A weekend of Wrestling fun!

So, if you are here from the Psychotaku’s site, you know that he wrestles part-time as Hop Sing Lee for Big Time Wrestling in Newark, California.  Well, they had their version of Wrestlemania this weekend called Wrestlefest.  It was EPIC.  First off, it wasn’t held at the normal place (Newark Pavilion), it was held at the Fremont Marriott…which is super nice.  It was a pretty big event and it sold out to a crowd of 600 people.  They had special guests like Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Hardcore Holly, Generation Me, the Iron Sheik, Daffney, Awesome Kong, Yyan Nakano, Paul London, Brian Kendrick, Road-Dogg, and even Bret “The Hitman” Hart was suuposed to be there.  Bret, however, was the only guest that didn’t show up.  Which wasn’t a big deal, they had a full card and the night was great! 

Mark and I only attended the actual wrestling portion of it since a full day of crazies at a Wrestling convention isn’t our idea of a great time, plus, we had to get lunch with a friend who has been helping us out with the Psychotaku.

Mark and his Tag Team partner (L’Empereur) are the current Championship title holders and they hold the championship belts.  They went first, a battle for the belt against the Ballard Brothers.  Yes, THE Ballard Brothers…they are a pretty big deal since they have taught some of the greatest wrestlers out there, including John Cena and Generation Me.  Pretty cool, right?  So they had a great match (no one got hurt too bad, thank goodness) and, unfortunately, Mark and L’Empereur lost the belt to the Ballards.  Since they have held the title for over a year now, it wasn’t too big of a blow. Also, both sides cheat like crazy so it was pretty entertaining.

All of the other matches were great too…I don’t have time here to type EVERYTHING out, come on!  Visit Big Time Wrestling  if you want all the pics and insider information.

The coolest thing really is that the promoter of the show, Kirk White, came up to us during dinner and asked us if we wanted to crash at the hotel since it was getting late and it takes a little over a half hour to get to where we were staying from there.  He said that since Bret Hart didn’t show up, he had an extra room.  So yeah.  We got to stay in Bret Hart’s room…hehe…I know it is silly, but I thought it was pretty cool when we were checking out and the listing for our room was “Hart, Bret”.  I mean, he is a legend!

Anyway, it was a great weekend.  I got to work on my scripts for my new show (which I hope everyone will like!!) so it was a productive and interesting time.
