The eighth edition of Heroes and Legends hits Ft. Wayne, Indiana this Sunday, and I can’t wait. This will be my first wrestling convention as a vendor, and I’ll be bringing copies of Bluegrass Brawlers, Eat Sleep Wrestle, Louisville’s Greatest Show, Lord Carlton, Kenny Bolin’s book, and the new release by Herb Welch, How to Become a Champion.
Heroes and Legends is a huge one day event where you can meet some of the greatest stars in wrestling, past and present. Rick Flair, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Jerry “The King” Lawler, Bushwhacker Luke, Marty Jannetty, Tracy Smothers, and Sandman will be there, but you can also see and meet a number of more recent WWE stars like Swoggle, Aldo Rose, Mr. Anderson, and Ryback along with numerous independent heroes like Kikutaro, Rob Conway, Sugar Dunkerton, Tyson Dux, Kongo Kong, Hy Zaya, Amazing Maria, Shane Mercer, Su Yung, Samantha Heights, and Mad Man Pondo.
Fans will also be treated to not one but TWO wrestling shows, beginning with the Girl Fight Show in the afternoon and concluding with the annual Heroes and Legends show, headlined by two super heavyweights in Ryback and Kongo Kong.
