“The Body” is climbing back into the ring. On Aug. 22 in Minneapolis, Gov. Jesse Ventura will make a guest appearance at the World Wrestling Federation’s “SummerSlam” event — as a referee. In announcing his upcoming appearance Ventura vowed to bring “law and order” back to wrestling, “because I rule here.” Ventura said he will be paid $100,000 for the event. Half of the amount will go to a foundation for abused children and half will go to a scholarship endowment at the guv’s alma mater, Roosevelt High School, in Minneapolis.
