JR Blog's - 6/19/2010 - Tyson/Austin Memories

Source: JR's blog

An e-mailer asked if I remembered the Austin-Tyson confrontation on Raw. Without question. It was at the old, small arena in Fresno on a hotter than hell day. Tyson came with a much larger entourage than humanly needed. Lots of hanger's on.' WWE had to get Mike a trailer to park outside the arena to use as his dressing room. We stayed at a hotel right across the street from the arena there in Fresno. The crowd was jacked when Austin and Tyson made contact with some of the most intense emotion that I can ever remember on Raw. The moment, the timing, the individuals involved, the entire package created a memory that all fans would enjoy seeing either again or for the first time. I also realized that day just how big a wrestling fan Mike Tyson is and, as I have mentioned, he is a great historian of the WWF era of wrestling in the northeast.
