    Whether or not he returns to being a heavyweight champion Thursday night, Chester's Chad Wilson has already won a major battle by just returning to the ring.

He didn't just want to watch wrestling on TV, though, he wanted to be in the ring himself. How serious he was about wrestling was demonstrated by who he looked up to. He wasn't attracted to the biggest names or flashiest performers.

A theatrical production of some sort was one of the leading answers, she said.
