Big Event IX Cancelations: Bob Orton & Jimmy Snuka

Hey now.

K&S WrestleFest advertised quite the lineup for Big Event IX featuring Bret “The Hitman” Hart, “Cowboy” Bob Orton, “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka, Ken Patera, and Gene Snitsky.

Now? It’s just Hart, Patera, and Snitksy (it wasn’t his fault!).

Bummer for sure.

As reported last night, Ricky Steamboat is still scheduled to appear at Big Event IX thanks to the folks at Game Changer Wrestling.

Snuka’s reasoning is obvious – the dude is being charged with murder. I don’t think attending his billionth convention is high on his priority list.

Orton’s cancelation, however, has gone unexplained. He’s still penciled in for Legends of the Ring XXI in Monroe, NJ, on October 3rd.

I’m definitely curious why Steamboat distanced himself from K&S…

LOTR Brings Shawn Michaels to WrestleCon!

Hey now.

WrestleCon is months away but that hasn’t stopped the folks at Legends of the Ring from announcing their headlining guest:

Michaels was the headlining guest at Legends of the Ring XX and will serve as headlining guest for Big Event IX in November.

WrestleCon will take place in Dallas during WrestleMania weekend.

Sgt. Slaughter Added to LOTR XXI Superticket!

Hey now.

The 2nd to last Superticket talent for Legends of the Ring XXI has been revealed:

Solid choice. That’s 11 revealed, 1 to go! By the way, less than 20 Supertickets remain. If you’re planning on attending LOTR and want to meet the majority of the S.T. talent then PLEASE invest in a Superticket (which includes admission!). You’ll be saving some dough.

Here is the S.T. lineup this far:

  1. Taz
  2. Vickie Guerrero
  3. Mike Rotundo
  4. Barry Windham
  5. Don Muraco
  6. Gerald Brisco
  7. Carlito
  8. George “The Animal” Steele
  9. Dan Spivey
  10. Lacey Von Erich
  11. Sgt. Slaughter
  12. ?

Dan Spivey added to Big Event IX; Photo Op With Sid On Sale!

Hey now.

So Dan Spivey was announced as a Superticket guest for Legends of the Ring XXI a few days ago. He’s also going to be a vendor guest at Big Event IX, courtesy of TMART Promotions.

Prices are as followed:

$15.00 for 1 Autograph or 1 Photo Op

No combo and the pricing is the same at LOTR XXI. HOWEVER, it is noted that Spivey will be reunited with his former tag team partner Sid and TMART is jumping on the chance to capitalize on that. Prices:

Sky Scrapers Tag Team Photo Op: $30.00

Sky Scrapers VIP Package (2 Autographs and Photos with each): $80.00

The VIP package is on-sale until October 1st.
