My WWF WrestleMania IV Pictures From 1988
I’m sitting at home getting ready to watch my first live WrestleMania since I was 14 years old. I was a huge wrestling fan as a kid. I had 7th row tickets for WrestleMania 4 in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino. It got me all nostalgic. My mom passed away a couple years ago. She raised me solo. Now as an adult, it blows my mind trying to figure out how financially she was able to make ends meet. These tickets cost over $100, which back then was crazy money. Not to mention the airfare, hotel and other expenses.
If that wasn’t enough, when we got to Atlantic City, we rented a car and drove all around the backwoods of New Jersey trying to find a pro wrestling school I read about in Sports Illustrated. This was long before GPS. We never found it. So her 14 year old son’s dream of being the next Roddy Piper would have to wait.
Not bad for a Kodak Disc camera huh? Remember those?
