Jim Cornette To Host Live "Experience" Opening Night,
Emcee Hall of Heroes Awards Ceremony, and More!
One of our most popular guests returns to Charlotte this month for our final Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend. Strangely enough, the same guy was one of the most hated personalities in wrestling over the past three decades.
We're very happy to have the "Louisville Lip" Jim Cornette, famed manager of the Midnight Express and Heavenly Bodies tag teams, and he has a jam-packed schedule while he's here!
As has become customary on opening night, Cornette will tape his "Jim Cornette Experience" podcast in front of a live fanfest audience. On Friday night, July 31, Cornette returns as emcee for our eighth annual Hall of Heroes awards ceremony.
But that's not all! Throughout the day, each day of fanfest, you'll find the controversial manager at the "Cornette's Collectibles" booth in our vendor room where, among many wrestling rarities, you'll find "The Lost Classics," an 18-DVD set of rare Mid-Atlantic arena matches from the 1970s.
SoCal Val To Host First-Ever Fanfest Pool Party!
One of the sweetest, most charming females in all of wrestling, SoCal Val, is coming to Charlotte and she's bringing the party with her, sorta.
The voluptuous 29-year-old redhead has worn many hats in wrestling -- valet, interviewer, manager, ring announcer -- but she's most widely recognized for her years as a TNA Knockout. She'll be signing autographs and taking photos with fans on Friday, July 31, and she will host fanfest's first-ever "Pool Party" on Saturday afternoon, August 1.
So get your speedos and your string bikinis, and we'll see you at poolside in Charlotte!
Ricky Steamboat, Jay Youngblood Among Those To Be Honored At Hall of Heroes Awards Dinner In Charlotte!
Five-time former NWA World Tag Team champions Ricky Steamboat and the late Jay Youngblood are among those to be honored at the eight annual Hall of Heroes dinner and awards ceremony, part of this month's Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend in Charlotte.
Extremely popular in the Carolinas in the early-1980s, the team is probably best remembered for their feuds first with Sgt. Slaughter and The Privates, and then later with Jack and Jerry Brisco. Sadly, Youngblood passed away unexpectedly in 1985.
Steamboat will attend the awards ceremony Friday night, July 31, and it's expected that Youngblood's brothers, Mark and Chris, will be on hand to accept on his behalf.
The entire Hall of Heroes "Class of 2015" should be announced very soon.

Good Ol' J.R. To Narrate Mid-Atlantic Documentary,
Host This Summer's World Premiere In Charlotte!
Hall-of-Fame announcer Jim Ross has revealed that he'll be the narrator for our fan-funded "Mid-Atlantic Memories" documentary and host it's World Premiere Thursday, July 30 at our Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend in Charlotte.
"Jim Ross' involvement in this project really puts our film over the top," says the documentary's producer John Andosca. "His expertise on the wrestling business is second to none, and the insight and perspective he has shared on film for us gives this documentary an incredible level of credibility."
"If you're a fan of pro wrestling, you have to be a fan of the Mid-Atlantic territory," says Ross. "Like so many other great territories, they laid the bedrock for the foundation of the genre as we know it today. This film is going to be so unique."
A very special "RINGSIDE with Jim Ross" will follow the premiere showing of the film. The two-hour stage show, Ross' first in the Southeast, will feature reactions from many of those in the film and in attendance for the initial showing.
"Fans are going to be in for a real treat at the event," says Andosca. "Not only will they be able to relive Mid-Atlantic memories through the debut of our film, but they will also be able to make so many new memories by continuing the legacy of Mid-Atlantic Wrestling through Fanfest Weekend."
