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.
