I missed out on Glacier at the previous Big Event because of the infamous Wedding but the stars aligned this time around. Jenna’s mom was hosting a family get together on Saturday and, luckily for me, she lives about 10 minutes away from the Dutchess Marketplace — where Glacier was appearing!
The signing was from 11-1 and I got there just before 12. If you’ve never been to this place, it’s a gigantic in-door flea market that sells everything you could imagine. Unfortunately, most of it is old crap that’s outlived its usefulness; however, you’ll occasionally find some diamonds in the rough.
Anyways, I walked to the Collector’s Realm section and there was Glaicer in full gimmick and only a one person waiting in line. The combo was $15 and, I have to say, Glacier was probably one of the nicest wrestlers I’ve ever met. He showed me a photo on his phone of Goldberg getting him up in an airplane spin and the last convention they did together.
He took two photo ops with me: one without the mask and one with it. Awesome.
I overheard Glacier telling the fan in front of me that he’s not a fan of the current product, he hates that wrestling is a monopoly, he wasn’t a fan of the Attitude era and is happy wrestling is passed it, and thinks WWE needs some competition.
I don’t know about you guys but the first few months of 2018 are jam-packed with autograph signings – and it starts today!
I’m heading over to the Dutchess Marketplace to meet former WCW wrestler: Glacier.
I missed out on Glacier at the last Big Event and I’m looking forward to finally get him. He’ll be appearing at the Collector’s Realm booth from 11-1.
Next week, the Headhunters – known for their time in FMW and ECW – will be appearing at the Wrestling Universe.
K&S Wrestlefest has announced two exciting additions to its Big Event XIV lineup: Terry Funk and Outback Jack.
Obviously, the most exciting possibility is a dual photo op with Funk and fellow K&S guest Mick Foley. It’s hard to imagine that that won’t be offered.
Outback Jack was originally scheduled for a previous Big Event but, I believed, had to cancel. It’s going to see him booked for this one.
The Big Event has added two more guests to their lineup. Let’s talk a gander at who joins the growing lineup:
Captain’s Corner has added Doug Gilbert to its Big Event XIV lineup. Gilbert was originally scheduled for the last Legends of the Ring but cancelled. He is a rare guest that is a welcome addition to the con! Up next is…
Hurricane Helms has been added by Eric Simms, who returns to the Big Event after a years-long ban. Pre-orders for Helms are up and will be added to the pre-order page.
First and foremost: a very happy and healthy New Year to all of you. The calendar has flipped to 2018 and Big Event is just a couple short months away. We have some additions – and one cancellation – to breakdown:
