There was a night in the early 2000s that everyone around me, including Double T, was pretty sure I was getting beat up.

April 17th 2000, WCW pro wrestling was at The Rockford Metro Centre and a guess I had a target on my forehead.

Giant meathead Pro Wrestler Scott Steiner was in Rockford for the wrestling show and instantly didn't like me. I was in the front row with Double T and apparently I was too loud or something. It's a pro wrestling show, boo the bad guys and cheer the good guys right?

Scott Steiner appeared several times that night, each time making it a point to yell louder and get even closer to me. There was one point where I even received a "gentle" head butt from "Big Papa Pump."

I'll never forget a fan turning to me and saying, "dude be careful he's pissed at you".

As the night came to a close and the T.V. cameras were shut off he approached me and got nose to nose, "thanks brother," and he walked away. I was part of the show and I loved it.

I get to relive all this using the WWE Network, good times. If you would like to get up close and personal with WWE stars and hopefully not get a headbutt, click on the link below. We want to send you and a guest to Wrestlemania 33 in Orlando.
