Dot Net Member Ian Calderwood attended the AWF event in Ringgold, Ga. on Thursday and sent the following report on the meet and greet with WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.

As someone who exclusively goes to WWE shows only, going to such a small indy show was a culture shock. There were an estimated 300 fans there, filling the Colonnade center at about half capacity. The chance to get to meet Ric was a once in a lifetime experience for me and since the show was only fifteen minutes from where I live, I paid the twenty dollars for admission and another twenty for a picture with Ric (and my best friend). He was also charging an additional ten dollars for an autograph as well.

Out of all the 300 people there, I would say roughly 200 of them were in line for the Ric Flair meet and greet. He was beyond gracious to myself and seemingly everyone else there. He made two separate appearances in the show itself, first in a promo with the AWF champion Paul Lee, then he accompanied Lee's opponent for the night Johnny Rokk, which ended in a swerve finish where Flair and Lee joined forces.

Although Ric seemed grateful for the support shown, it was obvious his head wasn't in the game, for obvious reasons, which is understandable. Also at the show wrestling were the Rock and Roll Express, Raven, and DOC (Luke Gallows). All of them were signing prior to the show. For what it was, it was a great time and meeting Ric Flair in person is something I will never forget.

Included is my picture with Ric Flair (with my best friend on the end).
