Re: Imagine if this man returns for the 2012 Royal Rumble as a surprise entrant
Three years ago, Sid was supposed to work for the promotion I work for, 304 Wrestling in Huntington, West Virginia. He was paid half his booking fee, his flight was paid for (which was the deal for him to come work). One of our wrestlers drove to Columbus, Ohio to pick him up at the airport, only, he never showed up at the airport. People accused us of baiting and switching because we had made him the focal point of our advertising (some of which I do, the posters). I used to be a fan of his, too.
Live and learn, I guess. We've paid less money for better talent since then, like Matt Cross, Brutus Beefcake, and last Sunday, Billy Gunn.
