Funk’s Corner – NWA Wrestling Legend’s Fanfest – What do you say to a legend?
NWA Wrestling Legends FanFest kicks off tonight in Charlotte North Carolina and continues through the weekend. You will have the opportunity to meet many of the true legends of professional wrestling.
What do you say to a wrestling legend?
It all starts with a good introduction (Self introduction or other) and a firm and sincere hand shake with a look in the eyes of the legend you are meeting.
Cleanliness, dress and cosmetic appeal give off first impressions. (Dress for the occasion)
Compliments on a wrestler’s work are graciously accepted.
Professional wrestlers work hard to please the wrestling fans be they faces, heels or just good workers. The wrestling business in itself is so competitive for the top spots compliments for good work are often forgotten as in the business, good work is expected all the time.
When you compliment a wrestler be sure you mention the time, place so recall will be easy and your sincerity verified. They will recall the incident and most likely your face and name.
There is no need to refer to yourself as “Smart, With it or to try to speak Carney to a wrestler. They will know your sincerity and knowledge of the business by your demeanor.
Do not ask if they remember you from a meeting at a wrestling show from some time in the past. You would be putting them on the spot and leave them uncomfortable. It is better to introduce yourself giving your name and telling them some place you have met in the past.
Above all enjoy yourself and have a good time at NWA Wrestling FanFest in Charlotte, North Carolina. I will be looking forward to meeting so many of the wrestling fans who have been good to me for so many years.
