1) Yes
2) Yes
3) Don't know but noticed same thing.
4) Did not see him.
5) Saw the cake but did not get a combo.

- Rock N Roll Express might be two of the nicest guys you will ever meet.
- Tommy "Wildfire" Rich was almost thrilled I wanted to get a photo with him.
- Double J was doing brisk business
- Jillian Hall asked me like 3 times in a 1 minute span why I wanted her and Paul Ellerling in the same photo (bc they were next to each other?)

Rock N Roll are definitely two of THE nicest guys. I talked to Ricky on the phone a few years ago and if not for the mentioning all of his booking dates he just conversed like an old pal.
I met them at an indy show a few years ago. Ricky told a story about being with a few other NWA guys in the 80s when someone approached them for an autograph and everyone but Ricky turned him down at the restaurant. It turned out it was Orioles' Eddie Murray who came back in the place and gave Ricky a signed baseball. Ricky told me of the importance of being nice to everyone and being appreciative that people want your autograph.

Ricky is more of a showman with a greater personality while Robert is more quiet and reserved. At the show, I saw Robert approach one of the younger indy wrestlers and start a conversation with him. He asked him about moves he knew or didn't know and Robert showed the young man the proper way to do the moves. It's just something that stuck with me ever since, with what type of guys they are to everyone on the card.

Thank you for moving my report. I was just answering questions and thought I'd skip my pics in.

Well we delete the convention threads, so your pics would have gone bye bye.
