CHARLOTTE, NC - HILTON UNIVERSITY PLACE HOTEL
Canadian Football League Hall-of-Famer and NWA Wrestling Legend Angelo Mosca Confirms Fanfest Appearance!
"Big Nasty!" The nickname was certainly appropriate -- both on the football field and in the squared circle. One of the all-time greats in both the Canadian Football League and professional wrestling, Angelo Mosca has confirmed his intentions to be with us in Charlotte this August for our NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend.
Mosca, a big, mean and nasty defensive tackle, played in a record nine Grey Cup games, the CFL's equivalent to the Super Bowl. In 2011, he co-wrote his life story, "Tell Me To My Face."
Like many football players-turned-pro wrestlers, he began wrestling in the off-season, while still playing for the Hamilton Tiger Cats. When he retired from the gridiron after the 1972 season, he transitioned full-time to wrestling.
"King Kong" Mosca had tremendous success in many territories, not only the National Wrestling Alliance but the AWA and WWWF as well.
Five times he held the Canadian Heavyweight championship belt, which is now owned by fanfest regular Chris Kovachis. Chris caught up with Mosca at a Hamilton, Ontario book signing last September, where this photo was taken of the former champ being reunited with the authentic ring-worn belt he once held.
With special thanks to Chris, the championship belt will be available to fans to use as a prop for photo ops with Mosca at this year's fanfest weekend in Charlotte.
Angelo Mosca joins Johnny Powers, Austin Idol, Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson of the Rock-n-Roll Express, former NWA referee Tommy Young, former NWA World Junior champion Denny Brown, former rivals Tully Blanchard and Magnum TA, and former Mid-Atlantic and World Wide TV wrestling hosts Bob Caudle and Rich Landrum as the first eleven featured guests for this year's reunion, which takes place Thursday through Sunday, August 2-5 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Our three-day, four-night get-together returns to the Queen City's beautiful Hilton University Place hotel, and you're now able to secure your spot amongst a bevy of wrestling's greatest heroes and villains and hundreds of old school wrestling fans just like yourself!
You may now purchase online -- using your credit card, debit card, or checking account -- your VIP "All Access" Passes and Hall of Heroes tickets for the 2012 NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend!
Save $10 when you purchase your Hall of Heroes ticket at the same time!
Book Your Hotel Rooms Now For Charlotte Fanfest!
The Hilton University Place is the host hotel for this year's NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend. The hotel is offering a special $95 group rate for those that book early.
Keep in mind, we have a limited number of rooms at this great rate, so please make your room reservations as soon as you're certain of your travel plans. The $95 group rate will expire on July 16, 2012 or whenever we fill our block of rooms, whichever comes first.
Remember, Charlotte is the heart of stock car country (the hotel is just a couple miles down the road from Charlotte Motor Speedway and dozens of NASCAR race shops in the region,) and home to Paramount's Carowinds (the Carolinas' premier theme park and family entertainment destination, including WindSeeker -- new for 2012 -- sending riders soaring 301 feet above the park at over 30 miles per hour and providing dramatic views of the greater Charlotte region,) so why not make it a summer vacation and take in a little bit of everything?
Make reservations online at Hilton Reservations, call 1-800-HILTONS or the hotel directly at (704) 547-7444. When making reservations online, please use theGroup/Convention Code: NWA. If you make reservations by phone, identify yourself as part of the NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest in order to receive the special group rate.
