  1. Six flags louisville ky 2006 rained out show, the look in your eyes and-passion to prove it. simply know your trade and do it with all your heart,love what you do,and dont let corporate b.s. stop you from attaining your goals. thanks for taking a moment in the pouring rain to talk to me and my son on the day i was supposed to be in NY for my new job, even though i am now fully disabled from taking the job a week later, you kept me watching and waiting to see an artist at work when they let you. i tried to become one of your friends list but it didnt happen. i’m returning this thing today and going back to “hermit life” like i have been for the past 8 years. You are the best…thank you for your time and someday if i ever watch wrestling again…you better be the man to watch, dont lose it. Peace
