One of my favorite experiences of all time... was a special event where we put the wrestlers of Hulk Hogan's Micro Championship Wrestling into our video game, and they put us in their ring in front of a live audience. I squared off against my arch-enemy, the evil Chairman Platinum, in a match with the most embarrassing "end"-ing of all time.
It was an unexpected, and awesome surprise when the MCW crew invited me to come out to the mountains of Montana for a surprise show to reward the scholarship recipients of Kym's Kids. (Note: I am probably the only person who leaves Florida, to go to Montana to get a sunburn.)
I met the MCW crew, Jimmy "Mouth of the South" Hart, Tanaka, Brutus the Barber Beefcake, and Brian Knobbs of the Nasty Boys during a very special event we threw for my good friend, Rolith. I was his best man, and he was marrying our co-worker, Alina. Since I lead an ultra PG life... everyone expected a pretty dull bachelor party. They forgot about violence. Lots and lots of violence. I called in some serious favors and we gave him the most memorable night of his life. Over time I got to know the MCW crew really well and am proud to be friends with Sampson, Hillbilly, Huggy Cub, Blixx, Meatball, Jersey Jess, and their incredible manager Johnny G.
Pat Tanaka has an incredible story. His wrestling career spans Wrestlemania, the Orient Express, and, well.. you should read this for yourself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Tanaka
Jimmy "Mouth of the South" Hart is one of the most iconic managers in Wrestling history. He managed Hulk Hogan, Greg the Hammer Valentine and King Kong Bundy. He was also a member of the rock band, The Gentrys which is best known for the classic hit, "Keep on Dancing."
