WWE WrestleMania 28 SUPER STARS invade MIAMI

WrestleMania 28 invades Miami   BY: BENNY R. LORIE

I WANT START OFF BY SAYING THAT I’M A HUGE WRESTLING FAN. I MEAN HUGE! NOW FOR THOSE THAT KNOW ME PERSONALLY, I’M NOT ONLY KNOWLEDGEABLE WHEN IT COMES TO FOOTBALL, BASEBALL, AND BASKETBALL, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY I’M A PRO WRESTLING FAN. (NO NOT COLLEGE WRESTLING)BUT I’M TALKING ABOUT NOVLA WRESTLING, THAT’S RIGHT YOUR BOY IS A WWE FAN. AND I CAN GO WAY BACK TO A TIME, WHEN YOU HAD GREAT TALENTS PERFORMING IN THE SQUARED CIRCLE, TALENTS LIKE ANDRE THE GIANT, HOTROD ROWDY ROWDY PIPER, SUPER FLY JIMMY SUNKA, SGT. SLAUGHTER, RICK FLAIR, ULTIMATE WARRIOR, AND OF COURSE THE IMMORTAL HULK HOGAN.

UPON HEARING THE NEWS THAT THE WWE WAS ANNOUNCING THAT WRESTLEMAINA 28 WAS COMING TO MIAMI, I WAS LIKE A KID IN A CANDY STORE. I’VE BEEN TO THE ROYAL RUMBLE TWICE (BACK WHEN HOGAN WON, AND WHEN REY MYSTERO WON), AND ONE OF THE LAST ECW TAPINGS. BUT WERE TALKING ABOUT SHOWCASE OF THE IMMORTALS WRESTLEMAINA PEOPLE! I STILL REMEMBER TILL THIS DAY WHEN HOGAN BODY SLAMMED ANDRE THE GIANT, WARRIOR BEAT HOGAN FOR THE I.C. BELT AND WWE BELT. WHEN TAKER RETIRED HBK SHAWN MICHAELS, WHEN HOGAN BEAT SGT. SLAUGHTER, THE ROCK VS STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN MATCHUPS, AND OF COURSE MY PERSONAL FAVROITE WHEN THE ROCK DEFEATED HOLLYWOOD HULK HOGAN. AND I CAN GO ON AND ON AND ON.

IT WAS LIKE A DREAM THAT I HAD PLAYED IN MY HEAD THINKING WHEN WILL IT EVER COME TO MY CITY. THAN WITHOUT ANY THOUGHT OF IT ABOUT A MONTH PRIOR TO THE WWE’S VERSON OF THE SUPERBOWL I STARTED READING RUMORS imageOF MIAMI BEING ONE OF THE FINALISTS FOR THE CITYS TO HOST WRESTLEMAINA 28. ALL I KEPT THINKING WAS “IS THIS FINALY THE YEAR I GET TO SEE THIS EVENT THAT I NEARLY DROWLED ABOUT FOR YEARS.” AND WHEN IT CAME I HAD THE SAME REACTIONS THAT I HAD WHEN LEBRON JAMES JOINED THE MIAMI HEAT, THE MARLINS WINNING THEIR TWO WORLD SERIES TITLES, WHEN THE HEAT WON THEIR FIRST EVER NBA TITLE (AND FOR THE SAKE OF MY WIFE READING THIS, WHEN MY SON WAS BORN AND WHEN I MARRIED THE LOVE OF MY LIFE) .

I KNEW RIGHT FROM THE START, THAT ONCE I HEARD THE NEWS THAT IT WAS MY DESTINY, (SORRY ALBERTO DEL RIO OTHERS HAVE THEM TOO;)) TO GET MY TICKETS AND BE PART OF HISTORY THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE ONLY DREAM OF SEEING IN PERSON, WHEN I GOT THEM IT WAS A GREAT FEELING ( FOR THOSE THAT WANNA KNOW HOW I FELT PLEASE SEE A COUPLE OF SENTECES UP) CAUSE NOT ONLY I’M SEEING IT LIVE BUT I GET TO SEE A DREAM MATCHUP LIVE THE ROCK (ONE OF MY FAVROITES) V.S JOHN CINA WOW!!!!!!!

EVEN BETTER WAS THE FACT THAT FRIDAY NOVEMBER 04 T AT BAYFRONT PARK I WAS PART OF THE MEDIA TO COVER THE WWE’S OFFICAL START OF THEIR COUNTDOWN TO WRESTLEMAINA 28. THEY HAD EVERYTHING FROM SELLING TICKETS, FOOD, LIVE D.J.’S, LIVE BANDS, BUT ALSO THEY HAD TWO WWE LEGENDS SGT. SLAGHTER , AND JIMMY HEART. REY MYSTERO, THE BELLA TWINS, KELLY KELLY, AND ROSA MENDEZ. NOT ONLY WERE THEY THERE BUT THEY WERE SGINING AUTOGRAPHS TO THE FANS. , I GOT TO INTERVIEW THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE WWE, AND OF COURSE I’M TALKING ABOUT THE GREAT FANS OF THE WWE UNIVERSE, THE ONES THAT MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE. AND GUESS WHAT FOLKS THEY WERE AS JUBULINT AS I WAS ABOUT WRESTLEMAINA 28 BEING IN MIAMI NEXT APRIL. OH AND WHEN I INTERVIEWED THEM WE HAD PEOPLE DEBATEING WHO WOULD WIN BETWEEN THE MILLIONS OF THE ROCKS FANS OR CNATION, AND TO MY SURPRISE WE GOT IT PRETTY SPLIT CROWD. I EVEN HAD MASCOTS FIGHTING AGAINST ONE ANOTHER; I MEAN I HAD TO BREAK THEM UP. OVERALL IT WAS A GREAT EVENT THAT I TRULY ENJOYED NOT ONLY AS A FAN BUT AS A REPORTER ( OK FINE GO AHEAD AND LAUGH) SO ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS GUYS I HOPE YOU BOUGHT YOUR TICKETS, CAUSE YOU KNOW THEY WILL BE GONE WITHIN MINUTES OF THEM BEING AVAIABLE TO THE PUBLIC. SO UNTIL THAN LET THE GREAT DEBATE HAPPENED WHO WILL WIN CENA V.S. THE ROCK APRIL 1, 2012?
