In a stunning report at TMZ, it has been revealed (through legal docs, natch) that Floyd Mayweather Jr -- a/k/a "Money Mayweather" -- doesn't actually drink or smoke or mainline heroin when he goes out to the club.

It's all an act.

He does it to promote his fights.

I'm going to give you a moment to process this. I'm sure it's hitting you like a ton of bricks right now.

As I've noted before, I was a big pro wrestling fan growing up. This reminds me of when Vince McMahon himself was forced to shock the public with the admission that professional wrestling isn't a real sport. Being mentally handicapped (not truly mentally handicapped, just really, really stupid), my life changed forever that day, and would do so again in the following years, when TV shows revealing stunt grannies and how to take "a bump" were massive hits on television that no one laughed at ever.

But Mayweather? It's an act? Is boxing even real? IS LIFE?

Nothing's right. I'm torn.
