Yes it is. I wanted to go last year since Heenan made a rare appearance there but I was low on funds unfortunately. It seems like it will be a regular thing now as they usually have another one during the fall as well. They already announced a 2 day event next January during Rumble weekend.

Awesome. It's hard for me to travel much with my schedule but that'd be another event up my alley.

i've interacted briefly with wrestlers. Had a short conversation with AR Fox at an indy show after he left EVOLVE. He wasn't very fond of Gabe, at the time. He went nuts in the match to impress Tajiri, whom was also in a tag match.

Recently, I met Mick Foley. He asked for my name.. I said "Bob" and he asked how to spell it. So, I spelled it for him. He looked at me like "no shit", and I just grinned like don't make dumb jokes, Mick.

Bret Hart was at the last legend fest here in Philly last fall and it was a disaster line wise from what I've read. One guy said he waited in line for 3 hours. With Flair being the big name this time around the line will no doubt be just as insane.

I've met Chris Jericho, Bret Hart, Sara Del Rey, Daniel Bryan, Colt Cabana, Johnny Gargano, pretty much the entire CHIKARA roster 2009-2014, Titus O'Neal, Darren Young, and a handful of other indy people. I've never really had a bad experience. I was in nervous-mark mode for Bret and Jericho, but they were polite and nice. At one point I was at ease being in the same hallways, etc as the ROH and CHIKARA guys, got used to saying casual hello's or just letting them do their thing without making them be "on" all the time.

The CHIKARA guys are beyond friendly and use each intermission as spontaneous fan-fests of sorts.
