I’ve personally attended this event for the past 2 years and I thoroughly enjoyed it both times. It’s an intimate event and all of the wrestlers are very accessible and approachable. Me and my friends got to chat with the likes of Domenic Denucci, Ivan Koloff, Paul Vachon, Danny Hodge, Bruno Sammartino and many others. It’s a fantastic weekend and if you can go, I highly recommend it!
