I'm game if I need a handful of people, despite the toll travel. At least here I can walk in, get who I want, and leave. No blocks!

I've heard Bret Hart's name floated around but a few vendors but, apparently, it might not work out. I don't think I need him anymore, pretty much cleaned up on him at the last show.

Hulk is the only one left I want ( other than Vinnie MAc and the never possible Kliq pic orhbk/HHH). I can hope.

If you've been doing cons for more than a year and you don't have Bret Hart you haven't tried. He has done Big event and RF just had him at ricc

I'm not going to this one unless Trish Stratus or maybe Stacy Keibler shows. I seriously doubt the latter will happen anytime soon.

Trish has an insanely high appearance fee, around $20K (what Mysterio asks for).

Met Bret Hart and HBK once already and I'm good for life on them. Same with Hogan, Goldberg, Jericho, Flair, Sting and a number of others that rotate in and out of every three conventions.

I still need a lot of territory, WCW and other random guests, and a few big names I still don't have (Steve Austin and Stacy Keibler are the main ones). And there are probably less than 10 names that have made appearances at events I didn't go to that I can still use (Lacey Von Erich and Gorgeous George, for example).

Ira, is this new vendor likely to bring in anyone rare? Or people like Maven, XPac and Koko B. Ware?

RICC had them both (Spoiler), and I got them both!

Yeah, RICC/NYCC is where a promoter could make up their $$$. No shot at LOTR/Big Event, I would imagine.

You don't have to listen to rumblings, just listen to one of his old shoot interviews - the guy is completely NUTS, lol.

And he doesn't come off in the whacky, comedic, Iron Sheik style of being nuts, it's more in the schizophrenic "this guy might snap and hurt people" sort of way.

I got that vibe when I met David Schultz. He was a fucking scary loon.

Mysterio has done plenty of one-off store signings, and dinky cons like Big Apple in the past, so I don't buy that. TBH, ditto Trish. She was at RICC two days, and Rey a day and a half, and neither had more than a couple or three waiting in the line. As with anything else it's all about pricing, but Rey seems willing to go to these cons, but Trish not so much.

As I said in my report, main wants are Rick Martel, flakey Ahmed Johnson, Haku aka Meng, Edge/Christian dual, Konnan, Saturn, Ernest "The Cat" Miller, Malenko, William Regal, Horace Hogan, Norman Smiley, D'Lo Brown, Bradshaw, Steve Blackman, and Rev Slick. Minor want include Juventud, Charles Robinson, Taka Michinoku, Fit Finley, Psychosis, Val Venis, Rikishi, Earl Hebner. Other wants are not Big Event territory.

People keep asking LOTR to bring in Steve Blackman and they seem dead against it because he appeared once, years ago. It's kind of bizarre.
