My adventure at WWE Monday Night Raw March 2, 2010

HBK and Triple H

$30 T-shirts, big shiny belts, and men with long hair wearing speedos- Does this sound like a good time? The idea of going to WWE Monday Night Raw was not really one I was willing to entertain until my city boy got us free tickets. I mean, what else were we going to be doing on a Monday night? We have a house guest to keep entertained too, his little sister, so we couldn’t turn down the opportunity!

Upon arrival there was a sea of fans lined up at all entrances. I loved the idea of getting to walk past them and take our places inside (mostly because I didn’t have on a coat)! We reach the door to the concourse guarded by the sweetest little granny. We gave her our names and we were let into a holding area of sorts. After talking to a few people I realized these weren’t just any free seats, we are seat fillers! When the time approached for the matches to begin they started to let over 10,000 fans flood the Ford Center. Every walk of life you could imagine was there, and their mama’s too!

Finally a producer came to wrangle us into a room.  He explained that we have free tickets on the floor of the arena and we’re to wear a bright orange wrist band that nobody else in the building would have. We were instructed to stay in our seats for the first hour and anytime that anyone in the view of the camera left their seat a producer might come get you to fill their seat until they return. There were few woman and mostly men in the seat filling group. When the producer said “Tonight you work for the WWE!” they let out a very manly exclamation. I knew then that this might not be something I will enjoy.

A view of the crowd.
We get into our seats and the energy in the room was amazing! The Ford Center was filled to the brim with wresting fans and their big posterboard signs. Wrestlers that nobody had heard of were throwing each other around the ring, the fans were still into it nonetheless. Then the real show started. The pyro was booming, the crowd was going wild, and most importantly the cameras were rolling. I saw one couple hold their baby up to the camera as it passed by, it kind of reminds me of the scene in the Lion King when they hold Simba up for all to see. (Skip to the 3:05 minute mark to see that part or watch the whole thing to get that warm fuzzy feeling)
I think after the first match we decided it was time to go bowling and we ditched Monday Night Raw. I didn’t get to fill a seat but within the hour and a half that I did stay I think I got the whole experience. (Insider Note: There aren’t any commentators. They are only for TV so it felt kind of awkward watching two guys fight without some sort of explanation) The highlight of the night was being within reach of Kevin Durant and James Harden of the Oklahoma City Thunder. I screamed when I saw them and almost stroked out. I will be at their game tonight and we have great seats. I will try my best to get some good pics to post! I mentioned earlier that we went bowling, yes we did. We played one game and I bowled a 48. No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you that is in fact 48. At the end of our bowling when we turned our shoes in the man “disinfected” our shoes with Oust Air Freshener! I almost threw up and immediately put on my Nectarine Mint Hand Sanitizer! There’s a difference between air freshener and disinfectant Mr. Bowling Man! The End.

“Warrior and Bowtie Expert. Linebacker and Poet. Jock and Treehugger: Dhani Jones understandsthe extremes of life. An NFL player with the Cincinnati Bengals, Jones rides a bike to the stadium for practices & games, works with Al Gore’s climate change initiative and is on Feeding America’s entertainment council to end hunger. Jones is now starring in the Travel Channel’s new original series, DHANI TACKLES THE GLOBE. By actively participating in some of the most beloved national pastimes from around the world, Dhani discovers that sports have the universal ability to open a window into a culture; define a destination; and unlock a common passion in people that is as different as it is familiar. His huge love for living, authority on sport and understanding of the big issues of climate change make Dhani a key player in sport and sustainability. No wonder that in Hindi, “Dhani” means thinking man.” -Biography on Dhani’s website.

I had to post this item from Dhani’s website because it eloquently describes everything I see in him. What more could a girl ask for? I found out who Dhani Jones is not by watching football, but by watching the Travel Channel. I just love Dhani Tackles the Globe! Follow the “cyber stalker” links below!

This week’s “Dapper” man is Channing Tatum, need I say more? Channing was born in Alabama and moved to Mississippi as a small child. As a teenager he relocated to Florida. In high school Mr. Tatum was quite the athlete, receiving a scholarship to play football for Glenville State College in West Virginia. However, he turned down his scholarship. Later Channing began working as an exotic dancer under the name “Chan Crawford” in a local night club. He then moved to Miami where he was discovered by a talent scout. Tatum began his career as a fashion model  before beginning his acting career. For more information on Channing Tatum and his accomplishments you can visit his official Website. I’ve also included his twitter and facebook pages for further “cyber stalking” after the jump.

I’m starting a new category called “Dapper”. I will be posting a new “Dapper” man to share. For the first installment I’ve decided on Reggie Bush in honor of the Saints’ Superbowl victory. 


Mr. Bush is the running back for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints. Born and raised in San Diego, CA, Reggie attended the University of Southern California. During his time at USC they had two National Championship seasons and in 2005 he was awarded the Heisman Trophy. In January 2006 Bush decided to forgo his Senior year at USC and declare his eligibility for the NFL Draft, where he was the second overall pick. Now with a Superbowl ring on his finger the only thing left is to put a ring on Kim Kardshian’s finger, his long time girlfriend. Want more of Reggie Bush? Follow the links below!
