Legends of the Ring 27 went exactly as I anticipated: stress-free and relatively easy with only one major cancellation in Scott Hall, who announced his cancellation on Twitter a day before the convention (it appears that his mother is ill). Hall’s cancellation was a bit of a blow for me as I really wanted the Outsiders dual photo op but hopefully I’ll be able to score one soon (though I highly doubt it’ll happen at the upcoming Big Event).
Jenna and I stayed overnight at the Ramada (super cheap deal on Expedia!) and checked in around 11:30 PM. We immediately spotted Billy Gunn, his son, and Bull Dempsey talking outside while Virgil was chilling in the lobby with a couple of people. I also spotted one of the Beverly Brothers at the front-desk. Jenna and I ended up riding the elevator with Gunn.
There’s a little shakeup to the LOTR Superticket via their Facebook page:
Due to a family emergency he posted about in Twitter
Scott Hall will not be appearing.
with only a few hours to spare we replaced him with
due to an afternoon commitment Backlund will be appearing from 9:00-11:30.
although we do not like to disappoint fans sometimes life happens and we are thankful we were able to offer a replacement last minute.
Hall announced last night via Twitter that he was unable to appear tomorrow morning:
I know we’re all keeping Hall and his mother in our thoughts.
