- In what may be the most
ambitious undertaking in the broadcast history of wrestling on the
Internet, Ringside Live will be broadcasting from Friday's
Cauliflower Alley Cocktail Party. We expect the broadcast to go
several hours and we will attempt to talk to as many of the stars
as possible. Special props go to Up Close Wrestling's Jeremy
Hartley, who will help produce and host. We couldn't even
think about doing this without Jeremy's help.
- The Saturday night banquet
will see the end of Lou Thesz' reign as Cauliflower Alley
Club. Thesz is retiring as president and his successor will be
announced that night. The candidates include Leo Garibaldi,
Red Bastien and Nick Bockwinkel. There is no truth
to the rumor that a ring will be set up in the middle of the
banquet room and the three men will settle the issue between the
ropes. Wrestlers being honored include Gene "Mr.
America" Stanlee, The Big K Stan Kowalski, Stan
Pulaski, Fritz Von Goering, The Crusher (Reggie Lisowski),
Beverly Shade, Ethel Brown, Natasha, Titi Paris, the Dusek Riot
Squad, Billy Anderson and Joe Marshall.

Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. We are producing a
special tape in celebration of the banquet that will feature
nearly two dozen stars that will be at the Banquet and Reunion
