An excellent return to the Pittsburgh area for me. My last match in the area was my swan song in the NWA back in December of '06, so this return was four years in the making. It felt pretty good to get a nice pop from the crowd when my music hit, before I even came thru the curtain. The match itself was OK - I got the win over a couple of promising young rookies in a three way.
Unlike most of the crowds from my last run through Pittsburgh, the RWA fans were pretty loud and into things all night long. For a hot summer night the crowd was good - the above picture was taken before the first match, and the fans hadn't all filed into their seats yet. In talking with RWA officials after my match, things look excellent for RWA becoming a regular part of my schedule, along with Black Diamond Wrestling, Dynamic Championship Wrestling, and World Wrestling Coalition.
