Making Dreams Come True

Happy Spot Club event 2013
(so if you haven't seen the post just below this one it was what led up to this part!!)

There was a live band that performed first on the front stage and then center ring to introduce the days' big events - wrestling!!!!!!
3 matches were on the schedule
Here they come making their way to the ring for Match #1
The crowd has grown considerably and some are hoping to get a high five or fist bump
Match #2
One team of 3
and 2 on the opposing team are in the ring...
then they call for BIG BAD JOHN!
Lots of excitement as he made his way to the ring on his Golden Stallion
 It was on!
Things went back and forth...
until the 'Tiger' called out Big Bad John.
they tossed each other a time or two
til BBJ took control...
after slinging Tiger to the mat
BBJ ascended the ropes
and started his countdown
when he got to "1"...
Tiger threw his arms up
and shouted
"Give up!!!!"
Arms raised in VICTORY!!!!
 Big Bad John & team mates, キッド臥竜 & Black みき

The Main Event!!!!
These two young men had dreamed all their lives of being in the wrestling ring.
Both of them have cerebral palsy.
One can walk on his own, the other is in a wheel chair.
When the Shinshu Pro Wrestlers heard of their dream they initially said 'no way, it's too dangerous'. But the boys persisted until they said, 'if we can make your dreams come true we'll do all we can to make it happen!'.
They spent six months volunteering their time to prepare the boys for this day!
The opposing team came from Tokyo and are members of a pro wrestlers group there. And they are deaf.
The head of the Shinshu Pro Wrestlers, the Great Mucha, teamed with the two boys vs.
the Tokyo wrestlers.
You could literally FEEL the excitement and anticipation !!
The whole crowd was in this dream-come-true experience.

It was a most emotional and inspiring thing to witness.
Their victory wowed the crowd - which had ballooned to 1500!!!!
Tears of joy flowed as they thanked the supporters for making their dreams become reality.


This was their moment!!!

And we are so blessed and thankful that we could be a part of it!!!!
God is so great!
