As I have written many times, you never know what you will see at a Resistance Pro Wrestling show, but it will always be great. Such was the case when I the legendary Lin Brehmer of WXRT.
Brehmer's career with WXRT began in 1984. Almost thirty years later, Brehmer is still entertaining WXRT listeners.
Brehmer is simply a nice guy, too. At the R Pro event, I hoped for a quick picture and he hopped off the stage to make it a nicer picture. I asked for a quick minute for an interview and he gave us a nice chunk of time, certainly more than we imagined. We talked Chicago, music, wrestling and more. As my friend Chuck would say, "He is a true Renaissance man."
It was one of the many great experiences I have had at R Pro. I doubt I ever would have met Brehmer otherwise. This meeting remains one of the coolest celebrity encounters I have ever had.
