First off let me thank yall for the questions. There is plenty of time to ask more but I wanted to go 'head and thank the folks who've participated already. At first I didn't think I would get questions....
Anywho, last night WWE Raw came to Raleigh and I was in the place to be.
I saw a bunch of little kids with the Ray Mysterio mask on and I wanted to get one for Pooka since she likes him. When we got in the center the lines were too crazy so I figured I'd ask a parent how much they were and if the price was right I'd go get one for her during a match I wasn't pressed to see. Well the father figure looking man in the crew that sat behind us brought who I guess was his son a mask. I asked him the price and the price was WRONG! Sixty flipping dollars for a children's mask! I didn't even ask about the adult masks! Crazy!
So anyways, the whole night the main people I wanted to see was Kane and Bastista. Kane because I wanted to see how massive he was in person and Bastista because...well have you seen his body? The face is okay but the body...*sigh*The evening goes on and the whole time I am super hyped like a hard core fan, screaming and yelling, jumping up, booing, the whole nine. Then it happened....Bastista came out in jeans and a cut off. I been waiting and had my camera ready to get a good pic. We were almost dead straight from the place the wrestlers came out so getting a good pic wouldn't be hard to get...so I thought. His music came on and I hollered like a mad woman. What the heck was up with that? It wasn't that serious! I swear it was the vibe in the building. That's my excuse! I am trying to take a pic but my hands are shaking like those Chinese girls you see falling out over Micheal Jackson. I managed to calm down and take some pretty decent pics. When ever I post my stuff up you'll see the best pics of the stars were the ones I took when they were on the massive screen.
Kane's entrance (below) is really really really loud. Really. I wasn't ready. I've seen his entrance a million times but I didn't figure in the sound of all those fireworks going off like that. Loud. Just Loud! Will definitely bring ear plugs when I go back...oh yeah...I'm going back when they come back to Raleigh for sure. :-) I used to be a serious fan back in the mid 90's and last night brought me back to that time in my life.
The match starts, the folks calm down, and I am sitting there looking at John Cena and that's when I noticed the nice little lump he has under is back. I mean wow! I even had to make a comment out loud about the niceness of the booty. Under the baggy jeans and boxer briefs you could still tell how fitting it was to his big, hard, cut up body. I think I like John Cena now! ROFL!
That match ends, the live taping is over, I think it's time to go, I start walking up the stairs, and 'bout 5 stairs in the announcer chick says that CM Punk and Bastista are going to wrestle!!! WORD? I get to see Bastista live sans shirt with his wrestling trunks on? SWEET! I made my way to the first row cuz the people who were there left and took me some more pics. The match didn't last very long but it was long enough for me :-) After that the show was really over and we rolled out.
Overall the renewal experience was fun! I think I have residual energy from last night even still. When I was driving to work this morning I hit a stop light. I pulled my visor down to check my face and for no reason I did the John Cena you can't see me thing when he waves his palm back and forth in front of his face. What made this funny was after I did it, something prompted me to look to my right and a young white lady was looking at me with a big ole' grin on her face. I was embarrassed for a hot second then I got over it. I wonder if she was there last night? Hmmmmm
Yes WWE is fake and yes sometimes you get more drama than a soap opera, but it's some great entertainment. Especially live!
