Okay, I'm not sure how much interest there is in this story around here, but I saw something about `brushes with greatness' here a while ago, and well, this is pretty close to that.

So last night, my brother and I go to see The Rundown at a Toronto theater. WWE Canada President Carl DeMarco is comped so he can get in for free (I've written about my problems with DeMarco here before, and this didn't help my opinion of him any. I mean, come on, a movie costs, what, $12?) Anyways, don't worry; that wasn't my brush with greatness.

We leave the theater around midnight, and a fellow wienerboard member calls to tell us we should DROP whatever we're doing and head to an uptown nightclub. So we follow his advice, wait in line to get in the club, get escorted by our friend to the VIP Room and who do we see... Rhythm and Blues! Reunited at last!!!

Honky Tonk Man and Greg Valentine were sitting at a table, drunk as all hell, and both were well past their physical primes. The sad thing is, pretty much no one wanted to hang out with them. Even I, who was a huge Honky Tonk mark back in the day, couldn't bring myself to walk over and ask them something ("So....uh.... you guys look out of shape....")

For those who were wondering, Honky Tonk has long hair now, was decked out in a Hawaiian-style T-shirt, shorts (which was odd, considering it isn't really shorts-wearing weather anymore in TO), and we're pretty sure he stole some cutlery from the table and put it in his fanny pack (Hard times, sigh). Valentine was just in jeans and a T-shirt, and a shinguard (just kidding).

Oh, and finally... the story about them being paid per `bump' that was mentioned here on this board... totally true. I find that fascinating for some reason.

Upon leaving, we half-expected to see Jake passed out near the bar, or Hercules Hernandez bouncing, but no such luck.

That's it. My exciting evening with Rhythm & Blues.

It was bound to happen sooner or later

-500 points for not trying to strike up a conversation with thim.

-1000 points for not having a camera on you.

And who is this fellow wiener who hooked you up with the tip?

I can't believe you passed up the chance to ask if Peggy Sue swallowed.

Damn, where were you when I needed you? So many things have come to mind since then, but the other night... nothing. Perhaps I was just in awe of the greatest Intercontinental champion of ALL time.

Probably not, though.

And with regards to the wiener-in-question, I'm just waiting for his okay to reveal the name. Not that it should be a huge deal or anything, but he has a possible business deal pending, so.... yeah.

You mean yoiu hada chance to get another EXCLUSIVE, JAM-PACKED interview? Just think of the fun you could have had! Asking confusing questions (what was your favorite match against the Hart Fund?) to two drunk wrestlers...

How ironic would it be for WWE progamming to air on Turner Networks?
