I met Paul Wight right after he signed with WW(F). He was signing his headshot at the Sunrise Mall in Massapequa on Long Island. He was such a nice guy.
Speaking of nice guys, I met Mick Foley on many occasions. I first met him when he was signing his book, "Have a Nice Day" in NYC. He would also hang out at the sports/video game-themed restaurant I worked at (think Dave and Buster's) called Jillian's. He'd order chicken wings and watch football. I also saw him do stand up, and talked to him afterwards. I love Mick.
I've seen Austin in NYC. Back when he was promoting Expendables. He's a really cool dude. Very engaging and friendly. Just don't be too familiar with him, and he's really mellow.
I met DDP, Kevin Nash, Vader, Booker T, and Jerry Lawler on separate occasions at conventions. All of them are really cool. Maybe Nash was a bit of a jerk, but I didn't mind.
I actually stayed at the same hotel as some. I was on a school trip to NYC in 03 during the Evolution run, and we heard that Ric Flair was in the lobby so a lot of us went down (we were all 13-14 years old so a lot of the boys were wrestling fans).
Didn't get to meet them, but Flair & Batista kinda waived and acknowledged everybody as they were leaving for the airport (Newark, the hotel was the Marriott).
Other than that, I have some friends of the family who run a small company, New Era Wrestling, in Shelbyville, Indiana. Damian Cole is a really cool guy, he runs the place and wrestles. Really solid local wrestling company. Check'em out on Youtube.
