WWE Wrestling Underground (I found Virgil in the Subway)

Postby jwill55nets » February 22nd, 2013, 3:57 pm

Normally I wouldn’t write a report about just seeing a “famous” person and not even trying to get an auto, photo, or even interact. But in this case I had no choice, since I consider ignoring him a success.

Yesterday I was on my way home from work. I was navigating the subway station just as I usually do, however something was different. Instead of the usual guys selling toys or making balloon dogs, there was The Man, The Myth, The Legend...:virgil:. He had his usual stack of photos and 2 name placards. I was in such shock I doubled back, just so I could get this video for you guys. I know the video isnt the best and there is no audio, however I knew if I didn’t get a video or photo I would be told that there’s no proof so it didn’t happen.

At this point usually I would feel bad for somebody that they have resorted to vending in subway stations of New York, and by vending I mean begging, however when I made the pass the first time I saw him talking to somebody holding their wallet and then the person began laughing and walked away. My guess is even in the subway system he still wanted $20 for a photo op.

Feel free to share your thoughts (he appears in the last 10 seconds of the video):

Guess he doesn't have such a good job if he's doing this on a school day

I left town Friday so I didnt take my usual route home. But rumor is he was outside of Madame Tussauds this weekend. At this point if he hadnt done this to himself, but asking high prices i'd feel bad for him.

My video got over 35k views, which is crazy since I really only took it to prove to Lanza, Dana, and Lucas that this happened.

Also - Check out this article which I am quoted in. http://www.wrestlenewz.com/wrestling/ex ... o-himself/ I'm like a celebrity now. I will be selling autos and photo ops at the next Legends event. Ted DiBaise will be appearing with me.

its sad but it just proves that wrestlers blow their money and then struggle.I also think his downfall is being EVERYWHERE and charging too much money.
