Bobby Eaton, Arn Anderson and Terry Taylor enjoy WCW's first Bruise Cruise.

So why haven’t wrestlers hit the water since 1999? Themed cruises are still big business after all. Musician John Mayer launched the Mayercraft Carrier in 2009. This summer, fans of the gory “Saw” movies will board a cruise based on the popular horror franchise and set sail to Canada. Photos even popped up on the internet last year of WWE Hall of Famer and self-professed "metalhead" Edge hitting the high seas with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley on the maiden voyage of The Kiss Kruise. If The Rated-R Superstar gets an opportunity to share a shrimp cocktail with his boyhood idols, why shouldn’t the WWE Universe?

“I think it would do very well,” Michael Hayes admitted when asked about taking the Wrestle Vessel out of the dry dock for another excursion. “It’s an opportunity for the people of the WWE Universe to share a cruise with WWE Superstars in a real exotic location. The performers all get to let their hair down a little bit, so you get a different side of us. I think that’s what a lot of our audience is looking for.”

Zack Ryder agreed with the former WCW Tag Team Champion. In fact, the fist-pumping Superstar already has his first day on the boat all planned out.

“I would definitely hang out with my broskis and look for my future ex-girlfriend,” Long Island Iced-Z said with a smile. “There are definitely some hot members of the WWE Universe out there, and if they want Zack Ryder to rub some suntan lotion on them, then that’s fine. I’d just be doing my job as a WWE Superstar.”

Partying with The Freebird? Getting a rub down from Zack Ryder? How many more reasons does the WWE Universe need? Hurry up already and bring back wrestling cruises!
