Joseph Bruen: Tell us what it was like growing up as a kid with 2 sisters and your first memories of becoming a wrestling fan.
Vivian Rosati: I actually was about 21 years old when I was bit by the wrestling bug. It all started with a Sports Illustrated magazine that had Hulk Hogan on the cover. I read all 22 pages and was curious to see what all the fuss was about. After watching a morning show on WOR Channel 9 in New York. After that, I was hooked. My late sister Christine was a fan on and off when she was younger and Diane was not into it at all. I was the one who had them get into it more to the point where it was almost a religion with us. We had to catch all shows when they aired.
Joseph Bruen: Who were some of your favorite wrestlers growing up as a child and why?
Vivian Rosati: My all time favorite was and is Hulk Hogan, but I liked Bret Hart,Tito Santana, Junk Yard Dog, George Steele, The Killer Bees, The Rockers. Everyone had something that appealed to me personally. The Rockers were young and good looking guys, the Bees had great teamwork, JYD was humorous as was Steele, Santana was proud and a great in ring technician as was Hart and Hogan was the all American hero. He made being a proud American cool.
Joseph Bruen: You can be seen on film attending dozens among dozens of WWF shows back in the 80s and 90s. How did that come about where you became a regular as far as attending shows goes?
Vivian Rosati: By chance, we ladies became friends with Vince McMahon. He took a liking to us with our honest reactions to the matches as well as our catchy signs we would hold up. After knowing us for a year, he granted us lifetime tickets to any show anywhere. We used to be able to get free tickets to the pay per views, but that has changed since that is where the talent makes their money more by getting a percentage of the gate. That's okay with us. There's plenty of house shows we can go to that more than makes up for that.
Joseph Bruen:What are your memories of Madison Square Garden? MSG is as special as it gets when it comes to pro wrestling, why is that and what are your personal experiences there that stand out?
Vivian Rosati: For a while there, MSG was like a second home for us. It has always been called The Mecca of Professional Wrestling and with good reason. Many epic matches have taken place there for many years. We have witnessed many great battles during the mid to late eighties. Too many to mention here. Sometimes, the boys would look for us in the crowd and purposely do stuff outside the ring in front of where we were sitting.
