"O I miss you!!"

Last night, I was re-united with an old love: WRESTLEMANIA!!!

Gosh I was such a fan!! I have vivid memories of all the kids in my house placing bets on who’d win the Royal Rumble, loud arguments about who the greatest wrestler was- Hulk Hogan or Ultimate Warrior, and then finally everyone gathering in front of the TV to watch the wrestling bouts.

As a child I used to be in such awe of the entire spectacle that came with Wrestlemania. I would laugh and celebrate when my Champions won; cry and sulk when the ‘Bad Guy’ won. I would be vexed when an opponent came and challenged my Champion to a match, and scream insults at the Opponent through my TV.

In my mind, the world couldn’t have been more real than Wrestlemania. It was the most entertaining, and at that time, the closest thing to reality TV we had. I would fantasize for hours about being the ‘Elizabeth’ (you have to be as screwed up as I was if you can remember her) that a Wrestler would bring gloriously to stand by him as he battled for the Heavyweight Championship of the World.

Crap!! I can’t remember the name of the ‘Bad Chic’ (I think maybe Sherry or something), who was like the villain chic where Elizabeth was the Good Princess-like Lady. If I remember correctly, Elizabeth was Hulk-Hogan’s Lady, and then there was one instance in which he and Ultimate Warrior had to fight for her. My heart almost broke cos I had no clue who to support!!

My goodness!! To think that I believed every single bit of Wrestlemania was REALLL!! What other load of crap do I believe so passionately right now, I wonder?! Kai!! I would do almost anything right now, for a DVD box of old Wrestlemania re-runs!!

Who remembers all the moves?? The one I can never forget is the ‘Closeline'... probably because of all the random, just-for-the-heck-of-it ‘Closelines’ I chopped from my male cousins!! So we’d have to go around the house like it was World War 2 cos you had no idea where the next ‘Closeline’ would come from.
