I am a WWE, Inc. [World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc.] fan since I can’t exactly remember when. As I try to recall, I might only be nine or ten when I began cheering with my younger brother for our favorite ring entertainers Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, The Million Dollar Man, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Triple H and Yokozuna as they battled for championship belts inside the ring. Back then, it was still called WWF [World Wrestling Federation]. Great fun!
During my early years in secondary school, the Hart brothers, Bret and Owen entered WWF in style with their pink and black tights and sunglasses. For some years, these two had became our favorites. When Owen began his run as a “heel”, I got really frustrated. When Owen fell to his death in May of ‘99, I really felt so sorry for him. Although I stopped liking him as an entertainer, my respect for him as a person went on up to this moment.
In connection to my addiction to WWF and/or WWE, in 2006, I fell in love with the guy [Bebe] whose addiction to WWE is way beyond mine. Life’s truly full of surprises, isn’t it? Bebe has piles of wrestling collections --- from the simple playing cards to WWW magazines, action figures, shirt and signed photos. He even got featured once in our local paper because of this “weird” hobby of his.
A few of Bebe's WWE action figure collection. And yes! There's Bret Hart!

On "hearting" the Harts --- While I go for Bret, Bebe’s two thumbs up are always meant for Owen. Since Owen’s death, Bebe has included Calgary Alberta, Canada in his travel wishlist so we can visit Owen’s grave in the Queens Park Cemetery. We’ll check Rentals in Calgary [http://www.rentcalgary.com/] online for an apartment or a small house during the short stay. The Canada vacation’s date is not yet fixed. Hopefully, sometime in 2013 or 2014. Although it’s going to be years from now, I am excited to see the beauty of Canada.
Oh, we still haven’t seen the latest WWE Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown. Hmmm… we have some catching up to do!
How about you? Do you watch WWE? If so, who’s your favorite WWE entertainer?
