I've been to comic book conventions.  I've been to winter baseball caravans and conventions.  I know how hardcore and geeky those can get.
I cannot imagine how insane an old time rasslin' convention is.

a bunch of guys who never kissed a girl and live in their moms basement. A few who need that 15th autograph of ole Anderson to complete a set, and me and Snott making fun of them

And those that believe they're "in the business" trying to haggle a free ticket at the door. Oh, you already mentioned you and Snott.
Regardless of what Grog may have you believe, there are oldschool wrestling fans from all walks of life. Young and old, rich and poor, smart and dumb, makes no difference. Not just from the Carolinas, but folks from all over the U.S. and all over the world.

Pretty sure Grog was using sarcasm, as I myself can attest to the events as being super fun and a great time. The interactions between the fans and talent is great. I've made some great friends.
They're great overall. I just wish the promoter was more honest about certain things.

I went this year. I ended up sitting with Ron from this board at the dinner part. The crowd was the cross section of wrestling fandom. You will find normal dudes and chicks to weirdos. It was great to drink beer and talk wrestling . I plan to attend the 2017 fest

I went last year. Thinking it was the last one and using that as motivation, even though a lot of guys that had been in previous years didn't attend. All throughout, it was said it was the last one, only to hear less than a month later that it would continue (this year). And of course, so many that I wanted to see while I was there, came out this year.

But, I still had a blast nonetheless. Meeting guys like Eadie, Cornette, Magnum TA, Ivan Koloff, Steamboat, Ole, Jim Ross, Jerry Brisco, Valiant, and Race were all major highlights. Hopefully, I'll make it out again next year.

Definitely not trying to be argumentative, but would like to correct a couple misconceptions in your first paragraph.
On the first night of the 2015 Fanfest, during the Thursday night Q&As, it was announced Fanfest was moving to Myrtle Beach for 2016 and that tickets were going on sale the following morning (Friday morning.)
The week of Thanksgiving 2015, 3 1/2 months later and after more than a few issues with the host Myrtle Beach hotel, we nixed the March 2016 Myrtle Beach Fanfest and decided to come back to Charlotte in August of this year.
And definitely not trying to be sarcastic, but I approach every year as if it were the last. If folks don't support it, it very well could be.
I'm glad you had a blast, and hope you can make it out again!

Yes, you're right Greg. There was the talk of Myrtle Beach, I recall that now.

And time is obviously speeding up for me as it merely only seemed to be about a month later.

Nonetheless, I did have fun and hope to make another.

I heard interactions between Superstar Billy Graham and the Promoters are pretty funny.
