Fanfest VIP Q&A with Horseman J.J. Dillon

James J. Dillon, the leader of the Four Horsemen and author of the new book "Wrestlers Are Like Seagulls," will be featured in one of our VIP Question-and-Answer sessions at the NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest.

J.J. has done almost everything there is to do in wrestling. Following his days as an active wrestler, Dillon worked behind the scenes as a top executive for both the WWF and WCW. "Wrestlers Are Like Seagulls" is his unique story and experiences in more than 40 years in the sport.

J.J. Dillon will share some of those recollections and answer fans' questions from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, August 19. Other VIP Q&A guests at fanfest weekend are Terry Funk and Bret "Hit Man" Hart.

"Wrestlers Are Like Seagulls" is available now for preorder at
http://www.JJDillon.com, and will also be available at fanfest.

Stan Lane Autograph Signing July 30th

Sweet Stan Lane will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans at Inside Pitch's Toy, Hobby, Doll, Sportscard & NASCAR collectibles show at the Metrolina Expo Center in Charlotte, NC from 11 am-2 pm on Saturday, July 30.

Mailorder will be available for folks that can't make it.

Unfortunately, Stan will be unable to attend our NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest in August due to a prior boat racing commitment, so this will be a great opportunity to still catch up with Stan, get your Midnight Express stuff signed, and get your photo taken with him.
