I was at the show in Mason City when Pat Tanaka popped that kid. The kid was talking smack to one of the Diamond Dolls and was following them back to the dressing room. He stuck his arm through the door to grab her and Tanaka got in the way.
I'm pretty sure I attended a MCW card around 1988 or 1989. I definitely remember a masked wrestler named "The Professional" on the show. This would have been in Northwood, IA. I'd love to the footage you have!
I'm ripping this off from someone on Twitter, but as much as I admire Shane's guts in doing those nutty stunts he shouldn't be an equal to the rest of the roster. It was absurd 15 years ago against Angle and it's dumber now that he's in his late 40s. But it's WWE, what are you going to do?
Exactly, that's what I've always hated about him being in there. It's not like you're going to see Adam Silver suit up for the NBA All Star Game. Basically, they're saying anyone can walk off the street and be a pro wrestler.
