Mark your calendars. Clear your schedules for late January.
Big things are afoot. An epic event the kind the world has never seen. Or at least I think it hasn't.
How epic? Imagine if the Superfriends had a reunion.
It's that big.
More than 60 stars are scheduled to appear the weekend of Jan 28-29-30, 2005 at the DoubleTree Hotel, 4500 W Cypress St. in Tampa, Florida for the very first WrestleReunion fan convention promoted by Bill Apter and Diamond Dallas Page. The weekend's event will feature multiple signings by many of the scheduled stars, and (for VIP ticketholders) a live wrestling card Saturday evening, plus two Q & A Sessions.
Scheduled to appear throughout the course of the weekend are Bruno Sammartino, Roddy Piper, Kevin Nash, Bobby Heenan, Mick Foley, Terry and Dory Funk, Jr., Wendi Richter, Marty Janetty, Tully Blanchard, Diamond Dallas Page, Kevin Von Erich, Bill Watts, Magnum TA, Ricky Steamboat, Abdullah the Butcher, Harley Race, Ted DiBiase, The Fantastics, Jimmy Garvin, Precious, The Midnight Express (Stan Lane & Bobby Eaton & Dennis Condrey), Jim Cornette, Cowboy Bob Orton Jr., Paul Jones, Masked Superstar (Bill Eadie), Bugsy McGraw, Jimmy Valiant, Malia Hosaka, Col. DeBeers, Kamala, Oliver Humperdink, The Wild Samoans, Buddy Rose, JJ Dillon, Mike Graham, Jack Brisco, Superstar Graham, Rocky Johnson, Mike Rotunda, Barry Windham, George South, and Kevin Sullivan, among others.
VIP ticketholders ($249 until 12/1, at which point the price will rise) will receive entrance into a Friday night Q & A Session with Foley, Terry Funk, Page, and Von Erich. There will also be a Sunday morning Q & A Session with the Midnights, Cornette, Watts, and Sammartino. In addition, there will also be several contests exclusively for VIPs including a trip for two to Wrestlemania 21, a Million Dollar belt replica and more.
Mmmm. I love me some belt replica. Can't wait to see the spectacle of weird when this thing rolls into town. Posted by Jeff at October 19, 2004 05:47 AM | TrackBack

ooooh I would pay the money and go just so I could eye-poke DiBiase and kick Jim Cornette in the hoohas....

I hated that guy.

That man, not Gorgeous (or is it free bird?) Jimmy Garvin, with the blood looks like Senator Ted Kennedy.
