The Issue I Have Been Waiting Years For

I have been waiting for this day for quite a while.

As a subscriber to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, we are treated each week to a back issue from the past.

They started doing these back issues over a year ago and we're finally on to the October 1993 which is around the time when I went to my first American wrestling show.

The issue in question details the scissor fight that happened between Sid Vicious and Arn Anderson on the very same night that WCW were in Cardiff.

They had travelled from the Cardiff International Arena, arrived in Blackburn, got into an argument in the hotel bar and ended up in a hotel corridor brawl involving scissors and a table leg.

It was all over the newspapers and radio and I still have a press clipping from that time (albeit with my sister's artist pen colouring on some of the headlines!).

I have already read the coverage of the Vince McMahon trial (summer 1994) but I am looking forward to being able to read it again. I guess I'll have a little over a year to wait until that one is uploaded to the site.
