Stevie Ray Vaughan 'The Real Deal: Greatest Hits I'
The WWE was in Greensboro last night taping the show that will air on New Year’s Eve. I managed to wrangle up a pair of front row tickets for me and my brother-in-law Kevin. I think it was the first time for both of us to be sitting on the front row for a televised event. An event that will be beamed around the planet.
Our tickets didn’t exactly insure that we would appear on television. The tickets we got were on the camera side of the arena. They typically keep from filming on that side unless there’s action happening near the railing. And that’s what happened just last night with us!
JBL was in the ring showing his “wrestling god” powers by raising his hand for a mess of loud pyrotechnics to explode. The pyro was KISS-loud and KISS-plentiful!
Then Chris “Y2J” Jericho came out to spoil the “wrestling god’s” display of cueing the pyro tech.
Please keep in mind… I haven’t watched wrestling since WrestleMania back in March. I have no idea what the storylines are and why JBL and Y2J are feuding. But anyway… JBL jumps out of the ring and a brawl ensues!
They exchange punches and finally clamp together and head over to our area. The action was happening right in front of us! I was banging on the inside of the railing and yelling with excitement!
There was a moment where they were directly in front of me… I sensed that they were going over the railing and into our laps… So I backed up like a frightened little girl. Actually, I found it quite funny on the replay where I could watch it on the big screen.
So, if you want to see me on worldwide television… Tune into WWE’s Monday Night Raw at 9pm on the USA Network.
I’m easy to spot… I’m wearing my white Washington Redskins jersey with the number 66 on it. And if you’re looking at the ring during the long shots… I would be situated on the left side about where the steel ring post is. It’s quite possible that you’ll see me get up, cheer, and clap when the heels (bad guys) get the upper hand.
Here are some pictures that I took with my cell phone… Enjoy.
