2018 Year In Review, Part III: July – September

Part 3 of our series covers the months of July – September…and I did absolutely nothing the first and last months covered in this post. Bummer!

However, I had a pretty fun August – thanks to Summerslam weekend. Check it out.

July 

Another month that was absolutely dry for me. Boo. But can August make up for it…?


August 

The answer to the question above: Yeah. Actually, oh hell yeah!

August started with another Wrestling Universe signing! Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Melina stopped by the wrestling haven and both could not have been any nicer!

Highlights include:  I made a comment that Arn Anderson probably has the worst autograph. Smith immediately went into a hilarious impression of Double A that had Melina and I dying of laughter. Smith and I took two photo ops: a normal photo op and one where he’s doing the 4 Horsemen sign in honor of Double A!

Summerslam weekend was in full affect and I was busy as ever. Mella Money, Hakushi, Miz & Maryse, and…Mike Rome?!?!

Highlights include: Managing to get Mike Rome’s autograph mere minutes before the start of the NXT Pre-Show!

September 

Part 3 started and ends with a whole lotta nothing. Whoops.


And that’s a wrap for July – September. Check back tomorrow for October – December, which will cover the time I met The Face that Runs the Place

Upcoming: 2018 Review

I hope you’ve all had a splending 2018 — I certainly did though I’m anxious for the fresh start that 2019 will bring.

I’ve been a little quiet on this blog – and in this hobby in general – though things will ramp back up in January. I have my eye on the JP’s Sports & Rock Solid Promotions White Plains Show on January 11-13 – featuring a few cast members of the Sopranos and various sports legends – plus the annual MAB Pinstripe Parade during the last weekend of January.

But I do have something that’s scheduled to be posted on New Years Eve (or there about): a look back at my 2018. My favorite meets, stories, and photo ops – things like that. I hope you’ll enjoy it!

I’m back back after a brief hiatus and hope all of you are enjoying the holiday season.

The Big Event announced that their 16th show will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2019, from the LaGuardia Plaza Hotel in Queens, NY…and they’ve already announced a rare guest:

Big Event XV Report

Sometimes, the best laid plans really come to fruition. Well…almost come to fruition.

I decided to attend Northeast Wrestling: Redemption at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, NY, mainly to obtain an autograph from Kenny Omega. “The Cleaner” was announced for Big Event XV but I didn’t want to put too much on my plate over there. I pre-ordered an Omega autograph and David Arquette combo. Arquette “cancelled” his appearance (more on this in a bit) and I actually had a slightly negative experience with getting my refund (I finally received it the day before the show).
