I’m excited to be a part of the Mid Atlantic Legends Fanfest Weekend in Charlotte, August 1-4.
Among the many activities planned for the four day event will be a Future Wrestling Legends Training Camp. Les Thatcher, Gerry Brisco, Tully Blanchard, Leilani Kai and I will be conducting more than 30 hours of in ring training and locker room study. I’ve done many camps with Les Thatcher over the years. I’ve worked with Gerry Brisco in the ring and at WWE. Tully Blanchard was a star in Texas when I began my career and soon left for Charlotte to help form the legendary Four Horseman. Leilani Kai is one of the legendary women wrestlers from back in the day who knows her craft. This will be an opportunity for wrestlers, referees and managers to learn and pick the brains of some of the most experienced coaches in the business.
The coaches and fans will vote on the “Best of Camp” and present a $2,500 scholarship in the memory of Reid Fliehr at the end of the week.
Charlotte is a city rich in pro wrestling tradition and the MAFF is a tremendous opportunity to see many of the legends who made Charlotte a hot bed for professional wrestling. The Hall of Heroes dinner and awards ceremony takes place Friday night, August 2. My old friends Jim Cornette, The Midnight Express, The Rock and Roll Express, Magnum TA, Les Thatcher, Danny Miller and Lars Anderson will be inducted that night. There will be live matches, autograph sessions and much more.

I usually try to write something about old school just because there’s enough people writing about what’s going on today. It doesn’t always work out that way but that’s my goal. Occasionally something will catch my attention and I feel like writing about it…
