Is anyone here planning to attend the NWA Legends Fan Fest in Charlotte, NC at the University Hilton.  Its Thursday August 6 - Sunday August 9.  Its kind of like a Star Trek Convention for Wrestling Fans (Many who have never kissed a girl and live in their parents basements)  If you get past that its a really good time.  Some interesting Q&A sessions, indy wrestling matches (with a legend or 2 thrown in like the Abdullah the Butcher vs Steve Corino match already booked), there is a pretty good vendor room where a who's who of the wrestling memorabilia world (George Mayfieldi, Rob Fienstein, High spots, etc) selling DVDs, photos, posters, action figures,etc, the autograpgh stage (I steer clear of that), and usually a really wild time in the hotel bar each night.  This is where you can toss drinks back with anyone from Sir Oliver Humperdink to Harley Race to r. Delaware.

It's also been announced that the original Four Horsemen will be reunited at the convention. I won't be attending, but I've sent a some mail order.

Ole in the same room as Flair? That should be interesting.

I really would love to go to one of these. Every year at this time I always say "I'm going to get organized about this and plan to go next year."
But then a few weeks later when the fan fest talk dies down I always forget...until next year. It's a shame too 'cause all the guys I would want to see just are not going to be around to many more years unfortunately.

Barry Windham will be part of this...so you have the original and the best vision of the horsemen in one room.

I hope that nwalegends will be selling a auto pic of the 1988 vision like they did the original group a few years ago.

I think that Doc Delaware would have jizzed on His MSG master tapes if He could read that.

Here's the response I got from NWA Legends direct Greg whatshisname via email in reference to a signed photo ordered through the mail of The Original Four Horsemen. Not sure if they have a similar deal for the Barry Windham group.

We also have a nice 16"x20" photo signed by all 5 for $109. That includes shipping in a plastic toploader and 5 4"x6" photos of them signing it.

That sounds like the one he was selling a very years ago. I have that its a really great pic.

Guess I ll email him to see if they are doing anything with the windham group. That picture of the group with all the titles would be a good one to get signed.

The bar is the draw for me.  Be it Buddy Landell working the marks for free drinks, to Gary Hart and Oliver Humperdink and me talking managing, to the Manny Fernandez, Somoa Joe, Major DeBeers chop fest its a good time.

You should ask Chris OTL about his and mine's experience w/Col DeBeers, it's a pretty good one.

Col DeBeers or Major DeBeers?  If Major DeBeers was involved good chance I was there for it.

I dont know who Major Debeers is, but Col Debeers(Ed Wiskowski?) was funny as hell @ CAC a few years back, trashing many folks and the biz. Chris and I were crying from laughing so hard, good guy Ed is.

By the way Grog, I'll see you @ FF.

I sent my original four horsemen poster through the mail a few years ago to get signed by arn & tully. Not only was my poster misplaced, but tully never even signed it. Greg's response pretty much made me feel like he could not give a crap and the shit happens. Horrible business man in my opinion. I'd love to know how he gets that price for the poster this year. I paid more than that to have Flair sign mine at Caroline's in NYC.

from Price on facebook.

I am looking for someone out there that has some incredible Four Horsemen pics, good possibilities for 8x10s or even posters. What I can't use is low-res pics from the internet, but if someone has actual photos or magazines that can be scanned at 300dpi or higher, I'd like to hear from you. If we use your image, I'll make sure you get a nice "reward" for your help. Please email me at NWALegends@aol.com Thanks!

It doesn't get better than a drunk fan going to every worker at the bar to get chopped.

I love Fanfest. Been going since they started. It's a great opportunity to get merchandise (for me, that means season sets of ... just about whatever), meet wrestlers, and just hang out with old friends.

No matter the line up, it's a blast each year.
