Can’t make Legends of the Ring this Saturday? Wrestling Universe to host a mini-convention of their own on Sunday – and they have one BIG exclusive guest

Legends of the Ring will host their 28th show from the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Monroe, NJ, this Saturday and, as usual, they’ve booked a very strong lineup of guests.

If you can’t make Legends of the Ring, though, there’s another opportunity to meet and greet several guests booked for the New Jersey convention on Sunday, June 2, at the Wrestling Universe from 3:00 – 5:00 PM. The following guests are scheduled to appear:

  • Billy Jack Haynes ($30 combo)
  • Disco Inferno ($30 combo)
  • Jimmy Hart ($30 combo)
  • KENTA ($30 combo)
  • Godfather ($40 combo)
  • Scott Hall ($50 combo)

They’re also hosting an exclusive meet and greet with Japanese legend the Great Sasuke!

Meet Japanese Legend The Great Sasuke Sun June 2nd from 3:30-5:30PM COMBO TICKET (TICKETS NOT MAILED)

The Great Sasuke will NOT be appearing at LOTR, so you’ll only have one chance to meet an extremely rare name!

You can pre-order tickets to meet these guests by visiting their official website.

A look back at the hobby in 1991

Nearly a decade ago, a Marked Out forum user made an interesting post. He comprised a list of wrestlers who had rarely (if ever) pariticipated in a wrestling convention/autograph signing. He dubbed this “the Savage Realm” as Randy Savage was essentially MIA before his untimely death.

As I was looking through the post, it made me regret not taking up this hobby sooner because I missed out on some pretty great names.

With that post in mind, I eventually made my way to F4W and Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter archive. They have a search engine within the archive and decided to do a very general for search “autograph.” The results went as back as far back as January of 1991 and, to my pleasure, I found a couple of hobby-related stories that made their way to the WON.

I’m going to summarize those stories from 1991 and might continue going back through the years to see how the hobby was evolved. If you haven’t already, I HIGHLY suggest that you subscribe to F4W because Meltzer’s Newsletter archive is a goldmine.

With that being said, I hope you enjoy!
