Friendly Encounters:Matt Meets Sean Waltman at Resistance Pro Wrestling

This is a weekly series about friends who have met celebs.

Matt "Big Money" Parker, Contributor Extraordinaire for Johngy's Beat, and I first encountered Resistance Pro Wrestling last year at Wizard World.  We all have come a long way since then. 
At R Pro's March event, their special guest was Sean Waltman, perhaps better known as X Pac.  Sean wrestled a match and was at the pre- and post-show meet-and-greet.
I figured Sean would be a tough interview to get, since time was limited and he was in huge demand.  Matt encouraged me to push forward and ask anyway.  Surprisingly, Sean took the time to give us a pretty cool interview (found here).  Once again, Matt proved why he is called "Big Money".
After the interview, Sean eagerly posed for a photo with Matt.  How cool is that?  Much credit goes to Sean for being so fan friendly.
Much credit also goes to Resistance Pro for bringing in Sean and other legendary wrestlers and for their own roster of wrestling talent.  R Pro continues to go above and beyond to put on a top show every time.  We are continually impressed with the effort everyone involved puts into every aspect of their events.
Their next wrestling event is on June 15 at Excalibur, but before that, Resistance is coming to the south side for a major celebration of their television debut!  On this Thursday June 7th at 115 Bourbon Street (3359 West 115th St. Merrionette Park, IL), you can watch Resistance Pro's WCIU tv debut from 6pm to 9 pm with Eric St. Vaughn and the Pro Resistance Gang.  This is an event you will tell your children about (or you can bring them along, since it is an all ages event).
Seriously, it will be a great time.  The R Pro family has worked so hard and this is a great milestone for them and their fans.
I am not employed by R Pro.  I hope I am considered part of their family though (maybe like a second cousin or something).  I am just a huge fan of their product and their talent and I want to help put the word out there that this is special.  Come out this Thursday to 115 Bourbon Street or on June 15 at Excalibur and find out first hand.
