What were the best things about Starrcast 2018? Everyone has their own list, but here’s mine in no particular order (save the last one).
Hanging out with Randy Pease – an old friend who is the reason I started writing about wrestling in the first place.
Watching Macauley Culkin thumb wrestle Scott Steiner.
Meeting Dr. D’s fans.
Meeting Mark James.
The Katie Vick photo op at the Wrestlecrap booth.
Hanging out with the Wrestlecrap crew.
Meeting Bill Apter.
Watching Road Warrior Animal push Lex Lugar around in his wheelchair.
Seeing Erik Hodson’s amazing wrestling art work everywhere.
Meeting Jerry Lynn.
Seeing my friend and fellow author Brennon Martin again.
Visiting with some amazing podcasters, both those broadcasting and those just attending.
Joey Ryan shaking Dr. D’s hand.
Shooting a video with Hurricane Helms.
And the absolute #1 best part of all – the amazing staff of volunteers who made the event possible. I’ve been to many comic cons and fan fests the last 10 years, and by far, Starrcast had the hardest working, most helpful, most responsive volunteer crew I’ve ever seen. Yes, there was congestion and chaos, but these amazing workers kept the gears moving, and everyone had a good time. They are the #1 reason I would recommend this event to any fan or vendor or wrestler considering where to invest their time and money in 2019.
Because you know, where there’s an ALL IN 2, there will be a Starrcast 2!
