Okay, this could be a little long-winded, but I figured it’s a pretty random story. I mean, how often do you get to pick up a woman at a WRESTLING show?
We go back to KOTR 1997 in Providence, RI. The highlights included a great Austin/HBK match, HHH winning KOTR and a Farooq/UT main event. (Okay, MOSTLY highlights) I was able to get 3rd row seats for $150. Hey, this was 1997 after all! My friend, Paul and I had Seats 2-3 right on the wrestler’s entrance aisle. It turns out that Seat 1 was occupied by a pretty young female in her mid-20’s. Being a single guy in my mid-20’s, I quickly chose Seat 2.
We arrived in our seats about 45 minutes before bell time. I had never been so close to the ring, so my buddy and I spent most of our time acting like teenage girls at a Spice Girls show. (1997 remember?) My female neighbor spent a good deal of time taking pictures and acting far too calm for being in the 3rd row of a wrestling PPV. I decided to strike up some random conversation, asking her if she was here alone (she was!) and how she got the tickets, etc. Turns out she was from Germany, living in NYC and never had been to a show before. She had taken the bus to Providence by herself and was going to Raw in Hartford the next night. She didn’t know too many people in NY and decided she’d rather go by herself than not at all. You could literally see the animated hearts coming from my body as she kept talking. I thought I was the only moron that traveled hundreds of miles by myself to see wrestling shows!
It turns out she was a HUGE Bret Hart fan and made a cute little Hart Foundation sign. Unfortunately, Bret had a bum knee so he couldn’t wrestle. He did make an appearance with the Hart Foundation for an interview, though. She was literally 10 feet from him and was barely able to control herself. I swept in for the kill. Okay, that’s a lie. In reality, I pretty much crapped on her for being a Bret Hart fan and told her that HBK and Stone Cold were far better. I’m such a smooth talker. LADIES, START LINING UP!
Anyway, since we were in the 3rd row, we were allowed to keep our chairs from the event. One problem for her: how was she going to take her chair on the bus? I gallantly offered to FedEx the chair to NY for her during the week. Basically, it was an underhanded attempt to get her phone number, but whatever. She agreed and we swapped information, but unfortunately we did not swap spit. I honored my commitment and sent the chair out that week. I got a thank you letter in return, along with pictures from the event. I thought that would pretty much be the end of things, until I got a call a few weeks later:

“Hi Shane, it’s Lidija… from the wrestling show….”

“Hey, how’s it going? I, uh… meant to call you…but…uh….”

“Oh, that’s fine. I wasn’t sure if I had given you my number and…well… are you going to Summerslam? Bret is going to wrestle!”

Now, Summerslam was in New Jersey that year. Bret Hart was taking on the Undertaker for the title, with HBK as the ref. Austin was also fighting Owen Hart for the IC title. Now that I think about it, the show was subtitled “Hart & Soul”, which was always one of my favorite PPV titles.
But, I digress… Basically, she was inviting me to come down to NYC for the weekend and go to the PPV on Sunday night. I quickly checked TM Online and got us a pair of balcony seats. I booked my train ticket and hotel room and I was set for a weekend of rasslin’ and romance in the Big Apple!
Since this is already becoming long-winded, I’ll wrap this up quickly. I ended up going and having a wonderful time. Bret won his fifth (and last) title, so she was a happy camper. The Austin injury put a damper on things, but otherwise the show was a blast. I was able spend a weekend in New York with a beautiful woman and the PPV was icing on the cake. Unfortunately, it turns out she was only in the US for another few weeks, before family issues forced her to return to Germany. She dropped me a quick note before she left with her address, promising to keep in touch, etc. Alas, I never heard from her again. Tragic, no?
So, the moral of the story is this: YOU CAN TOTALLY GET LAID BECAUSE OF WRESTLING! Well, that and you never know whom you’re going to run into in life. Who would have thought that Vince McMahon would ever be a catalyst for romance?

LOL, that's a great story, outside of the ending. Let that be a lesson to the folks at WWE and on this board, some women DO watch wrestling as long as men, and not just for the men (though it doesn't hurt).

This'll certainly never happen to me...

(Though maybe that's cause you're a fat slob...)

SHUT UP, VOICE IN MY HEAD!

(Haw-Haw!)

*sob* I hate you.

Or.. you meet a beautiful girl, you convert her into a wrestling fan(Mondays and Thursdays are sacred to us), and then you marry her :)








Utilizing the belief system and work ethic (Mattributes) of THE Matt Hardy to create a better life for yourself by fulfilling your goals and dreams. Mattitude is a quality that can help anyone -- regardless of background or past -- to achieve success. You just have to make it a lifestyle, a mindset, a religion. Mattitude, is something that can not be taught or learned. Mattitude is something that burns within. In the ring, Mattitude is the intangible, the x-factor, that gives me an advantage over everyone else.

Very good story. You should send this to CRZ to post at Slash.

I was also at the Summerslam 97 in Jersey and it was awesome. The crowd really liked Bret as well, that may have been the most over he had gotten. That was a time where it was easy to get third row tickets.

Exactly!

Mine really sounds like Nelson, and really hates me.

(He's right, for once!)

Would you shut up for just a minute?

(Make me, fatty!)

Why you...

Good story, and I will definitely need to bring you along Simba the next time I go to a wrestling show in Philly. (Are you available in November for the FU Center house show :-)

You can sit two rows above where I sit and feed me lines like Cyrano.

I'd like to see a film based on this. Use Wishbone as narrator, Sean William Scott as Torchslasher, and Patrick Warburton as Simba, and you'd have the highest grossing film of all time.

I wish I could help. Unfortunately, my luck in Philly hasn't been great. I was there for SD! back in March, but the women quotient was pretty weak and/or Jersey. I did have a little luck at a house show in Trenton, but she was a Big Show fan. Seriously. I knew that we could never be together. Rock? Expected. Bret Hart? Fine. BIG SHOW? Next, please...
However, I'll be in full effect at the 11/4 Raw in Boston. Here's hoping there are no Chelsea girls with crushes on Albert.

Stifler gets to play me? Works for me...that dude is in every crap movie.

And Simba, I feel your pain. Whenever I see cute chicks at wrestling shows, they always ruin it by almost having an orgasm when any boy named "Hardy" just happens to walk out from behind the curtain. I am no match for Mattitude!

They've been using him a lot in both OVW and in dark matches as part of a tag-team with Joey Matthews. Speaking of which, Matt Capotelli and Johnny Jeter have been tag-teaming a lot lately in OVW and in WWE dark matches as well.
