Howdy from the Alamo City
The Royal Rumble…can you believe the excitement and energy of this colossal event? Undertaker took the big win in what can definitely be called one of the best Royal Rumbles in history. The hometown boy Shawn Michaels was ever so close, but in the end, it was the Deadman taking HBK down as well as 28 others! And how about my man John Cena wrapping a rope around the neck of Umaga and choking him out? WOW, what a way for Cena to be the Last Man Standing!
Thank y’all for coming out to the WrestleMania Fan Axxess Tour out here in San Antonio. The fans in San Antonio were great to us. We got to hang out with so many of the great Superstars this weekend, from Carlito to Mickie James. Even Mr. Kennedy was a hoot! Well, maybe not, but the fans still liked to be up close with Mr. Kennedy…Kennedy! Okay, enough of that!
We had so many Superstars stop in for a visit and sign some autographs. One Superstar in particular seemed a little uncomfortable in my presence this week on the tour. I don’t blame Matt Striker for being that way. Do y’all remember the beating that I gave him last year in Atlanta? Haha, it was great! No need to feel uncomfortable though, Matt. You’re always welcome to hang out with Hillbilly Jim at the WrestleMania Fan Axxess Tour. And you fans are too, of course! I look forward to visiting with each and every one of you, as we make our way to Detroit on April 1 for WrestleMania 23.
The next stop is Phoenix. See you there!
