Terry Funk cancels Big Event 18 appearance; Nzo added

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.

A return to form? Wrestling Universe, Shine, and Evolve 145

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:

Last-minute Big Event additions, cancellations, and notes

Image may contain: sky and cloud

We are ~24 hours away from the Big Event 18. The LaGuardia Plaza Hotel will be an absolute madhouse and I’ve noticed some last minute additions, cancellations, and some important notes re: the Deadman:

  • James EllsworthGillberg, Little Boogeyman, Kevin Sullivan, and Andrew Anderson were all recently added
  • Amy Webber and Joy Giovanni have been re-scheduled for November due to the Coronavirus outbreak
  • An important note about Undertaker tickets:

For The Undertaker come as soon as you can to pick up your pre purchased physical tickets. They will be only handed out after you pick up your admission..
Tickets can be picked up with your drivers license, state ID or passport.
The tickets are numbered.
Photo ops will be first. Autographs will follow the completion of photo ops. Starting at noon.
We will have Undertaker photos, boots, hats and urns for sale.
We will have 100 FAST PASS tickets for sale for $40 first come first serve.
Regardless of your ticket number this will get you to the front of the line. If you purchased a photo opp AND autograph this FAST PASS will get you to the front of BOTH lines! This will save you HOURS of time! These will sell out!
We do have a few autograph and photo op tickets left for sale. $200 CASH first come first serve. These will sell out also if you are needing more tickets


My Bronx Tale

I always look forward to the last weekend in January because I’m guaranteed to meet the New York Yankees of past and present. MAB Celebrity Services hosts a Yankee-centric show (Bronx Tale, Pinstripe Parade, etc.) that are typically loaded with talent.

This show was the exception.

The only current member of the team was its manager, Aaron Boone, who appeared in 2018 (and maybe last year though I can’t say for certain). Legitimate legends and/or Hall of Famers like Reggie Jackson, Dave Winfield, Tim Raines, and Paul O’Neill were scheduled to appear but they’re the definition of “Virgil-esque.”

Gary Sheffield was a fresh name but ultimately canceled. Lou Pinella was another fresh name but his prices were completely out of whack; speaking of out of whack prices, Luis Sojo and Jose Rijo were $40 a pop for photo ops!

Saturday morning was going to be incredibly, incredibly light for me: photo ops with Andruw Jones and Lee Mazelli with Bobby Shantz on Sunday.

So let’s get to this bite-sized report.

Catching up: Guest announcements for Big Event, Legends of the Ring

I hope everyone had a happy and healthy 2019! We’re just days away from the start of a new decade! Bananas.

I’ve been off the grid these past few weeks because life has been crazy (mostly good crazy) so I figured I’d make a post catching up on the latest guest announcements for Big Event and Legends.

Also, I plan on posting a Year-End Review starting today or tomorrow.
