Bringing back my Youth in the Ring

So far in the Calender year we have seen shocking returns of Kevin Nash, Booker T, Trish Stratus and Non wrestling returns of The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Plus once again the return of Undertaker and HHH from Injuries as well.

I met Kevin Nash in 1995 in Hartford Connecticut. I was 18 at the time. He towered over me, as one might expect. It was an amazing exiperience to be that close up to someone that you have watched on TV.

While I have never met Booker T, Stratus, The Rock, Austin or HHH I was about ten feet away from the Undertaker that day as well. And this is old School total Deadman Undertaker. I did meet Paul Bearer that day. Talked to me in his normal voice, not the Paul Bearer voice. It was rather disturbing.

So far this year is shaping up to be a pretty good year in Wrestling. I know a lot of people arent happy that Alberto Del Rio won the Royal Rumble. But I know they are looking to push new stars. And While he is a heel right now, Mysterio won't be around for ever. And they are going to need to keep the Hispanic children watching. I think in time Del Rio can be this generations Rey.

I really hope we dont see Michael Cole vs Jerry Lawler at Wrestlemania. That has the potential to knock Lesnar-Goldberg down as the worse Wrestlemania match ever!
