The fact that we try our best to secure our regular spots in the front row show after show is because we love the sense of community that comes with being a regular fan in Reseda. There's an unwitten code that we all follow where we KNOW our seats..we KNOW our friends seats...and we love looking around and seeing our buddies perched in their spots. It's something that very few people probably really "get". But PWG is something special to all of us. The Legion Hall probably houses the biggest sense of (here's that word again) "community" amongst Pro Wrestling fans since the heyday of ECW at The Arena. And we just love the fact that MAYBE POSSIBLY we do our small part in adding to the atmosphere and the awesomeness of what makes Pro Wrestling Guerrilla such a worldwide success! I just know that I show up in Reseda from San Diego for every show and see the same faces waiting in line, ready to talk Wrestling or whatever and they are truly the greatest people I have a pleasure to know! There have been a few times over the past four or five shows where I wasn't initially able to secure front row seats. And the beautiful thing about my PWG family is, I've always had somebody picking me up and saying "I got ya covered". And that is truly the beauty of what this wrestling promotion means...it's about friendship and sharing the best Pro Wrestling experience possible with amazing people! Yes, I'm pretty drunk as I post this (basically like every show I attend)...but my love for Pro Wrestling Guerriila and all the friends I've made there is second to none! CANNOT WAIT for the next show to arrive!
SlayJ, you may be drunk, but you perfectly described how I feel aswell... and I'm silver (unfortunately). Its a bond that we all have. Its a bond when we wait outside for 5 hours in line. Its a bond that we all know our respective seats. Its even a bond when something huge happens and we all look at each other, smile at each other, and know that we are enjoying it as the "family" that we are.
I'm pretty sure 2nd row may be great aswell, but I know it won't be the same. Hell, if I saw SlayJ on the 2nd row, I know he won't be 100% happy. Hell, if I saw that SlayJ was seating on the front row, but not on his respective seat, I know that the show won't be the same for him. I know that, because I would feel the same way.
