Of course I was actually in danger. I could see their minds working. I was walking that super-thin line between showing enough bravado to make them back down, and showing too much false bravado and provoking a vicious attack. If I had been just a little more drunk, or a little less sober, or made a wrong move, then I'd have had the shit kicked out of me.

Did I mention those guys were BIG?

I kept saying to myself, "I wrestle cattle for a fucking living. The steers weigh 1000 pounds. These guys only weigh 225-250 and they probably don't wrestle every day. The vicoden is in the safe in the hotel and there's a hospital near by. Chicks dig guys with scars..."
