Meeting WWE Wrestlers with a couple of pics

Just found this site and have a story i wanted to share about meeting wwe wrestlers (smackdown brand at the time i think) in 2007 (or possibly early 2008). so anyways a friend of mine was the bar supervisor at the chino latinos in nottingham, england. so he gives me a call (knowing im a wrestling fan) and tells me the wwe (who were doing a show at nottingham arena that night) were staying at the hotel and had asked for the bar to be open late that night so they could have a party after the show and he could get me in. so i goes down and sure enough they'e all there having a drink. anyways as my friend was there i was drinking for free that night and started chatting with some of the wrestlers. trips was there but i didnt get to speak to him, he was sitting at a table having a serious conversation with a couple of guys who looked like officials. i asked taker for a photo but he was like ''not in a bar dude ive gotta stay in character'' but later he was in the corridor he let me take one which was cool. chris masters was really cool and let me take a photo. his arm was in a sling and he had a black eye cus he'd just hurt himself in abotched spot that night. finley was cool and we chatted about when he was wrestlng in itv british wrestling that i remember watching when i was a kid. shook khali's hand which is the biggest ive ever seen in my life, like shovels. started chatting to rey whos a really chilled dude and asked him for a photo, so takes the photo and a big dude comes up and tries to grab my phone of me (you can see his finger at the bottom of the photo) saying i cant take a picture of him without his mask and i gotta delete it (wasn't sure who he was at the time but looked like it was lance cade even though i think he was on raw) i said cmon everyone knows what he looks like without the mask from wcw and rey was like its cool i let him take the photo. chatted with horny, victoria, mvp and a few others but cant really remember the convo's cus i was hammered by then. funniest story is i was sitting a the bar pretty wasted chatting with a hot blonde who worked there and had just finished (the one in the photo with masters, she had a boyfriend and wasn't interested) and along comes matt hardy (also wasted. suprised?) anyway i saw he was checking out this blonde so i says hey matt she's a friend of mine and she thinks you're hot you should try your luck. he wouldnt leave her alone all night and she got p****d off and told him to f**k off, pretty funny. anyway it was a great night, (didnt get home till 4am) and all the talent seemed pretty cool and didnt mind chatting to people. if wwe are ever in nottingham and you wanna meet the wrestlers go to chinos after the show cus they always stay in that hotel and drink in that bar after. they're really approachable and friendly and i had a right good laugh. (sorry about the quality of the photos it was on my old crappy sony ericsson with a 2.0mp camera but hey it was 2007)
