I need to finish compiling my "definitive" list, but I wanted to see what everyone else has on theirs. For those of you who may not know what I mean ... before you die, what are your goals AS A WRESTLING FAN? Are there any wrestlers you want to meet? Any wrestlers you want to see live? Is there anywhere, a city, country or a venue where you want to catch a show? Post it all here, and if there's anything on your list that you've "checked off," share those stories and experiences.

Looking forward to the responses.

The ones that I want to do:

  • I started watching every episode of Nitro + PPVs. However, I'm only in March 1996. I kind of stopped for some reason. I need to get back into it because... well, the nWo is coming.
  • I want to watch every episode of Raw and SmackDown! again. I'm a few months into Raw.
  • I want to watch every Ring of Honor show from 2002-2010. I've caught the last few and really loved them, so I want to go back and see what I missed.
  • I want to go to WrestleMania. Live. Maybe at MSG for WrestleMania XXX?
  • I would love to go to the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony to go with WrestleMania.
  • I really want to see an ROH show live.
  • Ditto for DGUSA.

The ones that I have done:

  • Attend a WWE Pay-Per-View (Backlash 2005 - Michaels/Hogan vs. Hassan/Daivari = EPIC)
  • Meet Bobby Heenan, Miss Elizabeth, and Bret Hart (Autograph signing sometime in 1998, when Bret was the WCW US Champion and part of the nWo)
  • Go to WWE Monday Night Raw and appear on television (12/29/2009 in Manchester, NH)
  • Go to a WWE house show (12/30/2009 in Portland, ME)
  • Go to a WWE Smackdown taping (Once sometime in 2001, then again on 6/22/2010, both in Boston, MA)
  • I don't remember what it was called, but Mick Foley and Bruce Prichard did a stand-up comedy show that I went to (Palace Theatre, Manchester, NH)
  • I'm going to the Royal Rumble in a couple of weeks in Boston, MA. My favorite WWE event of the year. I can't wait.

I think that's it. I'll edit this post if I can think of any more.

Well I'll be going to Wrestlemania this year so I'll just consider that off the list, and I think I'm going to see a show at MSG soon so that's off the list as well.

Seeing a big show in Japan would be really awesome. So I guess going on a tour of Japan seeing all the big and small companies at different venues would be on my bucket list.

I'm really lucky with the amount of things that I've seen as far as wrestling goes. Singing along to what was thought to be The Final "Final Countdown" at GBHVIII, seeing so many amazing matches. I've just about everyone that I've ever wanted to see wrestle in the US as well. After Wrestlemania I might honestly be able to say that I've done everything I can ever hope to do in the United States.

See a show in Budokan Hall

See a WrestleMania

See a PWG show in Cali stoned

Have a long philosophical discussion with Excalibur

See a Tournament of Death (and not get eaten by hicks)


Have done:
See an ROH show in New York.
Went to my first for Glory By Honor 8, had to see Nigel and Dragon's last match. Then again for Final Battle 09 (horror story of my wrestling life), and a third time for Glory By Honor 9.

See a show at the Arena.
All of the King of Trios 09 shows, and DGUSA's first show. Such an awesome venue. Even if it's next to rape avenue.

Here are a couple of mine:

- Attend a WWE show at Madison Square Garden. Yes, even though I have lived in NYC all my life, I have never seen WWE at MSG.
- Attend at least one WrestleMania.
- Actually, I'd like to go to all of the "Big Four" pay-per-views.
- Travel to Japan to catch at least one show at a place like the Tokyo Dome or Budokan Hall.
- Meet Steve Austin. There are so many other wrestlers I want to meet, but he's my favorite of all time.
- Catch one Tournament of Death live, which will hopefully happen for me this year.
- See The Undertaker wrestle live, preferably at a WrestleMania.

A couple of the things I've crossed off:

- Attend a wrestling show at the Hammerstein Ballroom.
- Attend a wrestling show at The Arena.
- Meet Bret Hart.
- See a world title change hands.
- Be part of a crowd so loud that the floor shakes. It NEVER gets old.
- See Misawa wrestle live.
- See Liger wrestle live.

Please don't make me use that avatar. And please tell me the WF stands for "Wrestling Forum" and not "Wrestle Friends"

I'm not going to make you use it. If you would like to, though, that would be a very nice gesture. And yes, the WF stands for Wrestling Forum. Gabe already trademarked Wrestle Friends for his next promotion.

Attend WM30 in NYC at MSG. And it'll be a pleasure to see the top indies, whoever they may be in three years, host shows at the Manhattan Center. God I hope TNA if it's still as shitty as it is now doesn't control that building that weekend.
