Funny How That Happens..

At the end of this month there will be an event called Wrestle Reunion in Tampa, Florida featuring some of the biggest stars that ever graced the squared circle. My friends Playboy Buddy Rose and Ed "Col. DeBeers" Wiskoski will be in that event, too. I'm not sure if the thing is going to be a success or not, but I'm glad so many wrestlers are getting such a nice payday.

It's funny how things all tie in sometimes. I watched my first wrestling match in 1978 when I lived in the San Francisco area, and that match featured Playboy Buddy Rose. When I wrestled, I had a pair of black boots made, which I have since sold to Buddy Rose, and he'll be wearing these very boots at Wrestle Reunion in perhaps the last major match of his career. Likewise, Ed will be wearing a pair of Col. DeBeers trunks that he gave me for some work I did for him.

I don't know what all of this means, but I hope my friends enjoy themselves in Florida, visiting with their contemporaries.
