For the Men & Women involved in the Business & Sport of Professional Wrestling!!!
The 2014 Red Bastien TX Shoot Out has come and gone....
We can now announce the Final count, and this is still not accurate because we still have a few guys (we won't call anyone out, Mr. Simpson!) that still continue to go around the registration process, which only helps us with contact information and to get a count of how many attend each year, but that's just the way some are! So the count for attendance of the 2014 Shoot Out is 238 throughout the 4 hour afternoon, all men and women involved in the Business of Professional Wrestling, either in the Ring wrestling, referees, valets, 2nds, security detail, promoters and many great Legends all had a great afternoon.
There were tables like the one above littered all over the room, where veterans sat with athletes of today sitting around sharing stories from the Ring & the Road!!
We won't give out all our secrets but a few of those in attendance were Stan Hansen, Chavo Sr. & Mando Guerrero, Tom Renesto Jr & John Renesto, Iceman King Parsons, Doyle King, James Beard, Tim Storm, Kevin Douglas, Steve Simpson, Gary Young, Terry Simms, Brain Adias, Tugboat Taylor & Chaz and Many, Many, Many more! We are so excited to be able to say we keep growing each year.
And Happy for our Fans to say that we have a few Commemorative T-Shirts & Hats available to purchase. These are one of kind, printed only once with all proceeds sent to the PWHF in the name of Red Bastien & the TX Shoot Out.
We will have a list of shirt sizes left soon, plus we have tan and white hats (but just a couple of each left).
We can take PayPal orders soon for payment for the shirts and hats. Just message us or fill out the Order form and we will contact you about payment forms. 100% of proceeds from the sale of the shirts & hats will be taken to the PWHF in May.
Thank you to all who attended and had a great afternoon, to Jeremy and the staff at Amigo's for putting up with our rowdy bunch, to Claudia & Kimmie for helping with the registration & all other running around and to Amy Caldwell for taking photos all day (& for putting up with the "group"!) Visit the Photo Gallery for more photos.
Can't wait to see you all again next year, Saturday, Feb. 7th, 2015!!
(Thanks to Amy we will be posting a photo gallery from the day soon.)
The OFFICIAL T-Shirt of he 2014 Red Bastien's TX Shoot Out! This year we are commemorating all of the greats being inducted into the PWHF, but especially two of the North Texas area's greats, Gary Hart and Bruiser Brody along with our Patriarch, RED!!!
There are only a few printed each year, along with only a dozen hats. These commemorative shirts and hats are available at the Shoot Out for the "boys" BUT if there are any left over they will be made available to the public here on the website. (Pictured above the Front, below the Back with complete list of Inductees)
Again, these are one of a kind printing, commemorating this great time in our lives!
Shirts will be $20 each (if available) and hats will be $20 each plus $4.95 s/h each. Don't miss out on these one of a kind items from this event!
The TX Shoot Out was started by Flyin' Red Bastien, with help from Larry Dwyer, in 2003 (originally much earlier but those were lunches with a few friends) as a reunion luncheon for wrestlers in & around the Dallas/Ft. Worth area (or those that wrestled here throughout the years). With Red's health in decline & Larry becoming so busy that the torch or organizing the event has been passed to Cowboy Johnny Mantell & "K" (Tygress Lourdes) Downs. They hope to make this annual event a afternoon where guys & gals from all over can return to the Dallas / Ft. Worth area and revisit so many wonderful memories & people from their past.
This is John, Cowboy Johnny Mantell, with Red Bastien at the 2008 TX Shoot Out held in Dallas, TX.
Fun is had by ALL!
