    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Tourist, you started this thread during my hiatus so I couldn't respond.

    I love pro wrestling. Yeah, I know it's fake and not something a 51 year old man should admit, but I have been watching wrasslin' since I was a kid. I went to a live UWF event when I was stationed in Texas and got to see the One Man Gang and the Von Erichs. I also went to a live Raw event in Lake Placid and got to bring my son backstage as I was the driver for the arena the event was held in. However, I work very hard for my money and am not willing to spend $54.99 to watch WrestleMania when I know they will show the highlights on Raw the following night.

    I felt bad for Cena but there is no way The Rock was going to come back to WWE only to lose in his hometown.

    I remember the good old days of pro wrestling, with guys like Rowdy Roddy Piper (who lives here in Oregon), Jimmy "superfly" Snuka, Playboy Buddy Rose, Hulk Hogan, Dusty Rhodes and Andre the Giant. A lot of these guys toured the Pacific NW back in the late 70's/early 80's and they would perform in small-town school gyms and armories. Most of the time they were in Portland, but 2 or 3 times a year they would come down to my little bitty hometown of Coos Bay and I would go see them and wait outside the locker room to try and get autographs. Great times.....

    you're so right about the cost Upstate,,,, but it kinda came about last year when Wrestlemania came to Atlanta. My 11 year old LOVES wrestling and Atlanta isnt that far. No way I was putting out that much money but I did give in to get it on tv. He obviously feels its a tradition now lol. Its rough but we spent all 4 hours together watching the show and had a good time

    My first memories were down in the southeast. Mid Atlantic Championship wrestling. Later becoming the NWA. My first live event headlined Johnny Valentine against Wahoo McDaniels. The other big names at the time in this area were Ric Flair, Johnny Weaver, the Anderson Brothers, Mr Wrestling, Tiger Conway, Black Jack Mulligan, Ricky Steamboat,,,, jeez names go on and on lol.... aaah the good ole days.

    The American dream, "hard times, daddy." Dusty Rhodes, was the best. Still watch that video on YouTube, where he's talking about Flair.
