Update April 7, 2010
I'm scrambling now to make my way to the Calgary airport. I'm looking very much to this WWE tour of Europe and the markets that probably loved me the most. So many memories; Berlin, I really had some terrific matches there. I hope that my German fans will come out for what could be my last time ever. I recall Vince McMahon telling
me once "that Germany has never come back since you left in '97".
From there Glasgow, another city filled with great memories, in and out of the ring. Although I saw a great crowd turnout for my book signings last summer, I hope Glasgow and all the Hitman loyalists come out for the pink and black.
Dublin, so many fans came out for AWR only a short time back for a tour all over Ireland. What a great trip with stars like Tatanka and Scotty 2 Hotty, but working Dublin for WWE will have to stand out as one of my best cities anywhere. Sheffield should be interesting as well with my old boxing buddy, Big Joe Egan, coming to see me. It'll be great to throw down the suds and talk about what the hell I'm even doing there. Manchester is another great town for me going all the way back to the old Max Crabtree days with Joint Productions. Looking forward to talking to some of the terrific UK workers like Shemus, Drew MacIntyre, Finley, William Regal, even Katie Lee Burchill, all old and new friends I've come to have respect for.
Anyway, glad to see the Hitmen up 2-1 in the second round of the playoffs over the Medicine Hat Tigers, but the Tigers have always been tough with great, loyal fans that can make all the difference in the world. Gotta go! - Bret
