Facts About Me - WWE Style
November 3, 2016 6:57pm CST
Wow, I meant to post this earlier lol. I am doing another themed Facts About Me, and this one is WWE style... 1. I watched wrestling off and on when I was really little, but I didn’t become hooked on it until 1996, when I was 11 years old. We were watching a tape of the 1996 Royal Rumble, I saw Shawn Michaels… and the rest is history. :) 2. My favorite wrestlers, past and present, are Shawn Michaels, Randy Orton, John Cena, Cody Rhodes, Undertaker, Ted DiBiase Jr., Jeff Hardy, Matt Hardy, Edge, Bret Hart, Stone Cold Steve Austin, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Bret “Hitman” Hart, Lita, Trish Stratus, Triple H, Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Road Dogg Jesse James, Enzo and Cass, Fandango, The New Day, Sasha Banks, Christian and sooo many others. I think I have more favorites than least favorites to be honest. 3. My collection includes t-shirts, hats, jewelry, trading cards, magazines, DVDs and figures. Let’s keep in mind that I have been collecting the merch since the 90s, and a good chunk of it is in storage. I have paused on the hoodies and figures right now until I have more space. 4. I attended my first Wrestlemania in 2013. It was Wrestlemania 29 in NJ/NY, and it was my first big trip without any family members. I went with some of my best friends. :) We attended a charity event, Axxess (basically a WWE convention), the Hall of Fame, Wrestlemania 29, Raw and Smackdown. I saved up for an entire year and even found myself doing extra work at times, and it was all worth it because it was one of the best weeks of my life. I saw friends I don’t get to see often, met a bunch of wrestlers and visited Times Square for the first time --- so worth it. :) 5. My other wrestling related trips include a weekend in NY/Philly (two local promotion shows and a Shawn Michaels signing), overnight Royal Rumble 2014 trip and weekend SummerSlam 2015 trip. I currently do not have any trips planned, but hopefully the opportunity will pop up again in the near future. 6. The WWE PPVs I have attended include WWE Backlash 2008, Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2011, Wrestlemania 29, Royal Rumble 2014, Payback 2015 and SummerSlam 2015. The other events I attended were regular TV tapings or non-televised shows. 7. I know wrestling is not everyone’s cup of tea, but as you can see, it’s something that *I* enjoy. I have had many awesome experiences and met some of the best friends I could ever have thanks to it. Alrighty, I’m gonna get back to my work, but I’ll try to make another post soon. You all have a good evening and I’ll catch you later! :) Photo Credit: I made this “Wrestling Fan” graphic using PhotoImpact 6.

@tammys85 The former NXT booker is now the one that books smackdown that is why the blue brand is doing well. No wrestler felt like a jobber in Smackdown because everyone were booked like stars.

I always know you are a WWE fans, but I didn't know you started loving it since you were so young. Yes, it's really not something I like, perhaps I have not really watch it before and do not plan to do so, but I am always happy for you while reading you enjoy it so much.
