Wrestlers on a Plane!

Posted by Sara / September 18, 2006

Undertaker-and-Paul-Bearer.jpg There are few things that can redeem a day that features frantic sprints through O'Hare and four-hour weather delays. But here's one of them: sitting two seats away from Undertaker!

Okay, he was in first class and I was skulking behind him in coach, digging through my bag for my die-cast Kane keychain and sneaking glimpses of his entourage of Armani-suited goons. But it was very exciting nonetheless. At 6'10" and 305 pounds of tattooed muscle, he didn't so much appear large as make everyone around him seem comically small.

It was the antithesis to a humid and mundane week spent in San Antonio. Undertaker's pyrotechnics-heavy, costumed, brooding, hellfire-and-Texas performance is what sucked me back into the fabulously wrong world of professional wrestling years ago, and although I have since drifted away from Monday Night Raw, seeing him again reignited my giddiness over all of that Baudrillardian hyperreality. When I finally made it home at 4 a.m., my head was spinning with over-hyphenated hyperbole and the improbable logistics of various mile-high scenarios - handily, Undertaker already has my name tattooed on his neck.

You too have a chance to open a can of your favorite flavour of whoopass/smell what the Rock is cookin/insert what the kids are saying these days at the WWE Raw+Smackdown SuperShow in Montreal TONIGHT! And tomorrow get your ass to Ottawa for TRYOUTS! Hell yeah!
