In an update to Rosita not appearing at the WrestleReunion convention due to an appearance at the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings inLondon, England, WrestleReunion sent out word over the weekend on their website that Rosita has now been officially added as a vendor guest of Scott Epstein. Other updates include “Superstar” Billy Graham, “Leaping” Lanny Poffo, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine and Larry Zbyszko as appearing at the event.
MEXPW have confirmed Supreme, Messiah, and Kris Kloss. For more information on their booth, you can check out their website at http://www.MEXPW.com.
WrestleReunion also noted that they received a call from Charles Wright, best known for his roles as Papa Shango, Kamala and The Godfather and despite not keeping anything from the original Papa Shango gimmick, he phoned them back and said that if the fans wanted him to appear as Papa Shango, he would be willing to and is buying the original top hat, with WrestleReunion buying the rest of the attire to make him as original as possible and bringing in a smoke machine for voodoo effect.
Scott Steiner will also be appearing at the event despite concerns by others. Abdullah the Butcher has been confirmed by American Icon Autographs. RF Video has confirmed Chavo Guerrero Jr. Meanwhile, The Papa Shango, Vader, and Fifi Bikini deluxe photos have been added.
Mick Foley also commented on his appearance where he’ll be appearing as Mankind, Cactus Jack and Dude Love, “Even when I was all three characters, all I did was a quick change of clothes – remember the 1998 Royal Rumble? Unfortunately, I don’t have any more of the brown shirts; only 3 were ever made – one was sold, one was auctioned for charity, and one was donated to the hall of fame in Amsterdam. I know from experience that the great majority of fans prefer the Mankind with the shirt and tie, as that was the version who did the Cell match, won the three WWE titles, did This is Your Life withe Rock, etc. I’ll make sure Cactus has the Wanted shirt and flannel vest, and that Dude will have the tye dye, headband/bandana and shades. Keep in mind that I’m 46 now, with shorter hair, and therefore won’t look exactly like any of the characters in their prime. But I will do my very best to make all three photos/videos distinctively different, and will do the interviews in the distinctly different characters – although fans who think I can still cut 1995 ECW Cactus Jack promos may be in for a disappointment. The Mankind and Dude promos will be far more fun, anyway. Thanks..I will do my very best to make this a great experience for people”
