I made my referee debut last night for Edmonton's Old School Championship Wrestling.
I refereed the dark match (or as I prefer to call it, the "Reverse Main Event") between Red Money and Scott Steel, a match between Memphis Raines and the Arabian Executioner (which due to the promoter's handwriting looked like "The Ambien Executioner"--a great gimmick just waiting to be used, I think), and Big Daddy Kash vs. The Cremator.
Memphis Raines provided the best description of the referee's psychology I've heard--"The pro wrestling referee is the Last Man in the World who still believes wrestling is real."
It was a dream come true. In fact, the promoter had to pull me aside after the first match to tell me "don't smile so much."
ME: I can't help it. I'm having fun.
Next OSCW show is Saturday, May 29.
Let the Cremator beware. There's a new Sheriff in town.
