Two new guest announcements. Up first:
Notice the pre-order info in the first comment. We have the potential for a Super Crazy/Juventud Guerrera photo op — maybe someone can bring in Psychosis!
Up next is Brutus Beefcake. He’s doing a book tour, so I would imagine he’d have copies available the day of the event.
Sad news to report. According to a Facebook announcement from Ultimate Starz it appears that Jake “the Snake” Roberts has cancelled his upcoming appearance at Big Event XIV:
Talk about a big guest! Current NXT General Manager and wrestling legend William Regal has been added to the Big Event XIV by MZ Promotions.
MZ Promotions has previously brought in WWE road agents Dean Malenko, Billy Kidman, and Jamie Noble, so it’s not surprising that they were able to bring in Regal. I am #excited
Via her official Twitter account:
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.
