When we were gatting ready to celebrate our first anniversary we were trying to think of who we could bring on that would create that buzz, that indication that these guys are legit. As we talked about the various guests we had already had, none of them seemed to gives us that feeling that this is the one. Eventually one name seemed to keep coming up in discussion, the biggest name we could think of. We needed Animal!

The idea was easy enough, now the question was how do we execute it? Thankfully Steve knew Joe from their days in the Chicago based promotion Workd Wrestling Zone. It also helped that they were friends on Facebook too. So Steve sent Joe a message and asked if he would be willing to do a favor for an old friend. Within twenty minutes he got a yes from the tag team legend and the annual event known as Anniversary was born.

It's fitting that we play this tribute on the day Clash Of Champions occurs as The Road Warriors were involved in the very first Clash, which was programmed as a free TV event to rival the then WWF and WrestleMania. Joe was involved in seven of the twenty five Clash events.

Joe, we thank you for your time and most importantly your friendship. You will be missed.
