Here’s a statement from the Legends of the Ring Facebook page:
Dear Loyal LOTR Fans,
Hoping this msg finds you well and as healthy as you have always been.
With the Covid-19 pandemic reaching its projected peak in the next few months, we have been working hard behind the scenes to keep everyone healthy and safe. LOTR has made the decision to follow the recommendations of our government for the safety of the Wrestlers and more importantly the Loyal LOTR fans. At this time we have decided to postpone the June show which will be pushed back to Oct 3rd. We will be posting updates as needed. All tickets are valid and will be transferred for Oct show and we are in the process of reconfirming the talent.
Thank you as always for you’re patronage. Stay healthy and safe!

- The Pre-Order page will return shortly!
March 7, 2015, is a milestone moment for yours truly: my first-ever wrestling convention The Big Event VIII. This show was headlined by Rey Mysterio, Jr. and featured major names such as Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, The Dudley Boyz, Magnum T.A., and Samoa Joe (amongst others). It was a wonderful experience and I found myself counting down the days to my next convention.
Fast-forward to March 7, 2020, to The Big Event XVIII. This show was headlined by The Undertaker and featured major names such as Bret Hart, Braun Strowman, and Lita (amongst others). This, too, was a wonderful experience and part of me is amazed that I’m still going strong 5 years later. Thanks to this hobby, I’ve made some great friends and met legendary wrestlers and various celebrities. It’s been a fantastic 5 years and here’s to many, many more!
Now with all that being said…
Let’s get to the report!

Another Big Event 18 attendee has pulled out due to concerns of the Coronavirus outbreak:
Big Event 18 Update: I’ve got some unfortunate news to report. Chuck Palumbo will NOT be in attendance at the Big Event tomorrow. I received this text message this am
“Nick, I’ve been trying to weigh out this trip with the Coronavirus thing.
After speaking with my family, I decided to pass on the trip. Between the 12 hours of flight time, and all of the people we will contact during the convention/signing I don’t want to take the risk.”
I have been trying to work on a reconciliation throughout the entire day involving a flight change and/or additional compensation and neither was able to change the fact that Chuck will not be able to make it tomorrow. All of my other guests INCLUDING Pat Tanaka will be there however.
Customers who purchased Chuck items will be able to use that for credit tomorrow for other guests or be refunded in full on Monday am.
I apologize for the inconvenience and will do my best to get Chuck rescheduled (for the 3rd time!) for another show this year.
Terry Funk has canceled his Big Event 18 appearance due to health reasons. Terry is one of the nicest, friendliest wrestlers that I have ever met and I’m certainly keeping him in my thoughts and prayers. The Funker will be missed at Big Event 18 but here’s hoping we see him come our way soon.
Meanwhile, Nzo (formerly Enzo Amore in WWE and NXT) has been added.
This past Saturday was a return to form for yours truly. I haven’t been as active as I’d like to be in this hobby for a number of reasons (lack of desirable names, funds, and time are all contributors), so I was absolutely thrilled to devote an entire Saturday to get combos. I did not get everyone I wanted but, hey, there’s always next time, right? Right?!? Right. Anyways, let’s get to it:
