WrestleCade 2015

Monday, January 25th, 2016

wc1If it hadn’t been for Ricky Steamboat, I would have probably never even known about WrestleCade IV in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I had tried to keep tabs on wrestling autograph events, but this one looked positively giant compared to most of them… and what’s more, they had a lot of names, both obscure and pretty popular, who had been on my long-term radar to try and meet. When I met Steamboat at Fanboy Expo in Knoxville, his handler passed on a coupon to this WrestleCade event and I immediately became intrigued with the many names on the coupon.

mas6After a long day at Disneyland, it’s always nice to have a rather leisurely morning the day after, and that’s exactly what we did on Tuesday, July 1, 2014. There’s never any shortage of laughs when I’m at David’s house, what with quoting someone or something, or watching skewed Brady Bunch clips on YouTube, trying to get ready between the fits of cracking up. Eventually we composed ourselves and headed out to Los Angeles to meet Jimmy at his office. We milled about there briefly and then hit the road for the trek to Malibu Creek State Park, arriving a little bit after 11:00am. Read the rest of this entry »
