The talk of Alabama was not on football, it was on Honey Boo Boo. Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson) and her entire family were guest stars at the Global Championship Wrestling’s Fall Brawl at the Pell City Civic Center. You would think the crowd would be huge, and it was! The line wrapped around the back of the civic center and the crowd inside was so huge the wrestling event eventually sold out. Even with the wrestling event sold out people still came out to see the family. GCW promoter Maddog Dan Sawyer provided the best quote of the night from The Daily Home newspaper. He said “Alana and her family are just really good people and they have great hearts. People need to come on out tonight and see that television brings these people to our homes every week, but they are just regular folks like people living in Pell City or Ragland.”
All of the money raised from the autographs and pictures goes straight to an anti-bullying campaign. At least that’s what they claim. And yes I went to the event on Saturday night. The crowd at the Pell City Civic Center was the biggest I have ever seen!
Although I didn’t get any photos of the family in person. I found some great photos from social media and the news websites. ABC 33/40 and CBS 42 both had photos and videos from this event.
And here are some photos I have found from social media. Yes the family was at the Pell City Wal-Mart earlier in the day.
