We are very pleased to announce WWE Legend The Honky Tonk Man to LFCC

Roy Wayne Farris better known by his ring name The Honky Tonk Man, is an American professional wrestler.

 

He previously worked for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and World Wrestling Federation (WWF)--now WWE. He is best known for his first run with WWF, where he held the WWF Intercontinental Championship for a record 64 weeks, and lost it to Ultimate Warrior in the very first pay-per-view of SummerSlam.

Nice announcement. Have met the man 3 times before and he's always engaging with the fans. I'm really enjoying all the wrestling announcements and hoping to see some more for people I've not met. :thumbup:

Fantastic, more old school guests please. Look if you can get Demoltion, Powers Of Pain and Mr Fuji (who all do conventions) then I shall forever be in your debt :)

Not a wrestling fan myself, but my Mum is a huge fan, especially the old school wrestlers. I'll be getting an autograph for her! Please do bring more! :smile:

The increase in the wrestling guests is brilliant and there certainly is a market for it. I've been to a few signings and events recently just for wrestlers, some for just one wrestler, and they have been very busy and very well received so it's a good direction to go in.

 

I've introduced these shows to friends of mine who, like me, are massive wrestling fans and they are now attending your events because of the wrestling guests. So keep them coming. As has been mentioned by others there are many wrestlers wresting over here at the same time this year like the Steiner Brothers, Goldust and many others.

Yes more wrestlers!

 

 

Ideally more from the Attitude Era, and I reckon they will have a big draw from the kids watching then who are now older and have money to attend these conventions (like moi...)

One of the greatest IC champions of all time. Cannot wait for LFCC to come round now...

 

Maybe not the best place to put this but as per Jason's comment above how about trying to get Colt Cobana along. He is also along time fan of HTM and maybe he could do a live Art of Wrestling podcast at LFCC it would certainly help publisize the event among wrestling fans.

Million Dollar Man black / gold suit

Bret Hart leather with pink jacket / trousers

Hot Rod suit with Kilt & leather Jacket
