In an ironic turn of events it looks like I am NOT going to Wrestlemania!
While I’ve been looking forward to Mania being in my home territory for months, and bought a handful of tickets for friends on the presale as noted above, I have been presented with the opportunity to attend The Masters practice round Monday - the day after Mania. This would require me flying down the Sunday of Mania
Over my years I’ve had three big passion-hobbies. Bruce Springsteen, Professional Wrestling, and Golf. The chance to see Augusta National in person has always been a dream and fortunately I’ve had a really good year at work and with these Masters tickets being made available to me I’m going to be taking my father as a trip/gift that I’ve had as a goal of mine for a long time (to be able to take him to see Augusta).
I am definitely torn about the decision as I’ve still never been to a Wrestlemania. But unlike Rock-Cena, this chance to take my father to The Masters is potentially a once in a lifetime thing because tickets are super rare and my father being able to walk the grounds in good health. I’m pretty much posting this as a source of therapy explaining my decision and putting it out to my corner of the Wrestling Community.
I will still be in the city Saturday for the ROH/New Japan show at the Garden where I have some of the best seats in the house and can not wait to add to the list of things I’ve been lucky enough to see at the Garden. I’m certain now that this Mania will be an all time event and you can all thank for me that since it’s my dumb luck that I can’t go in my backyard that it will turn into a show for the ages. That said, really hope to meet and see a bunch of you in the City for the weekends festivities.
If you bothered reading this, thanks for for letting me POST this.
