Masters of Ring Entertainment has announced that Trish Stratus will headline the event “Lasting Legacy: A Tribute to Women In Wrestling”. It will be the organization’s second event in Wilmington, NC, and it takes place at the Coastline Convention Center on May 23, 2015.
This will be Stratus’ first appearance in Wilmington and her first in North Carolina since she and Amy “Lita” Dumas” were in the main event of RAW over a decade ago. She will appear at the Pro Wrestling Fan Expo to sign autographs from 10 AM to 12 PM. She will also be involved with a Q&A panel for VIP ticket holders. More talent for the event will be announced in the near future, including interactive fan exhibits and wrestling matches. “Lasting Legacy” happens from 8-10 PM.
Masters of Ring Entertainment co-founder and president of marketing Bambi Weavil said: “We couldn’t be more honored and excited to have Trish Stratus be part of Lasting Legacy: A Tribute To Women In Wrestling! This event will be a very special evening as we are honoring past, present and future women who have taken part in the business in a multitude of ways from performing in the ring and beyond.”
Stratus added: “I’m honored to have been asked to be a part of this inaugural event. To be able to contribute to such a special event that will highlight the women in our industry really means a lot.”
Co-Founder and president of sales Charlie Hartman said: “We believe this event will be long remembered and talked about among pro wrestling fans, young and old, for many years to come.”
