This weekend, Trish Stratus heads to Wilmington, NC for the first-ever wrestling convention focused around the women of the squared circle.
There are two great events happening on Saturday, May 23rd in the Port City that will allow for a unique opportunity for fans of female competition to meet their heroes & watch the future of the game. The Women in Wrestling Fan Expo will have autograph signings featuring such names as Trish Stratus, Amy (former WWE Diva Lita), Lisa Moretti, (former WWE Diva Ivory), Lisa Marie Varon (former WWE Diva Victoria/former TNA Star Tara), former WWE Diva Terri Runnels and Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling Star (GLOW) Little Egypt. Later on in the evening, fans can enjoy a special tribute evening event called Lasting Legacy: A Tribute to Women in Wrestling, of which Trish headlines.
Organizer, Co-Founder of Masters of Ring Entertainment (along with Co-Founder Charlie Hartman), Bambi Weavil talked about how the events were conceived.
“We always wanted to pay tribute to the ladies of pro wrestling in a way they haven’t been honored before. It’s something we feel very strongly about as long overdue and well-deserved,” she said. “We strongly feel that women have not been honored appropriately for their careers, accomplishments & sacrifices. We are proud that we are the first to pay tribute to women in wrestling. We approached all the talent involved with our concept, and it was enthusiastically welcomed as a revolutionary idea”.
