Breaking down WrestleCon, Part 1: The Finer Details

With Big Event XVI in the rearview mirror, it’s time to turn our attention towards the annual mecca of professional wrestling conventions: WrestleCon.

WrestleCon is a 2-Day wrestling convention that’s held annually during every WrestleMania weekend. Their website advertises over 200+ guests in attendance (!!!), making it by far the biggest pro wrestling convention to hit the East Coast in quite sometime.

A 2-Day wrestling convention with over 200 guests advertised is…a lot. A lot, a lot, A LOT and, if you’re like me, it can be a bit overwhelming for a first timer.

First and foremost, I advise all of you to follow their invaluable Twitter account. They’re fairly receptive to answering fan questions and will clarify a few grey areas. I realize that some of you may not be on social media (a good thing!) and, even if you are, it’s easy to miss out on a tweet that contains key info.

In Part 1 of the series, I’m aiming to provide a breakdown of WrestleCon: where is it, when is it, admission, and highlight important steps to take before the madness begins. Oh, and I’ll be sure to cover exclusive meet & greet opportunities. Let’s get to it.
