J.W. looks back at "the Granddaddy"

One of our favorite blogs to check in on from time to time is J.W.'s Wrestling Memorabilia. he has memorabilia on display from all eras and all territories and federations. Our favorite stuff, as you might imagine, is anything that has to do with Mid-Atlantic Wrestling and Jim Crockett Promotions.

The 2009 Fanfest program that featured
a reunion of the Four Horsemen.
Recently, J.W. posted his reflections on the Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legends Fanfest that has been held most years each August in Charlotte. There is no event this August, and we are sad about that, having had a great time there each year visiting our wrestling friends, many of whom we don't get a chance to visit with except at this event. Plus, it is always great fun seeing some of the great stars of wrestling from years gone by (and some of the new stars today.)

The personal highlight for the Gateway boys last year was our inclusion in the Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legends Hall of Heroes, which was recognition for our efforts on the Mid-Atlantic Gateway website. We remain grateful for that recognition and were honored to be inducted by one of our all time heroes, the voice of Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Bob Caudle.

So we thought we'd share a link to J.W.'s post of some of his favorite Fanfest memories. Here's hoping for Fanfest to return in 2018!
