wrestling museums merge
« on: May 28, 2010, 08:06:53 AM »
I can't find a forum where this really fits. The National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum (Stillwater, OK) has purchased the Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum. The DGIWIM will remain in Waterloo, IA.

Bad joke, but did they also buy up the strip club right next to it?

LOL. I just can't get that out of my mind when we rolled in there. Great facility, but they need to lose the club next to it.

When we visited we saw the storm chasers rig in their parking lot.

Whaddya mean? The only way to make it any better would be to add a monster truck jam and I would have no excuse to leave the area.

From the looks of the neighborhood, monster trucks would be the last thing to come there. I remember us driving thru there and seeing little 10 yr olds flipping us gang signs. Like I said, great museum but the location was a bit out of place.
