Bobby “The Brain” Heenan is scheduled for an autograph signing of his book Chair Shots and Other Obstacles: Winning Life’s Wrestling Matches at Rob Van Dam‘s 5 Star Comics store down in Lakewood this Tuesday, April 13th, at 7:00 PM:
Quite possibly the greatest wrestling manager of all time, Heenan was recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Over the years, his numerous protÈgÈs included a virtual ìWhoís Whoî of legends, including the likes of AWA Champion Nick Bockwinkel, the Blackjacks, Big John Studd, King Kong Bundy, ìRavishingî Rick Rude, ìMr. Perfectî Curt Hennig, Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard, Harley Race, and of course, the first WWE Hall of Famer, Andre the Giantówhom Heenan led to the ring at WrestleMania III before 93,173 fans at the Pontiac Silverdome in 1987.
Meanwhile, WWE Judgment Day tickets at Staples Center went on sale this morning at 10:00 AM. Nah, I didn’t get any tickets. Somehow, the main event of Eddie Guerrero vs. John “Bradshaw” Layfield doesn’t have me excited one bit. Seems like I’m not the only one who isn’t excited for the pay-per-view, as I was able to pull up two $300.00 tickets (+$9.25 convenience charge!) for Floor Section 8, Row 2, Seats 3 and 4 (but hey, you get to keep the chair!), as well as two $90.00 tickets (+$7.00 convenience charge!) for Section 119, Row 13, Seats 5 and 6. I doubt that this event will sell-out, but if it does, it’s probably due to all the ticket scalpers and peeps looking to make a quick buck on eBay. :P
