Can I get my picture with you?

One of the best parts of Portland Wrestling, was the access to the wrestlers themselves.  These guys were my heroes, but I ran into them at the gym, grocery store, the mall, and walking their dogs.  (That's how I found out where Steve Doll lived.  He was out in front of his apartments on Harmony Road in Milwaukie, walking his dog Mandy.  Brian Adams lived there too.)

Portland Wrestling always offered autograph sessions at the arena, and the guys were always doing charity events that included autograph sessions. But that didn't stop us from waiting outside the Sports Arena after a match or sneaking back inside after security chased all of the fans away, so we could get our photos taken.

Here is a small selection of photos I took with some of the greats....
