1980's WrestlingFlyin' Brian by John Hitchcock.

Well, they didnít call him the Loose Cannon for nothing. On a few occasions I got to talk with Brian Pillman. All of them were memorable. The Night Of The Squeegee, he walked over to me after his match and asked me if I had an extra cardboard squeegee. He wanted it so I gave him one of my extras. Pillman then walked to the dressing room doing the tomahawk chop and laughing his ass off.

Later in Florida, I ran into him in a bar and asked him what he did with that squeegee I gave him in Greensboro? He laughed out loud, grabbed me around the neck and said, And I quote, ìI carry it in my bag. I take it everywhere so if the big pussy Sid ever wants some, Iíll kick his god damn ass with it!î

You got to love a guy with that kind of sense of humor. Flashback to a Winston-Salem WCW Nitro show. Those shows were live and anything could happen.

I wasnít front row as was custom. My seats were about five rows deep, nothing to sneeze at. But it turned out those were the best seats in the house that night. During the show Brian Pillman suddenly ran out into the crowd, right in my section. Hell, the guy was right on top of me. Pillman had been ìfiredî by WCW and he was not supposed to be at the show.

He bolted right in to the crowd and he was carrying a sign. The sign said, ìPILLMAN.COMî or something like that. It was something I knew was staged and decided to have some fun with him. Nothing like giving the guy some needed heat. But man, he had that in bucket loads.

Anyway, I started yelling at him, giving him some shit. ìHey, Pillman! What are you doing here? You are supposed to be in ECW! You are trying to ruin our show?î (Our Show being the funniest thing I could think of.) Pillman then looked right me and cut loose with this gem. ìShut the hell up, fat ass! I will go where ever I want to and nobody is going to stop me!î

For the record, that was the first time anyone ever called me a fat ass. Truth hurts. Pillman then jumped up on my seat and started waving that sign around. There was one problem. He was wearing boots and they were way to slippery to stand on those cheap plastic chairs. He was falling all over the place trying to get up there. So I reached up and grabbed him by his belt to steady him. ìI got ya brother.î ìThanks Brother.î

Pillman then was able to get in camera range and get all the attention he needed. As I was holding him up, Pillman then cut loose with some more curses at me and the ran like hell when Bishoff and the WCW security showed up. ìThanks again brother.î ìNo problem, brother.î

Thatís the wrestling business.

Next Time, Chris Benoit!
