Mark your calendars on July 10, 2009  for one of the most exciting events to come to the Philippines – WWE Smackdown and ECW Live in Manila! The show kicks off at 7PM at the Araneta Coliseum, and superstar wrestlers like Chris Jericho, Edge, Ray Mysterio, Kane, Jeff Hardy and CM Punk among the many other wrestling superstars of the WWE and ECW.

On a personal note, I enjoy wrestling since back in the days of the 1980’s WWF. I cheered on my favorite Hulk Hogan and was part of the Hulkamaniacs running wild as he kicked ass on the likes of The Iron Sheik, Mr. Wonderful Paul Ondorff and even the classic dramatic battle against his former tag team partner Andre The Giant!I even remember the memorable match of Hulk Hogan vs The Ultimate Warrior. Apart from The Hulkster, I was also an avid fan of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, The Polish Power Ivan Putsky, Sgt. Slaughter and Rowdy Roddy Piper.

Once upon a time, circa Age 11, I even got to watch the WWF wrestlers live in Buffalo, New York. I remember standing on top of my chair, and still felt dwarfed by Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant and Big John Studd. Damn those guys were huge!

Anyway, I’m not quite an avid follower of wrestling now as when I was much younger, but then my son Kaj is vry much into it, and I’m going to give him the great opportunity to catch the stars of the WWE when WWE Smackdown comes over to Manila. It’ll certainly be an awesome event in terms of entertainment, and sentimentally it’d be great for some father-and-son bonding.
