It's a good original guest for a wrestling con. But no I don't think many on here will be happy.

There sadly really isn't much to get wrestling wise. Everyone is either

a) too expensive

b) has been everywhere 1000 times

c) has no interest in coming out

d) dead

I don’t think LT is a shit guest. He is a legit wrestlemania main eventer and has never done a wrestling con. How many others are there?

LT appears in the area countless times a year to sign and whatnot. In fact, he'll probably be more expensive at Big Event than usual. His "main event" was judged by many to be a true low-light in both his and the WWF's timelines. Whereas Dennis Rodman performed for short bursts over a 3-year period, and remains a wrestling fan. LT couldn't care less. If you watch his documentary, it's even moreso that all he cared about was getting money for drugs. His match was the worst ever at a Wrestlemania, as he barely practiced, and ran out of energy after a short time. He was a blip if not a pimple on the radar of wrestling history. Oh wait, what am I saying??? A third-rate wrestling career? He's perfect for Big Event!

Wow so you actually care if a guest is a “fan” or not? In saw many Rodman performances in wow that were terrible. He even did one in tna where you could tell he hated it. I thought bam bam pulled a hell of a match out of someone who never did it before.

I don't care one way or the other. The point is LT, perhaps the greatest defensive player in NFL history, was an utter disgrace in a wrestling ring. This is simply B.E. promoters having nowhere left to go, so they go with LT, who they've booked before for football stuff. Yes, they've had Pete Rose there, I understand that. To promote LT as one of your headliners is just pathetic. Sorry. It's terrible. People on FB thought it was Edge, who would have been great for many fans. LT is as bad as booking UFC headliners. Wrestling fans don't care. Wait till they see what LT charges to sign! This is the show many hoped would return Hogan to the area. ROFL

I don’t agree. I think he is a decent guest. I don’t think he will do great. Pete rose and mike Tyson didnt either. You are right on the price.

LT football wise was before my time and his WM match was bad. Easy pass for me, assuming I even go.

My two cents:

I will not meet L.T. but I don't mind the Big Event bringing in athletes that have some connection to pro wrestling. I probably wouldn't have labeled him as a "headliner" though.

The Big Event has brought in some strong headliners over the past few years: Mysterio, HBK, Goldberg, Bruno, etc. We've touched on this in the LOTR thread (and I really don't want to have the same conversation in this thread): there's just not many new headliners to bring in. I understand that people want Hogan but his asking price has supposedly been sky-high.

In my opinion, this is shaping up to be a strong lineup and I'm looking forward to the show (as always).
