My favorite Matt Borne memory...

His entrance as Big Josh at Superbrawl I, walking to the ring with bears, and the bears pissed all over the entrance ramp all the way to the ring.

I wonder who signed those 2012 Topps Heritage Doink autos?

Good question. I would think it should have been Matt, but who knows. That could end up being a very valuable auto if so as I believe it was Doink's only certified auto. There are a bunch of Doink 8x10's out there, but you never really know which Doink signed those.

Great wrestler and I'll always love original Doink. Anyone who hasn't seen it, check out his match with Mr. Perfect from RAW on 5/24/93. It's more than worth your time.

Think Topps will ever say? I doubt it.

What person is in photo on the card?

Matt Borne has two cards in the 1992 WCW Topps UK set. He was working under the name of Big Josh.

I am going to send in a full set of these soon and these two will be heading to PSA to get graded.
