12:57 pm - on being a professional wrestler...
last night I got to "debut" as a professional wrestler. Sort of anyway. I didn't have an individual match, but I was in a Battle Royal at our show last night. Since it wasn't just my match, I don't have a lot to say about it. Worth noting I suppose, is that I didn't win. It was Royal Rumble style rules, and I was pretty lucky with the draw, entering 12th out of 17 people. Was eliminated by Super Hentai. Anyway, it was in front of a very good crowd. Over 1000 people (don't have an exact count, but they had presold 800 tickets... and all I know is that the place looked packed). So it was a lot of fun.

Uh... so professionally, 0-1, I guess (I really think battle royals shouldn't really count as a loss, but I the Smackdown video game thinks they should... maybe I should keep a spreadsheet and put a Roger Maris style asterisk next to it).

Congrats!

Do you now have a blood fued going with Super Hentai?

not so much... in a Battle Royal, its kinda every man for himself. So on one hand, there's no real reason to... on the other hand... maybe I'll be bitter.

Dude, he took your hat. If that's not a mortal insult to your honor, I don't know what is.

Heads will ROLL!

I hear echos of such immmortal fueds of the past such as Hulk Hogan vs Rowdy Roddy Piper.

What was your theme song in the end?

Re: Heads will ROLL!

I didn't... I had ultimately settled on Afu-Ra's Warfare, you'll be glad to know. But then we ended up not doing music because... well, there are 17 people in the battle royal, and its insane.

You left out the most important information...

What did you wear?

Re: You left out the most important information...

ah yes... of course... the important stuff...

Well, I still haven't bought any specific gear yet. And I was sort of in a hurry, since I didn't find out til really late that I was going to be doing this. So anyway, I wore black karate pants (which I typically train in, incredibly comfortable) and a red tank top and bandana.... very me, really... then I ended up finding a very pimpin' hat, so I wore that to the ring and took it off as I got in.

Re: You left out the most important information...

Style does indeed, make the man.

That looks like cake in the background. I don't know that cake is good for impending wrestling. Better send it over here.

Re: You left out the most important information...

actually, its not cake... it was a plate of sandwiches... and free food doesn't last very long in a room full of beefy men, so no, there's none left... but hey, become a wrestler, and maybe you too can score a free sandwich.

Re: You left out the most important information...

Good point. Teaching only scores me bagels 2-3 times a year.

Re: You left out the most important information...

eh.... you're better off... maybe that's just cuz I hate bagels though...

Re: You left out the most important information...

Aww yeah.

Even if it wasn't a win, I'm impressed. When you start touring, tell me when you do a show in DC and I'll be the first to get tickets. :)

Re: You left out the most important information...

heh... I don't even know when I am going to get to wrestle here again... will probably be months... but absolutely. and hey... I thought you were gonna be my valet...

Re: You left out the most important information...

I would've loved to be your manager, or valet, or whatever... sadly, I was not taking my impending move to Maryland into account.

But if you ever do tour here and need a bellydancer in your retinue... ;)

heheheh... actually I think that would be totally awesome...
From: zombiesrah Date: April 7th, 2004 - 04:40 pm (Link)

Re: You left out the most important information...

Were you still thinking about getting those fire-patterned pants?

'Cause then we'd totally match, too. ;)

Re: You left out the most important information...

Actually, I was leaning towards the ones with the buckles... but more importantly, you have a bellydancing outfit with flames? How come I have not seen pictures!?!?!

Actually, I don't think I've seen pictures of you bellydancing at all... This must be remedied!
From: zombiesrah Date: April 8th, 2004 - 01:36 pm (Link)

Re: You left out the most important information...

Well, I don't have anything that *has* flames on it, but almost everything I have looks like fire. And you probably haven't seen any pictures because there aren't any yet. But yes, this must be remedied. ;)

I'd really like to see you wrestle sometime. I used to watch wrestling a lot. Somehow I got away from it. Seeing someone I know may get me back into it.

are you professional as in PAID?

(and what devilry is on your site that is slowing down my typing...)

maybe you're just crashing from caffeine withdrawl... ;-)
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: April 6th, 2004 - 09:03 pm (Link)
well, when I have an actual debut match, I sure as hell will be posting about it here... in big huge letters... :-)
