(This post is inspired slightly by the "cm punk heart of gold topic) I've been to numerous wrestling gigs over the years (I'm on the verge of becoming twenty-six) and it helped that I was born and raised in the beautiful town of San Diego (a natural hot-spot for wrestling shows).. In such, my friends and I frequented every show that came to our area.. Highlights include : vengeance 2001 where Jericho shocked the world (myself included, but it was great direction by the wwf/e brand) and become the first ever "undisputed champion".. I also attended a lot of house shows, which I found to be incredibly fun, and made the superstars seem much more approachable. My friends and I would arrive at the arena hours before the show (by hours I mean, like as the sun was coming up) there was a local crispy creme donuts in the parking lot that gave away free donuts the morning of the show! Us, being the nerds that we were always wanted to be there extremely early knowing that the big stars arrived early to beat the crowds.. Throughout the years I met quite a few wrestlers this way, and at our local in and out eatery ( Lita, Eric Bischoff, Edge, Batista, Hurricane, Victoria, Shawn Michaels, Goldberg, Nidia, Rico, etc..) Goldberg -On the eve of a raw show, Goldberg entered the parking lot.. I'm not over stating that there was close to 300 people here by that time.. Bill exited his car to the cheers and wants of the fans to come over and take photos and sign autographs.. To my surprise he did just that. Goldberg was mobbed but kept his cool, and was very approachable signing for kids first.. As the crowd grew larger and larger, he went to the locker room but assured everyone he'd come back.. Usually the exit strategy for wrestlers... But yet again.. Goldberg came back.. And made sure each and every person got a picture or an autograph of some sort.. Just a class act. Eddie Guerrero - I believe this event took place at a house show back in 2003.. In a sense the majority of shows all run together for me, as I've been lucky enough to attend quite a few.. Eddie was a heel at this time, and as is the case couldn't break character.. He came to the ring in a cocky nature, but in doing so, he stopped right beside me in the front row (not for me) but for a handicapped child in a wheelchair.. Eddie in stride came back to the kid, gave him a hug and reassuringly messed up his hair in a joking manner.. That has always stuck with me.. Just awesome. If you guys would like to hear some more stories, let me know! thanks!
