Postandcourier.com presents “Painter puts World Wrestling Champions on Canvas” by Mike Mooneyham

Mike MCourtesy of Postandcourier.com writer Mike Mooneyham:

Rob Schamberger didn’t know much about pro wrestling when he caught his first televised mat show nearly 16 years ago.

He was 18 years old, doing laundry at his parents’ house, and his stepfather was flipping through channels.

When he stumbled upon a station where “Nature Boy” Ric Flair was cutting a promo, Schamberger immediately ceased what he was doing.

“My stepfather had been a fan back in the ’60s and ’70s here in Kansas City. He would go to Memorial Hall every Thursday night and watch guys like Bob Geigel, Bulldog Bob Brown, Harley Race and Sonny Myers,” Schamberger explains.

The most important action of Tuesday’s WrestleMania 30 news conference at Hard Rock Café in Times Square didn’t take place on the podium.

To the stage’s left, behind the press chairs, Josh Mathews spoke to the Bella Twins live on the WWE Network before the event began. Scribes turned their backs to the stage and took pictures of that broadcast, part of the biggest gamble Vince McMahon has taken since mortgaging everything he had to put WrestleMania I at Madison Square Garden on closed-circuit TV.

Justin Credible discusses his favorite WWE WrestleMania moments

justin_credibleFormer ECW Champion and WWE Superstar Justin Credible has published a new column at PWMania.com. Credible discusses his favorite WWE WrestleMania moments.

Here are some highlights from his article:

“WrestleMania 17. This was my favorite WrestleMania for many reasons. The main event was a dream match. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin vs. The Rock. These guys were the two biggest wrestlers of the “Attitude Era”. The build for this match was also masterful. Then on the other side of the spectrum It was my first appearance at WrestleMania. I had been to WrestleMania’s before during my Aldo days, but never performed. The show was held at Reliant Stadium in front of 67,000 fans. Even though it was on the pre show I got to go out, and wrestle on the WrestleMania stage. When the X Factor music hit I went through the curtain, and I couldn’t believe the sea of people. As I’m walking down the huge ramp to the ring I couldn’t help but think I made my dreams come true. The match was ok. I never got that big Mania moment, but for that moment I made it full circle. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. The rest of the card speaks for itself, but WrestleMania 17 was Justin Credible.”
