Three years ago Matt and I saw Wrestlemania in San Jose. We had attended the Monday Night RAW the following night and they had announced another RAW show in August. When it was finally our time to get seats after waiting in the long line, I joked we’d be in the last row. Matt was more optimistic, in fact he was pretty confident Roman Reigns would enter right near our section. It turns out he was right.
We had an amazing time at the show. The lineup featured a tribute to Rowdy Roddy Piper who had just passed on, and some other fantastic moments including having Seth trash talk his rival and the whole audience using their cell phones to be the “firefly” effect for the Wyatt Family’s promo that I put in a collage.
Matt and I had proudly wore our Suplex City San Jose Shirts to that first RAW. Unfortunately, that was the shirt of Roman Reign’s main rival. While we both cheered on many wrestlers, Roman was the only one Matt mentioned in our wedding vows, that he would cheer on Roman with me.
So as a major fan, when we went to RAW another time, I made sure to wear Roman’s shirt and stickers on my face, in case he came down our section a second time, which he did.
Our friends were amazed we were two for two with this. Matt had even joked he should buy a Powerball Ticket, but neither of us has.
On Monday RAW will again come to the SAP Center. With a new job for me that I can’t leave early from and William, there is no way for us to attend. Still, I look forward to bringing him to wrestling events in a few years when he can appreciate them.
