"I can't wait to get to fanfest!" he said recently. "I've been before, as a fan, and am always blown away by the tremendous lineup of both legends and today's superstars. This year, not only do I get the chance to do a little crimefighting inside the ring, but I am honored to preside over the Hall of Heroes spectacle. It's the biggest night of fanfest, with all of the wrestling stars and fans sitting side-by-side, honoring some of our sport's all-time greats!"

SNEAK PREVIEW: "Mid-Atlantic Memories" Documentary!

Here's a snippet of our "Mid-Atlantic Memories" film that is currently in production. In this "sneak preview," the legends involved discuss the phenomenal Rock-n-Roll Express vs. Midnight Express feud that captivated audiences throughout the south in the mid-1980's.

We're releasing this "sneak preview" to give you a look at the production values employed by producer John Andosca, who is helping us preserve forever the great memories of wrestling in the Carolinas during the past half-century.

"We need your help, and we need to get you involved." Those words, spoken by the legendary "Voice of Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling" Bob Caudle, are sincere.

"Mid-Atlantic Memories" is a ground-breaking movie project looking at wrestling in the Carolinas during the '60s, '70s and '80s. Wrestling the way it used to be, as told by the promoters, the wrestlers and the fans -- the folks that lived it, and the folks that LOVED IT!

Thanks for taking a moment to watch this "sneak preview," and please take a moment to watch our introductory videos from Bob Caudle and Jim Cornette as both explain the concept.
