See also Jeff Simmons, "Wrestling with Demons", The Advocate, 5 March 1996: "The wrestlers had even given a nickname to du Pont's habit of touching their crotches. 'Foxcatcher five is sort of a slang [phrase] that was going around Foxcatcher because John du Pont would go around grabbing people in their privates', [Glenn] Goodman said under oath. 'He would do it while he was wrestling around with the guys, or he would do it when he wasn't wrestling, in the hallways or whatever. I wouldn't say it's a legitimate wrestling move, no.'"
