  1. Colt does an awesome podcast called Art of Wrestling, you can listen to all the back episodes on Soundcloud iirc. Gets really good guests, he's had Flair, Foley, HBK, Ambrose, Rollins, Neville off the top of my head. He's also Punk's best friend, they were RoH tag champs back in the day. Really glad Colt was there and that I got to meet him, nice to see a non WWE/TNA wrestler included. Edge and RVD were great too, RVD really is exactly how you'd imagine Well technically he was a WWE wrestler - just not for very long. Ha, yeah so he was, I'd completely forgotten that. But he's not primarily famous for that.

  3. Grant Gustin would be the ultimate, but even fitting the clues I'm at least 96% sure it's not him. Not certain if she's done signings before, but if not Taylor Schilling would also be amazing. Pretty sure it's someone from GoT though.
  4. Still subject to WWE approval. Plus he'll be off the list the day before LFCC anyway, 30 day suspension.
  5. Heart says Coster-Waldau cos he was guessed before the Twitter cut off, and has a film out tomorrow. Head says probably Tobin Bell.
  6. It won't be. He's said numerous times he doesn't want to do signing events. He doesn't even have an agent.
  7. A hill is smaller than a mountain. Maria Hill is taller than Tyrion Lannister. Cobie Smulders! I'm a genius.
  8. I think the guest announcement followed by a date for when tickets go on sale (end of the month perhaps to encompass pay day for most people) will allow funds to be secured for purchases. This means those who want to get them can and those who do not will not have the need to "negatively respond" after the hype.I don't see how waiting to put the tickets on sale will stop the negativity? Because when people wait a week to find out who the guest announcement is, only to find they have never heard of them, then that's where they start dropping comments about it being an anti-climax etc. If you just post a guest out of nowhere whilst still giving a heads up when tickets go on sale, then only the people interested in the guest will be commenting. Compare last night's announcement to the likes of Mads etc. (which didn't come with a 'Big announcement in 5 days' type fanfare) and you'll see. Explained it much better than me. Just announce guests without hype. If it's a popular guest have a few days delay on ticket sales so everyone has a chance to see the announcement.
  9. I remember a while ago somone suggesting that, for popular guests, instead of having hype threads, SM just announce the guests and have a delay before tickets go on sale. I think that's a good idea that seems to work elsewhere, and might help quell some of the negative feedback. It won't get rid of it, but it might reduce it if people aren't so amped up with ridiculous expectations when the guests are announced.
  10. Personally, I try never to say anything to or about anyone on the Internet that I wouldn't say to their face. Unfortunately there are lots of people who do become absolute {insert word of choice here} once they have a keyboard to hide behind. They don't have to see the effect they have on the other person so there is no process of empathy. If it's any consolation you're far from the only organiser that has to deal with this. LFCCs were the first events I went to any for a while pretty much the only ones. I'd be the first to say I used to get grumpy about guests from my favourite shows not being there. But at the end of the day that's not within my control. If I want to meet certain guests, then what's within my control is keeping my eye to the con-verse and travelling to wherever those people make appearances. Pointless getting mad at SM when it's not even completly within their control either. I find that way I actually enjoy LFCC more, since if there's stuff that's not my bag, or there aren't lots of guests from my favourite things, eh, that's on the horizon somewhere anyway. I'm just focused on the good stuff. Like Mads signing my Unit One DVD Having said that, I think it's a valid observation from a few years worth of LFCC that some very popular fandoms are never terribly well represented. I can see why those fans get frustrated, even if I don't necessarily agree with them or the way the show it. Of course there are a ton of possible reasons for this, and maybe there's nothing you can do about it. But I do think it is valid as a point of "room for improvement if possible".
  11. Would you be taking Facebook and Twitter into account? If you were there'd be no announcements until 2023
  12. Depends what London terminal you're coming in to and via what route really. Kensi gton Olympia can be a pain to get to from some places, others really easy. If you're coming Saturday then going to Olympia will probably bring you right out next to the queue.
  13. True.. are they still contracted under WWE though?Possibly. And I think Bryan is hoping to compete in weight lifting at the Olympics, which may be problematic. He did a small local competition, he's not going to be anywhere near the Olympics. Just wanted to ask my fellow wwe fans. Can showmasters book wrestlers who are still under contract? I know it's really unlikely to book the ones who are on the main roasters with their crazy schedules touring around America. But what about the superstars who are on the injury list? ie Neveile,Byran,Sasha?.. Del Rio came last year and now he's back on the show. Hi has far as I know SM can only get WWE stars which are under contract if they are not active wrestlers even if they are injured. So realistic guests could be Bryan, Sting, Austin etc.Del Rio was able to attend because he had left WWE at the time. Yep, WWE has control over appearances by anyone on a performer contract.
  14. I don't think you can get too hung up on guest lists at other cons, especially US ones. There are so many different variables between events, including the financial model the con uses and what kind of deals they agree with the guests. All you can really learn from other guest lists is which people might be willing to do cons if the situation and deal is right. Doesn't mean it will be, or that it's easy to get them.On a separate point, Cody Rhodes has now left WWE. He'd be a great guest. Don't forget Wade Barrett and Damien Sandow Sting and Daniel Bryan could also be realistic guests now that they have retired.True.. are they still contracted under WWE though? Possibly. And I think Bryan is hoping to compete in weight lifting at the Olympics, which may be problematic. A lot of guys who were forced to retire have said it's really hard to talk about or have anything to do with wrestling immediately after, so they may not want to do it anyway. I'd forgotten Sandow - Team Rhodes Scholars reunion! I want it written into his contract that he has to attend one day as Mizdow though

  17. Tom Ellis? Covers Lucifer, Miranda, Dr Who, Once Upon a Time.
  18. Adding to my post yesterday, Katie Cassidy of Arrow might be available, and she does do cons. And John Constantine himself Matt Ryan would be amazing.
  19. I'd immediately go for any of the following should you be able to get them signed up in time: Kyle MacLachlan Manu Bennett Sebastian Stan Emma Caulfield
  20. On this day, I see clearly, I must buy a photo shoot...
  21. Depends how much time you have, but it's only 15 minutes walk from Olympia to Hammersmith, which has Wagamama, Nando's, Byron, 'Spoons, Tortilla, Subway, Nero, Costa, Starbucks and McDonald's.
