Superstars go to WrestleMania 3union
Several WWE Superstars descended on Detroit's Hockeytown Café to be part of the WrestleMania 3union. The event was a gathering of WWE fans and Superstars to celebrate WrestleMania III and 23, because both emanated from Detroit.
Over 500 WWE fans were in attendance to meet some of their favorite Superstars, and also had a chance to win prizes, which included tickets to this Sunday's WrestleMania 23.
Upstairs, Jeff Hardy, MVP, Marcus Cor Von, Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Brooklyn Brawler signed autographs. Meanwhile, Kristal and Jimmy Hart helped run trivia, trash talking, and thumb wrestling contests on the first floor. One of the highlights of the evening was a Jeff Hardy dance-off.
"It feels awesome, every time I come to Detroit it's electric," said Brooklyn Brawler. "I was the first man to step into the ring at WrestleMania III, and I'm looking forward to WrestleMania 23."
The mood at the Hockeytown Café was electric when WWE Superstars arrived. Some people had been waiting in line for five hours to meet some of their favorites. One fired up fan was even dressed as one of his all-time favorite Superstars: Hulk Hogan.
"I believe I had the very first ticket to WrestleMania III," said Eric Sirvis, who for 20 years has also called himself "Roddy Hogan." "First ticket, first row… It was a great show. I was hoping Hogan would be here, but I guess if he's not, then I have to represent. There have been rumors of Hogan sightings around town. As Vince McMahon would say, ‘Never say never,'" said Sirvis.
Sirvis already has his tickets for WrestleMania 23, making it his fifth time at the biggest event in sports-entertainment.
However, Morris Robinson and his sons Byron, Justin, and Morris Jr. said they were hoping to win tickets at the event.
"Even if we don't win tickets, we're going to watch it on TV," said Robinson.
"We like Jeff Hardy," Byron added. "I like the way he does his entrance and the Swanton Bomb."
