NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Adam "Pacman" Jones can call himself a pro wrestling tag team world champion, even though his only wrestling move was to cover a wrestler knocked out by someone else.

The suspended Tennessee cornerback has a legal agreement with the Titans to avoid any physical move that could leave him injured. So Jones left the dirty work to tag team partner Ron "The Truth" Killings in TNA Wrestling's "No Surrender" pay-per-view Sunday night against Kurt Angle and Sting.

Jones twice refused to tag in and join the staged match.

The turning point came when Angle's wife appeared ringside, refused to leave and then slapped Sting. She went down as if hit when the wrestler pointed for her to leave, and her husband came over to investigate.

By the time Jones finally tagged in and got into the ring, Angle put a move on Sting that allowed Jones to cover the wrestler for the victory.

TNA wasted no time promoting the victory, putting a picture of Jones and Killings with their championship belts on its Web site.

Jones was suspended for the 2007 season in April for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. His case won't be reviewed until after the Titans' 10th game on Nov. 19. He has two felony coercion charges pending against him in Las Vegas for a strip club fight and triple-shooting on Feb. 19.

TNA, which stands for Total Nonstop Action, is a Nashville-based pro wrestling league.
