Nor did he when I saw him at some random media day in Moundsville, WV. I want to say this was in 2017. It wasn't even a Whatever-Con, just some random event that mostly consisted of people selling stuff and local companies pimping their services. I would assume that there was some sort of wrestling event happening nearby, so he just decided to grab a table for this too. He seemed nice, but he was mainly trying to get me to buy an autographed picture of him for the kids...they had no idea who he is.

EDIT: To give you an idea, I didn't end up leaving with a Virgil autograph, but I did buy some apple butter, a few candles and some mix to make ranch dip.

Also many stories out there of him trying to hustle autographs like he did with you.

That's a shame, almost makes me wish I bought one. I honestly wouldn't call it, "Hustling," except it was an extremely strong sell.

When I was a kid, Mickey Rooney was everywhere on tv



At one time in the 40's, Mickey was
the biggest box office movie star
in H-wood. He was even married
to Ava Gardner for awhile. She was
the first of 8 wives. He never got
over his fall from stardom into
obscurity, and was still bitter about
it well into his 90's.

Vince McMahon screwed over a lot of wrestlers with the way he runs that company. Doesn't give a damn about their health or retirement.

Was this before or after the murders?

Was she nice? I wouldn't do well at the tables with Cindy Crawford sitting next to me. Probably be too distracted.

O.J. was so drunk that he kept falling asleep between hands. The Pitboss finally asked him to leave.

O.J. was before the murders. I would guess around 1992.

I didn't even recognize Cindy Crawford until the next night when she was on Johnny Carson (or maybe Jay Leno). She mentioned she just came from working in Las Vegas and just married Richard Gere the past weekend.

Totally disagree. They have put many former wrestlers through rehab, including some multiple times. Most anyone who worked for them is eligible IF they admit they need help.

Most of the stories the public reads about were former or current junkies who blew all the money they made. Money amounts most can only dream off. You canít make people save for later in life or have the common sense to realize the money wonít keep coming in.

But some liberal F@@@ goes on HBO and says Vince is screwing wrestlers over and it becomes a story.
