop artist and told him that he would be with Spears if Federline was not around.
"And if K-Fed wasn't around, I'd be the one spearin' Britney," Cena said.
Federline in turn told Cena that he hoped to see him get his butt kicked at WWE's next wrestling pay-per-view event. Cena, who made his film debut in "The Marine" last Friday, then picked up Federline and slammed him to the mat in a move he calls "The FU."
Federline wasn't the only Hollywood celebrity to get beat up in the ring last night. Steve-O and Party Boy of "2: The Movie" also were thrashed by a 348-pound wrestler Samoan wrestler named Umaga. Maybe these guys should find a safer way to promote their projects.
Kevin Federline Gets Body Slammed at a WWE Event

Kevin Federline made his acting debut on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on Thursday, and on Sunday, he made his debut as a WWE wrestler – sort of.
Federline, 28, turned up at L.A.'s Staples Center for the taping of a match due to air on the USA Network's Monday Night Raw on Oct. 16. Introduced as the "A-list friend" of bad guy Johnny Nitro, Federline played the villain as he walked to the ring amid boos from the crowd.
"Same people who are booin' me now buy my picture on the cover of magazine," he told the audience. "Y'all want to hear my rap?" When the boos continued, he replied, "Well, you're going to have to wait until my record drops in October."
At that point, WWE champion John Cena came out, taunting Federline in classic wrestling smack-talking style with such lines as, "The album is called Playing With Fire? They should call it The Biggest Scumbag on Earth!" and "You're less talented than Paris Hilton!"
In response, Federline made a comment about wanting to see Cena's rear end dragged around the ring. Then the 6' 1", 240-lb. Cena pretended to shake Federline's hand before lifting him in the air and dropping him to the mat in a body slam.
Federline writhed on the canvas while a team of referees rolled him out of the ring and then helped him backstage, but by the time he exited, he was walking just fine.
Also in attendance at the match were Nick and Aaron Carter and members of the bands ZZ Top, Three 6 Mafia and Motörhead – none of whom were body slammed.
