Breaking down WrestleCon, Part 1: The Finer Details

With Big Event XVI in the rearview mirror, it’s time to turn our attention towards the annual mecca of professional wrestling conventions: WrestleCon.

WrestleCon is a 2-Day wrestling convention that’s held annually during every WrestleMania weekend. Their website advertises over 200+ guests in attendance (!!!), making it by far the biggest pro wrestling convention to hit the East Coast in quite sometime.

In Part 1 of the series, I’m aiming to provide a breakdown of WrestleCon: where is it, when is it, admission, and highlight important steps to take before the madness begins. Oh, and I’ll be sure to cover exclusive meet & greet opportunities. Let’s get to it.
