Bellator CEO Rebney defecting to stage

With the recent sale of a majority interest in Bellator Fighting Championships to media giant Viacom, MMA Gonzo has learned that Bellator founder and CEO Bjorn Rebney has told Bellator production staff that he will step down from the organization to pursue his second passion – musical theatre.

The Bellator boss is reportedly close to landing the role of Riff Raff in an off-off-Broadway Halloween season production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

Science fiction...

MMA Gonzo caught up with Georgio Sandoval, who plays Dr. Frankenfurter, the sweet transvestite from transexual Transylvania, in the production.

“Everything’s groovy like an old Steve Reves’ movie,” Sandoval said. “We definitely needed a new Riff Raff after the Magenta incident, and Bjorn seems to be pretty dedicated.  He knows the script backwards and forwards – and you should see him do ‘The Time Warp.'”

Check out Bjorn and crew at the East Village YMCA, shows run through Halloween weekend.
