      i agree. i think the "dead" actors are pretty much a waste of money and space there/ give them a couple years off. try to get a  couple steelers an pirates an penguins, i had lunch with i think mr george at last years con and i mentioned the wrestling to him an he said  he wasnt sure if that was the right crowd (something to that affect) i told him" what are you nuts?" then explained to him that damn near any guy that reads comics watches wrestling and  that i thought he was overlooking his target audience for the con, just look at what the wrestlers did that he had there in the past. when people are lined out of the building to see foley an steele, in my mind that speaks volumes. hell, id get a honkytonk mans autograph. they could probably get him for a cup of coffee and a meal....lol

      Bruno has been around to a few places this year, and not sure how
      big of a draw he'd be, just for that fact. I'd like to see him
      again, always a class act.

      Yes Christy Hemme would be nice, or any of the other Divas other
      than Lita, or Stacy, as the've been used too many times around here.
      I think any of the guys in the classic superstars action figure line
      would be a big draw, as that seems to be a new trend, trying to get
      the figures signed. OR how about....... R V D! :)

      Also, I think I posted before... I had emailed Norm Conners,
      promoter  for IWC, and he told me, that he had tried to show up and
      put on a few matches, and maybe have some guys sign, but the
      promoters of the Comicon, didn't want THAT sort of entertainment
      there.
      Also, it would be neat to get some of the TNA guys... AJ Styles,
      Abyss, Samoa Joe, and I don't think it would be that hard, since
      they have also worked for IWC.

      Also, I was the one that mentioned... the Great Luke Ski.
      Had also heard from him, and he said he wrote to the promoter, but
      never heard anything.

      Pittsburgh is a great area, but seems like we always get the shaft
      on these sort of things. The toy show was great. Got Barry Williams.
      Not sure if he made much money, but it was different, and cool.
      I see in March they are having Chekov from Star Trek. I think that
      will be a big draw.
      At the Car show last year, John Schneider (Bo Duke, Smallville) drew
      a GREAT crowd.
      What's wrong with bringing some of those guys in?

      I would just like it to be known for more than just the "home of the
      Dawn of the Dead".
