I got to dance in a wwe ring

So I went to the live WWE show at the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

I don't remember all of the matches, but all in all was a great show. Not just in terms of a house show either, but just generally speaking. Now while anyone who was there will tell you the best moment of the night was when Zack Ryder came out dressed like the Ultimate Warrior, with the warrior's theme music to boot.

However my best moment happened about the halfway point of the night. Naomi came out (and I didn't know who she was at first either until we were told by the announcer Justin Roberts that she was the winner of the divas season of NXT) She said she needed four people from the audience for a contest. I had been to house shows before where they did this sort of thing, and I never expect to be picked no matter how much I yell, jump, and wave my hands. However something different happened this time. I actually got picked! Justin Roberts pointed to me, and with some help of a member of the event staff I got over the fence and went with the three other people picked from the audience into the ring.

Along with myself, was a teenage white girl who (14 or 15 would be my best guess), a teenage black girl about the same age, and a young boy in all John Cena gear who was about five or six years old. Also I noticed is that the ring is a lot more springy than expected. Anyway I got to go first, so I did the best moves I could with the music I could hear. It wasn't soft by any means, but I couldn't really hear enough of it to get the beat accurately. Still, while I didn't do anything acrobatic I just let go and let the rhythm move me. Yes I am a white guy who actually has rhythm.

The white girl was a bit nervous, so Naomi helped her out. The black girl basically just shook her booty. Then the little kid came up. He did some splits, somersaults, and hand stands. After that the winner was decided by audience reaction and if you won you would go backstage to meet the superstars. So the little kid ended up winning, the rest of us got free t-shirts as we left the ring. The problem was, the shirt I was given was a youth medium size. So since it obviously wouldn't fit me I was nice and gave it to the little kid sitting next to me.

While I didn't win I got to cross something off my bucket list. Get into a professional wrestling ring. Along with something that wasn't on there until I did it. Dance in front of a large crowd. It was a lot of fun, and surprisingly I wasn't nervous at all. I just got into the dancing and it was like no one else was there at all. It was a lot of fun and I would love to do it again.

Oh and the rest of the matches were great as well :)

  • 04:15 I hate it when it gets this hot. Means I wake up in bed all sweaty. Bleh! :p #
  • 07:23 It's like Katy Perry's voice is specifically designed to be an ear worm. #
  • 08:27 With how many falls Yosuke from Persona 4 has on his bike, you think he'd get a helmet at some point. #
  • 08:47 Still thinking about furry conventions. Unfortunately Furfright is a no go for me, and with work FWA is looking that was as well. #
  • 08:53 However, I have been looking and I am thinking Furry Fiesta is looking like it might be doable. #
  • 10:12 Just got back from my daily walk. The temperature outside is FUCK YOU IT'S HOT! #
  • 11:05 Now been looking over travel stuffs for Furry Fiesta and it is looking more and more doable for me. #
  • 11:51 Think I'll avoid tweeting about my lunch unless I'm having something interesting since I seem to have the same kinds of sandwiches often. #
