Editor’s note: my apologies to Davey Vega and the folks at Missouri Wrestling Revival. I inadvertently called Vega Danny instead of Davey. Sorry!
It’s been an action-packed weekend. The 12th annual Cape Comic Con returned to Cape Girardeau, Missouri. There were plenty of vendors, artists and authors on hand. Costumed characters made their way around the Osage Center and several celebrity guests were there including Santiago Cirilo from the Walking Dead, voice actor Michael Nicolosi and lots of professional wrestlers.
I talked my buddy Tom Harness from Harness Digital Marketing into going or at least his alter ego iBatman. He’s the guest on today’s show. We talk more about his first experience at both Cape Con and later in the night with Cape Championship Wrestling.
Tom watched WWF back in the day but hasn’t experienced anything quite like CCW and “Sexy” Sarge for example. The ‘King of Dong Style’ Joey Ryan was there too. Tom’s reaction was priceless. Colt Cabana, Leva Bates and Jeff Cobb were also special guests who wrestled and a WWE Hall of Famer surprised fans by making a special appearance.
It was a fun day and we’re already looking forward to the 2018 Comic Con. Be sure to support my friends in the world of professional wrestling and beyond by following them on social media. Don’t forget to check out My 1-2-3 Cents the blog and KevinHunsBlogger too.
This weekend is the 12th Annual Cape Comic Con in Cape Girardeau, MO.
This year’s Cape Con preview episode features two of my favorite people and best friends, Jared and Nia Smith, of Talking Smit fame. We’re talking about some of our memories of recent Cape Con’s, the mistake that I made once and the good times had by all.
Learn about their favorite memories of their trips to Cape Con (spoiler, this pic place a part):
Cape Con 2017 will once again reunite me with my good friends, but we also talk about what is anticipated the most for them this year. Being that they’re both big wrestling fans, they’re eager to see two great nights of wrestling at the Arena. It’s Girl Fight and the Luna Vachon Memorial Tournament Friday night and the CCW Super Show Saturday night. Big names are brought to Southeast Missouri for a great weekend, and you can see them all (and the CCW talent) at the Con itself.
Enjoy the show. We get a silent cameo from my son who walked over to the broadcast area late in the show (he was a little more vocal about midway through).
Cape Championship Wrestling has been entertaining wrestling fans in southeast Missouri, southern Illinois and western Kentucky for nearly a year. CCW will have a big presence at this year’s Cape Con event. On Friday, April 21 it’s ladies night as CCW teams up with Madman Pondo for Girl Fight. It’s the first ever Luna Vachon Memorial Tournament.
Then on Saturday, April 22 it’s the CCW Super Show. You’ll see all the stars of CCW including champion Brandon Barbwire, tag champs Farmer Billy Hills & Dell Tucker and Austin Lane. Plus guests scheduled to appear include Colt Cabana, Joey Ryan and Jeff Cobb. The company’s COO Jason Wells explains more in today’s podcast.
Stride Pro Wrestling is working on a big show in May. It includes a TLC match for the Stride Pro Wrestling championship as Heath Hatton defends against Roger Matheus. And former WWE Superstar (Brodus Clay) Tyrus will also be on hand.
It’s a great time for indy wrestling. Come out and support the men and women of the mat. Thanks!
