It isn't often that I have an opportunity to be around people who inspire me, but on Saturday, April 9—tomorrow—I will have a chance to meet three men I've come to admire, not only for their stellar wrestling careers, but also for the way they've carried themselves in the face of serious medical illness.
As somebody who has lost several family members to cancer and neuro-cerebral disease, it will be a pleasure and an honor to meet Rick Steamboat, Lex Luger, and Bobby Heenan, all of whom will be on hand at the K&S WrestleFest at the Airport Ramada Inn in Essington, Pennsylvania, from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm., and all of whom have fought severe illness in recent months.
Aside from these three legends, 2011 Hall of Fame inductees Paul Ellering and Road Warrior Animal will be on hand, as will Amber O'Neal and members of her new Arenachicks promotion.
So, even if you have no personal impetus for coming out such as mine, K&S WrestleFest still promises to be a fun event well worth checking out.
