Video from the WWE / Make A Wish Foundation / Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream Social

I went up to Scottsdale today around lunch time, to catch the WWE superstars as they are in town to tape ECW and Smackdown tonight. And I must say, they held the best ice cream social since the Holiday Village retirement community’s December 1996 fiasco. You know what I’m talking about.

Here’s Matt Hardy, thanking us for coming out and sharing in our excitement for Wrestlemania!

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
