Here are all the results (courtesy of TheHistoryOfWWE.com) from that great night back when I was 14 years old, a freshman in high school (thanks for correcting me on this Ted!). Thanks Dad for taking Barry and me!

Hey all. I went to Lowell Memorial Auditorium (north of Boston) for both Manias 2 and 3. Found all my old ticket stubs a couple weeks ago and figured it’d be cool to post. You can see how they used to just rip the ticket without a care in the world for collectors.
