"Mid-Atlantic Wrestle Expo" Coming to Richmond in 2017

Commonwealth Productions has announced the inaugural "Mid-Atlantic Wrestle Expo" for May 19-20, 2017 coming to the Greater Richmond Convention Center in downtown Richmond, VA. The two-day fan event will feature appearances by some of the great legends in pro-wrestling.

Already announced is the return of Demolition to Richmond for the first time in over 20 years. Not much else is known at this point about other talent making appearances at the Expo, but it is early and announcements will be forthcoming in the next weeks and months.

Based on information currently on their website, it appears the event will be broken down into three main phases:

(1) a "Dinner with Demolition" on Friday night
(2) the main Expo/convention with autographs, photos, and memorabilia on Saturday
(3) wrestling matches Saturday night

They have a tentative schedule on their website at, and other information there as well.

We've long  thought that Richmond would make a great place for a wrestling convention. This one takes place a stone's throw away from the historic Richmond Coliseum where many of the great Mid-Atlantic Wrestling / Jim Crockett Promotions took place in the 1970s and 1980s.

We will continue to pass along updates as we go get closer to the event. You can follow the Mid-Atlantic Wrestle Expo on their website, on their Facebook page, or by following them on Twitter.
