Sorry, St. Louis
Hey Folks! Hillbilly Jim here, coming to you from Memphis, Tenn. Sorry I missed y’all out in St Louis. Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart told me I missed another great one out there on the WrestleMania Fan Axxess Tour. “The Mouth of the South” said that not even cold weather could keep you fans out of the St. Louis Mills Mall. He really appreciated the energy and dedication that all you fans brought last weekend. Jimmy also mentioned that he loved talking to a lot of y’all about the history of the business.
I also spoke to my buddy Ron Simmons, and he loved the fans that came out to support the tour. He told me the energy was amazing this weekend. Ron has made a bunch of appearances on the WrestleMania Fan Axxess Tour, but this one was his favorite! He could not stop talking about how many of you came out to the Fan Axxess Tour, what a crowd!
I hope everyone enjoyed seeing Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch. Man, what a great tag team they have become. I look forward to bigger and better things from them in the upcoming years in the WWE.
Well, sorry again for missing you out in St. Louis. I’m off to catch a plane to head down to South Padre Island for Spring Break, WWE Style. We’re gonna do things up right down in Padre. We are pushing forward towards the big day, WrestleMania 23 live in Detroit on April 1. The countdown has already begun, and the excitement just keeps on growing as we get closer and closer to the big day! See ya’ll in Texas, baby! Woo!
