|"Classy" Freddie Blassie & The Grand Wizard

Each year, Chad and I come up with what we think is a fun costume theme for Wrestlemania. The very first year, we went as the Spirit Squad (they were around at the time) and people actually thought we were members of the cheerleading team as we walked around the parking lot of the All State Arena and the neighboring Target store. I'd like to think I was mistaken for Nicky who is now known as Dolph Ziggler. I kid, I kid.

Chad and I both worried that fans would not remember The Grand Wizard, but we were surprised at how any people at Axxess and Wrestlemania got it. Even before we left the hotel, fans identified both of us. I'll admit, the white hair spray I used didn't cover my hair like I'd hoped, but I think people still understood who I was trying to be.
Thanks to everyone who "got" us this year and posed for photographs. We ran into several great costumed fans this year, including the Ultimate Warrior, Doink the Clown, and Paul Bearer.
