So I was wandering around Wizard World Chicago (a giant comic book convention) yesterday when I stumbled upon a table sitting underneath a banner which read, "WWF Superstar Virgil." No one was at Virgil's table, so I figured I would go talk to him. He was a nice enough guy, but all he wanted to do was sell me a $20 autographed photo, which makes sense 'cause that's what he was there for. Never really having the desire to own an autographed Virgil photo I tried to make some excuses, but he kept insisting. Eventually he called me a "chicken" for not wanting his picture (which I didn't really understand). So things were a little awkward, and I didn't know what else to say, so I pointed to a picture of him, Ted Diabase and Andre the Giant on the table, and in reference to Andre said, "so he was pretty big, huh?" Of course it was a stupid question, so he answered it appropriately by saying, "yeah, he was HUGE," in a tone like I was an idiot.
So that was my big brush with fame. Today and Tomorrow Al Snow will be at Wizard World, but I don't know if I am going to make it back there. I wonder if Al will be charging $20 a shot and trying to indimidate people into getting one.

Let's just hope to hell that the rumors about them bringing in Vince Russo are false. One of the executive producers has publicly denied the rumor, stating they were happy with their current team (as they should be)
