I just got back to my motel room – with snacks, and a nice ham sandwich. It’s been a good few days. And as most of you know (and for those who don’t) I am a HUGE WWE wrestling fan.
Friday and Saturday I went to what they call “house shows.” These are events that aren’t televised. Many times these shows can be a lot of fun, as the performers can move “off script.” Friday I went with a good friend, Tom. Saturday I set off for Baltimore from my sister’s place. I checked into a nice, comfy hotel room close to the venue. I went to the show, hung out with the other fans and had a great time.
Sunday I woke up and drove from Baltimore to Philadelphia – for what is called the WWE’s Royal Rumble. It’s a big deal in the wrestling world, and as it was my absolute favorite, my heart’s 40th birthday – WWE Superstar Sheamus – I needed to be there. I had to be there. And the event did not disappoint. My boy regained his Tag Team Championship, and the entire event was wonderful. It was made even better by the fans I was seated near. There’s not much better in this world than a wrestling fan.
I wrapped up my four days of wrestling tonight, attending WWE Monday Night Raw (also in Philadelphia). Again, the performers did not disappoint – even the star I don’t care for (Roman Reigns) did an amazing job in a match with The Miz. My Stephen (ok, Sheamus) beautifully defended his Tag Team Title with his partner, Cesaro. I left the building a very happy fan.
Thank you, wwe.com…thank you for everything.
