I met a few pro wrestlers…
Farooq/Ron Simmons - Real class act, met him at an indie show. I had to pay for an autographed picture, about 10 bucks, it’s how he makes his living these days though so, I didn’t mind. Really nice, cool dude, polite, well spoke…HUGE hands. We shook hands and brother had mammoth mits. Then he asked my girlfriend at the time if she wanted an autograph…but he said “What about you little baby?” I don’t give a fuck if he called her baby! he’s ron simmons!
Gangrel - Really fun to talk to real laid back and chill. Same indie show. I told him it was good to see him, his response? “It’s good to be seen, brother, good to be scene.” Only charged 5 bucks. Pretty cool.
Luna Vachon - I met her backstage at a WWF show when I was around 10, really sweet. Her voice throws you for a loop though, talks like she gargled with nails. Sweetheart though, asked how I was doing in school and stuff. Her autograph was free.
Stone Cold Steve Austin - He is huge. He’s like some sort of bull/man-wall. Really polite, met him the same day I met Luna. I didn’t say much, he asked my mom what I would prefer and autograph or photograph…then he said “Ah, hell, why not both?” he proceeded to do both. Awesome guy, huge hands as well. Also, he smelled like Dove hand soap. I know that’s weird to point out, I just thought it was bizarre this huge athlete who sweats for a living smelled pretty good. Really nice though, polite, even called my mom “ma’am”.
Al Snow - Funny and laid back as hell, he even played the circle game with my brother…my brother lost and got punched my Al Snow.
Dean Malenko - Comedic genius! haha. really funny guy, polite, made you feel like old friends.
Hardcore Holly - Rude asshole. Acted like he owned the WWF or some shit…horse toothed motherfucker. [/quote]
I tied one one with Jake the Snake, and Hacksaw Jim Dugan a few years ago in college. We saw them at a bar, and decided we could out drink them.
We were wrong. They are professionals, I remember nothing outside of “hello”.
